here we go again

December 6th, 2018 at 04:46 am

So for anyone that has read my posting you might know I started current TEMP placement in august and suppose to end in June.
Here is December and I am counting down the days. I realize it is my issue but I am just not embracing incompetence. I realize that we all make mistakes and can miss small details but lately the people who are SIMPLY not reading.
I attach and organize POs and paperwork for billing. A lady who has done this job for years (almost a decade), emails me asking "where the info was that accepted the updated price of service?"

I literally told her it is the line in the email sent by the CUSTOMER that is in BOLD font. Then she said "oh never mind , I did not read it" literally it is her job to read. Then we have those who do not scroll down, again long time people that just want me to spoon feed them the items they need.

I am making awesome progress with my finances since this place, in my opinion, grossly overpays based on the job, BUT I cannot stand incompetence and a complete lack of give a hoot.
Another co-worker stays the maximum OT and what is she doing … shopping online and playing on her phone.

I know it is everywhere but I am just fed up at the crap.
Now manager thinks we all need so much OT but I finish my 8 hours of work in 5 and am bored out of my mind cause I don't watch tv on my phone!!!!!!!!

    I think you are dealing with idiots. I'm sure you are not alone. I'm sorry this is stressing you.

    I kind of differ with you here.

    You were hired to do a job. As long as you do the job and are paid, what anyone else is doing is really not your concern. How the management decides to operate their business is not your concern either. Your objective should be to show up and do whatever is asked of you during the time you are there. In your shoes, I would arrive cheerful and ready to do the job. I would put my head down and do the best job I could, without worrying about what anyone else is doing.

    That kind of attitude will get you noticed and you will find it easier to get a permanent job you like more because of the positive reviews you will get. Detach your judgement of people and processes from your work, and you will be a lot happier as well.

    Thanks for the responses
    I understand what you are saying, Anotherreader.
    Your advice would be helpful if I was planning a career of some sort. I have DONE all that. I am just prepaying all debt and padding our retirement now.
    Right now I have turned down many, many perm spots at the places I have been temping at.
    As one of my previous managers said " I am a huge value because I get the job done and correctly. that place calls me every few months begging me to come back.

    I was sort of venting here on the blog.
    As we got a memo "requiring" 24+ hours( per week) of mandatory OT (Our state law here says you can only mandate 8.)
    Why so much ??? because we can't get the stuff done while watching HULU along with many other examples of just flaking off.
    TODAY, I was just asked by a co-worker today to slow down cause she needs MORE OT to pay bills this month.
