If I were in the shoes of the business owner I would have to choose Jaime over Avery for multiple reasons. Consistency is key and by the sounds of it, Jaime has just that. If on a day to day basis I know I can count on Jaime as an owner that is great. And when in drastic situations or scenario’s I need Jaime to clutch up I already know she is giving me her best work. However, when looking at Avery you are rolling the dice with this one. There is no guarantee that he will perform. As a boss I would struggle with this because I expect that all employees are a direct representation of our company and Avery should be no different. If he is slacking off 90% of the time and only works hard 10% I do not care how great he is at what he does. I would take Jaime 10 out of 10 times.
I would say that Avery exceeds in jobs that have to deal with sales. And this sale job is the type where you are paid off of commission. This is good for the company because he is not getting paid hourly or salary but rather has to work for his money. When working in a sales job he can come in clutch and out perform everyone when he wants to like he it is mentioned. I would want Avery to be onsites where more money is offered as he has such a high-performance ceiling and when he is at his best very few can compete with him. This allows Avery to be more valuable because he only has to work when he wants to and can make large sums of money in short amounts of time or in very few interactions.
A job where Jaime is a more valuable than Avery is just about every job. Having an employee that is consistent in what they do is the name of the game. If Jaime can close more deals at a higher rate, sell more items, reach out to more people she is your best option. I would not put her in a high stress situation or environment because it seems as if she would fold under pressure and would make for Avery to be more valuable.
