Hi, so This is my first FT job but I have a 6 months contract as a trainee in the social media field, it being my first full time job in that field (i did a ton of part time but not related, ex:F&B, retail)
Im paid ~2k for a 6month traineeship contract and this month would be my last, im the only social media person in there since the company is still in its early stage for social media presence wise (but they have been around for 18 years) my boss wanted me to stay but once i convert to FT my pay would still stay the same but with CPF therefore my pay is sort of cut.
my boss also wants me to take more initiative as well if i convert to FT, is this fair or is this the route i have to take because I just started in the working industry.
that being said, i have to admit my job is pretty chill (as in i don’t have to rush much deadlines all the time and i work independently), but my boss is sort of old fashioned , micromanages and likes seeing her employees OT and telling me to do stuff 5 mins before i end work (i overheard her meeting w others that she don’t think staff should complain about OT-ing and don’t think they should get time off for coming in early at times for work).
tbh i don’t enjoy the old fashioned way of working like needing to OT on purpose to show that i’m doing work, or actively working out of my job scope.
so please is this smt I should start to understand or endure or is this job culture bad
