....day job complaint (multi part)

Supervisor/co-manger at work left just after noon today (without letting me know ahead of time) that she was going on vacation until the fifth of December.

Have a major international shipment that needs to leave next Wednesday (this customer usually has us ship at moth’s end).

This person will be gone through the end of the month when we have to get all orders out and I need to close the account billing.

This person will be gone when I also have to close all the Digital Print accounts for the month.

I am still not 100% due to a virus that keeps hanging on.

When I put in my request for a week off in December (haven’t has any significant time off since last April and I was sick most of the time) I was given ‘tude. (guess it doesn’t matter I’ve dragged myself in sick the last couple weeks when I should have been home in bed).  Request will not be looked at until this person gets back.

Every year I usually take off a week for the holidays, but this year a couple people (with less years than I have) jumped ahead of me so no holiday week for me. When I mentioned this, I just received more ‘tude.

It’s like they only care about me when I give to the company but when I ask for one little thing for myself, it’s like I am not committed to the company (admittedly it is getting to the point with the way I am being treated, it is becoming increasingly hard to support a company that no longer seems to care about those who put themselves out to keep things working).

Guess seventeen years of faithful service means squat.

This person has less.

I really hate the service industry.

Wishing I had work to complain about. I get paid by the job and it seems we lack in that department.

Sounds like security… Hours can be really random, and some weeks you may not work at all :(

Whats upsetting is that many security firms dont like you if you work for another… no matter if they are only prepared to have you work 4 hours a week!

I previously worked two security jobs… One with a patrol group, offering perminent hours, with a holliday over xmas, as well as University static guard duties… and the other had random hours, mostly nightclub and taxi rank and events…

The later contacted me offering one shift for the “Next” week, with minimal hours. I turned it down, since my primary patrol job offered me 32 hours over two weeks with 3 weeks notice, and I was sent a “text message” from the nightclub one effectively firring me because I turned down a 4hr shift that had 5days notice. First off, VERY unprofessional for firring me in a txt msg, and secondly, firing me for simply turning down a minimal hours 1 off job is insulting.

In the end, I was happy to leave them. I’ve had consistent work with the patrol group… only issue is the annual holiday period over xmas, but nothing I cant get through. These guys roster me a month in advance, and are all to happy to have me work multiple jobs. I just wont do so after my experience with the previous 2nd job.

Pretty shabby getting laid off with a text. Modern living hey. I fell out with a boss and got many texts, seems to be a management style *rolls eyes*

Text messages are fine with friends and family, there is appropriate uses for text… But it is by no means professional, especially for serious work related conversation. To be laid off the job in a text message tells me its their “easy way out” They appear to lack the ability to do it “face to face” and if they cant do so, then perhaps they shouldn’t be in management because it’s a childish act.

The complications of text messaging is most noticeably the fact that read messages can easily be misunderstood due to the lack of facial expression and voice tone required for effective communication. For example, a joke can easily be misinterpreted as a offensive or angry comment. The same is true for forums and chat rooms… you see a lot of misunderstood comments, then the persons involved each trying to explain that what was said was not intended to be read that way lol

You gotta love technology LMAO. My current boss dislikes text messages, and no matter how brief the info needs to be conveyed, it’s always a call or face to face. For me, that’s how it should be with management.

Anyways… I feel things have been getting too serious for the complaint thread… Thinking I need to post something stupid LMAO

I hope my ear heals up pretty soon.  Doc said it was infected.
