So I really like my job and my coworkers and the students, but HR drives me bananas.
I’m coming up on my one year anniversary here which means I will automatically be enrolled in a retirement plan and there is a meeting I should go to in order to have all my questions answered. At 9:30 am.
This would be fine if I worked a normal schedule or even worked a night schedule and got off at 8 am. But no, I get off work at 2 am. So I figured I’d email HR and be proactive and find out if I could meet with someone some other time and they’re like, “We have these meetings every week at 9:30, if there’s a week that would work better for you!” Despite my specific explanation of my inability to come in that early.
I talked to my coworker who previously had this position and he verified that HR basically always forget it exists.
