Just Frustrated

May 1st, 2010 at 06:07 pm

I have a heck of a lot to do before I can even think about getting a new place. I'm trying to do things slowly so that I don't get frustrated. But I am. I'm incredibly frustrated. And it's only the beginning.

I'm having trouble getting hours at work. I've been getting 21-27 hours a week the past few months. According to my calculations, I need 27 hours a week to pay my bills. I've talked to a few of my managers and I was basically told that there are no hours to give out. So what the heck do I do? Do I just get a second job?

I had plans of talking to 2 different managers today about other positions. One wasn't there and the other was in a bad mood. You know what I need? I need a job where I know I can get my hours. When I first started working at this place, I was getting 32 hours a week. And that was guaranteed. I had a job where I worked 3-close 5 days a week. I got that job because no one else wanted to do it. Eventually, I got sick of it and I realized that I was starting to become miserable everytime I walked into work. I switched positions and I was happy again. Only thing is that my hours are not stable. I need stability! My plan is to try (yet again) to talk to my managers tomorrow about getting more hours. If I'm told that they have no positions for me, I'm going to get a second job. Hate to do it but I have to. Grrr!!!

    I'm sorry things are so frustrating right now. I love reading your entries and I hope things get better.

    My hours have continuously been cut as well... I also get frustrated, but try and keep in mind that the company is struggling, too. Therefore they cant always afford to give them out (even if they want to). Getting a second job is probably a good idea, even if it's just a serving job a few nights a week or something. I hope you figure it out and all goes well! Keep us posted!
