A typical day at Altru consists of a severe lack of teamwork. I have been apart of a team since I was four years old until basically now. I am twenty-four. These ladies, which is the majority of the department, have NO idea what it even means to work as a team, and that makes it so much more difficult to work as a team and communicate as a team. The drama will always be in a workplace so I can overlook that, because that is simply called life. As far as the management goes, everyone notices the favoritism in the department. No one has the nerve to say anything because they think it will do no good. I beg to differ. When I believe strongly in something, I go directly to the person I have an issue with, and I handle it like an adult. This is also an issue in the department. I do get along with a few of my coworkers. I have also been looking for another job since I have realized how this place is ran. The hardest part of the job would be knowing that my degree that I studied and busted by butt for in college is being wasted for a job that requires a simple high school degree. This was failed to be brought to my attention. Also, dealing with coworkers that constantly underestimate me simply because I am "too happy" is absurd. They for some reason sadly confuse ADHD and "stupid" to be the same thing. To hear that I am "incapable" of learning a new position due to its past-pace nature is down-right downgrading because I know that I am capable. Then on my second day of training and I am already doing good enough to be on my own, seeing and hearing the negativity coming from these hateful people is just rude and it brings me down as hard as I try to not let it bother me. Case in point: I feel like I am back in high school, except I don't have my country guy friends to remind me to shake it off. The most enjoyable part of this job is proving people wrong.
It's not hard work...and proving people wrong
Management needs to act like what their title suggests
