Tell me about a time you had to discipline or fire an employee you liked. How did you handle it? (Bad & Good Answers)

Yeah...I tell you everybody I've ever worked with is just been so fantastic...there was this one really sad time I worked with this woman she is I felt she is the sweetest woman I ever met in my entire life, she was just really great and yes she did not always show up right on time she didn't like...necessarily finished her work you know, she puts another things first in front of that but she was a great person, so my boss came to me and said...that I was gonna have to fire her, she really was'nt hawling in all of things and I was gonna fire her and so I took her inside and I said look this is not about you and me I think you're wonderful and I hope we'll always be friends but i've been put in this position and i've been told that I'm gonna have to fire you and I'm just really sorry about that... Yeah...that happens I've worked with fantastic teams, I've worked with great people,...there was one time when we had an employee, he'd been a fantastic employee and he'd been with the company for a long time but his work was really going into decline and i've met with him several times we laid down a road map for how he might do better but he didn't improved and I began to see that he was hurting the team and that he was costing the company money so I made a decision to let him go, it wasn't easy it wasn't pretty,...but it was a great thing to do to take care of the company and to take care of my team
