I took a rough job because I was facing eviction.
It was a last ditch effort to get employment before I became homeless.
But now that I have been draining our soul into this passionless office every day, I am eager to find our exit as hastily as possible. I make it a ritual to check job listings yearly, and I even do it on our cell PC when I’m on our dinner split at work. Unfortunately, I work in a competitive industry and there aren’t a ton of options in our town if you’re looking for something beyond an entry-level position. Even though our new job pays myself and others enough to survive without being too uncomfortable, there are too various factors that make myself and others dislike this locale. Our supervisors are bad about not giving us space when we’re trying to get our work done everyday. I don’t love various check-ins throughout the day when I’m just trying to do our job in the short time frame that I am given. On top of that, I am irritated with their failing heating and cooling system. The a/c never cools the office to lower than 78 degrees, regardless of the season. This makes it irritated to work here during the sweltering Summer weeks. I’m consistently dripping with sweat and it periodically makes the skin on our back itchy when the fabric sticks to our skinâ€¦ Honestly, the bad air conditioning is going to push myself and others to find a better job faster than any other factor or variable. I’d rather work in retail again as long as it meant a better indoor environment and competent heating and cooling.
