Consequently, all terms and conditions of my employment may be changed or withdrawn at Company’s unrestricted option at any time, with or without good cause. No implied, oral, or written agreements contrary to the express language of this agreement are valid unless they are in writing and signed by the President of the Company (or majority owner or owners if Company is not a corporation). No supervisor or representative of the Company, other than the President of the Company (or majority owner or owners if Company is not a corporation), has any authority to make any agreements contrary to the foregoing.

  • 14. HIRING IS LIKE COURTING FOR MARRIAGE • The interviewer concludes, “Well, he/she is not perfect, but I’ll train him after I hire him.”
  • 15. HOW DO YOU IMPROVE THE INTERVIEW PROCESS? • Sound familiar? Have you ever regretted hiring someone on the very first day? It hurts, doesn’t it? Or someone asks, “What idiot hired that person?” • But you don’t give up. You pay for training, trying to mold the person to do a job he will never do well. Eventually you begin the sad process of firing the employee. This, too, is a traumatic and often costly process. • In our litigious society, it can be very costly.
