Job Evaluation Don’ts…
Don’t evaluate yourself.
Don’t agree to or identify deficiencies.
Don’t get involved in confrontation.
Don’t accept inaccurate information, erroneous comments, or hearsay. Request that detailed information be provided in order to set the record straight.
Don’t assume that all positive comments will appear on the record. Request that they be included.
Don’t hesitate to postpone the conference if you are not ready. Request another time.
Don’t agree to ambiguous and/or open-ended goals or criteria that could result in post-evaluation difficulties. Insist that goals be measurable, reasonable, and positive.
Signing the Record…
It should be understood that the employee’s signature merely indicates that the employee is aware of the document and/or the evaluation conference. It should not indicate agreement. If the employee believes that the signature may denote agreement, then add a statement before signing, such as “receipt acknowledged.”
