After working with a handful of them...there's some that have a good work ethic, and work hard and try to learn as much as they can. There's others that prefer to do nothing, and get insulted when asked to do their job.
So I prefer not to put a "millenial" nametag on anyone. I prefer to judge each person by what they bring to the table, what they're willing to do, and how they do it. (at work that is.)

Myself being a baby boomer, I find that I have a difficult time communicating with the millennials that work for me. Logic and hard work seems lost on them.

No hope none at all Call a generation what you will we rage against well every thing that is not us young or old .
But who do the young learn it from ?
Funny how all of this was created by mine and my parents and yet our kids are the ones we balm when it fails .
I loom at my 23 year old son a mix of things a father a worker ( who has worked 50 or more hours a week from 17 on )
A home owner who was smart enough to listen when i showed my kids just how credit works .
Who spends most of his extra money and extra time getting stoned .
Who IS NO DIFFERENT then almost every one i knew growing up and NOW You think your so special because you grew up in a day when a job meant a life time and benefits and YOUR son should what work his ass off for the same wage you made 25 years agio???
My son does work his ass of for wages I MADE 20 YEARS agaio doing work no different then i did .
Crap I dont blam the kids they SEE what you get paid THEY SEE the benefits You GOT they see no matter how hard how much they try GET pay Crap .
My generation was out getting stoned my generation was out getting layed my generation was out getting Busted ( not such a big deal then ) and drunk .
How is his any worse ?
I am 51 my father was a drunk who worked his ass off and was useless as a father. He is 77 or so .
My boss was a drunk who got off work and stayed drinking till he passed out old man old man indeeed .
OUR GENERATION has encouraged the arming of the world with weapons power enough to destroy it .
And you say the young ones are bad ??
We cheered to the fall of Russia we cheered to the million who died in our wars we back we cheered as family and children were torn apart then bitch when they run to any place safer then the places we destroyed .
No this younger generation isn't the worst my grandparents generation was and they passed it down to my parents then mine .
This generation has to deal with this cesspool we have given them . They do what they do BECAUSE we gave them every thing war famon destruction failing economy .
BUT we failed to give them HOPE .
Look around you my god the world is am mad house and they just never put on the blinders .
