Thanks to everyone for your help with this. You're molding me into something that might one day begin to resemble a manager.
Sometimes new employees will be on probation for a while, meaning that you can dismiss them for any reason. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to go through several months of warnings if it was obvious within three days that they're not going to work out.
That's a great idea. I will make this part of the process with new hires. Does anyone not do this?
