- Wedding: September 2016
Just a bit of a vent, I guess some good advice would be much appreciated too!!!
Backstory, I started this job awhile ago,[Real Estate Receptionist] I really like it because I get to be on my own quite a lot of the time, and the hours WERE good. mon to fri 9-5, Sat 9-4, they have recently changed the hours on Thurs n Fri to 6, which is okay too.
So boss tells me I will have every Saturday off in December, as it has NOT been busy whatsoever, and I get very excited because we are in the process of moving!
Then he tells me, okay Amerie you can have this Saturday off [Nov 29] but have a blast and use it wisely because you will be coming in every Saturday of December now.
I was a bit sad cuz we have alot we have to do and one day off I will not be much help! 🙁
This morning he tells me okay Amerie, since you will be working all Saturdays, we are going to change your hours come January too.
I thought ohhh boy here it comes ill be working 7 days a week lol
Then he’s like, You will be starting at 10am Monday to Friday now, and We will keep you til around 7,8,9pm. Then I will come in from 7pm til Midnight
Im thinking what THE fuccck??!?!!? Why would you come in until midnight, this is a real estate company, and if people need advice at that hour they will go online and search it!
He’s thinking people will drive by and see that were open and come in, ask questions and they will want us to list their house. [???!!!!!???]
He’s turned down all my ideas of getting one of those big signs that say [ refer a friend, have them list with us and get a 150 gift certificate to The Keg or something] Or donating part of his commission [ which is HIGH comm btw] to a charity or Childrens Hospital.
So now if im working that til during the week and weekend, when the bloody heck will I have time to cook dinner?! Clean?! Do laundry?! Work out!?
Im okay with working late one night or two but if I start dinner by 8 it will be my bedtime before its finished!!!!!!! 🙁
Just makes me sad that I will have no time for me, no time with my SO and I 🙁
Its a good job, I like it, [i used to work in hospitality and theres NO WAY i can stay up past 10pm, let alone work til 3am again ]
not saying its something I would love to do for the rest of my life, but my SO will be working alot and he and I BOTH would like it if I had PT hours or didnt have to work every weekend so we could get stuff done together around the house.
So I guess what should I do? Start looking for a job again if January arrives and I dont like the i have no time for anything factor?
Or start looking now?
Ahhhh sorry this is long, just disheartening and im emotional as AF is right around the corner 🙁
Thanks bees x
