I've got an interview for an IT job this week... thinking that the schedule that I wrote last week will be my last... didn't help that once again I had to schedule my self six days a week, working until midnight and coming back at 4am the next morning, and doing 11 days in a row. Tired of only having enough hours for minimum coverage and nothing more, tired of being ignored by all the execs until I have to answer to them when they ask why I didn't get something done or why I can't send them help ( the fact that I have 80 fewer hours than this time last year isn't an acceptable answer either) Apparently I am supposed to meet higher standards, more often, be more global, drive better guest service, promote sales, and manage a "fast, fun, and friendly" team; only problem with all that is if you are trying to pour more responsibility on me and wanting to pull me out of my department when my department is being held up by a thread... Although I am pushing a 25% profit margin, green guest service and freshness scores, record sales (10-15% over last year), receipt to sales right were they want it, order accuracy perfect, order action index of 100%, and a food safety score of 97 for the year; I still never hear that I am doing anything right. IMO the stats speak for them selves and I know that I am good at what I do and I am not delusional about it... I am just tired of stressing my self out and being unappreciated.
I was going to put off quitting until I can get a replacement for myself, but, one of our TLs said she thought the same thing 15 years ago, that she had an opportunity that she really wanted to take and she didn't leave cuz she was worried about target and says that she really regrets not taking the opportunity when it presented itself. She told me to take it and never look back if its what I want. So I am taking her advice going for it. Plus she reminded me that last year over 15 TLs quit many of them having been there for 10 or more years.
I am ready to move on to a job that is less stressful, less physically, demanding, more professional, and pays about $3 more an hour than I currently make... not to mention that the people that I know that have worked there for a couple years have said that they averaged 1-2$/hr raise per year and that they really enjoy their job!
