So I'm struggling at work because I can no longer physically manage 12 hour days. My department does not accommodate 8 hour shifts. As a result, in the last couple weeks I've applied for 2 different jobs within my company. Today I interviewed for a position under my current manager (who does NOT 'get' me AT ALL, I might add). I think the interview went well, but the shifts are 10 hours and I'd have to take call. I need to mention that last week when I went to her about that position she spent about 5 minutes telling me that I wasn't a good fit, "but I'd like you to interview anyways." I went along with it because I am determined to show this lady that she doesn't intimidate me (I think she sees right through my facade~ she terrifies me). I decided after the interview that I would let her know I applied for another position in the company (NOT under her). Her face lit up and she couldn't stop talking about how good I'd do in that position! She promised to recommend me to the manager of that department right away. Personally I think we will BOTH be relieved when I don't work for her anymore. To my fellow BYCers~ Please send a prayer my way!! I'd love this other position. It's 8 hours, 3 days a week. I could pick up an extra shift in my original department as my energy permits, and wouldn't have to use so much sick time! MAYBE I could even take a vacation in the future!
