I got to work this morning to discover an email from Judy stating that 31 calls had not been dispatched, a few other things hadn't been done, and she wanted to know why not. (These were to be done friday night).

Yay for RB falling down on the job again.

I left at 7pm Friday... CH left at 8, and RB was supposed to stay until 9. After the spat we had right before I left, I guess I'm not too surprised that she decided not to do her work.

Evidently she's screwed up a lot of others... since two of my coworkers have sat down with her since she got here and discussed calls with her, and right now she's saying, 'Oh I didn't do that!'. *sigh*

The situation there is not getting any better with Judy not disciplining her and making us do it. I don't appreciate being held accountable for RB's actions either. How the hell should I know why the calls weren't dispatched? I wasn't even THERE for cat's sake!

Much as I hate to contemplate this, especially considering my financial situation... I think if RB isn't fired within the next month (or by some miracle of God, she starts behaving) I will start looking for a new job. I want something where I have a chance of progressing, and where I am not put in a position where someone else's screwups put me in a bad position.

Besides that, it'd be nice if I could trust management to get off their asses and take care of a problem employee.

The more I think about it, the less I am liking my situation here. No one in this company has gotten a raise for 2 years. I have been here 6 months and I've never receieved an employee review. Much as I want to find some longevity in a job... at the same time... it feels a bit hopeless staying here, since I'm pretty much stuck in a limbo.

I'm going to wait and see what happens, and perhaps keep an eye on job listings on the side. Anything I took would have to have the same pay or better, and that'll make pickings a bit more slim.

Besides that... I don't want to quit in a huff. Doing things while angry almost always leads to regrets...

I would suggest setting up a meeting with your boss before your shift starts. Lay out your concerns about what's going on, that the group as a whole is being punished for the act(s) of an individual, and that you don't have the authority to reprimand RB -- she does. The manager should be taking responsability, not you, and if you gently let Judy know that you'd like to see her step up to the plate maybe she will.

Or you can round up the other coworkers and ask to see Judy as a group, let her know that as a whole you're tired of RB's problems and want management to take some action.

Re: Bleah.
We've all approached her individually with our concerns. All she's said is that she's trying to give RB every chance she can.

We haven't approached her as a group, because.. well.. what would be the point? We have, all of us, let her know how we feel about the situation, and she still won't do anything.

I have pretty much decided that I'll stay here til I have all my old debts paid off. Then I'll look for something else. It would be extremely stupid of me to risk losing my job while I still have a lot of debts hanging over my head.

Re: Bleah.
I really need to get a degree in psychology. I really must learn why, to become a manager, one has to become inherently broken and just stop seeing reason.

Jesus wept.

Re: Bleah.
The kicker today was when I got an email from the woman in HR that hired me.

She's been laid off due to the company downsizing on personnel.
