Thinking this is a friggin scam

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I am friggin PI$$ED OFF today.

I got transfered to another office at work a few weeks ago. I was told it was at most only an extra 5minute drive. WRONG. It's about twice as far.

Anyhow, out here, everyone who gets hired gets at least one hour of OT to go towards travel. It takes everyone almost an hour each way, but generally everyone gets an extra hour.

Today I talked to the boss about this. He said no. I agreed to this, and that's all there is. I told them when I accepted the job, it was with a 20min drive, not a 55min drive.

Their opinion - too bad.

I have a lot to consider now.

Do I look for a new job?
In all honesty, I like my job here. I don't mind the overtime shifts either. But come on. Heck, some guys out here get paid from the minute they leave thier house 75minutes away, until they get back.

I'm just so frustrated right now.

In the meantime, I'm not going to knock myself out anymore. Not for this crap. They have even said already, I am doing more work than the girl I am replacing. And she had the extra hour available to her.

Plus in all reality, I'm here longer! Not by much, but I'm here working at my desk 15minutes earlier EVERY DAY! I can tell you, that's going to end RIGHT NOW!

What a friggin scam.

    If you like the job, perhaps you can move closer?

    I'd go to HR, and do a little undercover work to see whether or not you are the only one. I hope you get it resolved in a way that makes you feel better.

  At least you HAVE A JOB! I'd probably be a little bit up set too, but the reality is, there are a LOT of folks out there that would just be happy to have a job to drive too. Hang in there. emoticon

    That sounds like something to discuss with the HR people at your company. That's just not right.

    look a bit deeper ....get your info and then if what you suspect is right then there is a state labor board, I don't know where you live but file a complaint....they will help you ...try not to get angry, just state the facts and why you are feeling your not being treated fairly....

good luck

    If people are classed the same (hourly) but being treated differently, your state or even the federal labor relations board can take some action. What an awful situation!

  Wow! Is there anyone above your boss?

If so, I would let them know as soon as possible. I would think they would hate to disgruntle a valuable employee or worse yet, lose you. I would let them know that you agreed to the new position based upon inaccurate information; the travel time. Since it is longer than they said, ask them if they could they compensate you. At the very least, they could give you expense money for the extra gas you will be needing or money for the extra miles. If you are definitely doing more than the previous employee, I would also mention this. Just be sure to check your job description before mentioning this, to be sure that what you are doing is something extra.

Keep in mind, if you go above your bosses head, it may not sit well with him and cause further problems, especially around review time.......who knows, it may be a risk worth taking. He may realize, he can not bully you in the future, because you will go above him.......
