To the Gallows

So now we have the supervisors doing this rotatey thing where they work on both day watches or both night watches. The underlying reason is supposedly to have consistency across the board.
Surprise, surprise! Guess what? That's the way the supervisors work at Acadian! Imagine that!
Your thoughts?

Consistency, huh? Well now instead of having to cater to two supervisors we now have to learn the idiosycracies of four supervisors. If we all follow the same rules what's the problem?

Didn't quite finish. Give 'em a chance. Hopefully if they present an idea that just doesn't quite work as expected they will take the appropriate action, whether it be going back to "the way it was" or trying something completely different. I am completely willing to try new things and do what is necessary to keep NOHD going. When the new administration was coming in, it was difficult not to subscribe to the "dastardly deeds" school of thought; however, I think M & J have done an outstanding job so far and have given me no reason to believe they will not continue to do so. Do you not change things in your life based on previous experience? Presumably Mark changed thier schedules based on previous experience that served him well.

Good point, scooter. Just because something is new doesn't mean its bad; and becaue it works at another company doesn't mean it's evil. We made rules at lifeguard that reflected NOHD's whe nI was there. As lond as it works, and it improves performace. We'll see what happens!

It was my understanding that it was because medic's on other watch's couldnt pull the wool over the eye's of the supervisors that were on the other watch. I.E. "We dont do that on our watch" Or "Cliff said that we could do the swap" And both day or night supers on the other watchs never got to talk to each other because they never saw each other. If that was the case then 6220 should be on the "Staggered" shift only to overlap diffrent watch's supers. So they can share info about employee's and such..

Things seem to be working out so far with Reis and Saucey. They seem to have a genuine concern about turning our company around, and making us more professional. Look at what happened during Mardi Gras-NO ROLLOVERS!! I've come to the conclusion that they are really here to do good for us, not to turn us into Acadian, like so many people thought in the beginning (including myself).
