After a day dedicated to nothing but my day job (day 241 to go) I'm back at work a full day again today. I have spoken to my line manager and asked for a transfer to another location, to try to ease my stress at working in poor conditions here.
The established, experienced core of the team are all disgruntled, to say the least, at the structure and leadership at present and all are looking at alternatives. The replacements as people leave are generally young girls, in the mould of the manager, and have been unreliable and of a poor standard. My employer pays poorly, has a poor reputation and offers no immediate career prospects, so it can be difficult to attract quality applicants.
I await the response from other locations in the region that are looking for staff, at what can be a busy time for the retail industry.
All part of keeping my sanity and preserving my work/life balance when I need to use my 'off-work' time in the most fruitful way possible.
This leads to my next quest - a timetable of events for the next 240 days to ensure I'm ready.The NEW Amazon Fire phone
