Hiring a Gen Z is a nightmare! They don't answer the phone and disappear on

Some employers believe that Gen Z may be the most selfish generation, wanting everything but giving nothing in return. Many new employees who barely manage to pass an interview are fired on their first day of work, writes The Telegraph.

"A nightmare" is how James McNeil describes his experience working with Gen Z.

According to him, although Gen Z has talent in technology, they lack daily life skills, and often avoid face-to-face communication.

They were constantly looking for flexible work and had an automatic assumption that they could work from home, McNeil adds


Jade Arnell says: Gen Z doesn't care about anyone else but their personal space, and what they need and want. They don't seem to have the bigger picture of thinking.

Another entrepreneur Shoshanna Davis agrees that Gen Z has issues, such as reluctance to pick up the phone or reluctance to make video calls, but she thinks there are 'cute reasons' behind these behaviours.

“Most people have 10 or 11 years of work experience; we have Gen Z coming into work today where that experience was canceled because of Covid, so they're really lost and they've never worked in an office before," she says.
