Answered

Report answer

Nope. If you don't get the shifts you need to trade with other advisors. You only get accommodation to a shift if you have kids, go to school or are sick/disabled.

No, the scheduling is a joke. They moved to a 3 month schedule for the advisors which is severely unpopular for a number of reasons. As for the Team Leaders, they have switched the schedule so that every one now has three weeks of day shift followed by three weeks of nights. Not every one got a say in this but they went ahead with it anyway. This 3 week rolling provides major issues for coaching and supporting one's team as half of the team could finish at 4:30 when the team leader is getting in at 3:30pm. If the team leader spends 3 weeks like this out of any given month, they will not meet mandate, not be able to coach back SMARTS, not be able to coach back CSATS effectively, or really do much coaching at all for the day staff. There is also MINIMAL Team Leader coverage on the weekends which opens it up to AUX abuse by the advisors creating a loss of revenue, productivity, utilization and much more.
