work woes (again)

ugh... i'm starting to get better at keeping up with this... unfortunately life gets crazy. for me it seems like it's crazy more than it's normal. :(

So in the beginning of July i went to the emergency room with chest pains. turned out i had gall stones and needed to get my gallbladder removed. i was then out of work for 3 weeks, should have been 2.. but for whatever reason they didn't put me back on the schedule for 3 weeks. so not only was it expensive for me to be out and get the surgery done... but that made it worse since i wasn't seeing any income for much longer than expected. i live paycheck to paycheck, so it's hard...

now i just got the schedule for this week and it looks like they tried cutting everyone's hours again! i have 3 days and the other two girls have 3 and 4... which includes 4 days in which that person on schedule will be working by themselves!!! when working the graveyard shift there you work 8 hours straight with no break, usually they leave you no food, and you have one person doing food and beverage audit, the other person doing front desk (rooms) audit, and both of you cover the front desk for any questions or late checkin's, and answering the phones and dispatching. This means on any given night you are doing at least 2 jobs with someone else there doing 2 jobs. If you are by yourself you are doing at least 4 jobs.

what upsets me most is that i'm by myself all 3 of the nights i am working next week... i am doing all that work and will see a lot less pay for it. no breaks. no food. no money. more work.


if things weren't so bad with the economy right now i'd have no problem telling them to shove it and walking out... but all places are doing this right now! they're all seeming to be cutting hours, cutting employees, cutting budgets.... it's disgusting! i KNOW for a fact that this hotel is not making any less money! i count it at the end of every night!!!! they simply want to cut budgets back and cut back the people so that they can see more sitting in their bosses pockets at the end of the month... that will ensure their jobs, but what about the people who actually RUN the operations of the hotel? if we all quit our jobs would we see a manager step in to run the show?? no... they wouldn't know how.

ugh... guess it's that time again to break out my old dusty resume and work on it... it's been exactly one year that i've been working at this hotel again. it's been one year since i had issues at my last job. i'm starting to wonder if i'm not cursed!!!!

p.s. - anyone out there conscider themselves great with resumes and want to look mine over for me?
