    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    Yesterday I was called into the office at work by the new manager and the hospitality manager. Both who haven't been there for basically a little over a month. I had called the employee hotline because I felt like I wasn't being moved around to different stations enough. I felt and still feel that I get put up in the front at the register a lot. The manager basically gave me a list of what things I what I went over with the previous manager before I joined Sheetz. I feel I can do them. She says I'm slow in the kitchen, even on fryer. Are you kidding me? You don't see me on fryer because you leave like an hour after I get there. Plus, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays are the only times I can work. She complained about that. She didn't bother to say anything about me staying over when my supervisors needed me to on days when there are only four of us. Or stocking or things like that. It took everything to keep myself from crying. So after I finished the meeting I went to the break room and cried for a few minutes. I'm not going to stir shit again. I'm just going to keep quiet and do my job, because I need the money.

    I'm sorry, Anubisa, that you are feeling this way. Please don't just suck it up just because you need the money, though. I am not gonna sit here and pretend I know what's best for you, but I'm pretty sure keeping quiet will just lead you to become bitter. I say this because that's exactly where I am now with one of my jobs because I kept quiet too long for the money. It's NOT worth it. I hope things start to look up for you.

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    I like my coworkers and working with them, it's just that I wonder if some of my supervisors even see my potential. I have to stay because I have a new car and now a new cell phone. I also go back to school in August. So I'm not letting anyone get me down. But I'm not stirring anything anymore. It might cost me my job and I can't have that. Thanks for your input everyone.

    I've been to the place you are in, and only thanks to a unexpected problem that led to missed work did someone get fired, I kept my job, and got to stay on and prove myself. After I learned from a couple managers of the BS they were hiding to stay in your job.

    My advice, look for a job of equall pay some where and apply, tell them your qualifications, list old and current jobs, but do not bad mouth or whine or anything resembling those on your application or in an interview.

    Many employers will ask either on an interview invitation call, or the real good one right on the app, if they can contact your former/current employers, and if no/?something we should know before? check box and give brief explanation. This is often accompanied by a privacy disclaimer where they will not disclose your reasons to your employer, or even your name to a current employer when checking.

    They will have a paragragh or twon on the back of the application explaining your privacy, and state that by signing your application you agree to tell the truth and they agree not to harm your current job status by asking question.

    I had the HR director at a Job I applie4d for and was hired for tell me that I should of checked that box, because they were strict but fair, and understand that the hardest and most dedicated workers are often pushed out by bad managers who would rather not be replaced by hard worker under them, so they force them out.


    She said that if they hadn't had so many applications, my lack of details in the "why I left/want to leave" section might have lead to a lack of interview. Or Worse them calling my job, asking indiscrete questions, and me getting fired.

    There are ranking of best employers, look in to. People want smart people who speak up about things in their employ. They want to help. They know there are easy fix's to problems that can keep everyone happy and better yet help everyone to make more money in a happier setting.

    I think I'm gonna have to reset a Win 10 system. It's moving slower than it should be and I'm entirely too lazy to play diagnostic when one of the features for diag work isn't returning useful information. Blegh, I've got too much crap in too many different locations on this machine. Planning this out is going to irritate me.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    You can do something maybe it's an option of a reset, it reinstalls windows, but will keep your files and settings. If that doesn't work, you may have to do a "fresh start."
