I think I may have found a way to enjoy our vacation a lot more. Working OverTime! *YAY*
If you can't already tell, I was being sarcasting in my excitement.
At work, we have plenty of opportunity to work overtime, and I could if I wanted to. Read that again. I could IF I wanted to.
I have worked OT before, and don't get me wrong, I love the extra money in the paycheck, but I quickly get burned out by working the extra time and dealing with some of the calls that come in.
Lately, we have been swamped by callers, most of them are newer members, and the queues have been high. Apparently the members are complaining that they are waiting too long for a representative.
So, starting on July 23, everyone who can be on the phones (ie: Me and everyone else who has phone skills) will be required to work a mandatory 4 hours of OT per week.
The equals out to 1 more full day on the phones and about $225 extra before taxes.
I was ticked...still am actually.
So, I thought about it and you know what? If they are going to make me work OT, I am going to milk it for all it's worth, which could be a lot. They have Uncapped OT...which means I can work as much as I like.
So I am going to. I am going to work (hopefully) an extra 3-4hours extra per day and 4 hours on my day off (excluding Saturday) equaling to approx 38 - 48 hours per pay period. Which means I could possibly make an extra $1060 - $1339 on top of my paycheck (essentially, a second paycheck for me).
You want to make me work, fine...I will work, and I will make money.
BUT, don't expect me to be all happy about it....until I'm on vacation :P
