Oh holy mother of mercy, today I finally received a bit of help in the office. For the first time in 3 months, and wouldn't you know it - it was a horribly slow day.
I was swamped like crazy on Monday and Tuesday but the last couple of days not a whole lot was sold and thus the workload died down. This was kind of a good thing as it allowed me to go over a few things with the new chick, but it was bad because showing someone something once and then saying "we'll just have to wait a few days and go over that concept again" is lame.
Either way, I'm happy to have someone in there with me currently. I got to go over a few things and we got to chat about the way the store works and the differences between this one and the store she came from.
Chatted with the Store Manager about putting a 3rd computer in the office since there will be three of us stuck working there and she said that probably won't happen as one of us is going to be spending a lot of time on the sales floor. She didn't say who as she said she still has to figure that stuff out. However, I'm being told that there will be a big Pow-Wow when all 3 of us are working to figure everything out from scheduling to who is doing what and to who gets to stick their dick in the glory hole.
I think I'm going to volunteer to be the store trainer in an attempt to continue to get on the good side of the management team and make my push towards the promotion that will be posted within the next month or so. I do know if I do not get the promotion I will be looking for a quick exit from the office as with the amount of work I have to do and have done this past 3 months I am horribly underpaid.
My hours this week are through the roof. Monday I stayed an extra 30 minutes because I was working on some issues. Tuesday I stayed an extra hour because they wanted me in the Manager's meeting. Today was another 30-40 minutes because of issues that came up at the last minute. It's funny how dealing with others laziness tends to extend my time during the week. As it stands now I'm looking at a bloody short Friday. Normally Friday is my short day with 7 work hours instead of 8. I am already over by 2+ hours and my workday has dropped to 5 hours now putting me at an exit time of 11 am for an almost extended weekend.
Today I was told that my mini vacation was approved and put into the computer so the week of the 9th is going to consist of me not going to work until Thursday and loving every minute. Thinking about shutting my phone off so no one can call me bitching about anything.
I cannot wait for June to be over.
