Last summer season, I worked a temporary job while I was out of school. I wanted to save some money to pay our bills during the year, so I figured it would be worth our time to find a nice brief gig. The job I found required me to work at a call center where I answered calls from customers. The job wasn’t hard, and the pay was fair. However, there was a single thing that made the experience intolerable: The a/c in the building hardly worked! Most of the time, nothing but hot air would blow through the vents, and I would be dripping with sweat while trying to get the job done. It was more than I could handle, and every afternoon, I would come home totally exhausted from sweating out all day. After working there for three weeks, I asked the office manager if the company would be fixing the air conditioning anytime soon, to which he told me that they didn’t have the money to do it at the moment. So, for about two weeks, I stuck it out in the heat before calling it quits. I worked the rest of the summer as a waiter at a diner. Sure, I was on my feet all afternoon, but I didn’t mind because I was working in a building that had a reliable a/c. I don’t think that it’s okay for companies to force their employees to work in uncomfortable conditions! Maybe I will make sure the a/c works well before applying to any other jobs in the future.
