Saturday job change

March 8th, 2009 at 12:03 pm

Currently I work 2 Saturday jobs, alternating at each office. A few weeks ago I found out that during the summer, we are not scheduling on Saturdays beginning in mid-May in the one office. This is the job I was looking to replace for several months now. Even though the economy is certainly not the best right now, I figured I would see if I could work every Saturday at the other job. So last Saturday when I worked there I asked the boss if I could pick up an additional 2 Saturdays/month. He said that he thought it would be possible, just had to have the receptionists take a close look at the schedule. Well, by Tuesday of this week I got a call from the office telling me that I can start every Saturday beginning in April!

This position definitely involves more of a commute, but I believe it is well worth it. I will be grossing at least $180/month more because of more hours & increased hourly rate over the job.

Now, I have the dreadful job of confronting my other boss and letting him know my future plans (which involves me working there only 1 more Saturday). I absolutely dislike confrontation like this, but then I guess no one enjoys it...

    The quicker you tell him, the better you will feel. Kind of like taking off a band aid!! It's really great news.

    creditcardfree-You are right. He won't be able to do anything about it anyhow.

    Good for you, the extra cash would be great. Good luck with your boss

    Really, all you're doing is bumping up the schedule of no Saturdays from mid-May to mid-March. He shouldn't be too upset about it, right?

    I am with CCF and the band-aid theory! The last time I had to give this type of news I was stunned by the virtual lack of response I received from the employer. She just said, "okay" and that was it! I was happy that I didn't have to offer reasons for my change. It went really well, and I am sure yours will also!
