Now I've done my fair share of slacking in my time. Some I've gotten away with, some I haven't. I'm just a laid back guy in general. But the last couple of weeks have just been taking the piss. I work in a call centre and got promoted like 2 or 3 weeks ago. I can't even remember how many weeks. I think 3. And I haven't taken a single call since. I've been waiting for my team leader to sort out my logins, and for my training to be sorted out. So I've alternated between sitting next to guys and listening to their calls and watching what their going, and going to the Internet bay to slack off for the vast majority of my shifts. The most work that I've done is evaluations of tier 1 calls, where I listen to peoples calls and score them. People could be sacked based on my evaluations. Awesome. Its not even real work and something I wanted to do, and it just made slacking easier 'cause it looks like you're working, and then you can just disappear and do what ya like. But since Monday... man. I couldn't see my team leader anywhere, asked somebody, who said he'd be off till wedensday. Wedensday is here, and I still haven't seen him around. But yeah... since Monday I haven't even bothered with the pretense of watching how other guys are doing the job... I've solely been sitting in the Internet bay. You would think they would have some sort of provision for this. Like tracking how long you spend in the Internet bay. But no. Basically, they have this main desk where a few TLs and other suits can evaluate things... they just basically check everyone is using the right logins and stuff. So as long as you're logged in under the right code, I guess they just assume all is well. The Internet bay is way at the other end of the centre. Yesterday, I even decided to just leave the building for about an hour and got some chinese food. Today, I'm in the Internet bay listening to music, putting serious consideration into going home for a few hours. My experience says there is a 90% if not more of being able to do this safely and no one ever even knowing. But I don't quite have the balls. Since monday, I've been very paranoid. It feels like I have a bubble that prevents me from being noticed that could just burst at any moment. And then... FIRED!! So... i don't know... I'm getting payed more than I've ever been payed for the least amount of work.
