one step forward... two back

July 25th, 2018 at 05:24 am

So as an update I recently decided to pay as much as possible to car made some good progress as shown on sidebar. I also opened a new account that is paying a promo rate of 6% on savings and 4% on checking so I am going to move some from regular account over to new one to make the interest. ( my normal bank has no close branches here so I wanted an option if I need to deposit cash or checks).
This did help with the dissatisfaction with new job until I sat for 5 hours AGAIN yesterday. It is exhausting and frustrating to be so bored and pretend to work and look busy. Yes I asked sent 2 emails to supervisor for work even went over to her desk. just told she will send me a project. I want out and no progress on car or saving money can fix that. I am sure if I quit temp agency likes to punish ppl so they wont consider placing me until this contract would have been over... if I stay this company wants this to turn into a fulltime thing prolonging this is helping NO one I am miserable/ they are wasting time training me and temp agency needs to find them someone who can sit doing nothing and be ok with that.

    I think if I were in your situation, I'd take some personal administrative things to do. And not feel guilty since you asked your supervisor for work. That may not be a long-term solution but it could keep you stable and positive now. At the end of each day, you would have accomplishments - and personal ones, which are the best.

    I'm having a tough time relating because I have more work than time in my position. I would relish the slow time.

    Jenn, for many years in my work life I worked for companies that kept you BUSY if there was a slowdown in your dept. there was always a side project to help with or even lending you out to help with projects in other departments or even asked if you wanted to go home early for the day etc.
    I have done some personal correspondence but I would rather just have a day off then sit and do nothing. It is not just me either I look around office as we are in open space not cubicles etc and many are twiddling their thumbs, have long chats on Facebook or snacking etc.

    I'm surprised that they don't keep you busy. Maybe if you can find extra stuff to do not only will it make the day go faster, but look good to the boss.
