What Would You Rather Do? Wednesday-Professional Edition

Like you all know, I quit my job back in the summer to be a stay-at-home mommy. But there are still plenty of times that I ponder professional type scenarios. So I thought I would throw one out for What Would You Rather Do? Wednesday.

So tell me, if you were an employer would you rather have:

An employee who does a mediocre job but is completely trustworthy (won't steal from the company, honest with time, etc.)


An employee who ROCKS at their job but you don't trust.

I'd like to know what all you pros out there think (that includes you WM you probably would have the best perspective on this question of anyone out there). Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm still a professional. Well, I AM a professional...a professional diaper changer, laundry doer, house picker upper, dishes washer, homework assister, school get the point!

Oh--and for last week's question...I'd take the 10 siblings. Don't know what I'd do without my siblings. They are my best friends.

Happy Wednesday!

I guess I would have to say the mediocre trustworthy employee. I don't do well with shady peeps.

Trustworthy employee!

Boy, there are some days I'd like to "escape" to the professional world. Ha!

A rocking employee has to be trusted or they are not a rocking employee. As soon as we deem them to not be trustworthy they are gone. No questions asked.

If I don't trust'em, I don't need'em.

I think we are all in agreement here! An employee who isn't trustworthy will hurt the business and how can my other employees trust me if I take rockin performance over bad values.

And I think you forgot your a domestic accountant, conflict mediator, and environmental specialist!

I'll take mediocre anyday. I can't stand not being able to trust.
