Model worker or backstabber that needs to be strangled and stuffed in the crawlspace? Ok so at my job we have one guy thats a really good painter. He does everything right down to the letter and fast. Even to the point where he tries to make the rest of us stop using creative methods for solving small problems even if he has no authority to tell anyone at all what to do. Lets call him.....Snitch So this guy Snitch. If he adds and extra 20 min to the 30 min break then he will take 20 min off his "Hours" for the day. One day being 8 hours he will write 7.40 instead. Our real work hours: start at 07:00 Breakfast at 09:00-09:30 lunch at 13:00-13:30 Work stops at 16:00 (15:30 because the construction site closes at 16:00 so workers need to be out of there by then) The way we do it usualy. meet up at 07.00 drink coffe and be lazy til 07:45 at 8:45 we go buy food for breakfast at 9:45 we go out and work 11:00 coffe break til 11:45. Lunch at 13:00-13:45 Go home at 15:00 Now the rest of us if we decide to leave an hour and a half early we still write 8 hours. We like to go home at 2 PM on fridays. We are probably the text book example of lazy construction workers But despite that we are still 8 days ahead of the working schedule making our boss commend us and he even decided to pay us an extra $5 an hour (yeah I know not much at $50 an hour but still) and the way we see it as long as we are geting the work done then let things be as they are because everyone is happy. Now this guy Snitch decided he didnt like our work hours and so he decided to start writing up our work hours and sending them to the boss with a note that we arent following our work hours. he cant just mind his own business and work on like the rest of us. between us we couldnt care less how much the other guy works and how much he writes dowm that he works because we get paid per hour and not for the work done (thats another system used in certain places) He has done this 3 times now and to add to that he is complaining about nobody wanting to work with him anymore and to save him from retrobution from us, a lower level boss just told us that it was one of the construction bosses in charge of the area that had called him and said we didnt follow our hours but really. If the construction boss wasnt happy with our hours he would walk in to the barrack on one of our breaks and tell us to get things straight and stop wasting time and he certainly wouldnt send an anonymous call to our boss and after asking the snitch if it was really him he happily replied "yeah". So what do you think of this situation? Is it ok to be lazy if you are following the time schedule or should we allways work exactly 8 hours and never charge for hours we didnt work? Personaly I bellive the schedule is what matters. x task should be accomplished by x date and for this the customer pays the company a sum and the boss has estimated it will take us 10 days and also charged the customer for 10 days of us working then if we do it in 8 days working less hours then did we not earn 10 days work of payment?
