More hours and overtime!
So I punched in my number today to start work, the HR TL asked me in her office as I walked by, turned around, came in said oh you said my name? “yeah”. So she started saying “We would just like to know everyone’s hours availability for the upcoming holidays.” Asked about Thanksgiving, black Friday after Thanksgiving, day before Christmas, Christmas whole week, Christmas Eve. We all get Christmas day off of course, all businesses everywhere are closed mostly. Target and Walmart are closed anyway. I said yeah I’m available at all times, anytime, I don’t have a big family, it all works, no configurations needed, I’m available all of those days, no problem. She than asked if I would even accept overtime during the holiday months if and when needed for extra help, I said yes to that also. So apparently now over time is still not acceptable as no one ever gets over 40 hours on the work hours sheets of course we all know, but apparently during this holiday season overtime can be done! OMG, so I’m gonna be exhausted and hussled and doing a lot of work, but the thing that keeps me working even though the job sucks and I hate talking to random people is thinking about money. First off, I get paid holiday pay (time and a half) pay and I get more hours than I ever have before. I’ll be faking the generosity even more this holiday season as I get paid big bucks and time a half pay and overtime pay also! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
