Dear Mark/Mike and/or anyone else who wants to chime in,
In the "First Job Fundamentals" series, there is a cast on having a positive attitude at work. One of the ways it is mentioned is to come in early and stay late. Mark mentioned that at minimum one must be working at the designated start time (so coffee, restroom, planning should all be taken care of) and so one should be in around 20 minutes prior to their actual start time. Mike then chimed in that if one wants to get ahead, then he or she should be getting in even earlier.
How would you handle a workplace where there is no set start point but rather a window. The earliest guy gets in around 6:20-6:30 AM. Front line supervisors who run union crews get in at 6:30. Managers pop in between 7:00 and 7:30 AM. Others come in at 7, some 7:15 and some as late as 7:45 to 8. Our department has never institutionalized a set starting point (and likewise not a set quitting time). What would you recommend in this situation?
Thanks in advance!
