Work...the ***UNOFFICIAL complain page***
I was just thinking that we should have an optional board saying what everyone does and furthermore the complaints they have currently about the job. No need to mention company names.
Whatcha guys got?
I could start off.....I am tired of working 3-4 hours every night when I get home AFTER my 8-5.
Sorry I need to vent a tad.

I guess I could try to bitch, but here goes...
I'm tired of my job that pays me relatively well, work barely 40hrs/wk, NEVER take work home, don't work weekends nor nights, get 5 weeks of vacation a year, and with my new schedule rolling out in feb, work 1/2 day fridays in april, may june and july....
I actually really like my job. I do agree with h2oskierrick though. I have 30 direct reports currently and around 45 from august to november and it does suck babysitting adults..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

Sandm - You must spend all year writing reviews and conducting 1-1 meetings ..If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

nah, review time comes once a year in may. can write most in 1-2 hrs and have all month to do. I manage shipping/receiving in a retail warehouse, so the reviews are not that hard to do. 1-1 meetings are done more with the 5 hourly supervisors I have. I only really get involved in discipline in meetings.
spend most of the time making sure we are running operationally, staffing needs are met and communication is happening with the storage and picking departments within the 4 walls, and ensuring morale is up.
it's a good job. pay could be better, but hasn't forced me to leave yet'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

I am very grateful that I am fortunate enough to be employed. I work at home so I have no commute and get time to do volunteer work and coach the kids' teams. Some of the little technology snafus can be annoying but I work a small group of very professional people who are good at what they do so they are easy to get along with. I really don't complain very much about work.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

My TPS reports are due every Thurs. It seems that my bosses want to change to format every month. They are big on sending Memos through email; sometimes I just don't read those memos.
To top it off, someone continues to steal my stapler (the one I bought) and the copy machine always shows "jammed" when it is not jammed.
Wait, I think that was a movie that I saw.
It is hard to complain when your job is teaching students how to fly aerobatics when the government is paying for the plane, the gas, and paycheck.1997 MasterCraft 205

I shouldnt really complain either. But it is frustrating working for a company so large, that it is hard to make a dent in philosophy unless you are Director level. Maybe in 3-4 years I can get there and start cracking some heads.
Until then....I'll keep reaping the benefits of being in sales. Luckily I sell a product/solution that is not going anywhere soon.
