    How exactly do optional days work and how many is one allowed. I'm a new pt supervisor and I have a girl who has been out so far 38 days since January. About half of those times she request an optional day.

    I'm 12 and what is this.

    My building frequently have high seniority PTers with a second FT or PT job take a lot of unpaid days off. Just depends on your FT management. They would rather work a $10/hr new hire with no benefits then a $30/hr PTer just to keep the new guy showing up everyday. As a PT sup it is really none of your concern.

    You are correct but it is your FT managements decision to give an employee the day off or not. Could be more here then you know about.

    At my hub, they are more sweaty than the hourly employees. That's pretty dumb if you ask me. Although, if the union gave a crap, they could shut that down pronto.

    Yes. Pretty annoyed.

    And I never got any formal training. I was an hourly for 4 months and was going to quit because the pay sucked and I hated paying union dues, so my full time supe promoted me to keep me. Now I just stand around on my phone until it's time to leave. I try my best not to touch a thing because some people get butt hurt about it if I try to help them. I'm just waitin till I get fired or promoted again.
