Given the fact that we have labor union employees here and the labor protects these employees by collective bargaining agreements... how would you deal with a poor perfuming employee whom you have limited influence on?

2 Answers

I would be direct in describing the issue. I acknowledge feeling awkward about the situation and understand that my co-worker may feel embarrassed and defensive. I would think about exactly what I am requesting (e.g., do I want co-workers to stop wearing all scented products or just a certain one?) I would ask for their help, rather than making a demand. I avoid making judgments. I describe behaviors rather than attitudes and motivations. It's entirely possible my co-worker is unaware. It is inappropriate to suggest that a medical condition may be influencing their scent choices. I would treat my fragrant co-worker with the same respect and courtesy I want from him or her. Then thank him or her for understanding. Less

I would conduct myself as I would with any problematic employee and managed the process though common performance counseling practices. I would start with informal verbal discussions, documenting these conversations afterwards to myself and HR only. I would do my best to establish a professional relationship with the employee and see if motivational discussions would yield any improvement. Second level of engagement would be a more formal and advertised documented conversations with the employee, stressing the importance that we are a team and we all must contribute our best efforts towards the best interest of the department and company. It would be communicated that further escalating performance discussions would require a higher level of involvement and, should the actions of the employee not be corrected, that further disciplinary actions up to and including termination could result. From this point, it's really in the employees hands to address the issues and resolve them. Less

Was asked about my past experiences in the property management arena with an irate client and how I handled their issue.

Replied I had a CEO yelling at me about work being done in the parking lot and his employees having to walk into the building through dirt and debris. I explained there was never a good time to do this task but I would keep him in the loop as to what we were doing on a daily basis. (Was already informing his employees (and him) on a weekly basis) Less

Hey bud. You may want to question your references, and based on your post, I think you proved their decision correct. You likely don't have the facts, and definitely didn't take the high road. Good luck in your search. Less

Thanks for your comment. FYI, They had received my references and then scheduled the 4th interview with me, before they cancelled at the last moment... Less

I understand your frustration, While most of the companies are good enough to provide confirmation of your application and some even provide feedback after rejection or you're profile not been shortlisted. MDS does none of these and that explains all. I feel sad for people working in Engineering/Industrial field as most companies behave that way in our line of work and MDS is no exception. I urge people not to waste there time applying, they don't even bother to reply. Less

How to trouble shoot a problem, my abilities, how to handle grumpy people, and much more! I applied for a senior lead position then was told it would be for a tech 4 position 2nd shift. Then was told I would be the only tech on the shift, you could imagine the responsibility! Ive been a hands on manager for years and didnt mind the title as long as I was being compensated for all my skills and certs, in highly skilled and can do everything and anything thats put in front of me yet this company is unprofessional and don't have the decency to send an email that they had decided to go in a different direction!

As I have signed confidentiality agreement I cant share interview questions. But it was pure technical interviews and very interesting. You have to be strong professional in your occupation to get an offer.

I have answered most of the questions, but that was not enough to get an offer. I know which questions I gave wrong answers, because I checked after and improved my Knowledge Base. It is very fair interview process. Less

I attended Google data centre interview recently. The questions were purely application oriented and they testing your expertise in the field. I don't want to reveal the questions but everything is behavioral based. When you are in this situation how u face. They asked me nearly 15 questions. 8 from AHU problem faced daily by HVAC engineer. 3 questions from chiller. 1 from cooling tower, 2 from fire escape and pre actuated pipe. 1 from water treatment. All these questions were purely experienced based and this one cannot be answered other than the expertise who opened the chiller and AHU unit. Not even 1 question in basics, all questions are higher end. Less
