A couple of weeks ago, the last of our original payroll staff put in her two weeks’ notice.
This particular payroll girl is the one that did over 50% of the payroll work. The boss hired one new person to replace her, then finally realized that one person wasn’t enough and has now rearranged the staff. Sparky, who used to be our receptionist/office administrator, is now doing payroll. The new girl that I was training has taken over Sparky’s old job. (But I still have to train her so she can help out when things get busy.)
Sparky and the payroll girl who is leaving do not get along. The payroll girl has told our boss that she will not be training Sparky, or have anything to do with preparing her for her new role. So Sparky is left to swim on her own with a very basic knowledge of payroll, and zero knowledge of the various specific tweaks that each individual client wants.
Long story short, now I’m training Sparky, too. Someone get me the hell out of here.
