 Carol's Journey

Temp status unchanged according to the rules
For first week after starting forty hour schedule
Plus two hours OT for half hour more four days
Definitely will help with unpaid bank holiday

Prior week I had asked about adding Wednesdays
Shocked when supervisor gave approval right away
In my email I explained my desire to learn balancing
For Puerto Rico bank after almost three months keying

Next day, mandatory company meeting was announced
Three time slots to cover all shifts, topic not disclosed
That Friday everyone required to attend no exceptions
It seemed so top secret my mind filled with questions

I was set up to go in the afternoon the second meeting
All eyes watched as people came out in the morning
Four of our temps in that group with concerned faces
Sworn to keep silent added to uneasiness in that place

The branch manager read from a one page document
Hard to fully grasp even after he explained the content
Basically, one computer system is undergoing evaluation
For possible outsource of client banks to foreign destination

Process began this week with several people on site
Learning how to use the system and once it is complete
Another meeting will be held with the results presented
Some job loss might occur as he has already cautioned

He assured us the company is expanding and growing
New system in March with more banks will be coming
He also said Image Point and Puerto Rico bank will stay
Both areas primarily use temps who fill a need each day

Lord, You understand benefit limits of my health insurance
Now with my highest prescription removed from assistance
I sense You led me to a discount online Canadian pharmacy
Guide me as I call Monday to verify price and availability
