I guess I've kind of done this to myself because I've always bent over backwards for this place and bust my butt when I'm there while everyone else watches...
Oh, I can soooo relate. Isn't that the worst?:angryfire
I killed myself for 2 years at my last job - I was known as the girl that took every overtime shift there was available. I don't have kids and it just killed me to hear of my co-workers with families at home having to stay an extra 8 hours because of mandatory overtime. I was always the one that switched shifts with co-workers, too, so they could spend more time with their families. Nurses would just marvel at me and always ask me, "Jessica, you're staying over again tonight? Seriously, how do you do it?"
When it came time for me to get into nursing school
, I was hung out to dry.
Fortunately, I'd been working there long enough to get a sense of the way things worked around there, so I wasn't even that surprised. This job had a 100% tuition reimbursement program and I had to leave it because my manager wouldn't make even the slightest effort to work around my schedule.
When I read about your manager's goofy schedule deal, the first thought that popped into my mind was that he's a guy. Please - I SO
don't mean this offensively. What I mean is, he's a guy that's probably never had to worry about his
kids Dr.s appts, picking them up from school, etc. Honestly, because I
don't have kids, it's probably something that wouldn't automatically occur to me, either. In fact, I never realized how hard it is for parents until I actually sat down and talked to them (like I did with the girls I used to stay over for all the time.) Not saying this excuses how he's yanking you around at all - just pointing out a possible explanation.
