Re: Keep it Simple
@Broadway - can you imagine? This incident has happened to other folks I have heard and it seems to take place soon after you were hired, so my guess is they are trying to put the fear of God in you so you walk the line.
Now, I work in California where the employee-rights laws are very strict and HR needs to ensure that the time we submit in our "time sheets" (can you say archaic much?) matches the time we actually work. This is a concept that belongs in the stone age. Should I subtract the minutes I daydream from my "time sheet?" Can you monitor that? (One day...probably).
I had the HR Assistant say to us once, "Anytime you buy something on Amazon, etc, that counts as part of your breaktime." I mean, come on now, I buy most everything on Amazon faster than you can say "Jack Robinson." It's inane to me that someone would think that is part of taking a break when you are a white-collar information worker.
