Hi guys, I was wondering what scheduling is like on the units where you work. On my floor, I'm just about had it with our system, and people I've talked to from elsewhere wonder why it's like this in the first place. There's a spreadsheet with everyone's name on it, and it's a free for all to claim hours. There's been a lot of erasure lately... ie: people who want to work your shift, so they make it theirs, then kindly schedule you on a day YOU CANNOT WORK. Then when the schedule comes out, it's a great big unpleasant surprise. Management turns a deaf ear to it. Any time I ask a question or offer a suggestion about how things are done, I'm answered in such an exasperated tone that I just don't want to talk to them ever again. (Techs such as myself are treated like peons... unless they like you lots and lots and lots.)I get the feeling the person who does the "scheduling" just doesn't want to deal with the task of knowing everyone's availability. All it does it eliminate frustration for the "scheduler", but place all that frustration on the honest employees who just can't bring themselves to steal other people's hours.
