Have to write a letter of recommendation for that fired employee? Here are a few suggested phrases:-
For the chronically absent:
# "A man like him is hard to find."
# "It seemed her career was just taking off."
For the office drunk:
# "I feel his real talent is wasted here."
# "We generally found him loaded with work to do."
# "Every hour with him was a happy hour."
For an employee with no ambition:
# "He could not care less about the number of hours he had to put in."
# "You would indeed be fortunate to get this person to work for you."
For an employee who is so unproductive that the job is better left unfilled:
# "I can assure you that no person would be better for the job."
For an employee who is not worth further consideration as a job candidate:
# "I would urge you to waste no time in making this candidate an offer of employment."
# "All in all, I cannot say enough good things about this candidate or recommend him too highly."
For a stupid employee:
# "There is nothing you can teach a man like him."
# "I most enthusiastically recommend this candidate with no qualifications whatsoever."
For a dishonest employee:
# "Her true ability was deceiving."
# "He's an unbelievable worker."
