It's so hard to say no when you're a new employee and want to be a team player
aadams
37:40
Ask if there is a projected timeframe that the position would be filled?
will.szwagiel
37:51
I would have likely said "yes" even though I did not particularly want to.
Abby Moore
38:25
I would look at it as an opportunity and do it
LaShaunda Rogers
38:51
"Grin and bear it", try to make it an opportunity for professional growth.
Katherine Barr
38:53
@aadams I agree - would ask how long it would be until the position would be filled. If indefinite, I'd see if I could job share the responsibility.
Christina (she, her) Dooley
38:57
Look at it as a great opportunity. Renegotiate salary - probably a few weeks later lol!
Shi Odom
39:05
It's hard to say no, especially if you are in a probation period
Gracie
39:53
Get everything in writing- time limit, extra pay, etc
Scott
40:33
not every boss is willing to put everything in writing

41:01
I think, for me personally, there would also be a fear of potentially "burning bridges" if I declined or even considered asking for a better salary.
Scott
42:18
Having a good solution to offer helps in that they can take that to stakeholders to make the changes needed
Meg

I have a 9yo...BigHero 6 is part of the regular movie rotation

Oh yeah we've had this happen more than once
Angela C
01:08:44
Librarians are the: janitors, therapist, and security! We do it all the above? with a smile of course.
Christina (she, her) Dooley
01:09:06
@Angela C, Truth!
barbv
01:10:01
Yep - we wear many hats and sometimes aprons.
Christina (she, her) Dooley
01:10:05
Add Office Assistant, Copier repair person,.. LOL!! But I wouldn't change it!!
Angela C
01:10:40
exactly!!
Meg
01:14:03
Do you find this push back usually comes from one direction or has your experience been evenly distributed?
Meg
01:14:20
I have one person in particular...
ellen childress

We are battling our 35 yr circ manager right now because our service points and services are so different and he is not flexible. He was overheard saying He is the expert bc he has been doing h s job for 35 years so don't tell him what to do.
Christina (she, her) Dooley
