Volunteer Etiquette

Volunteer Etiquette

What do you do when they don’t do as you asked and don’t ask permission to update your software, play on your Photoshop, watch videos or listen to music all day, logging you out of your profiles, shutting down your corporate uploads of files, etc. ?

We recently had a volunteer assigned to us by a volunteer service. These volunteers were sent to them by their employers to do community service for nonprofits and get paid for it while on light duty.

Mine said, “I’m just burning time.” That was very apparent by the lack of progress no matter how simple the assignment.

He was supposed to be with us one month. He lasted one week because I was very generous.

But enough was enough.

What are some ways to curb this? Has anyone else had volunteers like this? What did you do?
