I'm thinking outloud here because of not really haveing anyone to talk to about this outside the office ..So i'm posting here becaue i thinking out loud and need to just to get thing's off my chest right now Plus there has been some rumbleing ever since Xmas time over the way we do our business here in the office and they can not have comeplete oversite on the office and payroll output of this dept for them .. Plus a few of the socalled owner group has never liked the fact that when they had send somethere to help out ..They where beening sent back home because of them not getting the basic fact we work odd hour's because of the shipping time tables with the company there in La with the shipping companys have diff sailing time tables in and out of the port for ships bound for Hawaii... Plus alot of are just outright spys for the owner's who want us gone and replaced with there own people . Plus alot of them lived what i called the island time problem ..When we tell them to be at the office and ready to go at this hour they would show up a 90 mins to a three hour's later after the work was done or we still loading the container for shippment and need help when it was beening loaded .. They just stand there and go it not part of my job to help load the container ..I'm the person in charge of the whole thing and if i working the line to help load the container then you better have you butt on the line as i told one person who happened to be the one of the owner son who sent there to help .. Most of the group is happy with how we do our business and we keep the cost down in alot of areas of the shipping of supplies to the island ..The one guy who is the head of the whole group main sticking point is that when hot like it is now i take money out of pretty cash and buy water and ice and Gartorade powder and make up cooler full of the gatorade fpr them to drink dureing the loading of the container Plus most of the good comes in unpalletized and we palletized it and make it ready to loaded into the container .. Most of the guys we hired there know they get there 40.hour's a week but in odd hours with some days it 8 hours of work from 10pm at night to 7.am in the morning or it could be 5.am in the morning to 3.pm in the afternoon ..they know that they do not get paid for the socalled non working hours or overtime because it night or a weekend type work ..That was the main thing that was explained to them when they where hired to load the containers .. We will call you for work at this time and i do give them at least 12 hour's notice that we are going to be working ..Some days it normal 7.am to 3.pm work of getting the stuff loaded onto pallet's and ready for packing into the container when it comes to the dock for shipping .. Plus the one owner who the leader of them who wants to get rid of us want's the list of my people who i deal with inside the company and i told no and the reason was over it the list is made up of personal friends who i have done business with for buying of my own supplies for the cabin . He been trying to talk to the people who i did business with and they go ok i can get it for you but not at that price here is the price i can get the product for and that mad as heck over that . .. They are finding out that they have cut there own throat in that area because of the saveing i was getting from the wholesale's that i knew on alot of the product's that they wanted .. So right now it a wait and see if we are gone by the end of aug plus of the people in the group are going if they let you go will do it part time for me as a flavor to me and i help you out to .
