 Carol's Journey

Temp Job Decline

Christmas week two days left early
First thought to be related to holiday
This week only Monday not affected
Six hours total lost as week progressed

Tuesday AM caught up in PR balancing
Ask other supervisor about help in keying
Over 100 batches she said no rudely in fact
Take our breaks to be ready for Image Point

Tuesday afternoon new bank I learned
Glad to help them out with skills gained
Later thanks given but told to leave for day
I questioned with reasons not her authority

She had told my supervisor about situation
Ready to go called in her office for discussion
She graciously explained and clarified issues
Grateful I was not let go I apologized to her too

During that meeting said our hours will vary daily
If work is slow in PR we will need to leave early
Our scheduled hours at this point will not change
Results in personal plans unknown at every stage

Even Image Point has decreased in work volume
Monday is a bank holiday so it may improve some
With two full time employees in our department gone
One for two days other until Feb. 3rd for surgery done

Last week in PR bank was mid-month processing
Usually an opportunity for extra hours forthcoming
Prior volunteers were asked to stay late after holidays
Not anymore as work has declined in a really big way

God has provided at least one possible opportunity
For Saturday volunteers asked to sign up in February
I put down for Feb. 8th and 15th for my schedule open
Decided each week so I will have to wait and see then

Lord thank You for all resources and hours You supply
Teach me patience even when I do not understand why
Give me clear guidance in looking for another position
Show me the way daily throughout this whole situation
