I got hired on as seasonal with the chance to prove myself and get hired on full time. I have to sign up for benefits although I’m not sure how to do that. I got on the website and it is confusing. I read through the benefits materials and SRS surgeries are covered! I am so incredibly excited! The plan pricing is really reasonable also. The last time I had medical through a job I was paying almost $500 a month for family and this is much lower with the same co-pays but more benefits! I really hope that I can get hired on full time. The pay, hours, and benefits are amazing.
Found out the other day that the owner of my other job (the one I’ve had for 6 years) bought another store and picked a store manager…surprise, it isn’t me. His reasoning, I can’t work nights or weekends. I think that is a lame excuse because my old store manager who is now his regional manager, wasn’t able to do nights or weekends either when he gave her the job. Honestly, I don’t care anymore. My store has had 5 or 6 store manager’s since I got hired on so obviously something isn’t right with how they are treated. The last manager as well as the current one have confided in me all the pressure put on them by the owner and staff and they don’t make much more than what I am. It isn’t worth it. As employees we are not valued for what we do. We have to repeatedly beg for raises. Night shift expects all our work to be done yet they don’t do half of what they are suppose to be doing and leave it all for the 1 person that opens in the morning to do on top of all the things they have to get done. It’s a never ending vicious cycle and I am tired of it. I like what I do but it is just too much. The turn-around rate is so high that I don’t even bother to remember anyone’s name until they have been there at least 3 months. Of all the people that were there when I started, I am the only one left. Sad really. That is why I am so excited for this new job. I am not going to leave my current job unless I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that I will be hired on full time. I don’t want to be stuck in limbo if the new job doesn’t pan out. But, considering the owner re-hires people that steal, lie, do drugs while on the clock, and stand around not doing anything other than hit on customers and be on their phones…I have no doubt that as a hard worker I would get re-hired if I asked to come back. I don’t really want to beg for my job back though. Don’t get me wrong, if it means providing for my family I will.
Hope you all made it a great day!
