Business savvy

Today, my nephew, who I was assured had previous experience, was closing jobs down on the computer after dealing with the customers on the phone without processing the payment for any of their orders. He’s been working for me for weeks. God knows how much money I’ve lost. FML

You are responsible for your business, and making sure everyone is trained. Relatives are notorious screw ups, otherwise they wouldn’t be hitting up the Aunties for jobs.

Even with experience, every job is different and requires a different level of attention. YDI for not managing your business properly and ensuring he had all the knowledge prior, as well as following up to ensure he understood his duties.

You probably shouldn't have let the new hire work on something as important as taking payment without being supervised, huh?

Nepotism at it's finest.

All jobs I've worked at had training for new hires. Yeah, you could trust your family, but you should also not leave anyone alone to do the job until you at least witness them doing the job properly at least once without guidance from you. Before you even let him go about doing it, you should have verified he could do it. An hour watching him do the job the first few times could have saved you a ton of money.
