So how's your job coming along?

So I got promoted today but in an odd way.

There's been a firing air in the company lately with lots of folks leaving and whatnot. The boss views the nursing department as fairly incompetent.
So to keep myself from being fired, I've been taking on bits of duties. When I figure out how to do them, I intentionally don't teach anyone else how to do them so that I can become too essential to fire.

Today, the bosses boss called me into her office. Now I was shit terrified because I feel like I've been fucking up at the job lately. The boss though started asking me about if I feel like I have leadership qualities. I was real nervous but changed my tune quick when I realized this was a promotion interview, as well as when the boss pretty much said that either I take this job or people get fired. Now here's where I tried to start flexing a bit on what I know about the job while telling her about things that are going wrong in the place. My boss tried to avoid letting her boss know about anything wrong going on and keep her in the dark. So I figured that essentially started out as an informant on things going wrong would create that "working relationship" later on to be a manager.

Then later on, the bosses boss came to our department and started asking us all these questions, made us look like idiots. I took charge and started explaining things better than my boss does. Now that I have some level of power, I need to rapidly change a lot of things to alleviate my bosses concerns within the next month. Pretty much, either I perform and start heavily reforming the department or I get fired.

It's just odd because me taking on additional duties and being "the only person who knows how they work" is a big part of why I was chosen for the promotion apparently. Now that I've gained a level of power, I need to figure out how to use it asap. My former boss who's now my underling is a situation I need to figure out asap.
The part that makes me feel like an asshole is me figuring out how to do additional duties that my boss didn't know how to do and not teaching anyone else how to do them. Then when the boss boss came down to the department, my boss looked like an idiot compared to me which was all according to keikakku. Feels a bit dirty but now I'm head of nursing at the clinic.

Reading bits and pieces of the 49 laws of power and machiavelli has been surprisingly applicable to the work place tbh.

It's alright. Today is supposed to be my day off but I have already been made aware of possibly being called in because one of my co-workers is not feeling well. So that kinda sucks. I'm actually in contact with them though and I will know fairly soon if they are gonna bail their shift. I'm a little on edge about that but at the same time I've kind of accepted it.

Although technically, even if I do get called in, I'm not obligated to go, because I'm not on the schedule, so I can say I can't go in and really the worst that will happen is my manager might be irritated with me. But I don't think I will actually get in trouble. So I'm not entirely sure how I want to deal with that.

One one hand I am absolutely dreading the idea of having to work on a day I'm supposed to have off (especially since I worked yesterday and I'm definitely working tomorrow). On the other hand, I guess it would be more money? idk

Well I went from being paid to not do my job to being paid to actually do my job. A few months ago I got my WSI (Water Safety Instructor) so I could teach swim lessons, but they never let me teach and just had me sit in the office doing nothing and getting paid for it. Starting today they finally decided to put me in the water so I can actually teach little brats how to not drown.

I mean, for higher swim levels of swim lessons that's a thing I could do. But if I'm teaching kids who actually could drown if I'm not right there, that's not a very good idea. Besides, not like I have a problem with going in the water and teaching. If I didn't want to do it, I wouldn't have gotten my WSI in the first place.

Okay, so let me break down how the real world works, because what they teach you in school is wrong.

Hard work doesn't pay off, it just makes people expect more out of you. You see, when you work hard, the regular level people expect out of you rises. You normalize the fact that you are effective so that is what people are going to expect from you. On the flip side, if you are lazy and incompetent, people expect next to nothing out of you, so when you do next to nothing, people are basically fine with that. When you become known as a diligent, hard worker that can produce results, that is what people begin to expect from you. If you don't continue to produce on the level people expect, they think you are slacking and not doing a good job, even if you're now doing the same level of work as the slacker whom everyone deems incompetent, but you are now the only one getting shit on because people expect more from you than they do of them.

Also, once you prove yourself as competent and productive, you will be the first option on the table when something needs to be done, essentially increasing your workload by a buttload because they would rather have you do it than give it to someone capable but less competent.

The moral of the story is that hard work just makes you have to work harder than the lazy people who do next to nothing, and the amount of work you will have shoveled on you is exponentially larger than the bonuses you will get for being better than others.

You can be good at your job while coming off as completely incompetent so that people still have low expectations. It's how basically the entirety of how I do everything.

Also, if you become too good at your job you become essential. This sounds like a good thing until you realize you've painted yourself into a corner of which there is no escape without being a complete douchebag.

For example, I cannot be fired from my job. Period. Literally it is impossible. This sounds great until the realization sets in that you are now so essential to the company that you also are no longer allowed to quit either.

That is what I did and I don't recommend it unless you have a job you actually enjoy, which I do not. However if I were to quit, the company would literally shut down and I would be responsible for putting 35 people out of work.

So yeah.

>>41958402

I mean you're right but that's not really a big truth bomb or anything, it makes sense.

