- Wedding: January 2010
Hey bees… this is not technically wedding related, but I need to vent a little. When I moved here over a year ago I was given a temp job working for this software company. Log story short, the ended up firing the office manager whom I was temporarily replacing, and then firing their customer support specialist. They offered me a full-time job as Support Specialist, but wrote all the office management duties into my job description. A little frustrating and a little demeaning, considering my qualifications, but whatever. I could deal.
Then the economy went sour and they took the Finance Director down to 30 hours a week and appointed me to take over several of her duties. So for the past 8 months I have pretty much been doing the jobs of 2 and a half people. Not only that, but everything I am doing is a priority:
– customer support questions/issues must be dealt with no later than an hour from the time it is reported.
– Finance stuff must be dealt with ASAP because we are a small, struggling company.
– Office management basically means I am answering the phone whenever it rings and doing a hundred other last-minute projects for anyone who is my superior which is, apparently, everyone.
I work over 50 hours a week. I work my @$$ off for this job, and the pay is not outstanding. And lately the finance director will find any reason to get me into trouble. I don’t think it’s personal… it’s just that I am doing too many things– it’s too much for one person to handle. But I am supposed to, and do it all with a smile on my face.
I DREAD coming in to work. I dread e-mails I receive from my superiors. This place is a toxic, passive-aggressive, dysfunctional nightmare and I am stuck in it.
Mr.Rain is looking for a job and the hope is that he will have one in 4 months when we get married and I can quit to find something else. But until he has a job, it would financial suicide to quit my job.
I am so, so very unhappy.
