Being Employed Sucks ALSO!!! by Employed - August 11th, 2010 11:13:33 PM
Listen, I am happy to have a job; Don't get me wrong... But employers are expecting to much from employees now. They are reporting higher efficiency from employees now. Making it sound like we (the working class) were just lazy before, until, they started laying people off and our jobs were threatened. What is really happening is they are expecting all training to be done on the employees time (and it is mandatory). Get trained in these five things or you aren't beneficial to the company; your responsible for keeping your skills up to date. -No... you hired me based on skills I have at the time, if you expect me to change my skills (update them), you should pay me to "change my skills". Expecting people to do work on their own time. Including paperwork, errands, deliveries, lunch meetings, dinner meetings and {insert yours here}... Don't do it and you are not a team player and there are lots of other people out there looking for work... A person quits, gets fired, or layed-off and they distribute the work load. Like we have enough time at work to absorb another persons responsibilities. Thats just a way to make the bottom line look good. So you start half-assing things because you don't have time to do everything the right way. You loose respect for your employer and you no longer have a sense of pride in your work. So when you get mad at someone for poor service somewhere (and you will). STOP- It most likely isn't their fault. They are probably overworked and under paid. Their not lazy, they are stressed; possibly to point to where they just can't care anymore.

Your right on target with the part about 'not being a team player' if you don't go along with it.

I've seen too much crap like this too. No one likes to work obviously, but it is so stupid that employers think that they should be able to work people like they're dogs and not pay them more based on skills or work ethic. I got yelled at once at work because I made a script to automate part of my job, while that sounds like it might be shady - it was just reports that were already computer generated that just needed to be in a different format. The owner of the company even TOLD me that it would be a good idea to do that and that I should. So I did it and get chewed out by him because I didn't MANUALLY spend 2 hours typing up the report, instead I spent 3 seconds opening and executing a script that put it out perfectly.

After all of that, I get told that they no longer need developers, they only need techs, so I take a pay cut to be a tech so that I am still employed, they restarted my benefits and didn't even give them back to me. After ALL OF THAT, they ask me to write some scripts on a lower pay rate in a different position with no benefits. What do you do in that position? Suck it up and just do what they ask, otherwise you'll get to where I am, Unemployed.
