I was hoping to get a reading on my current job situation. Specifically if I will be getting more hours or a job in a different department at my company.
Have you asked the bosses for either of these things? If so, what was their response?
I have asked my current manager for more hours but he has to ask his manager again. His boss told him previously that there was not room in the budget for extra hours. Even though we are short staffed and my supervisors need the help.
I don't feel your situation is going to change unless you do something about it. I feel the bosses are quite content to let things stay as they are, ignoring the need for more staff or hours. Why indeed would they change things when everyone is doing the work even if they are pushed to their limits and stressed. Is anyone else prepared to make a stand - try getting your co-workers to come together or ask the union for help if you are in one.
