I have worked for this company for going on 9 years. For the majority of those years, I have commanded respect from every ETL crew we have had by showcasing my knowledge, and determination to do things well. There isn't a job in the building that I can't do. Now saying all that, you would think I would be a goto guy, scheduled my full 40 hrs a week right? Nope. In the last year my hours have been cut in HALF!!! I'm getting 20 whole hrs a week, and get treated with little respect. The ETLs treat me as if I am just another team member. I have been the Entertainment Sp.(yes I still call the position that) for 6 years. I am the person that the Electronics team looks to for direction and advice. Not the TL, who is too busy covering LOD since he is a SR.TL(hired on as that in 2012). I am at my wits end with this hours thing. I have gone to everyone about making sure I am scheduled, and no one does anything about. They don't even schedule me the days I am supposed to be there to complete certain processes(like Street Date, Return Scans). I am at the point where I need another job to make ends meet. They just don't seem to understand that they have cost me half my income, but we continue waste hours on mids on days that we don't need them, and schedule people that just flat out suck as a team member. Rant over.
