I picked up a seasonal job to make ends meet during the winter, but I don’t think I’m going to end up keeping it for long. Where I live it gets brutally cold, and the winter season lasts for as long as eight months. This means my utility bills are incredibly high and I have to put up with them for over half of the year. In order to afford it, I’m always picking up extra seasonal jobs in the winter to make ends meet. So this time, I picked up a job helping ship orders at a warehouse for a massive online company. I thought this job would be a super easy and simple way to pay for those higher winter bills. However, the warehouse is tougher than I thought. This is because the building is not heated at all. I had thought a company as big as this would have at least some kind of HVAC system, if not for the comfort of their employees, at least to keep the products safe. However, on the first day it was so cold I used my fifteen minute break to go out to my car and have coffee in there to warm up. Plus when I got off my break, I took my gloves and coat with me. This was the only way I could get my work done, while staying warm with the lack of heating and cooling. I asked our shift boss what the deal was with the HVAC. He said that this is a warehouse, not an office building, and if I wanted to get paid I’d better get used to it.
