...break time dilemna.

January 14, 2013 6:02pm CST
I am training under one company and we communicate via skype and a time-measuring app to make sure that i am working within acceptable hours. It's fine by me. However, since there are times we had a break time initiated by by boss. Of course, I am supposed to wait for him until he gets back into his skype and tell me what to do. And I don't stop the clock on the software that measures my work time since I consider it still part of work. However, there are times when I am simply got tired of waiting, went into the same break and come back again. Ids it fair that I use teh official clock for waiting for him to come back from his break?

IF only your boss leaves and you stay, you dont need to stop But if you get tired of wait and leave too some moments, you should stop the clock because you arenĀ“t really working, and you are doing a break

Well, that was I was doing. My boss usually gives some tasks and sometimes I fish them before he comes back. Which is good for me because I create I guess a good impression. But sometimes, he goes for a long time and I am simply too bored to weight

This is a question to ask your boss. Do you clock the time that you spend waiting? Is there any work you can do while waiting? I think this is something you need to clarify with your boss.
