DLSE mgr. Jorge Gomez takes another crap on another employee...this time, Vicky Tamoush is leaving the DLSE. Mr. Gomez should leave, as he has failed.

Santa Ana office supervisor Jorge Gomez lost another substandard public servant, but the worst substandard public servant in Santa Ana still collects a paycheck.  Who?  Jorge Gomez.  Vicky Tamoush would still be here if Jorge had properly supervised her.  When she screwed up, and it was often, all he had to do was to crack the whip and warn her not to do it again.  Instead, he shirked his supervisory duties and chose cowardice over supervision.  Jorge Gomez is a supervisor, and he failed to supervise.  His working title wasn't "coward," though one would think he is paid to avoid issues and concerns.
At the end of the day, his job was to increase Vicky's level of performance to the public.  Jorge Gomez failed as a supervisor because her performance became so substandard that she left the DLSE.  Without detracting from Vicky's faults, there are no bad employees, only bad supervisors.  His job was to monitor and evaluate performance.  His job was to communicate deficiencies.  His job was to take corrective action, if needed.  Jorge Gomez stacked the deck against Vicky Tamoush and probably told her to leave (or else).  Vicky Tamoush didn't turn into shit overnight, and that's why Jorge Gomez is to blame.    In this respect, Jorge Gomez has failed miserably, and this wasn't his first substandard employee.
Based upon my investigation, Jorge Gomez has known about Vicky Tamoush's departure for at least two weeks.  They have failed to schedule her hearings, knowing that she'll be leaving.  She had her custom desk removed from the state building, and Jorge Gomez kept this a secret.  Jorge Gomez is good at keeping secrets, but as with any secret, it eventually leaks.  My secret is that I know how Jorge leaked it.
A similar situation happened to Mary Tokar, who retired before Jorge Gomez could correct her identified deficiencies.  Jorge Gomez had 15 years to bring Mary up to par, and he failed there, too.  15 years and he couldn't get it right.  By my math, DLC Mary Tokar retired and DLC Vicky Tamoush transferred out of the DLSE within the last five months of each other.  It seems that Jorge Gomez does not know how to manage, but it seems that he does know how to be a coward and he does know how to create the worst office morale in any state agency.  Oh yeah, today is his wedding anniversary; at least he's kept that together.

What would you do blogger boy? Fire everybody? We should all be happy you're not in management. If only things were as simple as you think they are. Welcome to life.

"There are no bad teams, only bad leaders"
- US Navy Seals

I think the US Navy Seals have a better grasp on employment relations & leadership management than DLSE.

At the end of the day, the best manager can lead & develop the worst employee, but mediocre managers are just that.

Good morning Mr. Blogger, glad to see you are on the web. Re: Seals v. DLSE, one big difference, military vs. civil service. True, leaders make a big difference but even so there are bad employees and thankfully civil service makes it harder to discipiine and term-just ask anyone in the "at will" private sector. Even though we may disagree, I'm glad you have this blog.

This is Christopher Lotts....if I'm next, then why are they taking so long?

I can't wait to show my statistical performance at the adverse action hearing...cannot wait! The bonus is that Jorge and Abby will be held accountable in the process.

The longer you take, the weaker your talk.

Dean Fryer your being a homosexual does not bother us. But what bothers us is your getting a free paycheck and for supporting and colluding with Jim Culbeaux to cheat the state.

The Blogger has a more sordid record of public service than most of the persons he maniacally raves about. The Blogger has made more stops on the public tit expressway than Bill Bixby visited small towns on the old Incredible Hulk TV series. Same crap, different agency.
FORMULA
1. Transfer to a New Agency
2. Figure out you're smarter than all the managers.
3. While completing basics of job, engage in progressive insubordination and drive supervisors crazy.
4. Burn all promotional bridges with behavior and complain that you're not given a shot at advancement.
5. Occasionally try for peace officer jobs only to be
mysteriously DQ'd.
6. Rinse and repeat

I hear The Blogger's personality is even starting to effect his "hobby" income.....

If Jorge had half a brain, he would know that VT was the biggest snitch in the office. VT had a direct line to Abby and she made the most use of it. Jorge could never figure out how Abby knew about all the Shit going on in our office. Jorge should be kissing PUC's ass for taking that bitch off his hands. Then again, he probably gave VT a glowing reference in order for PUC to take her. Jorge is up shit's creek if PUC has a hit man.
