I have worked for the same company for over 6 years as a casual employee. They had a full time position available so i applied because i love my job. I was denied full time because i need to "lead the shop not respond to it". This confused me because most days that i work its with the manager and assistant manager so i can't tell them what to do. I have no idea how to lead and not respond whatever the hell that means when i have no authority over anyone else there. I do still want to work there i just have lost respect for the owner and his son who now pretty much runs everything. I will apply once more for full time if there is an opening again but if i'm not accepted i will go find another job. I work every weekend and barely ever get to hang out with my friends and i also have only had 3 sick days the entire time i've worked for them. I am an loyal employee and a honest one. Getting no respect for all my hard work i do lately is just really getting on my nerves. I enjoy selling the stuff that i do and working with the other staff on the floor with me.

What I have to say isn't exactly the same but...
Where I work, I'm doing full-time hours on part-time pay, more hours than anyone else who works in my section. And I carry the bulk of the work load because all the others slack off, and because I'm the closer at night, I'm expected to finish what wasn't done during the day -on top of my own responsibility. I'm covering for four other people who get away with doing the bare minimum...but the moment I pause to breathe, I get in trouble. And I've talked with practically everyone who can do something about it...to no avail. I'm reaching my stress limit, if I haven't already broken it, and my physical limit...
Thing is, I like my job. I'm good at it. I don't want to do it forever...but I've learned a lot and I'm more out of my shell than ever before. It's the people there and the unfairness that I can't deal with...
Even though this wasn't the same circumstance, I understand that frustrating lack of respect.

It can be frustrating but I'm happy where I am and I enjoy my work just dont like the people I work for sometimes
