30 Days of Thanks...Day 27

Day 27: I am thankful for the snapshots that are being shown to me.

Although I did come forward with the information I mentioned in my Day 24 post, the type of response which followed was one which caused a bit of disappointment.  However, it wasn't surprising to either myself or my other co-worker.  

The handling of this matter just shows me how out of touch management is with their entire operations.  Their priorities aren't in sync, and my co-worker and I are weary of the madness.

I think of the situation that happened with this company and SOS.  They didn't have concrete proof of what they accused him of, but because a select few in management didn't like him, they let him go.  

There were others where they had proof of wrong doings, yet those people still have their jobs.  

It makes you wonder have things gotten so bad that a company would really rather hold on to mediocre employees than to invest the time to get quality people. It seems, more often than not, the answer to that question is yes.  

Although I am trying to stay above the fray, seeing all of this madness go on with nothing being done about it to my satisfaction, is really weighing on me.  It doesn't surprise me that the morale is low there among those who are working hard because the people around who do wrong are still there.  In some cases, they are the ones getting the majority of the hours.  You have leaders who don’t know how to talk to their crews and who aren't doing the majority of the work, yet they are the ones who are getting the praise and the credit.

Sure this type of thing may happen at a lot of places but it is excessive here. 

I definitely have to make moves.  This isn't worth my travel.  This isn't worth my time, and it definitely isn't worth the money.  Not all that I've had to go through, especially in the past four months.

Financially, I’m not in a position to not work another job as of yet, but I can’t see myself staying at this place another year. 

In the 2nd job, I am aiming for closer, like less than 20 minutes drive.  20 minutes drive isn't bad but for the pay I’m getting it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense.  I’d prefer if it were from home so I wouldn't have to invest the gas.  I’m aiming for higher pay.

If I can (although I haven’t heard back yet), I want to get a full time job which is paying more money as well as benefits.  That way, I won’t have to keep working two jobs.

The sooner I can get away from the 2nd gig the better.  

It’s damn near suicide to try and keep afloat when this place reeks of unnecessary bull….
