At my current job, I have been employed all together about 6 years. I used to work for the same boss same job from when I was young, and during last summer, I got a job with them again. I’ve always loved my boss and the job. But this time around I go shuffled to another location, with a different supervisor.
At first, things were great. They worked around my college classes, it was all good. But now, my semester is coming to a close for the summer. This month, I have extremely reduced shifts at work due to me having… way too many finals this month to study for.
So, I got guilted by my supervisor to take more shifts this month. Unfortunately, I’m not a strong minded person, so I flopped over and took a few extra shifts… I hope I can get through my studying still, though. I was supposed to work today, but I’ve got a study group going for a final on Monday. She texted and said “Well, stop complaining when you don’t have money then, since you never take shifts.” Now I feel bad, that I should have sucked it up, and went today. I worry, she controls the scheduling and when I work. I don’t want to piss her off, or I’ll get the crappy shifts and locations. So I tend to flop over.
BUT! Now, she was putting together next months schedule. I casually reminded her I’m done college this month, and I’d appreciate 4-5 days a week like I was told by my boss originally when I first got hired. She looked up at me and said, “Uh. I can promise you MAX 3. No more. We hired two new people, you know that.” But, funny, these are new girls. I told her I was off school, why wouldn’t she of only hired one or so and I’d cover the rest? She asked all the time when I was done college. I don’t understand.
I originally had a plan just to flop over until May, and then go speak with my boss. I’d like to sooner, ie this week, but she just had surgery, and I don’t want to rush in complaining the second she’s back at work. Do I go in the following week? Or just deal with it later?! Aaah!
Also, I don’t want to rush out and get another job if my boss will save my summer and give me more. A lot of places around here though, the summer seasonal positions are already filled by other college kids. I didn’t run out and get a job earlier because I was told I’d get almost full time, right.
My main issues are: 1) I was promised 4-5 days a week. 2) 3 shifts can’t pay my loans for school.
Any ideas on what I should do? Am I unreasonable? I understand times are tough, but I tend to think what was promised should be kept…
