1: Its a salaried position.
2: its 3rd shift w/o shift differential (see #1)
3: there are required manager classes. They are only held around noon. and theres no compensation for attending.
4: The management benefits (medical,dental, retirement...) are not that much better.
5: Theres no OT.
6: If the union guy calls in - YOU WILL BE WORKING. No one else will cover 3rd shift...LOL So you have to make sure you get sleep every day just in case.
7: The 3rd shift union guy has been with the hospital for 11 years now = lots of time off (See #2, 5, & 6)
8: the current 3rd shift super hired his buddy from housekeeping. He doesn't get a day off, his buddy is, after 3yrs in this dept, STILL calling him every time theres a problem. That poor super doesn't really get a day off and I don't want to be THAT guy. Don't get me wrong, hes a good guy/friend, just not an IT guy and doesn't care to keep learning.
9: management in the past 3 years has gotten 2.5%, 2.5%, 3%. Union has gotten 8%, 8%, 6.5%. Even if they offered me 10K more the union position would surpass that in about 6 years.
10: Union position has some job security. They have to give notice of layoff and try to fit you into a different dept if theres an opening. Managers get a pat on the back as they're excorted out w/o notice. The 3rd shift union guy was the 3rd shift housekeeping manager. He says he'll never go back to being management again.
theres probably more that I've forgotten. LOL
