Shift Leaders 1 & 2 are quickly approaching the level of Shit Leader. Take break, for example. We are allowed a 15 minute break, then a 30 minute lunch, followed by a 15 minute break. Shift Leader 1 is particular about this. If you are even a minute late, ONE SINGLE MINUTE, it comes off your last break.
‘Oh, quit whining! Just be back up on time and get over it!’ might be what some of you think upon reading this. Normally, I’d say the same thing. However, if you get back up at the correct time, but the clock changes before you’re behind your register, YOU’RE LATE! Doesn’t matter if you’re on the floor and are helping a customer, you’re still considered LATE by Shift Leader 1.
This, coming from the woman who will take a 30 minute break, then an hour lunch, followed by a 30 minute break. She is allowed the same time as the rest of us. Just because she’s my Shift Leader, doesn’t mean the Manager lets her get away with this shit.
But shit has hit the fan from what I understand. I took Foofy Sparklepants around today and we hung out because it’s our day off together. I bought a DVD set for her that she wanted (They always end up paying me back and are good about it, so whatevs) and she went home to watch it. As I was asking her on Facebook what she thought of it, she drops this gem on me:
Foofy: Have you talked to Stumpy?
Terah: No. Don’t have my phone. What’s up?
Foofy: Crap hit the fan. Shift Leader 1 made her clock out early and go home.
Foofy: Because she wasn’t able to stock the shelves because she was in the window and had a crap load of customers, and for calling me right before lunch to ask me to bring her something.
Terah: Okay, this is bullshit. She is getting as bad as Shit Leader was. Tell the Manager. Get to work before them and tell the Manager! Why the hell would this happen?
Foofy: Because the Manager took them both into the office and screamed at them. Someone snitched to the manager about how bad they’ve been treating us, so she looked on the cameras and got proof of it. According to Stumpy who heard the yelling, the Manager accused them of being the reason that everyone calls our shift the lazy shift, because we do all the work with absolutely no help.
So, RHU, it looks like that after getting yelled at for treating us like shit, the first thing Shift Leader 1 does is treat us WORSE. I saw one power-hungry tyrant leave, I’m wondering if I’ll see two more. I’m considering just saying ‘To hell with it’ on my good insurance and finding another job.
