Personnel moves in Corporate Hades have been particularly draining as of late. I had to dispose of one person who reported to me for over a decade. It was well deserved, and I had no recourse, but nonetheless it was not a pleasurable experience.
As a result, I am now in the process of attempting to hire for two positions. As stressful as it is to be the interviewee, it is no big thrill having to do the interviewing either. You are sitting across from someone who's usually desperate for a job and who will say anything to get said job. So, I have to sell the person on how wonderful my company is, while attempting to engage my bullshit detector to make sure it's the right person.
Obviously, it's better to be on my side of the desk, but it's a real pain in the arse to go through the effort of speaking to a dozen or so people and take the chance on hiring one of em and hoping it works out.
Plus, I always feel guilty when I am looking at someone who has no chance in Hell of getting hired.
Time for another interview.
