Overtime...

Hey there all. I was suppose to have had last night and tonight off. But two people called in sick last night and guess who got called in to work. I went in because I knew by the end of the week I will have overtime. And I know because I went in last night that I will be punished next week for the overtime.

You see how it works is they give me the overtime but then the following week they only give me four days to work with instead of my five.. It sucks royally but that is how it goes.Anyway I am on my way to the park with the girls.

The Bald One has moved out and into his parents new apt with them. I will miss having the conversations when he comes in at night but I understand that he has to do what he has to do. I will also miss having the extra car at my disposal.. LOL. I like his car. Its a two door Pontiac Sunfire.. Nice car. But I know I can call him almost anytime and ask for his car esp on my paydays.. Well I suppose I need to get the girls to the park.

take care and I will be around later on. N...

I used to love overtime. I depended on it.But these days most places try to avoid paying it at all costs.

Sucks that they can haul back your hours when they've asked you to work more. Maybe next time tell them you'll come in as long as they don't take your hours away.

Ohthat sucks. Again I sugest talking to a supervisor about it. Tell them it feels like when you take an overtime shift...the next week you get less hours.

And besides...you're looking for other work right? Keep going!

There are very few managers (if any) that care about the employee, Tweety. It's all about showing the company the largest profit possible. That's how they keep their jobs and yes... it sucks big time. I've worked many jobs over the years and have found the larger the company or corporation is, the worse it gets. It's a rare boss who actually cares about you. You're a "tool" they use to make money. A very unpleasant part of life but one we have to live with. I doubt talking to your supervisor will change the way they operate. I wouldn't suggest it. I don't know your supervisor or the manager, but my guess is if you complain he or she may start looking around for a reason to get rid of you. That's also something I've seen way too often. Whatever you decide to do, good luck, and good luck with finding that new job. :)

Yeah, McD's like Wal-Mart is notorious for not wanting the overtime and they'll find ways of making up for it.
