I want some input from some other people, not just officers. I myself is not an officer by no means at my department. But on to the issue: We have a few employees that work with us that complain about everything. We as a department have new new rigs, new fire gear, and other new things, the department has come a long way in the last few years. We don't make lots of money but most of us really enjoy our job, we have done many things to turn up the moral, and are in the process for the postive out come, but at the same time this has mad some people alittle angry at the chief's and other staff such as the Shift BC'S and so fore. The last shift we had a small fire and this person wanted to belittle every process we done and even the crew's, so after arriving back to the station, the person was complaining about washing fire hose and doing busy work for the shift, clean trucks, inside and outside, wash parking lot down and other small things to keep the staion looking nice. I got tired of the complaining and told him if he didn't like it her to find some-where else to work. That shut him up for a while but it started up all over again. And he just can't stand to be proved wrong about anything, he has some big top notch degree and swears he knows more than anyone. He never wants to learn anything new about his job, go to any classes, nothing comes in and complains about everyting.
Question? Does other departments have these kind of people in the stations? And if so how you as co-workers deal with them. What would you do to handle it?
