On the ‘Friday’ of my last work week (even though it was a Monday, thats what we call it where I work), I was called into the managers office.
The last time it happened, it was because I needed a ‘talking to’- not quite a write up, but it could lead to one- so I was kinda freaked out. Turns out the manager for my area just needed to talk to me and the two other people in my ‘department’, and rearrange our schedules a bit.
I saw the computer screen while the manager was switching things around (this will ‘make sense’ in a bit), but had no idea exactly what was going on…If that makes sense.
THe other two guys and myself were scheduled for 32 hours each week, which is about average for me.
But she told one of the others (the other is switching to a new department, so Im not sure if this part applies to him), that even though his clock in time is 3pm on some days, he could clock in as early as 1pm.
Im thinking “WTF?” but don’t say anything. She didn’t say anything to me about clocking in early, or maybe staying an hour later than my schedule says (Im 99.9% of the time off at 10pm unless something happens close to clock-out time, and the next shift of people in my department dont start until 11pm).
Later Im on my first 15 minute break, and the other two people are getting into one of their trucks and leaving, when the one switching departments says something to me about “If you want to know why you’re not getting full time hours, check the board.” It was a bit loud out there because a truck was pulling into the back receiving dock, so Im not sure exactly what was said.
There’s no board I could think of that would tell me why im not getting full time hours- the only ones I know of have posters about things like safety, chain of command if you have a concern you need to talk about, wage/time off/things like that laws, or other things that would apply to the store.
I didn’t notice it when I passed the white board (that anyone can write on as far as I know), but a lady Im friendly with told me there was something in the corner…
Someone had wrote ‘penis…’ in small letters. Im not sure if thats what ‘transfer guy’ was referring to, but if he did it and is trying to get me in trouble for it, Im gonna be pissed. This isn’t the first time Ive had problems with him (Ive had a submission or two posted on this blog about him)
If the ‘department manager’ is there tomorrow when I go in, I’m gonna ask her about it. Because this is beyond messed up.
