Is there something about the general manager that says - "when I am gone, you can do what you want to do." That seems to be the theme for today.
The general manager made it very clear to everyone that there was to be no overtime for anyone. I took it to mean that the company could not afford to pay overtime. That did not stop at least 4 people from putting in overtime today. It was not that the work needed to be done right away, no, it was more of a case of milking what hours they could. I did see one of my co-workers fill out a form for an advance on his paycheck and he was one of the ones who was milking the hours.
Two of the people were supervisors and two of them were their "golden boys," the ones who could do no wrong in their eyes, even though they constantly make mistakes and are incredibly slow.
I can't wait to see if there is any punishment for those who are milking the hours. Most companies that say no to overtime have mandated that all claimed overtime will not be paid for unless it was PREAUTHORIZED with a signed note, not post authorized.
