Your first lines above describe to me an employee that needs additional training and experience.
To me an ideal apprentice would be someone who has the desire to do be the best job possible. Someone that I can instruct and properly train with a long term commitment to build up their experience, work skills and speed until they have the abilities and decision making process to complete tasks assigned with little supervision, then they may take over my business and I may retire!
I see. Thank you very much, it's all been very helpful. Shame for me you're not in NYC!
