Work is so stressful & Boss Lady just keeps adding more and more work to do. She doesn't understand just how much my coworker & I have to do (we work independently on separate days) Both my coworker & I are struggling to finish our duties every single day. I think that speaks for itself. We need either an extra 1/2 - 1 hour or take away some of the work or hire another person to do that work. I'm working between 37-40 hours a week so it doesn't seem logical for her to give me more hours since then I'd need to be paid over time. My co-worker works part time since she's a student she's limited to how many days she can work.
There are a few things being changed as of today (It's my day off so my coworker is the one starting all the changes with the Boss Lady) I am hopeful that these changes will cut down on time a little bit at least.
I am also just so exhausted from all the long days at work. Constantly having to bend/ hunch over sweeping, mopping, picking up puppies & other heavy supplies has left my upper back, like my shoulder blades, in crippling pain. I feel like a stone in the morning. Not to mention I only have a few hours each day to myself & I feel like I can never get anything done. It's my day off & the house is a mess so I'm going to have to clean instead of studying for the GED. I am just so fed up with having to worry about studying but never actually getting to it because I'm so exhausted, or I have to do chores, or just plain & simple that I don't have time.
Kennel technician was the ideal job for me but I had pictured it in a veterinary setting. I'v volunteered at veterinary hospitals & kennel tech-ing for them is much different than kennel tech-ing for a breeder. Also, I feel Boss Lady is just very disorganize & there is just a general lack of communication with her & amongst some of my coworkers. Even when I'm like " Hey tell me when you're done doing that so I can do my job." I'm left waiting on a coworker that has finished their task but they are then waiting on me to finish but they never fucking told me they were done so time is being lost! And yesterday I found some of my puppies that were taken from me last week in a play yard that my coworker was taking care of because she use to have adult dogs in there. I thought all those puppies went to their forever homes. Someone came and filled in for that coworker & he's "special" (is what the boss lady said) and I don't know if he just "forgot" or was focused on the usual things the normal worker does but he didn't take care of these puppies! And I wasn't told my puppies where in there! Am I suppose to take care of them? I was never told.
Yesterday was the first day that I'v ever hated my job. I got in my car & started crying.
Long story short I'm stressed, exhausted & overwhelmed.
