Possibly Bad, Possibly Not!
« on: May 21, 2013, 12:23:49 PM »
Our department has been taken over by a private company.  The options re secretarial staff are:
A) Trust deployment to other areas
B) Secretaries move with the department to a site a good distance away.

If B is offered but refused for any reason that's it. Goodbye
We're all worried about jobs now. It's the same anywhere I guess.  Personally the best strategy for me is to do as much as possible. Just type as many reports as I can.  Typing reports is usually about a quarter of my job but there islots of eemphasis on how many we are being proven to do. Of course once the other parttime person returns next month there will be less typing for us all to do so we'll be fighting to prove our worth.

I'm remaining as positive as possible but inside I'm as scared as everyone else.  Anyone got any coping strategies?  Xxx

That's rough! I don't know that there's any etiquette to deal with here; you might want to move it to the INAH or Coffee Break area.

Sounds like you're doing all you can do, but since there's no way to force the issue, you might try applying for other positions in the area just to see if something else comes along.
