Fast paced job?
I'm 37 and work as a waitress/ supervisor in a restaurant.
I struggle every day ( some shifts are better than others)
I often have 1am finishes which means that I can't get out of bed until I have to get ready for work again.
There are certain jobs in work that I just can't do anymore and although my colleagues try to be understanding , I feel that because I don't look I'll most of the time, they think I'm milking it. Therefore I end up taking too much on.
I kind of feel that I know you need to be fast and efficient in an environment like that and if I can't do the job quickly and efficiently, then that means that I can't do the job
Subsequently my hands are nearly always swollen and I'm limping by the end of the night.
I also get days off for appointments but if I cut my hours down, I only get paid for the hours I do.
Is anyone else caught in a similar trap, if so what to do?
