I don't love my manager. Yet, I'm very loyal and rarely say no to her requests. She rarely says no to my requests either. Over the last 15 years she's done quite a lot for me. I pretty much always get the schedule I want. She's maxed me out paywise. She's given me all my requests for time off, which shift I want to work. Over and over she's been there for me.
I can nit pick over things I don't like such as sometimes she's inconsistent in how she treats us. Often she'll talk to us about personal stuff in front of other folks.
She has a rotten job trying to satisfy a sometimes selfish and whining staff who constantly bombard her with their unhappiness and demands (what do you mean I can't make up my own hours and come in when I please? Now that my orientation is over, I need to tell you I can't work any weekends or Fridays, and I need 2 weeks off starting tomorrow. So I called out a 7:00 20 times the last six months, whats your problem? This nurse doesn't like me. on and on and on.)
Then she gets it from above about having to cut staff, cut supply use.
She also has to listen to family complaints.
She has a rotten job. I'm glad she's doing it and sticking with it, because I couldn't do it.
