Hate to Complain, BUT…

Two weeks ago, I finally got a job, after seven long months without a paycheck.  To put it mildly, I was thrilled!

Well, two weeks later, I’m back to feeling frustrated and depressed–and it’s because of the job.

The money is ok, and God knows I need all I can get!  However, the drama and just pure bullshit that seem to go along with this position are already wearing on me–heavily.

It’s 1:15 p.m.  I have to be at work at 3.  I feel anxious and very down.  NOT a good combination.  Especially after only two weeks!

The first problem was “Gnatalie”.  She just got a mini-promotion and thinks she’s been crowned “The Queen”.  Whatever.  She’ll get over it eventually.  Maybe even without my help!  😉

I’ve been working mostly eight and nine hour shifts.  Often, without the full break I’m entitled to (as per company policy).

The schedule runs from Monday to Sunday.  The manager posts the schedule on Friday night.  (Even as a previous manager, I find that a bit ridiculous and quite unfair to the employees.)

I was scheduled for two days this week.  Monday and Tuesday.  Yesterday, I heard a comment that made it sound like this could change.  When?  Why?  Is anyone going to let me in on this?  I could definitely use more hours.  However, I do have a problem if they believe they can change my schedule at any time.  I am an employee, but that does not mean that they own me.

I’m starting school in September–hopefully full-time–so I had thought that this job would be a simple part-time job that would earn me a little money until I graduate.  Quite frankly, unless things improve dramatically, I don’t know if I can handle the stress of both!

Wish me luck that I make it through another day…

    I wish you the all the best in handling your current situation. It is always important though to consider that stress can wear you down. It is unhealthy to stay in a job that feels ‘shitty’, as I think you expressed.

    About, co-office workers who drain your nerves, just ignore. My friend once told me that the secret to her youthful looks is this:

    ‘Let me , BE their problem. Not the other way around.’

    Not much of a wisdom, I guess, but sure works for her:-) It could work for you:-)

    Good afternoon from this place called Southeast Asia.

    Cheers!
