It’s a tiring thing.
A troublesome thing.
But you get money from it.
Thats why, I am currently working part time.
Oh, also, i failed one course in my last sem of poly so i retained. fml.
Thats why i have a lot of free time to work.
I work in a desert store. It’s okay. work hours are long tho.
Pay is decent, $7/hour for menial labour.
Had a talk with superior, about work schedule for exams, touched upon my work evaluation.
The boss is unsatisfied.
he says I am not good enough is certain aspects, mainly about my facial expressions and intonations while servicing customers.
But what can i do? My facial expression naturally regresses into a stone face when I’m tired, or just by it’s natural state, it’s not a happy looking face. I’m not handsome either, so both counts against me.
I feel like i could improve, but i wasn’t as bad as the evaluation made it out to be.
I did speak to customers with varied tone, not just a flat tone. my stone face was real tho.
Contemplating on quitting, gotta make a pros and cons list to figure shit out.
the boss also say due to certain circumstances, my pay is slightly higher then my part time colleagues, so he expects more from me.. dude, 50cents an hour more, is not bad, but that puts pressure on me, uneeded, unwanted. I’d rather have had the same pay as the rest and not have to work extra hard. Though if they reduced my pay, it’s an impetus to quit lol.
contradictory right? yes and no. I’m a lazy person, but i like money, so there, it logics perfectly.
I am definitely not the best worker, I admit it. But I can improve and I will improve, the only thing is if others will actually notice it and if it’s fast enough for the boss’s liking.
One thing i’d like to complain about is the boss bringing up some colleagues as reference to how well i should be doing, e.g. you don’t want to be lousier than (example) when she is newer than you right? Hello, she is newer than me by like 4 or so days only! And whats more, she has f&b experience already under her belt, and not an insignificant amount. I on the other hand, am a lazy fuck and have not had a proper permanent job (part time) ever, the longest I had worked was 1 month or so at a retail shop as temp retail assistant, and in that i didn’t need to be good since i was only there for a month and did the shitty things only ( basically easily replaceable). For my first proper job, i feel like I have already done a good job to my non-existent previous abilities.
Well, rant over, and i gotta do other shit. and it’s 2:46am damn.
edit: currently have worked about 1 month 3 weeks or so
