Day 17: Why You Should Not Hire When are Seeing Red (or Even Yellow) Flags


By: Brian Howard

If you see red (or even yellow) flags before hiring a potential team member, then slow down.

Here is an example of a red flag: if a potential team member shows poor follow-through skills in getting you requested documents, returning calls, or responding to emails before hiring her, imagine what life might be like once she is in the position.


a potential team member is most likely putting her best foot while trying to land the role. Don't ignore red (or even yellow) flags. When you see red flags before hiring a person, then step back and don't move forward. You will be glad in the future that you didn't ignore these warning signs.
