Here is what has happened at work this week. Plus how I was trained.
I work at 2 parking garages as well as at a parking lot. For the 2 parking garages I will name them garage A and garage B. Both of them have same number of levels.
When I was trained a couple of weeks ago by the other porter who worked there, he told me to start with the parking lot, then clean garage A and then clean garage B. This porter was promoted to a porter manager, but he is now over a different area of garages. The porter manager who calls me with duties he wants me to do is over this garage as well as the garage manager.
There is a maintenance checklist that I have to use everyday at work. It states what needs to be done, but not in a specific order. I have to check off each duty I complete, and I have to put it in the garage manager's inbox at the parking garage office where I and the other porters clock in at. There is also a section on this maintenance checklist for any comments. This is where I document any problems I am having, any concerns I have or the duties that the porter manager has me do. The garage manager is supposed to look the checklists I turn in, but lately I have noticed a pile of them still in his inbox at the parking garage office where I clock in at.
Earlier this week I was at garage A when I got a call from the porter manager over the 2 garages I work at letting me know that he wanted me to complete a project at garage B. So I stopped what I was doing, & I went to complete the project. While I was doing the project, I noticed that it was time to do one of my space counts according to the space count list. So I stopped what I was doing, & I started my space count. While I was in the middle of the space count, the same porter manager called me & asked me where I was & why I had not completed the project. I explained to him where I was, what I was doing, and how far I got along completing the project he wanted me to do.
Today I started at garage B after cleaning the parking lot since I had received a phone call from the porter manager about my needing to complete a project at that garage earlier this week while I was at garage A. After finishing at garage B, I walked over to garage A to start cleaning it. That was when I saw the porter manager as well as the garage manager entering that garage while using the golf cart. It was not long after that when I saw them exit the garage. That was when the porter manager stopped the golf cart, walked up to me, and asked me why I had not cleaned that garage. He let me know that the garage manager got on his behind for that garage not being cleaned. That was when he told me to start at garage B every morning.
Later today he let me know that the original porter and he will walk me through the procedure they want me to follow everyday beginning this Thursday.
If I had known to start at garage B, I would have already done that.
