I guess my number one objection to Kronos is that it's insulting.

Years ago I used to work in a factory. I punched a timeclock there. And with all due respect to my good fellow workers on the production line, I hated it.

That's why I went back to school and got my graduate degree: to better my lot in life. To me, one of the markers of my success is that I don't have to punch a timeclock.

In other words, I'm too proud for this sytem.

A new year, and a new policy is in effect at my workplace.

In accordance with the new policy, and with much trepidation and many misgivings on my part, I have just logged in to the Kronos Timekeeping System for the first time.

It's kind of like a punch clock. I just pick up the phone, dial a few numbers, and *beep* I've just punched in. I'm supposed to punch out when I go home. And I'm supposed to punch out for lunch.

I don't like the idea of this system. So I thought I would keep a Web log of my experiences using Kronos and my thoughts on the subject.
