My husbands workplace is really messing up his schedule. One of his co-workers was going to go back to school so they hired a new employee and shortly after the new guy was hired, but before he started the guy who’d said he was going to go back to school and had asked to cut down his hours said he wasn’t going back to school.
Unfortunately, by this time it was too late to “unhire” the new guy so my husband, Chris, the guy who was going back to school and then wasn’t and another guy all lost one shift per week to accommodate the new hire! So my husband went down from four shifts a week to three.
Now my husband is an attendant in the Recovery Room and he came up with an idea … he asked his boss if he could train in the Operating Room as they’re always short staffed there so over the last few weeks he’s been training one day a week there. Now this week the new guy started in the Recovery room and after the first day he couldn’t handle how busy it was and he’s going back to his old job in the hospital!
Unfortunately my husbands hours are still in jeopardy. The guy who was going to go back to school is going to go back in January and now another coworker wants to cut back his hours so they will still need to hire another worker … so my husband might be able to pick up more hours in the Operating Room now that he’s been trained there .. but he’s now thinking about starting over and going back to school too .. he’s noticed a demand in Physical Therapist Jobs so maybe going back to school for a career as a physical therapist.
We’re just hoping that over the next few months he gets enough hours for us to scrape by!
