My manager didn't do it

February 7th, 2018 at 12:40 pm

I emailed my manager, who is traveling this week, asking about the help wanted ads for my job, and why the 2 I've seen say "Full time."

There were some here who were quick to say he plans to replace you as soon as he finds someone, it's too much trouble to accommodate your needs, etc.

That really didn't sound like my manager.

He responded back to me yesterday that he had not asked for that and that he would contact the recruiter to tell them to add the part-time part of it. I sent him 2 of the ads so he could see them.

My guess is that, busy as he always is, he never took the time to check out the ads, and I'm also guessing the recruiters make more money for a full-time placement than a part-time placement. It's probably the reason my manager had told me earlier he'd never had much success finding a part-time person!

I sent a note to the recruiter and heard back from him almost immediately. He did not see on the links to the ads I sent him where it said full-time; I had to send him a screen grab; once I did that, he quickly said he would fix it.

    That's good news PS, that means there really is hope that you can get what you want. Always good to communicate. I still stand by what I wrote. Those running businesses have the right to hire for part time/full time in the way that is right for them. Yes, some can and will attempt to accommodate. I was actually able to turn a full time job into part time. I went from 40 hours five days a week to 24 hours three days a week, and I worked Monday, Tuesday and Fridays...the busiest days, this was for a large corporation. Clearly your manager wants to make it work and only you know the type of person he is compared to those of us just reading your posts.

    Thanks, Creditcardfree. I always welcome your opinion and balanced views, but there is one person here in particular who is incredibly negative; it gets tiresome after a while. I was not referring to you.

    I just knew my view was a bit opposite, but negatively is irritating in all it's forms!

    Good, I'm glad your read was right, and fingers crossed things work out.
