The state employee is a difficult soul . They are given several holidays, paid very little, have excellent insurance benefits and retirement, leave and most promotions are given after TIME served or basically WHO YOU KNOW! I have been afforded alot of change in my duties because I volunteer for every type of NEW assignment given. I am now in an assistant supervisor position where there is a secretary, the supervisor and 7 other persons in a unit. THERE are coworkers who require no assistance and others who basically should not be doing the job at all. I enjoy talking to people at work when at xerox machine, in route to another part of building,break time, etc., but I am a different soul when interrupted in my workplace. I feel that you have been given a job to do and YOU SHOULD DO IT TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILTIY. YOU ARE EARNING A PAYCHECK, which alot of people wish they had-WHY ARE you hear to waste time—and if I see a waste of time, then input should be put in writing to let you know that this is your job and not a playground. I an not liked…I know alot of people are upset with me based on this belief. I am not looking for friends. I have husband,kids,social activities,etc. TODAY, I was told I was emotionally ill by an employee who is unable to keep up. She stated, your tone is condescending. My mother and husband have told me this…What can I do to improve this? What can I read?, HELP?
