I do feel like my own boss at times. But technically I am not. I am not under any of the production (floor) supervisors. My boss is the Director of Operations, who is over all of the production supervisors. But generally, I handle all of my own work, I make my own decisions when it comes to development. I have a lot of freedom and I really enjoy that. My work gets done when it's supposed to be done and I make sure of that. So in my spare time I'm hanging around CP and Facebook, waiting for my next task.

I told my boss on Monday that I had nothing to do at the moment. He looked at a list of tasks he has for me. But he said, "I'm looking at this list and the current list of tasks are waiting on other people before I can assign them to you." I told him, "that's a small problem I have, I don't pace myself; I finish my work too quickly." Apparently that is a "good 'problem' to have", according to him. Haha. That's fine by me! I try and be productive in my slow times. I'm always researching and experimenting with new technologies and such, in order to improve my value as a developer. I'm pretty much carrying the entire PC Refurb department.

As far as my lunch/breaks, I take them with the production team closest to the office (right outside the office). For holidays, unless the entire facility is closed (e.g. Memorial Day), I am still required to fill out a sheet for "optional holiday." No problem though. Smile | :)
djj55: Nice but may have a permission problem
Pete O'Hanlon: He has my permission to run it.
