I was right.. The team lead and I had a 'discussion' and seems I'm not to far off on my assumptions :-[

Just another day in paradise

Yesterday afternoon my boss says to me, "I am dragging this afternoon, I'm so tired. My sister came over last night and I didn't get to bed until midnight, so I'm running on like six hours of sleep." I was like, oh my god, you are such a trooper.

My boss has told us several times we won't get paid if we work past our scheduled hours, but that's hardly ever affected us (coating techs) until yesterday when he mentioned this yet again and I spoke up that this doesn't include us right? and he said it includes Everybody unless there's an emergency situation.. Yet I had to work Sunday over 6 hours ???
Him just saying that is illegal!
I worked over 6 minutes last night and I had best get paid for it or I'll make a phone call to the Department of Labor and let them pay a visit to investigate any unethical work practices :o

Welp.. I didn't get that job. That's #4 that I've been turned down for yet I'm given 'words of encouragement' that something may come down the line later this year or early next year..
They've already hired someone else off the street and they've already had their drug screening and paperwork processed!

AND I have to work Saturday! :angry:

To say I'm Majorly pissed off right now is an understatement!

So the wst shift guy (the one that's been here 22 years er so) has called out twice this week so far and now the manager is moving me to 1st shift (5am - 1:30pm) starting Monday..
This would seem like a good move but working with some of the people on 1st shift is more annoying than anything; as in a lot of coworkers with egos, not to mention managment and engineers getting in the way..
I'm committed to leaving here by the end of May-as soon as I confirm my vacation to Mexico in June, then this will not be of any further concern to me 8)

Yesterday my boss told me that when he first started working here (he was a teenager, he is definitely a company man) he got his first paycheck and couldn't believe how low it was, so he went to the head of HR and asked if they could stop taking out taxes.

So he was pretty much a dumbass from the get go.
