This week, starting with the previous weekend, is Hell Week at work. I'm really hoping that it doesn't turn into Hell Week Part II next week. In fact, I bet we'll make the local news. People will probably shy away from applying to work with us.
Oh, let's see--the short story is, the bank I'm working for split, part of it being bought out by another bank. Then, the remaining part of the bank, where I work, bought out another bank, so now we are changing our name (which is legally necessary), and getting a whole new computer system. It's. been. hell. Absolutely everything's buggy, people can't see their accounts online, some people's debit/check cards are being denied for no good reason, we can't even print out statements. The phones are ringing ALL DAY. At one point, all our computers were frozen, in all branches. Synchronicity. The IT department has been taking hours to get back to us with any answers. Many of us tellers have been giving customers make-shift receipts for their transactions, since the printers aren't even functioning properly.
Do I feel sorry for IT? Yes. Yes, I do. And yet. We're the ones who have to use this....system. Oi
