Three months ago, I started my first part-time job with a company that lets me work on college football games on the weekends somewhat close to where I live. However, due to the fact that this is my first job experience, as well as the amount of work I have to do as a full-time college student, this job has been extremely demanding, considering the $8-hour pay.
Last week, unfortunately, I couldn't attend last week's football game because of the sudden, increased amount of schoolwork I had to finish that week. However, this Thanksgiving is another large football game between two football rivalries, and the demand for workers is great.
The amount of work I would be doing is not a problem, but since I had already made plans to visit my family and my ill grandmother that day, I would have to leave work again, putting my mental health and my time with family off, and putting work first instead, despite the terrible work environment.
I had talked on the phone to my supervisor about not attending this game, but she disputed to me that I had signed up when I had met her that I would be attending every game, and had continued to argued with me until I had told her that I would try and change plans. Because of this, I'm afraid that the few shifts that I would miss work would affect make me seem irresponsible on the first job. Would this affect my future job employment?
