Annoying work issue

November 22nd, 2017 at 09:33 am

I love my new job.

Of course, no job is perfect. There is always something that could be better.

We have a monthly staff meeting. They are mandatory for us to attend, however, we don't get paid to be there. We used to have in-person meetings but about a year ago switched to Skype/phone meetings to try and boost attendance. That was more convenient and I didn't have to miss work to attend, though I actually think in-person meetings are more productive.

For December, they are having a live meeting. It's on a night when I would normally be working, so I have to miss a 4-hour shift to attend. I hate that I lose $400 of income when I'm required to be there. That just seems wrong.

The response is that attending the meetings is part of our incentive bonus. Great, except the maximum incentive we can earn is $400/year which doesn't offset potentially losing $4,800/year in income if we go back to monthly live meetings.

Although I do prefer live meetings, I hope we stick with the Skype meetings most months so that I don't lose income to attend.
