Where I work, is once again under going what I have nick-named "The freak parade" when there's an opening, and the boss hires people.
We [3 people] come in, take care of the animals, clean, feed, and then clean up on the way out so that everything is back in it's place. The boss has 3 rooms of his house dedicated to these animals, which he takes care of before we arrive and after, and because it's his house everything must be done precisely. It takes about a week to train someone the basics. All of us work together to get the job done. If you get your stuff done sooner you go help the others. It's a joint effort, - we all arrive and leave at the same time, get to leave as soon as we're done, and still get paid for 3 hours.
9 out of 10 don't last a week. The 10th one usually doesn't last a month. The boss is a bit vague about the job in the hiring ad, so even the calls are a bit of a freak show.
The current job opening says the hours are from 10am to 1pm, and to call after 3pm.
Here's what we got:
One caller called at 9:30 PM a week after the ad ran, wanting to know if the job was still available. Boss said yes, are you working now? Guy says he is layed off. Boss asks if there is any chance of getting called back. Guy says no.
So bascially Guy sits on his hiney all day, week after week, finds an old ad, and calls at 9:30 PM?
A lady called on behalf of her deaf daughter. Boss asks how we can comminicate, and lady says we can text her.
Another lady called, works for school, so in the fall, she wants to be able to work after 1pm. She couldn't understand how that would be a problem.
Another lady called on behalf of her son. He wants to work now, and leave in the fall for school.
um, if he is too lazy to call . . . .
So finally, because the boss has other things going on, and really wants the weekends to be filled with stable, predictable, effiecient people, he offered us a deal:
If we work Fri, Sat, Sun, minimum, we will get one weeks vacation pay every 6 months, based on our avg pay duirng that time. We can take off or work but we will get that extra check.
I used to work Sun-Wed. but now I guess I will be doing Fri-Tues.
Will work for fabric!
