Have you ever been working a regular shift for the same employer and then had to switch to a new one and a whole new set of problems to deal with? What if you are one of those lucky ones who got a twelve hour shift with just one minor issue that was resolved at the last minute and your shift was completed? What if your shift ended up being a lot longer than you wanted it to be because of a problem?
If this happened to you, then you know how frustrating it can be to have a problem to deal with only to find that it is going to be the last problem that you will have to deal with during your shift. If this is how it feels to have a problem and not have a solution, then you will be grateful that you were able to get a twelve-hour shift with just one problem.
There are several different types of problems that can arise on any type of shift. These include things like a broken door, a fire in the kitchen, an accident in the car park, equipment breakdown or just plain bad luck. In most cases, you will only need to find out what type of problem your employer has and solve it before your shift is over so that you don't have to start all over again.
One of the best solutions to finding out what kind of problem has occurred is to call your shift manager. This will give you a chance to explain exactly what is happening. They may be able to tell you which part of the building needs to be checked and what time would be a good time to do it. If this is done correctly, then the problem can be fixed and your shift will finish as scheduled.
If the problem cannot be fixed at the end of your shift, then it is often possible to get a short extension to ensure that your problem does not happen again. These extensions are usually short but can often be granted by the employer so that the problem can be fixed.
Of course, some problems cannot be solved during the term of your shift and there are times when you may have to leave the office. If this happens, you may need to find a way to extend the amount of time that you are in the building. It is always better to find a way to extend the time that you are in the building than to end up having to wait around for someone to come to fix your problem.
