DMV Employee in California Snoozed for 2,200 Hours on the Job — Outrageous!
Ever waited in line for what seemed like forever? Now you know why — and worker is still 'working'
Sure, people get sleepy from time to time during their workday, but this is beyond.
A worker at the California Department of Motor Vehicles apparently slept for three hours a day on the job for nearly four years — and her managers knew and did nothing about it.
The outrageous news comes from a state auditor’s report released Tuesday.
“And the employee still works there,” noted Fox News in its report about the case.
This particular individual — who has not been publicly identified — slept through roughly 2,200 hours of “work” between February 2014 and December 2017 — costing California taxpayers more than $40,000, the audit explained.
The employee’s job was to update address changes and new vehicle ownership forms.
But the auditor’s report said this worker managed to get through only 200 documents a day — while the typical data operator averages 560 documents a day.
Colleagues said her work was filled with errors.
Other workers then had “to pick up the slack, the audit found. [And] her colleagues said her work was filled with errors,” as Fox News pointed out.
The audit said the person’s managers were aware of the problems — but “failed to take disciplinary or medical action against the employee after initial efforts to address her conduct proved unsuccessful,” the audit said.
If you snooze, you … remain on the job?https://t.co/lx7LStPDUI

Nice work if you can get it! Report shows California DMV worker sleeps on the job for hours a day, it's been going on for years, and her supervisors know about it. She's slept through an estimated 2,200 hours of work. And she's still employed. #Fox35 https://t.co/93TgKz46Ce
