This is my first time working in Singapore, so I am living in company housing that is funded for by them until I get my apartment.
However, for a week, I’ve had to live with some of my male coworkers because of training that was outside of my control. Not like I’m arguing that, after all, the housing is free.
Anyhow, I worked my first two nights and didn’t quite make it to the end of the first night. My male coworker told me the next day when I came back into the apartment. I found it creepy that he knew exactly what time I came in because he was up preparing for working his shifts too (the same as mine, just on a different rotation of people.)
I told my shift mates about this the next day and they joked about me having a stalker and found it a little odd. I, being a wise-ass, said there’s a reason I lock the door at night to my bedroom to not alert them to my internal dilemma.
I told my family about this and they said maybe I woke him up or something like that. Not sure of Singapore culture would it be alright if I bring this up to the person in charge of housing or my boss?
I actually really like what I’m doing, despite it not being my dream job, and I’m getting paid better than a lot of other people in the office (5 figures).
I also feel like there’s a better way of figuring that out, maybe by asking how my shift went instead? Or even how work went?
I haven’t filed an HR complaint yet, I’m just thinking about it.
