Hiring and starting of employment: Respect of the basic rules of teamwork

Author :

Is it really important to be on time?

In the vast majority of cases, yes. Your employer will expect you to be on time without even asking you.

Delays are often seen as a lack of respect for one's employer and colleagues. If you are delayed by an uncontrollable event, have at least the courtesy to notify your supervisor.

Find out about your employer's policies regarding delays. For some, delays can be considered as absences and result in a reduction in pay. In others, employees can take time away during their lunch breaks or at the end of the day. Inform yourself: this will avoid unpleasant surprises on both sides.

An employer has already accused me of going out too often and going to bed too late. It seems to me that it does not concern him!

You are absolutely right that what you do with your hobbies does not concern your employer. That said, he and your colleagues are entitled to expect you to have energy at work!

If you are still tired and have trouble concentrating, you risk making mistakes, sometimes serious or dangerous. Your colleagues will have to compensate for your lack of attention or your reduced performance. Over time, your employer may well decide that it is better for everyone to replace you with someone more energetic and more focused. Think about it.
