Last week I found out that the 20 year old student is being paid $1.50 more an hour than me at work. I asked my boss for a pay rise before going to camp so she could get it sorted for my return to work this week. She was pissed off with the student for telling me and I can guess why. I rang and asked her on Tuesday and she said yes I have a pay rise but only an extra $1 an hour and then she rang back and said no I didn’t have it. She needed to wait for the big boss to agree to it…..I’m not going to get any where near what they are paying the student so I handed in my notice yesterday. I have been there longer and have been left in charge and I think I should be on more than the student. One of the other girls also handed in her notice yesterday and another part timer is also leaving at the end of April. There isn’t going to be many left to do the hours and it’s in Westfields so there are late nights and all weekend work. Oh well, not my problem really. There has been alot of things happening at work hence why everyone is leaving.
But I do have a new job with is at The Scrapbook Company here in Christchurch. I will be working in the store from time to time and also doing classes. My first class will be after easter and I am so looking forward to it. I feel so happy as this is what I have been wanting to do for a long time. I was on the Design Team at Scrapbook Art but gave it up for my new job. It’s really nice to be a tutor again and it’s where I want to be.
I will update on the Bannockburn camp when I get photo’s sorted….watch this space!
