Let me start off by saying I love my job. It is part time, but it deals with animals (I am also in school so part time is all I can handle).
I work for an animal rescue and am an adoption coordinator. There are four of us at my rescue, two who work at the office (we work opposing days) and two that work from home. The ones that work at the office have actual set hours (this is me), but make the same per hour as those who work from home.
This was fine before as we all did the same job, they just worked from home. However, the rescue has decided to "merge" some positions meaning I and the other girl who work at the office are now taking over the data entry in one area (aka more work). They also decided to merge another position which has me having to "sign on" to work 6 hours prior to my shift to assign applications to myself AND the girls who work from home, which takes quite a bit of time. Basically, I HAVE to sign on or the other girls dont get work, plus I have to do all of their
The issue I am having is that well I do work more hours, I am still getting paid the same hourly for having way more responsibility now. Yes, there were days were I had "down time" at the office, so thats why they decided to give us all this other work, but I also feel that since I am responsible for so much more, that the two of us who work from the office should be making more than the girls at home who just sit back and wait for us to assign there stuff (which does take a long time and involve alot of work), plus be responsible for their data entry (which used to get done by a 5th person who was not an A.C.).
This is stressing me out quite a bit and I am not sure if I am just being crazy. Some days, I can barley fit it all in and have to stress since I need to do their part too. I did bring it up to my boss about doing their data entry, but she said she doesn't want "several people doing it since it would be hard to track errors" (as said, it was all done before by 1 person who was not an A.C.)
Opinions? (P.S. , I know I am lucky to be paid for what I do, but they are very determined to keep everything very business like and this just seems unfair).
