confusing and unnecessarily stressful work norms
Operator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 7, 2018
I was contracted into an on-call position--the terms of compensation included in this contract were completely ignored for the first six pay periods I was employed. In the meantime, my work schedule was irregularly updated, although I was never needed for an authentically "drop-of-the-hat" situation, shifts that managers had known days or even weeks in advance needed to be covered wouldn't appear on my schedule sometimes until after they had begun. The fabulous benefits, pay rate, and conditions of employment should have made this job a sure thing, but I found management severely lacking--I'm still not sure who I'm responsible to or who I can direct questions to, so many of the frustrations I'm listing here have still not been addressed.
