I don’t think the kid wants a job at all.
There is a reason why nepotism shouldn’t exist in the workplace. It’s virtually impossible to be subjective when you have a relationship with the employee. My boss hired her nephew to start working in the cannabis dispensary. She told me to train the guy. Since I’m the assistant manager, I’m often in charge of training employees. It didn’t seem like a big deal until I found out that the kid was her nephew. The guy was goofing around on the first day and I told the manager that I didn’t think he was going to be a very good fit. It’s my job to weed out the bad hires before they become full time employees. That’s when I found out that the kid was her nephew. She told me that he just needed a chance. She said he had a rough childhood and he needed some guidance and a good job. I spent four days with the kid and he never spent a minute listening to a word that I said. He was more interested in looking at the marijuana supplies. I don’t think the kid wants a job at all. He might be more interested in the fifty percent discount we get on all marijuana supplies. It’s a great reason to work in a marijuana store, but it’s not going to keep the guy employed very long. If my boss doesn’t say something to the guy now, she might end up going down on the ship with him. The district manager won’t be very happy if she finds out that the manager is playing favorites with her idiot nephew.
