How to survive financial crisis if you working on a Call Center?

Most of the call center now a days locker and a Bedroom or Nap room are available with in the office building. Recreation areas are added as well for there employees to enjoy while waiting for there shift or while on break. If your lucky showers with free soaps and shampoo are provided by the company as well.

As we all know being a call center representative the salary is not that bad nor not that good. I gonna give some tips on how can you save money and you'll be able to spend a lot of time on sleeping. I promised this you'll be able to save money from riding a taxi twice a day multiple by the number of days you'll be working. Another advantage you'll make of use of those facilities and equipment that your company provides.

I got this Idea from two of my office mates then I sum up all ideas into one.
Lets begin, lets say your shift would start at 11:00pm. we all know that this is one of the most dangerous scheduled for a person. Lazy boy would visit you if your still in bed around 8:00pm and a big chance that you'll fall asleep again. Using you alarm clock or cell phone to Buzz you around 10:00pm before work. Around 70% of the people using this Alarm system to wake you up wont work. So there will be a big chance you'll ride a taxi instead.
Another situation, same shift 11:00pm, 100% sure you'll gonna leave your house by 10:00pm. Now, a problem on transportation would be the challenge here. No traffic but the number of public vehicles would travel on that time are minimal, Once again you'll be tempted to hail a taxi.
Solution for this, I would suggest try to go to office as early as possible. Let say 5:00pm then proceed to the bedroom of your office. Then call or inform your office mate to wake you up before the shift will start. In that case You'll be saving a lot of money based on the transportation alone. Get my point???

Now for sleeping issue this is for those early shift not Grave yard. This wouldn't save your money but it will save your time and spend more hour or two on sleeping than having a problem traveling to and from your house. Most of agents or any employee working on a BPO industry, sleeping is one of our luxury(as well as food ahehehe). Considering the fact that your sleeping on a Air-con compared to a ceiling fan.

This next situation is advantage for those having problem on a long travel from work to house.
Important thing POT of gold awaits for your savings. Locker and shower room are available for some companies. Now make use of those stuff, 1st try to pack your things good for 3 or 5 days. Day 1 set all things to your locker, proceed to your shift just like normal. After your shift, take your meal then to the Internet room or invite your friends to visit recreation area then after straight to the bedroom or nap room. Sleep up to sawa, an hour or two before shift stand up then go directly to the shower room. We'll what else take bath with out unnecessary choirs. Take your meal WALAHHH!! your all set for work.

Simple yet drastic, Some of my co-workers are already doing it. Even I'm planning to do the same as well. . . .
Any ways, need to pack my things now. Hope I was able to give some Idea and helpful tip. I know its way to corny but if you'll think of it for Reality based. It will work, try to compare your daily expenses and multiple it by the number of days you'll be working.

"Love your job!"
If this would be your motto, only 1 percent you will be late and this would be "emergency".... traffic, over-sleep, etc are not options but stupidity..... whatever job you have, take it seriously & enthusiastically... no time for laziness but time to think why you need to work.. sorry to say but its bullshit to come late at work due for some dumb shit reasons... got'it?!
