    Sucks, but seems to be a sign of the times across many different fields. Hope things work out how you like...but as they say, I'd be looking.

    Sounds like you've been there so long you are being taken for granted. Time to go fishing for that new position.

    Tell them you want 2 days off all the time as well and see how others do filling in. Maybe they'll appreciate your efforts a bit more then

    Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. I get a kick out of everyone who hasn't worked on a line. This is par for the course. I still remember working day (18-20 hours a day) from right after Thanksgiving until like the 2nd of January. Son knows what I mean, this is why everyone in the business is plain were so far beyond burned out.

    I have decided to wait until after thanksgiving to talk to them. I have a few interviews for day jobs or replacements so I need to see what's available first in case it doesn't go the way I hope.

    Can't afford to be out of work at all. I do think my efforts are under appreciated and taken for granted.

    I'm going to ask for a raise as well as tell them if they need me to work days as well il need the overtime or I can't do it and il have to get a day job because otherwise its not benefitting me or if a decent salary is offered I may take it.

    I appreciate all the replies and advice!

    Im pissed just reading the guy rant about this place.

    Unfortunately, sounds all too familiar. Im working at a restaurant which just opened 18 days ago, and even though I got hired for full time, Ive only worked 36 hours since we opened doors, my schedule has been changed 7 times to accommodate the need or non need for me, and lately Ive been only asked to come in for prime hours. I am super stoked to be working under the chefs Im working under because they are well known around this city, but I feel your pain man.

    Your boss sounds like he's dealing with some stuff he can't handle.

    Keep in mind, you are having a bad time because he is screwing this up, and therefore he needs someone's help.
