After 15 years of gradually losing people (and we're all old), they hired two new guys. Maybe I won't have to work 50 / 60 hours per week now. Right?
I worked a week with the one guy. He just got out of the Navy (mid 20's?). He's a very nice guy and easy to work with. He's got the technical background.
But he had his phone 1' from his face, 100% of the time.
An hour commute on the first day. Not a peep out of him. I pretty much just gave up on showing him anything, and just did all the work. Even when we were talking to the customer managers at the start and end of the day. 100% phone.
I don't think he was watching movies. A lot of it sounded like japanese cartoons, as far as I could tell.
