- Wedding: May 2016
So this might turn into a long post. And there is some back story to all of this….
So i work for a major corporation that has many different departments, etc. Basically i got a new job back in october(2015), my old job knew i was getting married and were extremely forgiving for me asking time off to plan my wedding as well as having no issues giving me the approval for a three week vacation once my wedding happens (May 2016). Fast forward a few months and i end up finding a new job within the same corporation that i “thought” i was really wanting and it has turned into nothing but a bad headache and stress.
My new job is extremely stingy on following all the company rules and policies and isnt forgiving at all when it comes to anything. I should have seen this problem coming back in january when i got selected for jury duty and needed a week off, and they acted like it was the end of the damn world.
Im not to thrilled with my job right now on top of all this cause im getting screwed on schedule compared to mostly everyone all cause one of my fellow close coworkers is taking advantage of his change of availability (he had no car for two months, but now hes had one for the past month) and he basically refuses to change it back cause he gets every single good shift that there is. Theres no point in me complaining about this because management always gives off a pissed off vibe when you try and bring your work schedule up of any form……
Im extremely worried cause this is my main problem, My wedding occurs on May 15, and i leave for my honeymoon right after for two weeks, which in total is three weeks. I went ahead and have already paid for everything back when i had my old job (because they gave me the go ahead and approval), so everything is pretty much said and done. My company like most have a use it or lose policy when it comes to vacation and that occurs on your hire date….
take a guess when my hire date is???
i literally lose all my vacation, pto, etc. 5 days before my wedding. Im at a lose on what im going to do, i CANT see this job giving me a break and letting me have all that time off, considering how they have reacted towards everything else.
Going to HR is useless at my company, ive already tried that route. They basically said its my fault that im getting married after my hire date, and there is nothing i can do.
my fiance said that if the “job makes me this miserable then quit, and that we arent sacrificing our wedding and honeymoon for a sh*tty job you dont even like”
which he is kinda dead on about. Im just stressed on what i should do, should i try and talk(beg) to my bosses anyways even after the not so kind response from HR to try and get the time off, or should i not even hold my breath and just put in a two weeks notice right before my wedding.
