  • To see who is going to work out the best. Sometimes they do this and eliminate the one that doesn't work out. They probably could not decide. That would tick me off.

  • Because there is enough work to justify it.

  • I agree with m-avi. So many times people get hired and it comes out they didn't really want the job for whatever reason so they show up when they feel like it or make petty complaints. I think it is a smart thing to do to hire two. My husband was in management but never considered doing this. I would never want him to be a manager again!
