Last Thursday I posted about the new girl at work being out sick for the entire week and how I was looking forward to her bring back because the other girl that is on my shift is on vacation. Well, she is out sick. This week has been long and the entire shift is non-stop work. As many of you know, I have some slow times during my day where I am able to sit back, relax and make a posting to the blog, or talk to some of you on AIM. Well, the past few days its been crazy.
Reasons I want to quit:
1) Lack of Help - Last week when "New Girl" called out, it was fine, there was another girl there to help me out and the show ran fine. I work on two shows a day. There is the main morning show and a show that goes on the air at 4:30am EST. The 4:30 show duties can be done by two people, but it is hecktic. On Friday, "New Girl" was still out sick and the Other Girl was on Vacation leaving me the only person trained to do the job of three people at once. Unfair right? I was given a girl who has no training on my show to "help out" and all she did was sit at her desk and say "if you need help, ask me, I'm watching Oprah"
2) On Friday of last week my HR boss, who is in charge of the schedule, knew that New Girl was going to be out of work the next week. It was not until Tuesday of this week that she try to correct the schedule and get regular coverage on our shift.
3) I have been passed over a bunch of times the past few months for positions that are a step above where I am right now. The last four were all filled by young women with blonde hair and above average breast size who, when our shifts overlap, constantly ask me how to do their job. It's frustrating when you have producers you work with tell you that you are smart on a daily basis and then when you try to move up and out of the "overnight" shift you get passed over for someone who works dayside.
Reasons why I like my job:
1) I get paid extremely well
2) I have access to some of the greatest anchors in television history. One of which just gave me an AMAZING recommendation at another network
3) I have been able to learn a lot of new skills that will possibly get me hired at another network.
I know I sound bitter, I am just frustrated. I requested a meeting with my HR Manager to talk about my frustrations and have a plan for the meeting. After almost 2 years here at the network as a PA, I want to move on and ahead. I was talking with a Senior Producer today and his advice is to lay out what I have done, the stories I have worked on, and the praise I have got from other producers during the meeting and ask how I can move forward and up.
My buddy at a RIVAL network has my resume and word is, there may be an opening for me there. He's a really good guy, known him since my internship, plus he is really cute. Who knows, all I know is by weeks end I will have worked about 80 hours this week.
