Darren wrote in for The Sitch because he’s having reservations about hiring his sister. He’s the hiring manager and genuinely believes his sister is the most qualified person for the job, but he wonders if there are potential consequences he might be missing. There’s another candidate they could promote from within, but she’s apparently not as qualified as his sister.
People were divided on the issue. Most CALLS said she should NOT hire the sister and instead promote from within because the new person could take to the new job quickly and perform well. At the time of writing this, facebook comments leaned in favor of hiring the sister as long as there’s minimal contact between them at work. We don’t want to mix business with personal life too much!
