Desktop support pilot fish gets a week's notice from this manager: Several of her employees will be changing desks, and they'll need to be set up in their new spots overnight.
"The night before the move, the manager lets her selected few employees know to gather all their belongings because they won't be at the same desk in the morning," says fish.
"I arrive at work early to start the desk relocation process, and get all the employees' computer equipment moved to their new location before they arrive for the day. I also verify that all PCs, monitors and phones function correctly.
"Manager calls me up and says that one employee's computer isn't working, or even turning on. I go right up to check on it.
