My boss wants me to work at another location of his that is in desperate need of help, and promote to GM.
As you all know, when I began working for PJ last year, I just wanted a 2 day a week cook job, and then went ahead and accepted a shift manager promotion about 6 months ago, and then my reoccuring back problems came back, and I was off for almost 3 months.
Now, I am slowly working my way back into my hours…and rather than me working my 40 hour a week, daytime Saturday/Sunday off (because I coach the team he sponsors is why I had weekends off) job as a shift leader, if I accepted the GM slot, I would be working Saturday and Sunday, and my only 2 nights off would be the nights my kids are at their school basketball games.
Yet, I don’t want to decline the position, because I think that the girl who has been working my shift while I was recovering will cause a stink (she’s in cahoots with that one employee who went postal on me many moons ago) and it may end up with me being unemployed.
It’s just a gut feeling I have, considering now that I am working some hours, this woman doesn’t even talk to me at all when I come in…in fact…she seems to take great effort in avoiding me…which, when she wanted to get a job at PJ again, she had no problem “loving me up” for a good reference.
So…in my shoes…help me figure this one out. Sure, I wouldn’t mind the GM title and pay…but I needed the hours that I worked so hard for as a shift leader at the store in my town to accomodate coaching the PJ team (their games are on the weekends) as well as being there for my own kids at their games.
This other location is about 20 miles one way, and isn’t open in the day except for Friday/Saturday/Sunday…the rest of the time, it’s open 4 - 11 p.m.
It was just part of the franchises he bought when he bought ours…I guess they came as a package deal, and this one is just not in the best location for good #'s, yet, when I worked there last weekend to reprieve an assistant manager for his vacation, the day shift volume doubled each day…which means that us suspecting the former management was turning down orders may ring true.
Ugh…why does it all have to be so confusing?
Thanks for letting me ramble.
