In the grand scheme of things, this isn't anything earth-shattering at all, but it is totally irritating. I am definitely blessed to have a husband who has a job. Annoyed as I am, I still understand that.
But, I've not had a good, at-peace feeling about this job since he started. I don't know precisely what my problem was/is, but I've never had comfort with this job. I have some clues as to that ill feeling now, after a month of work, though...
Before he hired on they sent out notices that they were changing pay periods from weekly to every 2 weeks. *Before* he hired on. At all these hiring pow-wows they had, calling and chatting since January, doing their song and dance game...and at his near 2 hours at the office being talked to, brought into the company, ego-stroked and so on...while ON THE JOB FOR THE LAST MONTH...no one, not even chat amongst the employees, said word-one about the pay periods changing with June. Not a word.
Add to that, he's a Superintendent with the 3rd highest pay grade of the division (this company has like 6 divisions in the US), and he's just a tool-guy (LOL...he don't mind that part so much...pay and title without the headache)...he was supposed to head out from Texas Wednesday and his jobsite Superintendent didn't tell him. The shop called and wanted to verify his hotel and got mad because he hadn't left yet.
Little things like that, total lack of communication between anyone there, this "ooopps...we forgot to tell you the pay period changed and there's no check this week" --
I just don't have any peace with this company. It isn't like I'm wishing unemployment or anything, I just don't get the idiot game playing everyone does these days. It's just childish. Why on earth not tell "the new guy" what your boss says he needs to know? Is it that amusing to watch what might happen?
Childish high school stuff. Ugh.
