Hi all! This is a little bit of an update for my previous thread: So i finally went to the facility to get things started once again. Like I have said, i asked for a leave for at least 2... Read More
Nov 8, '09 by leslie :-DQuote from the_alchemistit sounds like you're kicking yourself for bringing it up?I only makes me think why my attendance problem has only come to their attention when I told them about it. I havent been keeping track of my absences, but shouldn't they have found out about it themselves and gave me a warning beforehand? Should I regret that I even mentioned it to them? That's my only point.
you shouldn't be.
whether it was you or anyone else that brought it up/complained, your absences would have definitely caught up with you.
so to answer your question, a resounding NO...do not regret mentioning anything.
i strongly encourage you to focus on the issues at hand, versus trying to rationalize why/what/how this happened.
their concerns are real and valid.
it's time to move forward and not look back.
ftr, when i read the title of your thread today, i swear i read, "back to Work with a Whining".
Nov 12, '09 by the_alchemistThanks for all your replies, i really appreciate it. I didn't mind if some of the responses sounded a bit harsh, I needed that to keep myself in check one more time. this is the real world and I know I can't get things my way. Tomorrow will be my first day at work, and surely I will keep in mind all your advice. I'll do my very best not to miss (or i'll lose my job!) a day i'm scheduled to work not only because I don't want a bad reputation, but more importantly, I want to train myself to be more dependable and more of a mature professional. Once, again, thank you.... wish me luck!
Nov 12, '09 by caliotter3Good luck on your return. If you do not have a set schedule, like it sounds from your last post, make certain to get a copy of the schedule so that you have no question about which days you are expected to be there. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with this, even for those who have a set schedule. Again, good luck.
Nov 12, '09 by SirapplesNo offense, but If I was a manager I wouldnt hire you. Seems our society is breeding entitled people that think that because they are having a bad day or because they live far away from a job, they can come and go without fear of losing that job.
Sounds like you are getting it though. When you were hired you have a responsability to work as scheduled, on time, and with minimal absenses. You owe it to your coworkers to be on time and as scheduled because when you dont, your coworkers now are overloaded with your patients, and the previous shift may now be mandated to cover your patients because you were out "worried to death".
Gluck and I hope that your work ethic continues to grow.
