Why Do You Keep Doing This To Us?

Sure, free stuff is cool. We all love to get free stuff. Especially when that free stuff is useful. But am I really the only one out there that thinks an upper management mandated employee appreciation day/week is utterly rediculous and counter productive?

I’ve been through five… six of these so far and not once have I felt even slightly more appreciated than I have on an average day. Everyone knows that it’s by command of upper management. Most people realize that it was prompted by some study, somewhere, that says that employees will feel more appreciated when celebrated.

Sure. I feel appreciated by upper management. I truly believe that they appreciate the hard work that us peons put in on a daily basis. Do I feel that our immediate management appreciates us? Of course not.

Would you feel appreciated by a mandated employee appreciation day?

I’m Baaaaaack

Just giving anyone reading a quick update. After a two year hiatus, I have returned to the world of minimum wage jobs. I can’t promise regular blog entries. I can’t even promise blogging during my breaks like was my original plan. I can promise to update when I can.

If you are interested in blogging here about your own minimum wage job experiences, click on contributors in the menu and fill out the form. I can assure you that you’ll hear from me quickly. You can be as anonymous as you want. I only ask that you keep the language and posts at a PG level.
