As a professional I would be willing to do so on an occasional, emergency-based situation. May I ask you why in your company this is instead considered the norm? What do you think the root causes of this situation are? Is it because of lack of planning that you work an an emergency-basis on a constant basis or what else?".
Indeed she had a hard time to reply. She only could reply " I am just telling you what the reality here is: to answer these questions you should talk to upper management and I could see if anyone would be willing to book such meeting". I said "yes, please, I'd love to talk to one of them". And no need to say, they never called back.
