8. 8. things to watch out for

8.1. not giving them room to improve

8.1.1. There are bosses that give very easy tasks giving the employee no room to improve. They gave tasks like posting hundreds of tweets on twitter, doing hundreds of profile linking and not explaining why they are doing it. The employees can be happy with the salary with very easy tasks, but the question is, what did they learned from what they are doing? None.

8.2. Being overly harsh

8.2.1. My friends boss some are very authoritative, fault finder and over judgmental, it creates a gap between employee and employer, it makes them work because of fear of losing their job.

8.3. having impossible standards

8.3.1. Have impossible standards. A friend of mine was working for this guy who hired a manager. All of them were required to wave on skype for roll call. If you don't wave or say hi, you're fired. He got fired obviously. They were made to blackhat since the guy had no SEO background. Hired managers who had no background too. When they gave their opinions or discouraged certain strategies, he said they were being difficult. Also, the guy made assumptions and said they are not allowed to be absent, even with storms, sickness or family emergencies. He was a monster. My friend lost weight until he was fired. :)

8.4. payment

8.4.1. always pay on time

8.4.2. even if they don't produce results, pay them

8.4.3. their lives depend on your payments

8.5. don't tell other people the name of your employees. They'll contact them. Always.
