Update! Someone else’s vacation deprives me of grocery money for 2 days!

The temp agency just called. I have a new “case worker” (I think her real title is client manager) who was very apologetic. It seems there was confusion about the timeline for approving my time sheet from my supervisor, who also happens to be on vacation.

The temp people were very apologetic, and I explained that this was verging on insult, after taking on so much additional responsibility. They are going to try to get me more money (again). My only responsibility is to complain to my case worker if I don;t get an email confirmation by 5pm on Mondays that my time sheet has been accepted.

Oh my god, these people are crazy. But as she said on the phone, “You work for Temp Agency X, we want you to be happy.” I doubt it, but I am so glad that I spoke up, not only about the payment issue, but about the situation in general.