I feel like I'm one of those people who works hard and tries their best at their job but never really excels in any particular way so even though I put in genuine effort, nobody really expects me to work miracles or whatever. Like I'm definitely not the first choice to be called on when serious shit needs to get done.

And I'm kind of okay with that, for now at least.

My problem is that I'm lazy so I put a lot of effort into doing as little effort as possible.

To give you an example, the paperwork I had to do used to have a lot of manual math involved and a lot of writing in numbers by hand on a sheet of paper. I got tired of doing this almost instantly so I spent two days designing an excel sheet that required me to enter three simple numbers that would auto-calculate and fill the whole sheet for me, turning a 45 minute job into a 3 minute job.

The downside of doing this is that instead of that project taking me almost an hour to complete, it now takes me less than 5 minutes, freeing up an hour of more work I could potentially do during the day.

So in the process of trying to be lazy I inadvertently gave myself 40 minutes of extra work per day.

I mean my job, when I'm not teaching, is to look over the online stuff we at our pool on top of answering questions at the front desk and phone. I think my boss thinks that is a lot more work than it actually is, when the reality is that majority of my hours spent working I am just on my phone goofing off. When I do have to do work though it is a lot and all at once so no one else wants to do it. So I basically get paid for like 30hr weeks when I do about maybe 2 hours of work a month. Though I guess that's changing a bit since now I'll be teaching for like 2 hours each week.

My job doesn't work like most others. What I have to do on any given day is dictated more by reality than a set of instructions I have to follow. A lot of my friends think my job is like working a cashier job at Walmart but it doesn't work that way. In those types of jobs, you aren't really doing anything specifically important. Like if you don't show up they can just have someone else do it, or just open one less cashier lane that day.

In my job I don't get the luxury of vacations or sick days, because of I don't do my job, shit goes south super fast.

If our ATM machine breaks, I have to get it fixed, or we are going to lose like 100 bucks per shift until it gets fixed. If the refrigeration breaks, I have to fix it immediately or product goes bad. If our accounts are low, checks start bouncing and we either don't get deliveries, or employees paychecks don't go though. I can't not do it or 'just do it tomorrow'.

Is there no way to train staff on any of that? These seem like the sort of things you have an assistant manager or "random guy who's good with his hands" for.

I started learning how to do things that my co-workers didn't know how to do so I wouldn't get fired. Now I'm low level management. I guess I'll have to learn how to be a manager. I can already tell that I'm going to have to learn how to delegate tasks and train employees so that I'm not doing like 90% of the work.
I just realized that my workload and responsibility has doubled since I got promoted. The job is way more stressful, I can't spend my whole shift on the internet or take 20 minute naps anymore. I can already feel that while the extra money will be nice, I'm already way more stressed and my hours at work are going to go up.

That sounds like a lot jobs, but not much like mine I suppose. I guess I am in charge when an emergency happens here and am responsible to resolve it as fast as possible, but that's less financial stuff and more lives at stake.

Though in general my job isn't easily replaceable since it's a lot of training and not many people seek it out at my age (above 18).

I don't see what that has to do with anything. I can do two things at once. Often when I'm posting here I am also working. That is why I do it from my phone, because I'm not just at a desk where I can fuck around.

I'm rarely ever sitting here actually spending time JUST posting here or on Discord. Often times I'm making a post while simultaneously doing something else. When I'm repairing the AC unit for example, I'll work on something then take a minute to post something then check in a few minutes later to see what has been said. I don't just sit here doing nothing.

Going to the bank is a part of my job I have to do nearly every day, but it is hardly the majority of it, nor is it the most labor intensive.

Yesterday I was watching YouTube videos while gathering parts to repair a broken trailer Axel, because I needed the flashlight on my phone, so I just had it running while I was working.

Just because I'm active on here doesn't mean I'm not working. Usually when I'm active on here it's because working pisses me off and I like to talk to people while I work to take my mind off what I'm doing.

That's why you rarely ever see me active when I'm off work.

I mean, I don't get what your point is here. I'm assuming that you think that since it's not something that requires my full, undivided attention that it's not actually "work", however to be quite frank there are is next to nothing that actually requires my full, undivided attention, so I'm not sure what you think "work" actually is.

Any job you have or have had I could probably do while still posting on here if I were allowed to do so.

Okay, tell me what hard work is then, because apparently you know it better than I.

Warehouse work? Done it. Not difficult. Annoying and boring. Would have ample time to post.

Receptionist. Mostly a lot of sitting around doing nothing.

Security. Took naps between patrols or brought a flash drive with a MAME emulator to use on the work computer between patrols.

Cashier work. Not difficult. Would have had plenty of time to be on my phone if allowed to.

Repair work. Done it, still had time to post.

Enlighten me, exactly what you think 'hard work' is? I am very eager to hear.

When I said there is next to nothing that requires my full undivided attention, I meant it would be true in basically any job you could think to put me in.

