Phone Calls/Texting on Jobs?

How many of you have seen an increase in your employees/workers being more and more distracted from the work at hand because of a cell phone call and/or they are receiving text messages from one of their friends? Is this becoming a problem for anyone one?

It is my peeve. I got a little childish one day and lost my temper. I took the phone (after three warnings that were bordering on pleading) and threw the phone across a yard. I used to allow it on the way to a jobsite and that is now also done.

Or what you can do when you see em texting on the job, just turn the hose on them and make sure to aim straight at their phone.:got-hooligan:

Phones stay in their vehicles. Family members have my mobile number, in case of emergencies. I give my employees breaks and they have time then to catch up on their phone calls/text messages.

Ok its 9:30 he was supposed to be here at 9:00, He is now GONE!!
That sucks.

Employees has been the hardest thing for me to deal with at my first year of business. Marketing, sales, bookkeeping, getting jobs, all have been easy. Finding good, reliable employees that I can pass the wand to seems impossible.
