Hey all, I guess you can chalk this up as another one of those "I hate my job rants", I just really need to vent about how my job is going downhill quick and how it's gotten to the point where I can't even stand going there anymore. Particulary, how fed up I am after what happened today. Here's the scoop: I'm currently enrolled in college and work two jobs; one at the local cinema where I've worked for the past 3 or 4 years, and one at a small business run in my neighbor's house where we remanufacture toner and ink cartridges as well as do printer repairs, I've worked here for a little over a year. My theater job is great for a minimum wage job, and for the most part is filled with good management and some great employees with whom I've made some close friendships with over the last 3-4 years. My problem job is at the small business. Origninally I really liked it for the convenience of how close it was to home and the little stuff like flexible scheduling as well as the overall liberalness of the atmosphere, it used to be fun and we could joke around while still being very productive. I brought a good friend in with me and have also formed some good friendships with people in the rather small staff of 9 people. That was 6 months ago; fast-forward to now where they've installed cameras all over the house,I feel as though me and everyone else are always getting lectured about something no matter how good we do our jobs, and it feels as though the business is always on the verge of failing (and that point is seemingly made clear to us by the 2 people who run it). Not to mention that the two people who own it and run it have no previous management or business experience and do a horrible job at it; this thread would be to long to go into the various facets and problems w/ this business but let me say that there are many and it is no wonder to me that this company has been in business for close to 7 years and has not churned a profit yet. Anyways, over the past 6 months I've been a very consistent hard working employee, yet I constantly feel as though they are coming down on me for various issues, at one point I even got into a very verbal exchange with one of them that resulted in me losing my temper and just leaving for the day. I'm normally a very professional, courteous worker but that day I just lost my cool and after exchanging some retorts I had to leave before I got even angrier. On top of this, out all 3 of their most consistent workers I've been there the longest and am being less than the other two, a fact which does not make me happy since I work just as hard as them yet I can't seem to get a raise and make as much as them. Come to today, I've recently switched departments and now am doing their shipping and recieving instead of building inkjets. The last few days habe been great and I've gotten a lot of stuff done in my new position, things are looking up. Today one of my bosses was talking to me about the cameras they have focused outdoors on the street and the other houses(supposedly to see if UPS shows up). Apparently, at the latest neighborhood assosciation meeting someone complained about their cameras and how they were focused on the street where the kids play. I guess my boss was a little hurt that they'd insinuate that her and her husband would want to watch people's kids or that they thought they'd hurt them. A reasonable thought that I can agree with and would feel insulted if it happened to me, yet on the other hand as a homeowner who has lived here for years I'm not necessarily comfortable with them having cameras, especially when they are aimed directly at other people's homes as these are. Anyways, my friend and I were trying to explain to her how others may see it and why people were complaining ( I used a really good example of a story I'd heard about someone with those cameras who's signals had gotten crossed and picked up by someone else), the discussion was really civil and than all the sudden out of no where my boss went crazy and started yelling at us telling us to go home and clock out, at that point I got out and as she continued yelling at us told her goodbye and that "I had my own problems to deal with, I don't need this!". I came right home. I'm really, really, fed up with this situation and am really thinking of quitting there soon, it's gotten to the point where I don't even think I can respect the people as neighbors especially after today. I don't feel like I continue being put in these kind of scenarios and it really messes up my stomach from the anxiety when this stuff happens. I got a full plate already with another job and going to school full time, I don't need to put up with bad management to the extreme like this. I'm planning out how and when I'm going to quit right now . The neighborhood assosciation is getting ready to try and close them down I believe so I may have no choice eventually anyway. I apologize for the length of this thread but I really wanted to vent and get this event today as well my general growing dislike of my job off of my chest. Please chime in and give me your thoughts or advice.
