Sooo we hired a BDR looking to get out of the real estate world and dip his feet into tech. He's getting paid pretty decent too, we put him on the "senior" BDR comp. He hasn't quit his real estate company he's been at, and im getting the feeling that he's doing this for the base salary so he can brag to his friends about having "multiple streams of income"..
There's been many red flags like calling out, wearing a button up working from home (basically dressed up to do open houses and showings), showing up late, taking meetings from the car "while grabbing lunch"(with his button shirt) missing internal meetings, not coming to team trainings, activity isn't persistent and he's doing a good enough job to barely to book qualified meetings and getting to his number (1/4 months he's been here), but the quality has been horrendous and the meetings have been sketchy and many with "personal connections". He's also bringing some bad vibes to the team meetings or trainings by having that too cool for school mentality, and I feel like that might be negatively impacting my other reps.
I've called him out on his other job since he's on his real estate companies website a month a half ago and he's still on. I even called them for an employee verification check and he still worked their while being employed at our company for 2 months. He said he quit and I've really tried to work with him on a 12 month plan to get him to an AE position with realistic goals, targets and areas we need to improve on, but it doesn't seem like he's bought in.
A friend of mine checked MLS and my rep has 5 listings with his name under them as the realtor.. Do I give him another chance and try work this through, or should I fire him and put in this effort to other team members willing to contribute and who want to actually be here and get better?
@ managers in the war room.. what do you think ? Have you ran into ppl like this before?? I can go on and on about redflags and trying to be slick.. but Im getting sick just thinking about it. Honestly I wanna help this dude change his life and grow, but it seems like he's not bought in.. Im meeting with my HR business partner next week to hear their feedback, but I wanna hear what the war room has to say.
