Jury’s still out

Posted in The Job - Experience by 200

I’ve put in to reduce my hours, but it’s like waiting for Christmas (which I can’t get off, by the way, again).

I’ve now worked for this lot for around 33 years and feel it’s about time to slow down a bit. As I’ve mentioned before, I can’t fully retire on just the police pension as I still have children at home who want to go to uni.

So I officially applied to drop my hours to give me more time to chill out a bit and pursue one or two new interests I;ve taken up since I retired from the uniformed job.

The only trouble is I can’t get anyone to make a decision. I don’t know how many departments it takes to decide that i can work a few days a month less but who ever I ask it seems to be somebody else.

Come on guys, pull some fingers out, I want to plan my life.

    After 33 years haven’t you realised that they don’t give a **** what you want?
    In the same position, it took 14 months to reduce my hours by 16 hours a month – and then I had to promise to cover those hours for the sickness and holidays of my shift.

    I think it is awful.
    Mind you, I wanted to reduce my hours and had to wait 6-7 months before it was agreed.
    Mind you, I only work in a supermarket, not the police force.
