PostSubject: WTF Work!   Mon May 17, 2010 4:19 am

So, I figure I'd start a thread where you (I) can rant about work. I mean, in whatever job you do, you will come across complete morons - whether they are customers/consumers or your co-workers or bosses. And you're friends are just tired of hearing you talk about work (not like they can follow most of the time, and hey, they got problems, too), so go ahead and rant here.

I, for one, have got a lot of beef with my job, but I don't want to quit because (1) it's a really convenient job for me, (2) I'm dedicated to these people I take care of until they leave our company's services, (3) it's really quite an easy job and way better than working as a cook or dishwasher or server, and (4) it's really an awesome job that I really love doing.

So, my ranting about work... first lemme tell you what I do (and let me know what you do): I take care of people with mental disabilities. My position is called Direct Support Staff and basically, I'm a caretaker. I administer medications and help people with mental disabilities learn to live independently (it's the ultimate goal with a very low success rate due to so many factors). Lately, the most ridiculous thing about my job is crappy managing during the transition of getting a new house manager. She almost never answers her phone leaving the newbs (who have never done a job like this before) on their own and messing up on things that really can't be messed up (meds, rules, etc.) It all leaves the environment unstable causing the individuals to react badly making everybody's job harder.

I dunno, it sounds like a pretty rewarding job, theres assholes everywhere you work, but at least where you're at now has its positive aspects.

Your post had more exclamation marks than Against Me!'s live album.

Seriously though, it sounds like you run a tight ship, and you should be commended for that. I'd stay if I was in your position =)

I'm looking for a job right now so I'm not going to read your post because it'll just bum me out and unmotivate me. Also its quite verbose.

Sorry about your job though.

Fixed. So much more concise now.

Sorry about that, posting while sleep deprived causes me to be way too wordy and act slightly drunk. There, now, topic back on.

Regional manager's coming in tomorrow. Properly dubbed "No-Show Joe." So, the entire warehouse gets into cleaning mode, getting every nook and cranny, etc, etc. There have been around 4 or 5 times since I started (September) that we've thought he was coming when he just never showed up. I think some upper management people came once or twice, but it wasn't No-Show Joe. So, basically, he's a goddamn prick.

lol I was a half hour late and I was still the first one there at my job last night. My boss didn't even show up.

Our schedules only have the date and our name, no specific times. It's pretty funny.

We're super unorganized as far as scheduling goes but it still works.

I was 30 minutes late, had to open by myself, and since a,) the idiots in riverside didn't send the daily paper work b.) the idiot truck driver didn't leave it at the warehouse, or c.) the idiot truck driver didn't bring it, I had to print all the paper work out manually. I still opened only 15 minutes late. It was sick. This is why when I get shitfaced drunk and don't show up sometimes I don't get fired. I put out twice the work in half the time as anybody else 95 percent of the time. The other 5 percent of the time I just don't show up for inexcusable reasons. I think my boss realizes that fact and lets me slide when I fuck up big time. Either that or I'm completely irreplaceable, I haven't figured it out yet, but definitely one of the two...

BTW, I'm a District Manager for a local newspaper distribution company.

Janitor at Costco. Apparently one of the only departments the regional manager didn't complain about. (No-Show Joe actually showed. )

Retail is pretty much all politics. I bust my ass and work long shifts almost everyday, but I'm pretty sure if the managers disliked me they'd find some kind of loophole way to get me fired.

There's over 100 employees at my store and a large handful of them have been let go recently, (not) surprisingly it's all the people that have some kind of personal beef with a manager. Luckily I've known my managers since I was in high school so they all know & like me pretty well. I just keep my head down and work. I need a job.

^^^ That.


Also, it annoys me when I'm trying to clean the women's washroom, and I've got my little sign up there and shit, and then people walk up, look at me waiting to get into the washroom, look at the sign and then just walk in anyways, and then complain to me that it's dirty when they come out. That specifically has only happened a few times, and one time she went and complained to some supervisor. It's still a little annoying trying to get in when people just walk in anyways. Some woman just about smacked her face on the pole going across the entrance which was awesome.

Everyone's pretty cool about that, though, they know people don't like to let me into the washroom. Especially since half of the shoppers at Costco are either pregnant women, women with a baby's diaper to change or women with toddlers. Can't deny them the washroom.
