Work (quite boring to read)

April 22nd, 2006 at 04:02 pm

I'm working all weekend, which I don't mind because it's my contract. Anyway I went into work today and I noticed that my manager had put up a new overtime sheet for May, well the first week. I only put my name down for one shift because of studying, coursework etc. I'm so relieved that there is overtime, now I don't need to worry as much.

I've worked at my job, in a supermarket, for nearly four years now and I feel like a change. There's loads of reasons why I want to leave: the important one being my degree. Why should I work there when I can get paid more somewhere else? (once I have more experience) It's the same thing over and over again, every time I'm there. I've spoken to other people and they all say that every job is like that, no matter if you like it or not. I suppose the good thing about it is that I don't take my job home with me, why would I? I might have just gotten a pay rise but they still don't pay me enough to worry about sales.

Speaking of sales, the store is having a special offer for two days in my department. Any 10" pizza for a 1. It's going to be so busy - it's the end of the month and it's a bank holiday a couple of days later. I checked the rota - there isn't anybody extra in for those two days. Typical.

I probably shouldn't moan about my job this much - actually I think this is the first entry where I have. I was telling customers today about special offers that were on and some people were pleased to hear about them. I also told them about the other offers which would save them money e.g. vegetarian meal deal. It always surprises me that people don't know about it. The way I see it I might as well help the customer save some money.

I'm going to take advantage of the offer for those two days and buy pizzas to freeze. I really don't eat them that much but I might as well make the most of the offer. Anything to save money really.
