I try to follow rules as much as possible. There was a time that I needed to have lesson plans completed before Monday morning, in my opinion I thought my position was more intricate. I asked for a modified expectation for planning, but was not offered that. The company policy was to have those plans defined and turned into the principal.

Second Best

I've never disliked company rules because you are there to do what the company wants. Now if it is something that would be dishonest or something of that nature then that would be a diffenent story. I would have to go to a superviser that was higer than the person telling me .

3.

This is my first job. However, I would think that a compny must have good reasons to enforce rules for their employees that are in the best interest of their customers. Sometimes we don't alwasy like rules - but we should obey them.

This is my first real job, but I usually always follow rules because they are there for a reason, to keep people safe and on track.
