I started working for a small company last year, I have been here for just over 8 months now.
When I started the work was never overly busy however it was steady, since January this year the company has been at a stand still and my workload has gone down to about 2 hours a day (I work 8 hours).
What makes it worse is my whole team has left because they had nothing to do and my boss is always out of the office so I am bored and lonely but also feel like I should be loyal.
I am thinking about asking my boss to drop my hours down and my salary as I can afford to take a small cut, I think this would help with how it is making me feel mentally at the moment as the days just feel so long.
I have told my boss that I have no work and just get emails back with jobs that I already do as part of my day or silly little tasks which brings nothing to the company.
Has anyone been in this situation before and how the company react?
@Isleepinahedgefund I am currently looking at other jobs as well, it's just hard with trying to get the time off to interview. It definitely is torture, I am almost in tears to and from work everyday. Thank you for the advice.
