One Last Try

May 5th, 2010 at 09:29 am

Sooo I was content with how things were going. I was getting my hours, I had an idea of how to make extra money on ebay. All was well. Until last night when the schedule was posted at my job. I had changed my availability so that I would be off on Wednesdays and Saturdays so that I could plan things on these days. I had a bad feeling that this would also mean less hours for me. HOWEVER, I usually get 2 days off a week and I just figured my manager would make it so that Wednesdays and Saturdays would be my days off and I'd still work the other 5 days. Wrong. Got my schedule. Not only did I have Wednesday and Saturday off, but I also had Tuesday and Thursday off. 15 hours. Ergh.

So I have a new plan. This is my last time trying. I'm going to talk to either the assistant store manager or the store manager today. I'm going to ask for longer shifts over 3 or 4 days rather than 5. I'm not asking for more hours. I'm just asking for the amount of hours I usually get (usually around 25) over a period of 3 days rather than 5. We'll see what they say. If they don't give me a good answer, I'm going to have to find another job. I've been at this job for close to 3 years. It would really stink if I had to leave. Frown

I hung out with my future roommate yesterday. We babysat my coworker's kids. It was easy but I probably would not do it on a regular basis. 9 hours of "work" with no pay is sort of sucky. Anyway, we went over her expenses and it was right around $1250. Way too high for my liking. I want to be able to know that I can depend on her to give me the rent money on time. We put in a couple of applications last night at some restaurants because we like the idea of getting tips. Right now our goal is to get her a full time job in Tampa working in a medical office. My older sister told me about the position and asked if I wanted to do it but it's too far for my liking. Then, if she gets this job, she can go to school a couple of days a week and her medical insurance bill goes away (don't know why... that's what she said though). And then she can work at a parttime job on the weekends. I'm hoping things work out. I told her I wouldn't move out until I felt I was in a good position and she was in a good position as well.

I'm hoping today goes well at work. Crossing my fingers.

    $1250 doesn't sound bad to me, are you putting it in comparison to her wages? just because someone's expenses are higher than yours doesn't mean that they are 'high' - there are a lot of variables involved.

    How does her health insurance bill go away if she gets that job? The only thing I can think of that would lead to that would be if the employer covers the employees' health premiums 100%, which is very rare in the States. I have had that happen a couple of times, but not very often.
