Isn't it awesome when work require you to go above and beyond and expect you or have no life? Yet they won't pay or reward you for your efforts? I laughed a few days ago when a guy I worked with who I didn't like worked his a*** off for his boss had very little sleep so much overtime and received nothing in return. I told him it would happen but he didn't believe me.
I knew very quickly how the world of employment worked, unless you were in the "it" crowd you didn't have a chance oh and putting in more than you should and sacrificing your personal life to accommodate them making money.
Currently I'm looking for part time work so I can finish Uni and all I was able to find before this was casual work. It was funny when I spoke to them that they want you available 24/7 for about 10-15 hours a week, Seriously????? You expect me to sit by the phone waiting for a call because if we don't answer they will not give you as much shifts next time. What if I have something on? I'm not waiting for a phone call which might happen once a fortnight! I have a life!
Lastly the bosses have no idea how it all works! And it's a shame to as some you have worked with previously and know what goes on yet when they are in charge they expect the impossible. It's the one thing that annoys me about people, once some get power it goes to their head and everyone starts hating their job. I don't think people need to be arseholes and as employees we have a responsibility to work hard and do the right thing but make it worth our while help us enjoy it, motivate us, lead by example. Don't just dump things on us go for a 2 hour lunch come back and tell us we are behind and not working hard enough!
I call the seagull managers, they s*** everywhere and leave!
