I’m so sad. After 175+ days of my server being up with no downtime whatsoever, I had to perform a graceful reboot. Httpd was down, and server load went nuts. I’m quite sad. But that’s okay, I’m in the process of backing up all files on that server, to prepare for a server move. Woohoo!
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy working for Caribou Coffee but I’m just becoming so bored with the job. I feel like every day is the same. It’s like Groundhog Day only worse–customers that are picky about the low-fat, sugar-free syrup lattes or their soy milk cappuccino that doesn’t get the right amount of froth because soy milk doesn’t froth right…
Part of me wishes that Best Buy had worked out, but it didn’t, so now I’m playing the waiting game. I’ve got a full month until I can re-apply. I won’t be working at the ones within 10 miles of me, because my store had people from the other stores, and I’d rather not endure the drama being circulated.
The only reason why I’m complaining about work is that again, I’m not getting the hours that I had discussed with my new store manager. She was an MIT at my other store, and knew that I wanted at maximum of 40 hours a week, with the minimum being 35-38 hours. I’ve yet to see that, though the other full-timer has gotten 39.50 one week and 40 another. The most I’ve seen has been 32.50 since she asked me. I’m also very upset/annoyed about my payrate versus other shift supervisors. I worked for Caribou back in 04/05, and was a Shift Supervisor then. I also have my Illinois Food Sanitation License, which is a huge plus in this retail area. Yet I found out that someone that’s two years younger with 1/4 of the experience/qualifications that I have is making the same.
So not only will I discuss the hours, I am going to ask for a raise to compensate for my experience and qualifications that I was denied during my rehire. If not, then I am definitely going to look into another job, and leave this one. Obviously I won’t leave this job until I have one under my belt for a few months, but I just need something that pays better and will give me the hours I want.
