I have had the misfortune of having had to terminate the same employee twice. Their performance was dismal, the team morale was lower because they saw that he just wasn't pulling his weight, and there was never improvement, only excuses. He was let go.

The same person moved to a new employer, and later on I ended up there too. And lo and behold, I became his supervisor again. And the same shenanigans were present, all the way down to the team being dismayed. I worked hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, to show that I wanted to help him improve, and in the end it was all just games and excuses. Round two. Not pleasant.

He thought I had it out for him. He was wrong. I have it out for lousy employees who don't respond to any assistance and make excuses and bring down morale. And in both cases, there was a palpable boost when that person was let go. Everyone on the team was relieved- it was like a weight had been lifted. Sometimes you really do have to look out for the rest of the team.

wow that is rough! i can see why the guy thought you had it in for him, but it sounds like he was making the same mistakes, and not learning from the past. It is strange how some people like this ace the interview process but turn out to be a really bad choice later.
