Appologies in advance for the rant and length of this post For anyone who works, or has worked/knows someone who has worked, at TRU, did you enjoy it at all? would you recomend working there (not long term, but at most a year or two type of thing)? Right now I'm a bakery supervisor, but for a number of reasons I'm getting extremely fed up with where I work. I've tried switching areas in the store, but have ended up being drawn back to the bakery because I enjoyed the baking and some of the people there. Unfortunately, most of the mature people I used to get along with have left, and while there are a couple of newer staff that I get along with, for the most part it's not the same anymore. Even the baking has lost it's appeal now since most of the time I'm doing the baking plus 3 other jobs it seems (even though in most cases it's because other people aren't taking their jobs seriously and either leave it for me/someone else, or just don't come to work for one reason or another. What's worse is that quite often, I can't even get on people's cases about some of the things that they leave because the other supervisor either does the exact same thing, or just tells them it's ok to do it, since she thinks I'm the workhorse of the department). I know every job has it's problems, and there will always be some people who don't care about their jobs, but it's become not just problematic sometimes, but ALL the time, and I'm just getting tired of the grind of it. People come to me and bitch about how our manager isn't doing anything to help them out, or how others aren't doing their jobs constantly, yet they're the ones who are doing nothing most of the time while our manager (who is by far one of the best managers I've ever worked with) is picking up the slack for them just so the few serious people don't kill themselves. Unfortunately for me, I'm extremely serious about work, and while I've had people tell me not to worry so much, and that 'tommorow always comes', I can't leave things in a mess for other people after me, and so I end up pushing myself harder than I should, missing all my breaks and lunch pretty much on a daily basis (in some cases at the same time working a 13 hr shift), and working myself to the point where I finally am too sick to work (ie I can't breath, or am puking) thanks to spending way too many hours in the freezers putting away the stuff that other people were supposed to, but left it for me and now the other departments want it put away. I've really reached the point where I feel anxiety every time I think about work. There's nothing there anymore for me, and it feels more like I'm staying there out of guilt than anything. There is no enjoyable aspect to it anymore. I'm not expecting a super fun, happy work environment or anything like that, but there should be some aspect of enjoyment at least. Instead it's nothing but stress and negativity that seems to be found in my department. It just seems like I need to get out of there now before I ruin my attitude and my health. I love to work, and I don't want to loose that by being put off by this experience. As far as my health, I'm getting more and more sick, my back and neck are starting to develop problems (I'm having problems turning my head to the left now without a sharp pain in my neck), I'm not eating properly (the no break/lunch thing), and I can't even sleep properly anymore due to work. Taking antacids all the time to avoid ulcers is just not fun... So anyway, back to the point of this thread, I've seen a posting for TRU night stocking that I've considered applying for, but I'm not sure if I'm going to just be walking into the same thing. Moneywise, I'd actually be making the same at TRU as I do now I think, and I'd be getting the same amount of hours. I think there would actually be more regularity to the shifts being worked, and I'm more interested in toys than in food, so at least I'd have something to work with that I'm interested in. I'm a night person, so I've got no real problem with the night shifts (hell, university showed me how to work well at night haha), and there may be some similarly paying day jobs from the sound of it when I talked to some of the people at the store. But I'm still not sure if it's worth quiting my current job. I'm not looking at this as a career. I actually graduated with a first class honors bsc in archaeology, but unfortunately the job market is pretty low for jobs in that field. I'm going back to university once I've got the money to, so I'm not looking at this as a permanent move. If anyone has any advice or stories/rants about TRU that they would like to share, I'd definitely appreciate it.
