I’m working very hard at the moment, but feeling let down by this particular job. Most of the staff I work with are either really fabulous or OK. I’m fine with OK, it’s the others, the ones bubbling under the surface.
My area team has a “manager” who it seems likes to take credit for other people’s work. I spent over four hours doing a job because bigwig managers where visiting, they came saw “manager” doing the job I had done and they got the credit. Didn’t even acknowledge I had done anything by taking to make me do it again. It was very obvious that I had done it! “Manager” also was nitpicking and making the rest of the team do silly tasks that never need doing.
Then there’s the overall management team, how many managers do you need at any one time? I looked into it for one day – seven managers were working, and this was a standard day. Then they complain that the labour costs are too high, joke!
Then we come onto having some training done whilst it’s quite, then manager who has watched you have said training complain that I hadn’t done my job. Well no, you’ve just witnessed me training. Don’t even get me started on the volume of training that needed to be done before you could even start working, yes relevant to most staff, but not so much for that area I’m working in. I’ve also got a workbook to complete then an online assessment followed by a training course. They made me do the online assessment before I’ve completed the workbook – most answers are from the workbook! Somehow I passed!
Now I’m waiting for my promised hours not the ones they feel like. I have made it easier by been available for most shifts, and can request days off. Most are Saturdays when it’s not too much of a problem, and not every Saturday.
So the end of this results in me wanting to find another job, with those regular hours. I found some more jobs, just need interviews and offers! But whilst I’m working I’m not getting further into debt.
