I hate my new job *vent*

So I started a new job a little over a week ago. I loved my old job, but my shortest drive was 45 min each way, and my longest a hour and a half. I got so tired of driving, then they stopped paying miliage, so I took a pretty significant pay cut to work closer to home. I only wanted part time, and I told them in order to break even I had to have about 32 hours a week, in wich they told me I would. I get my schedule for this week, and I am at 26 hours. That kinda defeated the purpose of me leaving my other job. I thought I would like this place, but I hate it. They are so disorganized, I want to choke myself. Today I worked untill noon, and as I was clocking out, it told me I was clocking out early. Knowing I was supposed to leave at noon, I didn't pay it any attention. A few minutes ago I check my schedule on the computer to see if they had posted holiday hours yet, and I see that they have changed my schedule for the entire week. I was supposed to work until 3 today, and they had changed it Friday, and no one had notified me. I am a grown woman, and I know something's going to get said about it tommorow, and I really don't want to deal with this. I don't even want to go back, but I know my SO would have something to say about that lol. I already have an application in at another place, and am praying that they call. Hopefully I can make it here until then. I just want to scream.

Look on the bright side, if you're only getting 26 hours. that leaves 14 hours a week to find something better. Keep plugging away

That really sucks. I hate jobs that are like that.

I was working in a cafe a couple of months back and they were a bit like this. They said I'd be doing just weekends regularly and then they'd put me on weekdays with like two days notice - not cool because I'd already agreed for shifts for my other job. The only way to check the roster would be to come in - so I'd check it on the weekend and then on payday I'd come in and they'd roster me on for the next day without notice. So disorganised there. Just keep looking, something will come up.

When they say something, be honest. Say "this is the roster I received and therefore I made my plans around it". Tell them you're happy to work more/different hours (if you are) but you need to know. If you have to check the rosters work out what day to do that on - they can't just expect you to know.

Hope things get better!
