Should I ask my boss for a different position? Whats a good time?

Ive worked as a custodian for 6 years now, longer than I had planned. The pay is good, better than the average custodian makes, I work for a school district. Hours suck since I have kids, I dont see them hardly except on the weekends. We have a new boss as of last year almost 2 years and has been an ass lately sorry to say. I respect him but I am an anxious wreck around him or even to talk to him. Ever since he took over after our last boss retired he's been hiring people who he knows, doesn't give much for promotion or seniority and tends to be biased at times. The led custodian for a position had passed away and he pulled in a guy who was a sub and stuck him in that post. Its a 6 to 2 and I have the 2 to 11 shift. Its now a year since and the guy he put into the post got canned. I did let my boss know last year that if it didn't work out with this guy that I will be more than willing to take over with a 110 percent work ethic and performance. He told me ok and he'd consider it but because I had an injured shoulder and I was put on leave that he had to go with the other guy supposedly. But this past year he'd been cherry picking on my performance and I didn't pass my first work evaluation. I've since been more consistent with my work and made improvements, although the school Principle or my immediate supervisor would say other wise since he/she is not happy with anything it seems, no matter how good a job we do. My boss has been very moody lately since school year is about to start I assume. The 6 to 2pm post is open I think cause there hasn't been much talk about it being filled yet. Should I even bother to ask if I can be considered for it? Should I email or text my boss? Do you think he even remembers me throwing it out there that I will fill that position if the guy doesn't pan out? Ive tried to find a good time to talk to him in person but hes ether too busy with others or in a bad mood. I was told Supposedly depends on our Lead custodian on how they feel about me but then again, this last guy totally bombed from what I heard.

My Hiatus + Lifestyle Changes

Hello Jobcasers…

Long time no interaction. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the community, and I wanted to share a (minor) status update with those of you that were kind enough to not only wonder but worry or ask about me. I am currently going through major lifestyle changes which has taken my focus away from Jobcase for the time being. This has been long overdue but also something that needs to happen at this point and time in my life as a result of improving my overall lifestyle.

I’m working on changing my present so that I’m not affected by what the future could hold or present me with. This includes the unexpected. And like anything else, this takes time. Time to focus, time to improve, time to grow, time to invest, time to embrace and adapt to the many overwhelming changes. Time to take time. Adulting is never easy. It isn’t meant to be but it’s all about you first recognizing that something either should or needs to change and then working to actually change it. No excuses. The work is in the effort and there is beauty in that effort. Nothing worth having comes easy in life, but if you’re determined and focused on seeing it through then it’s all worth it in the end.

Bella, Cisco and I are okay but I’ve been away from my animals and it’s the hardest. I feel naked without them around but they are safe and well cared for during my absence, and that’s what’s important. We will be together again in due time. I’ve been extremely busy overseeing many things that need my attention. And for those of you that have contacted (or contact) me via Jobcase message or personal email, know that my responses will typically be returned but might also be delayed. I will eventually share the what, when, where, why, and who’s later, which I strongly believe that others within the community could learn from my experience(s). More importantly, I think this could help others that feel they need that push, that encouragement, that voice of reason to want to make changes for self and life improvement.

I am working on a lot, both personally and professionally, but I will return to Jobcase once the dust has settled.

Au Revoir.
