I have been an employee with the same commercial HVAC installation company for the past 10 years.
I stayed with the company for so long because of the benefits and paid time off.
When I was hired 10 years ago, I had a week of paid vacation and 10 personal days. After five years, I had two weeks of paid vacation. Last year I passed that 10-year mark and now I have three weeks of paid vacation and 10 personal days. Unfortunately, the new personal day policy will make it harder to use my personal days. The new policy states that all personal days must be requested five days in advance. We used to be able to wake up in the morning and take a personal day. If I was feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, I could take a personal day. If I was sick to my stomach or had a sore throat, I could take a personal day. The best part about the personal days was being able to take them anytime you needed or wanted. Now all of that is changing because the new manager wants things to be different. The guy has been changing a lot of our rules and regulations. Now we will have to request a personal day the week before and the day must be approved by management. If the manager thinks we will be too busy, he can deny the request. I’m very unhappy with the new rules and I think it might be time to start looking for a new HVAC installation and repair job.
