I'm merely commenting on her ingratitude of what she got as a probationary employee who is on part-time hours, and her supervisor's unprofessionalism.
Probationary period was one month-- after the first month, as written in the literature, a pay increase was applied. After the first month passed, I waited a couple of weeks to see if he would mention anything. He did not, so I did.
Mame, in your previous post you extolled the virtues and boasted of working in another industry where the bonuses were gigantic. Essentially, you told me tea was piddly.
So how do you justify my busting my ass and then asking for what is warranted as ingratitude?[/quote]
Sorry, I've been busy and didn't see your post till today.
Your last sentence is what bugs me... how do you know what is warranted in that company after having only been there two months, and part-time at that?
I wasn't boasting about gigantic bonuses - I merely told you what it was like in that industry. My bonuses were piddly compared to the engineers and geologists, I assure you. But I've also worked in other companies and during lean times where bonuses were never an option. Does that mean you wouldn't bust your ass for them? No, it just means you do your work and unfortunately, don't get a bonus. Bonuses (to me) are a privilege, not a right.
I don't know about the tea business and I am not saying it was piddly. The least you could do is not put words in my mouth. It could be just THAT tea company which is cheap - how would I know? Your inference is your problem.
I was mainly talking about your time there and your expectation after such a short period. And I believe I did say that the person who told you that you were going to get a bonus was waaaay out of line.
