Hi. I just started a job as a patient care advocate in a call center. Working overtime on the weekends. Worked 60 hours OT last month thinking I would make extra money. I made $1700 for 2 weeks but only got to take home $810. (Higher tax bracked). Part of the job is to have my every move recorded, including going to the bathroom, which is timed. I get 2 15-minute breaks and one 1/2 hour break. Not used to being watched every second. Schedule adherence is mandatory. So is the handle time of every call. I have terrible handle time. Should I set a timer to try and limit my calls? I use the timer for my breaks. Good time management tool. People think the timer is strange but it does help. Any advice on how to manage my time better? Could use some advice.

One of those platitudes you often hear in response to 'how are you doing?' is "I'm on this side of the grave, so it's all good...". Me, tired of that reply will start asking: "How do you know for sure it's not better on the other side (of this bull-shit)...?"
