For example, is there 90 days of protection?
Does state law provide something?
I don't mind earning less money if working days. I know I've been working two weeks, but should I ask to switch jobs? If given the chance, should I do it as soon as possible? Should I wait a few more weeks? Should I talk to a day manager if I can get a job in days instead of talking to my overnight manager?
I have been working overnights there about two weeks, and each shift I'm told I'm not working well enough. I've talked to the manager and asked if I could possibly change to days if she thinks I'm not suited for overnights. she said I could possibly do something in days.I'm trying and learning new things each day. I worked faster this week, but I was given some new skill; I did better than what I had done last week in terms of time and making things look nice. I'm getting better, but my coworkers don't think I'm good enough. But it seems like working certain areas is difficult compared to a lot of other aisles. My co-workers said my aisle is the hardest, though. I somewhat feel like I'm being setup for failure and to be fired or laid off at a later time. In the mean time, I'm getting the idea that they are making me do the hard work. A previous manager told me before going into overnights one thing: Don't let them push you around.
Today, my co-worker said that the supervisors and managers think I've been acting rebellious and insubordinate about things. Supposedly, she said, that I'm out of line to ask why things are done the way they are. At no time, do I really remember saying the manager was wrong. I do remember asking why things weren't done one way versus another. And if that's insubordination, that's new to me. I think I've been acting considerate. I think there is a misunderstanding in communication or a misunderstanding of emotions.
Anyway, I do need a job, since I won't have a place to live or food to eat come January 1st, 2009. So it's either find a way to keep a job versus sleep in the homeless shelter. Or I could go down south to keep warm. I think if they're going lay me off, then I need to look for another job. I've known places around my area to lay off people after Christmas, even if they aren't working seasonal.
Should I ask to switch jobs? If given the chance, should I do it as soon as possible? Should I wait a few more weeks? Should I talk to a day manager if I can get a job in days instead of talking to my overnight manager?
I know the people I'm with don't quite like me. But I'm trying to be a good person and stick around until a few more guys are working in the area I am in. Because if I'm not there, then that would mean the most recent new guy would be rushing everything and feel screwed. I'm not going to do that to him. I had that happen to me too many times in life. So, that's why I'm sticking around. At the same time, I need a job. Also, I don't want the co-workers to feel like they are wasting time training me. My parents will be retired and unable to support me. I don't have any friends or family to help support me. And yeah, I am trying harder each time I come in there.
