I HATE MY JOB!!!!!

WARNING!!!! THIS IS A POINTLESS RANT POST!


The company I have worked for since 2004 went to a seniority system about 2 years ago to determin what days&shifts you would work.

Well the entire 2 years I have been stuck at the bottom getting stuck with the chit shifts!!! week ends, grave yards, split days off, etc!

Recently due to some of the higher seniority guys retiring, transfering, health problems, etc. being eliminated from the scheduling pool I have finaly worked my way up to position #3 in seniority! and they decided to do and experimental schedule where instead of picking a pre set schedule you could pick what days&shifts you wanted to work and then as the seniority level went down thos guys had less good shifts to pick from.

NOW TO THE GOOD PART!!!!!
I picked Tues-Friday day shift. (I havet seen the light of day in 1.5 years)
The scheduling manager saw the schedule that I picked and told me that it was unfair for me to pick that schedule and that the guys under me in seniority would be getting shafted!!

WTF!!! for the last 2 years no body abovde me has given 3 f*cks 2 chits and one d@mn about what left over cr@p I was stuck with!!!

AND NOW HES TRYING TO PULL RANK AND GET ME BUMPED TO WORKING SPLIT SHIFTS ON THE WEEK ENDS!!!!!!!!!

I am so sick of this cr@P!!!! seriously how is it fair that I have spent 2 years working the left overs completly throwing my personal life out the window and having to strugle to keep my relationship with my "wife to be" alive in the 30 minutes a day we see each other! not to mention waking up and realizing that my baby boy is 8 months old and I havent gotten to see much of any of his life!!!! then to be told I cant work a straight day schedule because some one thats been with the company for 3-6 months might have to work split days, week ends or jumping shifts!!!

IVE PAID MY FRICKEN DUES! I WANT SO D@MN GRATIFICATION FOR IT!!!


$ I dont even want to get started about the guys that have been with the company less time that my self and are making more $ an hour than I am.






Sorry for the rant guys. its just nice to vent at least this way I feel like maybe some ones listening and maybe cares.

I feel your pain, I'm on call 24/7, 12 days on 2 days off with a 1 hour response time, and expected to be on site 7-3 five days a week, regardless of call ins, gets old....

Looking at another job with slightly more pay and company F-150 and GAS card, trade off is I will be gone overnight 2-3 days per week.

Seriously if I get slammed with week ends I think im going to find a difrent job. Ive worked nights for a year and a half now (because no one wants nights) and the only advantage to the night shift is that it has saturday and sunday off. basicly the only time I get to spend with my family. If I have to worrk week ends I will literaly NEVER see them.

my bigest problem is im kinda living at my income level. even tho im not getting paid what I should I cant find any thing in this areh that will pay me what im making and I dont want to relocate.

I guess what really bugs me is Im kind of stuck all I can do is let them screw me over time and time again because I have no other options.

my job---> <--- Me