You can make posts between moving things. Warehouse work does not require both hands to be full 100% of the time.

The only strain of warehouse work is physical, and honestly the only thing about it that sucks is that it makes me angry and bored because physical labor is not enjoyable for me in any capacity.

You're right about security, but the rest, holy shit I don't even know where to begin. You haven't had a single hard job in your life if you think this is what that means.

Or maybe what you think is hard is something I see as mediocre and irritating.

I HAVE done 'hard work', but it wasn't hard for me, just irritating or boring, which is what made it difficult. The biggest thing that makes work hard for me is if it's mind-numbing and unengaging.

I would love to see Toy work as a waitress at a busy restaurant and try to post on her phone, and watch her get fired the second she attempts to post on ponychan.

Yeah man, you're just that amazingly gifted as a worker, where simple peasant jobs are mere child's play to you. You do real work, like going to the bank and fixing the AC once a day.

Hardwork is less the actual job title you work, but the workload and supervision over it given. Like there are easy jobs working as a waiter and hard jobs working as one.

I work for a fucking restaurant. Are you retarded?

I started as a regular employee washing dishes at fucking 2am in an in an uninsulated room in February. Have YOU ever worked at a restaurant? Have you ever BEEN to a restaurant? I see waiters and waitresses on their phones during their downtime all the time.

>during down time

If you work for like, a local business maybe. I don't know what down time you're even talking about if it's a large busy restaurant though, your perspective is so ridiculously skewed through the one job you've ever had it's absurd.

Dude, those restaurants actually give their employees 15 minute uninterrupted breaks. The one I work for basically means 'You have to take your break when there are no customers', which means if you're taking a lunch break and a customer shows up, you leave your sandwich or whatever in the back room, serve the customer and then go back to finish when your job is done.

Tell me, have you ever been in a job where you have to be on-call 24/7? Where at 4 AM on Saturday night on your day off you can get called down to fix something that is broken like a toaster?

Alright you win, I don't even know what to reply anymore, you think fixing toasters is hard work, merry christmas.

I had tons of down time when I worked in fast food. I'd also have nights where you're busy as fuck the entire time and it's a crazy ass workload.
Restaurant work is all "hurry up and wait". You bust your ass specifically so that you can fuck around for a bit with down time.
Managers who don't understand the worker need for downtime since restaurant work can get very stressful, though those are places where corporate doesn't like having employees stay for over 6 months usually.
>>41958464
When I worked franchise, that was how it worked.
Though the 15 minute breaks are far less than what you get in other restaurants, partly because you're screwed out of them a lot and also because you're not allowed to even sit down outside of those breaks. Of course, your lunch break is usually your two 15 minute breaks put together so you choose to either eat or have to do mindless chores like scrubbing a back table for the fourth time so you look like you're working when the manager comes around.

Places with defined breaks have consistently been fucking horrible ime tbh. I would choose to have my meal interrupted than a "15 minute break" every single time.

Though with my experiences, this was georgia. So the management culture and labor laws are different than a lot of places. Folks from other parts of the country usually describe managers in the south as acting like they're the employees deity.

Apparently you don't even know what hard work is. Do you know how to fix a toaster? Do you know how to wire it up so it doesn't blow half the fuse box in the back? Because this isn't a two slice toaster. It's an industrial, belt fed toaster with six glass encased heating elements that are wired in a specific way, and if you wire it the wrong way you're either replacing the outlet you plugged it into, the plug itself or the entire toaster if you actually fuck it up.

Have you ever actually repaired anything in your life?

Have you ever actually even HAD a job? Because the way you're talking you act like having a job is like this huge undertaking that requires everything of a person. Most of the jobs you're trying to pawn off on me are not even hard.

Exactly. I worked at Radio Shack and it was like that. You had to be doing something if you weren't on break, even if it was something pointless and mindless like arranging a shelf or dusting shit. It was horrible. But it doesn't mean it was 'hard'. The work itself was simple. It was just irritating that you had to keep doing mindless bullshit to fill an arbitrary quota.

What I'm getting at is that I can post on my phone while working because like I said, I can basically do whatever the fuck I want because I can't get fired. If I had had that ability at any other job, I would be posting just as much.

Just because I'm not ALLOWED to doesn't mean I couldn't.

I feel like I could be doing a lot better and sometimes feel like really incompetent, but there's still a bunch that really only I am responsible for and which I can adequately do, which is I guess fine enough.

It just sucks that a bunch of my tasks take so much time that if two things need to get done at the same time, someone's going to get mad that it wasn't done fast enough. Had enough times where people escalated stuff to my manager asking why I hadn't done something yet, and it's always like...Ugh, I was just about to fix your stuff but I was busy with like three other things so just keep your shirt on.

I really want to be given more server/admin responsibilities but I really just can't as it is. Hope things slow down enough to get to it eventually.
