Are you shitting me ???!?!!!?!

So i started a new job back in July, and since day 1 I've been turning up half hour early, and working through my hour long lunch break. Since starting there I've taken a lunch break ONCE. So today I was asked to sign my timesheets, and I noticed that last week I've been docked pay for swiping out of work ONE minute early. When I questioned this, my boss (who's an accountant, not an IT person) said that when I turn up early, it's for MY benefit, not theirs. I pointed out that I'm doing an extra 7.5 hours a week of work above and beyond, and all I got was "you're not getting around me on this".

Am I wrong in thinking that he's being a prick for docking my pay for being one minute early swiping out, when I've been putting in an extra 7.5 hours PER WEEK since July????

****ing bean counters.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Are you shitting me ???!?!!!?!

Yeah we have an HR manager. But you know what .... he's dealt the burning cards, he can play them. If he's more concerned with a single minute over 7.5 hours a week, so be it. Less work for me

Never give more than you have to...unless you're self employed getting to work early, staying late and working through YOUR lunch helps no one but the COMPANY. Will you see a benefit? From the sounds of it you didn't and you won't.

I work 12 hour shifts, 730-730.. day and night shifts... Got to love shift work.

I can show up at 630.. but if I leave at 727... I get docked half an hour, or that is how it is supposed to work. Other people with the same company as me, have been getting docked.

Do I care? Not really... Want to know why? Because the other contracting companies, used to get away with charging for 12 hours, when their guys would only be there for 11.


Just stop coming in early.. And start taking your lunch breaks. Doing what you are doing, rarely gets you farther.

Re: Are you shitting me ???!?!!!?!

Yeah that's exactly what I'm doing from now on. If an issue comes up outside of 9-5, it'll be "My boss said working outside of those hours is for my benefit not the company's, so as I'm here to benefit the company I'll fix it tomorrow"

I start work at 5am. Work only 3miles away. Leave shortly before 4:30 but not for the companies benefit. I like to cruise around the open roads with minimal traffic

Anyone can drive a fast bike, few can drive a bike fast!

Then I would make it a point to sit on my ass and do nothing for 27 minutes the next day. Only fair, right?

OK, here it comes.....

If you have your hand in the doggy's mouth you say "Good Doggy".

You will never win the fight. Clock in when expected because you are the only one who looses out. Your boss doesn't give a **** because it's not his pay check.

Re: Are you shitting me ???!?!!!?!

That seems very harsh to me.. Very petty I couldnt work for a company like that with twats for managers.

I work from home 99% of the time, ive been to my office twice this year I go for an hour plus bike ride during the day and as long as the work is done then I fill my day as I wish (within reason). Would find that type of environment very hard

Oh I'm still saying good dog, but now he's getting canned food instead of steak.
