There's lots of other things you can do with that pharmacy degree...we can talk if needed :)

Thanks, I appreciate that. If it ends up getting that bad, I will definitely hit you up.

I swear I am inches away from just throwing my hands up and walking away at work. ANOTHER full time worker... my Night Lead.... is quitting. He gave less than a week notice and will be out of here on the 27th. That in combination with the fact that I hired a complete piece of shit recently whom I need to fire (Literally was dropped off at work last night by his father and he walked away and went somewhere else)... I am sinking hard. I've got ads out on Craigslist and other job recruitment sites and am getting absolutely nothing.

My blood pressure can't take this place much longer.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

$12/hr. Which used to be $2 over minimum... BUT minimum will be $12 as of Jan 1st.  The company is now starting at $12.50... but the base wage for those already here probably wont go up for a month or so. The big issue comes down to the contract with the client. There is always some... backlash whenever the company raises rates. This is the lowest billed property in the company. They make very little money off of it. I know they basically lose money from me (My wage is still 25% lower than it should be for my position).


Edit: Even at the $12.50, it's still 2 dollars less than the going wage for the industry here, and this account is a bit more... involved than most Security gigs.

So we renewed our ad on Craigslist. It spells out very clearly what the job is. (Literally titled "FULL TIME / PART TIME SECURITY OFFICERS NEEDED" and then goes into detail, even mentioning needing to be a State Licensed security guard...).

First response LITERALLY said "Are you guys hiring securitys?"

I want to respond, but I will behave.

When they tell you that your health and your family always take priority and then make you feel like a deadbeat POS when you take a sick day or even an unpaid day to take care of your child.

A person was just hired in my department that has made False sexual assault accusations in the past. She was being fired from one of the other sites for incompetence and decided to make some shit up on the way out. It turned into a huge mess.

She was only hired at my place because she is friends with the manager. So they allow a lazy, incompetent person with a bad attitude to be hired all because of nepotism. Really not happy about this.

That kinda crap has been going on for decades.
Everything that CAN go wrong, WILL go wrong ...and if nothing has gone wrong...you obviously DON'T UNDERSTAND the situation.

We have a guy at work who literally belches at his desk every day - sometimes just a few times, sometimes 30-40 times a day.  It is usually a quieter one that is still audible, but occasionally he'll bust out one that comes off like he was trying to show off.  At what point would you mention this to anyone?  I usually just roll my eyes, but as an account manager, this guy sits close enough to me to where if I was on the phone with one of my customers and he belched, they'd probably hear it (since I use a headset for when I have to make calls). 

On a sidenote, how freaking disgusting and uncouth do you have to be to belch at your desk at work like you are at home in your recliner?

I had a similar situation several years ago with an employee that sat close and would loudly swear, complain and cuss out clients after hanging up the phone.  I kept a list of things she would say, verbatim, and sent it to HR after it was plenty long enough with the explanation that I have had people comment on phone calls that they could hear her voice in general and it was only a matter of time until they heard her saying something very bad.  A year later, the behavior had come back, so I had to contact HR again, this time with an audio recording of a full-blown tantrum and this time apparently her job was threatened if she didn't shape up.  HR didn't like the fact that I made an audio recording in the office, but with no eyes or ears in our branch office, what was I supposed to do?  They needed to hear an example of the behavior.

Just be ready for any backlash.  I had this girl's close friends, unit coworkers and even her boss giving me nasty looks and talking about me for a year or two afterwards because they deduced that I reported her to HR....not really understanding that about 10 other people in multiple offices and third parties also complained about her.  I was just an easy target and thankfully people in the office and company respect me enough to know that I wasn't making up a bunch of bullshit to create drama.

Sounds about right.

I understand all that. And I would go to my boss before HR, but I doubt it will ever even come to that. I will be surprised if this guy is still here in six months, so it's just a matter of waiting it out.
