This tax season started early for me this year. I work with Jackson Hewitt and they love to work me to the bone. Right now, I’m working 8-hour shifts. And they are giving me 2-3 days off a week until the end of the month. But after that, I’ll be working 10-hour shifts and soon 12-hour shifts. With, might I add, hardly any days off. That’s right people, I’ll be working 7 days a week (and only Sunday’s are 1-5, a 4-hour shift). I’ll be getting tons of OT (over-time), but I won’t get to be home with the kiddos as much. Not to mention pumping will be very difficult for me.
I pump every few hours, usually around noon and 3 pm. But with the 12 hour shifts, I’ll have to do it noon, 3 pm, and possible 6 pm. If they will let me. And legally they have to, because I need to go home to pump. I can’t inside WalMart due to no place to go. This will definitely be one of my more fun tax seasons. Let’s see how this plays out.
(Also, forgot to say. When I was contemplating quitting, I ending up getting a $0.50 raise and a 1% increase on my bonus. Now I’m getting paid as a 4th year tax preparer and in charge of so much more!)
