    I always pick my staff up if they rip themselves off (eg put down they were here for 30 mins instead of 45). First if all they are ripping themselves off. Secondly it's not accurate - who knows when the at may come back to bite you as a supervisor.

    I would like it if a staff member checked when they were here and submitted an accurate timesheet from the get go. That being said things happen and I really don't baulk if one correction is needed. If a second correction is needed I might get the ****s though. So when you said it was 50 mins and then revealed it was 48 I probably would have been thinking to myself "just put the right time on the timesheet and give it to me." I probably wouldn't have minded if you put 50 mins down - it's more the back and forth I would have been annoyed with.

    Hope that makes sense.

    How is your little man now? That would have been super Scarey as a parent.
    I agree with this. I'd get kinda annoyed if my staff couldn't complete their timesheet because they weren't sure when they arrived or left. I mean if they don't know not sure how I'd meant to know! I'd rather they just guessed and filled in their timesheet without having the back and forth.

    My workplace we round up to the nearest 15 mins...and our lunch break is paid, but may be interrupted by the phone etc. Love my job, if you look after staff productivity is so much better!!

    I get that too, except I did know my times in and out and I told her, it was more that I didn't want to take the **** by just assuming I would get paid for the time I was there. I was checking with her, and I was happy to be paid only for my 'productive' time, but then I was surprised and a bit annoyed when she got nit picky over 2 minutes... Hence why I ended up just leaving it blank and not being paid at all for the time I was productive.

    DS is 19mo and I'm not sure if I'd call him 'floppy'. He has hyper flexibility and he didn't walk until 18mo (he's been seeing a Physio too). His language development is also delayed. He's constantly sick and has laryngomalacia so he gets an awful cough with colds. His breathing often becomes laboured and we have spent lots of time sitting in the asthma bay at the children's hospital when he gets sick.

    Default Do you round your hours up or down?

    I have been temping for a company for the past 5-6 weeks and my normal hours are 9-5 with 30 mins lunch.

    So I've had a fair bit going on with all sorts of appointments for my kids, but they have been understanding and accommodating.

    I've worked my butt off learning the role and really trying my best to learn new things and help people out, I have made a big effort here.

    Anyway, last week I had a scare with my little one where the paed who did a check up was concerned about his floppiness and suggested we get a blood test to rule out muscular dystrophy. Needless to say I was stressed.

    Anyway I went into work at 9 as normal but DH decided to take DS for the blood test that morning as we just wanted answers. So I ended up having a bit of a stressed out cry at work and spoke to my manager who was fine with me leaving early.

    Anyway, Friday comes along and I didn't know what to put on my time sheet, I wanted to do the right thing and left that particular day blank with a post it note saying 'not sure what to put for Wednesday as was only here for around 50 mins'

    So she brought it back and says I didn't sign out so she doesn't know what time I left, so suggested I put around 30 mins. So I checked my phone as I had rung hubby shortly before I left to see if he was already on his way and that was at 9:48 so I told my manager and she says 'well that's not 50 minutes then, is it'

    I was honestly quite shocked. We are literally talking about TWO MINUTES here...

    I would never put more time than I worked, in fact, often I leave at 5:07 or 5:22 etc and I would round it to either 5, or 5:20.

    I never thought anyone would be so weird about 2 minutes...

    It literally works out to around 44 CENTS per minute...

    I was so annoyed and shocked that I just said, you know what, I can't be bothered, I'll leave Wednesday blank. So I lost out on around $13 just because I was so irritated that anyone could be so picky over 2 mins...

    Am I the weird one here?
    Sorry haven't read any replies. Firstly sorry to hear about your ds, fingers crossed all is ok.

    At our work if you leave or start 5 minutes early/late you get docked 15 minutes (finger scan). Yet funnily enough if you scan out late it doesn't swing the other way . Even if I scan in 5 minutes late for the shift and leave 5 minutes late you still get docked which pees me off no end.

    They work in 15 minute intervals so surprised they only would do 30 minutes as opposed to 45 minutes. It's the principal of the thing that hurts, they can use and a use you but god forbid they show you any leeway or common sense. It just makes me feel like a number with no consideration into individual circumstances or the fact I am a dedicated loyal employee who only does this once in a blue moon.

    Good luck with it all xxxx

    Eta: as we get docked 15 minutes many won't start 5 minutes late but will sit outside and smoke or play in their phone for the 15 minutes, as what's the point if you're not getting paid, letting the team down (every minute on the floor counts in our job) so I believe it's counter productive.

    Mind you it means hardly anyone is late, ever lol

    This is also the place I mentioned in a previous thread where people were asked where they were going and why they took so long if they went to the bathroom.
    I had a job like that. Worked in a call centre (complaints) so EVERYTHING was timed or monitored. No lie, I had to send an email to 3 separate people (my supervisor, work load manager and the boss of the contracting company I was employed by) when I went to the loo explaining that was the reason I wasn't logged in.

    An absolute nightmare of a job. I could go on for hours about the things they did/picked us up on/the conditions etc but then I'd be writing forever lol. I made 10 months and walked out one day mid shift and never came back. They didn't provide references either so I didn't care.
