Okay. Yesterday was pretty bad. It sucks to work in retail. Since the holidays are over the store wants to "recooperate" and save money so, they cut many of the seasonal workers and they're reducing everyone else's hours. Of course the specialists and the team leaders are guaranteed at least 32hrs. a week, but it's hard for us to do our own jobs and our workers' jobs!
I need at least two workers in the morning and another one to come in the early afternoon, that doesn't even include my cake decorators. How the fuck am I supposed to manage the bakery (I work at a Super Target) with only one worker? Yesterday an executive got upset with me because she asked me if I could make some pies for an end-cap and I told her that I would try. The trick got upset and in a demanding tone she told me, "I need you to make some pies for this end-cap." I just continued to do what I was doing. My worker felt bad for me and decided to fix the end-cap so it wouldn't look so empty. That really upset me, this exec. has never spoken to me like that. She must've had a bad day.
I never did those pies either...hell, I didn't even finish my own
Yeah, the pies are my responsibility, but I'm supposed to make sure one of my workers do it, I wasn't about to ask my only worker to make some pies when she had several food items to wrap and put out and she had to do some work that involves going into the freezer (the same place where I hurt my back), and she's probably in her 60s or 70s! She's damn good, but I wasn't going to make her do all
of that shit.
Yesterday, I also had to finish what I was supposed to finish the day before. I'm behind because I have to do two
jobs. Bah! I told my exec. about this working for two people shit and he made it seem as if he's not gonna do anything
about it! It's your fuckin' bakery, you bitch! Do something or else you'll be short of a baker!
They expect us to be superhuman, I mean, yeah, some of us are pretty damn close, but give us a break! I went to bed with bad thoughts about this job, I even woke up from my sleep because a horrible thought seeped into my mind. I began to cry and I had tremors. Today, I'm off and I'm contemplating putting in my two-weeks notice tomorrow when I go back to work. My team leader should come in the morning and I will be alone with her...good. We're gonna have to talk about this.
I did plan on staying another year and a half, and then I thought about staying another 2 or 3mos. Bump that, I may stay only 2-3weeks. There's a nearby company that's hiring...I'll go check them out.
