Today I have to work late. Nope was not a planned working late day, Someone called in sick and when there is just 4 people 2 of which are part time in your department, things like that happen. The girl who called in was very sick and a good friend of mine so I don't mind to much.
It was going to be a 9am-9pm day, However the other Fulltime person said he would work half of it so I only am supposed to be here until 7pm, which is not too bad.. The thing that kinda gets me though, I am going to call my Coworker DP.. DP said if he was working the night shift tonight he was going to leave early and then come in at 5 when I left.
Because he had some "errands" he had to do.. which is fine..But he's is covering the 7-9 shift only and i'm going to be here until 7.. He still left early..even though he could have left at 4:30 5:00 and got what he needed to get done and probably be back by 7 to relive me.. Me I've been here since 9am and I am working until 7 and I did not leave early at all. Not that I have anywhere to go. Just the principle of the situation.
Over the summer we cut way back at work, and I am one of about 25 people who got to keep their jobs out of like 60. There used to be 2 full time people, plus a full time Manager, plus 3 part timers in my customer service department. Now we are down to 4 people 2 of which are part time and do not work everyday.
So that was a big cutback, but honestly some of the people we had we really did not need. We are working fine on the people that we have now, Until one of us gets sick then it all goes downhill.
I was doing all the work, now I get some help but still do the majority. But the way I see it is as long as the people who matter know I do all the work, That is all I need. They know how hard a worker I am and that I pretty much run the department,If I am sick and call off I will get a call at least 2 times. Which means I am important. Which is fine, I have had so many jobs that I try my best and get Shit on, Now I finally feel appresiated and love my job!
Gonna go try to figure out a way to stick a video walkthrough of my Job on a post.. Not sure how to post videos yet but i'm sure I will figure it out..
