Today will be my last day at the office, they've shut it down completely because someone managed to trip the panic alarm and get the cops called yesterday with all of 6 people in the building.
Was super tight having the cops roll up on me as I was finishing taking my post-lunch poop.
Going in? No.
I work in sales for a software company. I worked remotely for almost 6 years prior to this year.
This is nothing new and we are working as normal. Some of the things our company sells are helpful to the customers as it encourages less human contact so in some cases we are busy. Others, our customers are focused on their operations during this event.
Same hours, working from home, no travel.
My job is to fly to different places every few days and lay off veterans from their jobs. I will not be working remotely because you just don’t get the same thrill/satisfaction when you’re not in the room
- Same hours
- Will be WFH a few days a week starting tomorrow
- create bills of material, and run jobs for our machine shop
- will literally be on the couch watching TV most of the time
Structural Engineer, office still open so working as normal. Due to where I was world wise on some projects I’ve worked more the last two weeks then I had all year. At the moment I don’t see things slowing down.
Golf Assistant Superintendent getting ready to ramp up hours and get seasonal employees back in work. Overwhelming sense of dread and anxiety. Was just in a meeting with my supervisors talking about really buckling down and enforcing Social Distancing and I just had am employee take a piss and not wash his hands. It was nice knowing you guys
Account Manager for a Landscape Comtracting company. Not much has changed for me. Same hours as usual. Business is being affected a little bit by the resorts that we manage closing down during all of this.
Things are supposed be ramping up with Spring right around the corner but who knows how that’s gonna go now
Same hours. Biomed(I repair/maintain X-ray equipment)
Assistant manager at a small brewery. Two locations but we have one open. Hours went from 37ish a week to 12. Making way less in tips with to go fills too. Things are fine, this is fine.
Hello yes I have not left my house for months.
What do you do? And where?
I sell propane and propane accessories.
Slightly less hours and sent almost everyone else to work from home doing training or whatever we can find for them.
What are you a cop?
Manage a bank...I’m here.
Mainly do lending & our lobby is closed. Just sitting alone in my office all day, everyday
I’m working remotely but all of our training classes were cancelled for the next two weeks. We’ll probably ramp those back up after that because we provide certifications that many need that work in the essential industries. If people let those certifications lapse then they can’t work so we can only put it off for so long.
Electrical Engineer, and same
slightly lower office hours but a lot more total hours. Home Healthcare admin
I'm picturing you looking like Tom Hanks in Cast Away
Still working out of the office. 7 of us in the Sales office, we all have our own office so social distancing is not an issue.
Account Executive for Promotional Products and Apparel Company. Things are a little slow and am not out making cold calls or even dropping in on existing customers right now. Just staying in touch with customers and prospects through email with follow up and sending out different ideas.
We have production and shipping/receiving/art staff of 10 downstairs. For the most part they can keep distance from each other and are still working and hopefully we can write enough business to keep them busy as we farm out as little as possible.
I am in North Dakota. State has tested about 1500 people with 34 testing positive and 5 now hospitalized.
I live in Fargo which is the most populated area of the state(245,000) and our county has had 1 positive test which is strange but they are waiting on results from 270 tests.
Eng. Mgr. Working half days in the office and half at home for past week and will continue to do so until production stops. At which point I will shift to only working from home. We have taken some steps to be categorized as an essential business, even so, I'm not sure how much longer we will have work with most of our clients shut down.
It's not the beard I mind. I need a fucking haircut though 13/10 bad.
Been in the office, same hours, just more spread out than normal. Someone in our office tested positive this morning though so they are quickly setting everyone up for remote.
IT admin. Same hours as before, still in the office full time. Probably going to work more hours in the near future when most of our technologically challenged people start working from home and shit themselves as I utter the phrase “make sure your vpn is running.”
Operations Manager at a trucking company.
I'm keeping your asses wiped and your dogs fed.
Our D-Day was yesterday. Normal call volume is 140ish for a Monday. We hit 180 by 9:30, we were at 608 when I said fuck it and left at 3:00. The reckoning is real.
Still here (Food manufacturing).
Much longer hours (I put in 70+ hours last week) as I cut most of our office staff and have them working from home. I am also stepping out onto the production floor (which I hate doing) to help with increased demand and to not burn out our workers.
Its all hands on deck for the foreseeable future.
Same hours. Same job. Less customers.
opposite schedule w boss/other employees. So half days. Not bad.
Work in IT Management for a major, urban healthcare system. Pretty quiet except for the constant urgent escalations, three times daily command center conference calls and urgent projects with daily status calls. I made/received 114 calls yesterday - 30-40 on average day. Working 7 days per week now, though weekends haven't been too busy (couple hours a day).
That’s impossible. Trump said yesterday that we’ve learned about things. We’ve learned about washing our hands and other things.
Been wfh the last week and a half, but busier than ever. Been in zoom calls every day. Worked till 3 am last night. I enjoy not having to go into the office, but home has become the office and it can be difficult to really disconnect from work. We’ll be working at home for at least the next 3 weeks, but likely longer so we’ll see how this goes
Hi friends, still going to work, too. CEO just sent out an email yesterday that office attendance is optional, but everyone is still in office
Oil & gas stuff
Love gangstering has slowed down but space cowboying has picked up. All in All it has averaged out.
Same hours. Manage a furniture company. Won’t close unless govt. mandate, but they do call us daily to ask us if we are cleaning. As if there are any customers to clean after.
What do you do? The state has imposed business restrictions.
I drive a heavy loader for an online auto auction. We’ve been deemed essential.
