I was hired for………………

07 Jan

I really don’t get it. I assumed every grown adult knew that even though you were hired for a certain job at some point you would be doing more of or something different during your time there.

As I’ve said before I have an easy job. Some days I don’t feel like doing my job. Some days I bust my ass and do things that are not in my job requirements. No matter how I feel when I come to work or when I call in I know what my job is and what they expect. That being said I seriously don’t understand some of the people I work with.

Needle Point has been talking about looking for a different job because “I wasn’t hired to do all this. Somedays I’m doing your job. Today I’m doing Grey’s job. I’m not getting paid enough to be doing all this.” Shit none of us This is still the easiest job there is. Yes his job is harder and he does more and I get that, but raises to happen as long as you work hard and the bosses see it.

Mr and Mrs Smile have been here for a hundred years. Mr Smile was talking about leaving because he is annoyed with people he works with for not doing their job and nothing happening to them. Mrs Smile told him to chill a couple more years and retirement is there. So thank god they are both staying, but for him to bring this up is the scary fact that longterm people are annoyed also.

Grey called in once again and even though I love him to death there is a point in which you have to realize this is a job. I totally understand being sick I really do. I have been totally miserable and had to come in. If you see that you have spent more days calling in then actually being at work 1. There might be the fear of losing your job 2. Maybe you should look for something that isn’t going to stress you out so much your sick all the time. Grey is liked by everyone except for the fact he is gone so much.

We have a group of people where I work who bring stuff up and make it look pretty in the store and I’m pretty sure not a single one of them ACTUALLY talks to the other. Fanny Pack complains people aren’t doing this. Mrs Best complains she is the only one that does this.

Jock and Clueless have to two of the most unemployee (that’s a Giggles word I have many) managers I have ever met. Some of the people don’t even know their names. The only time I actually see Jock is when people go on vacation and he actually has to come upstairs. Clueless at least goes to each store a couple times a week. Jock acts like he is god walking on water when he comes upstairs. Dude until I see you actually physically do something in the store there is no high horse you need to ride. If clueless would actually listen sometimes he would realize more of what’s going on with things.

Galby is the one who ACTUALLY runs things and gets things done. Oh do people bitch. “I can’t believe the people he hires” “He hires in bulk, not quality” “Why is he making us do this and that. We never cared before” “I don’t see why we have to ask that it’s not actually our job” “Why does this person have more hours” I really truly wonder if ANY of these people understand what being a boss and/or manager is like. I was one. I had to deal with all the lazy, bitchy and grumpy people. I had to deal with the I can’t work this this and this, but I need forty hours blah blah blah. The fact that he hasn’t actually blown up on someone totally amazes me. He is doing his job and his bosses job and sometimes his coworkers job, but never does he say “OMG I wasn’t hired for this” Now I will admit there are times he is grumpy and demanding. On those days I do my job and go home because he is the boss and pissing off the boss is not my highest goals.

I think all the No Call/No show teenagers are all gone which is amazing. They were draining the life out of this place. Forever people like Old Grace Kelly were talking about leaving if things didn’t get better. Now Forever people have been her so long I’m pretty sure they watched the first planes take off and most of them are so set in their ways the Digital people confuse them, but still having been here so long always complaining when things get bad and not actually changing things or being willing to change helps no one and also ruins and drains the life out of this place also.

Now I am not a saint. There are days I don’t do my job. There are days I do things I’m not supposed to. I have my faults just like everyone else, but I also understand this is a job. This job keeps a roof over my daughter’s head and food in her belly. So yes I may have been hired for one thing, but am also willing to do another.
