What should I do?

I’m unhappy at my current job. I’ve been there for 1 year. My benefits are just now starting, however I’ve been upset since a few months in. My office is a corporate and keeps adding on to hygiene. They’re cutting appointment times down. Hygiene does fiances/scheduling/cleans the office/&more. I’m overwhelmed as it is. Now they want to CHANGE my schedule to working Tuesday-Friday and every other Saturday. I did not sign on for Saturdays. It’s going to cut my hours from 40 to 31 one week and 36 the next with working more days than i currently am. It’s also not up for dispute. I’ve sent resume to many offices and recevied calls from many. I have interviews from a few and some are not hiring but want to “talk” and will hire within a few months and say I’m the one they’ll hire as their practice grows. What should I do? Should I just work everyday for corporate and not have a life? Am I being selfish for not wanting to change hours? I don’t want to burn bridges for new employers or my current. I feel like people within the corporate think I’m being selfish for not wanting to give them Tuesday-saturday. I’m 26 and wanting to start a family soon with a normal hygiene job.

It is always easier finding a job while you still have one. I would keep looking while you put up with the corporate office.
I have heard very little good about corporate dental offices, more about the money rather than patient care.
About Saturday’s, one of the reasons I chose dentistry as a career, albeit a small reason, was no weekends. Our lives outside of work are important, this is the only life we were given, I plan on living mine.

I agree with Sue. Continue with your current job until a new one comes along. It will be difficult but try to focus on the future and getting a job you will love and work for people who will respect you! Hang in there!
