I finally got a job. When I went to the orientation after I was hired I found out that it was minimum wage pay!! First uh oh/disadvantage. Then I started working. The first couple of days I had to walk, an hour, across town, cross a busy intersection to get there.
I liked the woman I first worked with though she complained alot and let me know that she definately did not like working there.. Then I met the guy I would be working with everyday. He seemed intelligent, but he too complained about everyone working there and everything about working there. I had to go to lunch in the small breakroom with him which was very quiet so I had the pleasure of listening to him slurp his noodles '"everyday'"!!!! And he would eat very fast then later he would be belching loudly!
The general manager is a lesbian and I didn't feel comfortable with her. Not just because of that but because of her personality. She would come in the backroom yelling, and talk pervertly to another girl who would laugh. I couldn't believe some of the things that were said by her and the guy that I had to work with. 2nd disadvantage. I felt very uncomfortable alot of the times I worked there.. I was hit on by another manager. He was nice but the last thing that I needed.
There were no boundaries, respect or organization of any kind at this place... Then the last thing that made me say "Enough" was they cut hours because "Corporate spend money they didn't have, = so the little people have to pay for their mistake while they still get their vacation, new car whatever!!!!!!! But they didn't cut everyones hours like they said, only certain people!!!!!! At a meeting they said our hours wouldn't go lower then 30. A week later I have only 28hrs, then another week later 25hr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3rd disadvantage I can't afford to pay child care with this.. Oh and too our schedules are all different. The guy and girl that I work with were also my ride to work,,, but since they change the schedule I would have to walk 4th disadvantage.,., walk across town for an hour for minimum wage to only work 4hrs.
I know I shouldn't be complaining and be thankful I had a job nowadays but it was ridiculous, uncomfortable, disrespectful, unorganized with no boundaries that just made my anxiety go through the roof...
The main reason I'm writing is that all through this my job counselor from VESID, which is an agency that works with people with disabilities. Well I told her what was going on and that I needed her to look for me another job and she said this:: Pamela.. the last time we spoke you were going to address your supervisor with the need to change your schedule and to see how you can get more hours. I have not heard back from you since.. and no.. i am not looking for another job for you because I did not know you are looking and can't even begin to update your resume without information on what your current job does.......... so you will need to call me?
