How are y'all keeping like low level people in the company?

We just had our 3rd person dip who was a customer service lead making 60 in Vegas.

    I lost one, and I’m not replacing her. Overpaying for a downgrade, no thanks. I’ll wait for job market desperation to kick in so I don’t have to pay $20/hr for a $15/hr job. It’s inconvenient, but I can survive a year or so if I have to.

    Have lost 3 admin/secretarial people in four months.

    Looking at ways to, like we say, fuck off. Tired of this revolving door. I'll replace that shit with technology and outsourcing.

    Hire people over 50 for those positions. Less likely to be looking for the next gig that pays $1/hr more.

    Yep

    65 year old white guys are not in high demand

    I'd be happy to post here all day while one of you pays me to not do my job

    65 decades?

    60k for a customer service lead is fine. That person just sounds shitty, or you have a product that's shitty to support. Support/implementation people expect tools to wipe their asses, and that's not always realistic even at mid sized companies. Devs have to build those tools or the company has to pay for 3rd party shit.

    We generally promote customer service leads/manager eventually if they're good otherwise yeah, they will leave just to not have to do that job anymore.

    Eh we baited and switched the last chick. Didn't actually hire another one under her. So she dipped got a new one starting tomorrow.

    And I told our ownership team like hey dumbasses. They of course will dip if they have to do the bitch work
