I used to love working here, but lately it has turned into a never ending work-sleep-work-sleep pattern that I can’t seem to escape. Being in (lower) management it’s become difficult to maintain any kind of balance outside of work.
Very long hours with six day weeks are the norm. No matter what, Goodyear comes first. Being called to come in seven days a week at any given moment is nothing out of the ordinary, because your skills might be needed. So if we are short staffed, I’m screwed.
Workload can get really overwhelming and some of the time it’s necessary to hit the ground running with little to no time to take a breath. Days off have become as rare as legitimate UFO sightings. I’m not the only one getting seriously burned out by this. Not sure for how much longer I can take it.
