Scheduled work days (not work schedules)
The more and more places I visit, and one I worked for seem to be on this whole work-day schedule thing. Ex: 0800-1700 = training (not always good either), repairing rigs, flushing hydrants and testing them, painting hydrants, inspections, etc etc etc. Maybe they get an hour for lunch. Thank God my new job requires only that I be at scheduled training (usually 2 or 3 times per month for a few hours), be to work on time, and run calls. In other words they leave us alone for the most part.
So how many of you have these scheduled work days? What do you do during these hours and does it serve a purpose other than ("the public likes to see us stay busy and we save the city lots of money by taking on other tasks and we have more training hours than anyone else so we are Grrrreat!") how ddo you feel about these scheduled days?? Let us know...curious?
