“Well folks, here's one of those reviews that I wish I didn't need to write. Veronica in the early interview showed so much hope. Matter of fact it was between her and one other graphic designer. We had been offered a discounted rate for a trial period by the other designer who wanted to get their foot into our door, and to get the job Veronica matched their offer.
Veronica showed drive & interest in the beginning, and when she focused, she managed to do pretty good work. The problem is that she needed VERY close supervision, which unlike most freelancers, required constant checking up to make sure she was going the right direction. If you asked for a green button, you got blue. If you asked for X, you got F. As most of you, I believe communication and relationship building is critical. Veronica made it very clear early on this wasn't an area she had much interest in, but would try. Discussions had a great deal of time spent on re-explaining things over, sending screen shots w/ notes, etc. She billed you again for time spent fixing her admitted errors.
I believe Veronica does have potential, I had even tried positive affirmations and offering referrals in hopes this would be the trigger, that caused her to give more care to her work. Unfortunately things only got worse.
I'll spare you the details & the multiple examples I could easily reference. Aside from serious lack of focus, Veronica's biggest downfall is follow through. She has a tendency to over commit. "I'll get it done by 12 noon today", then push that off continuously for days and be un-reachable. And the kicker... "you are invading into my private life" was said to me. Because one of the small, but very important jobs she stated would be done nearly 10 days prior... and kept pushing off, I was asking for status on. In this single example, I have documented 9 different "I'll get it done" messages from her.
