My boss continues to commit PD and hemorrhage staff. This month alone our best technical staff member and a low-level, but necessary and only person on that level, staff member have quit and we have no replacements save very inexperienced college students here for the summer who aren't exactly motivated.
That leaves us down to one technical staff member two days a week who is actually reliable and one who comes in once a week and is unreliable. And no one else. We require at least two full time (preferably three) and 1-2 full time non-technical employees to keep Boss from losing her mind and throwing things/slamming doors/having a hissy fit. We actually need more as we as expanding by 50%. We also severely need a high level technical associate as Boss does not wish to cover on call anymore, but refuses to hire anyone with experience.
The newest issue is her throwing a fit about working with all these people who haven't a clue and having our office manager send out a text at 6 pm tonight saying there's a mandatory 8 am meeting tomorrow. On my day off and at least two other staff members'. I admit to getting a little testy about it.
I will not be attending. I'm 100% sure I will not be fired, but will receive some PA blow back from it. My resume is going out tonight. The camel's back is shaking from the weight of the straw. I have a LOT to do tomorrow including prepping my old car for sale ASAP, doctor's appointment and a meeting at the dealership where I bought my new car to learn how to use those new-fangled techie thingies.
ETA: Boss turned down a very easy-going, qualified, experienced technical candidate who asked for no more than the pittance we pay because she wasn't "polished" enough. *hits head on wall*
