wackOverflow1110194dMaybe explain your last two paragraphs to him. A rude wake up call might be what he needs.
N00bPancakes8910194dThey used to sit the college interns next to me since I got along with them.
I was a little floored by how many talked to me about how much they should be making and that they were like 'cheap slave labor' as interns. Meanwhile they output... pretty much jack squat.
Most had zero imitative, couldn't do much without hand holding, and weren't willing to take a chance and just try SOMETHING. I'd give them the speech of "Ok you're being given this as a challenge, nobody expects perfection or for this even to work, we just, we just want to see you try and see how it goes."
Nope, they wanted hand holding .... and were bothered that they weren't paid enough for not accomplishing what would be a couple hours of work for me .... that they couldn't do in weeks.
Also just left youtube on their screen playing all day ....
Granted some were pretty good and we did hire a few of them, but it was day and night with the good vs the bad.
Nobody listens anymore.
I feel like if you just showed up as an intern and need 'motivating' to...try. That's about all I need to know about them.
Kairpooph1034193dPersonally, I hate the complainers and whiners who still don't get the job done even though you've given them all the advice to the point you may as well just do their task yourself.
It's fine to bitch and moan about whether you're paid enough or that you deserve better - but prove it first. Show me and everyone else on the team why you deserve to complain. Because if you're already being treated with kid gloves and you still can't figure shit out, you probably need more training./experience.
Hell, if you're a junior and your seniors don't think so, you probably don't. Period. Because seniors will fight for their juniors who impress them. Unless they're assholes, then you should probably work somewhere else.
