So this new job is turning out to be quite the cluster ****. While I am enjoying most of it, the babysitting that goes on with my community outreach specialists is ridiculous. Three of them have missed at least one day of work a week since I started. They are not getting assignments to me on time, are fudging numbers of participants in the program and have basically been doing jack **** in the interim of not having a supervisor. So one of these worthless employees tried to turn in a time sheet to me last week that had over time on it. OVERTIME! This girl is here 30-ish hours a week tops. Left off blatant things like being 3 hours late to work one morning and leaving 3 hours early for a dentist appointment one evening. Well, I had my talk with her, and now I have to set up a "counselling" session with her and HR to discuss her absences and the importance of having a totally accurate time card. (Are you ****ING KIDDING ME???????????) Then she will put on official warning about her behavior. Then who knows what will happen. This woman is wasting so much of my time right now it is not even funny and sucking money from the grant every hour that she is clocked in. Why does it take so long to fire someone? (I know the answer to this, it's more rhetorical) She should've been on the curb months ago. I swear if we get re-funded for June, everybody gets the ax.
