Would you PLEASE start doing something about those who refuse to do their jobs properly thus resulting in a serious waste of taxpayer dollars???
I am so sick and tired of employees who don't do their jobs, who sit in their office on their cell phone (sometimes cell phone AND office phone at the same time) all day long, who have friends visit them constantly and who continue to close their office door intentionally sending the message "I don't care about your problem" to the people they are supposed to be assisting--this EVEN though they have been asked numerous times by different supervisors to straighten out their behavior!!!
The people who have to pick up the pieces and fix the problems caused by these slackers are sick and tired of this behavior. They are sick and tired of getting a simple "no" when they ask a question instead of an explanation of WHY it is no so they can find another solution! They are sick of being told that it's someone else's fault when in fact the reason it's screwed up is because some slacker didn't do their job!
And another thing---shame on the people who have supervised slackers for years and never taken serious action to put a stop to the behavior. Shame on them for being afraid to do the right thing because it's a "sensitive" situation. Please! Sensitive? It's because of R-A-C-E!
If a person does NOT do their job properly or at all then action should be taken in accordance with personnel guidelines. Unfortunately at many institutions, especially educational institutions, the hands of those in supervisory positions can sometimes be tied because they are afraid of the backlash. And then there are those who don't do anything about it because they don't want to. Both situations exist at institutions like UF.
Oh if only the taxpayers who fund these institutions knew the truth about how their hard-earned taxpayer $$ are spent on employees who do nothing all day long, collect a paycheck and some pretty damn good benefits!
