Alright. So usually the break schedules are made up ahead of time and everything is fine and shit, but I switched shifts with a woman last Saturday, and my fucking god. I was initially scheduled for 4:30-10, got called in at 3 to cashier for an hour and a half, so that’s a seven hour shift. 2 breaks, 1 lunch. I wasn’t even ON the break schedule for one. And even though I brought this up with both LODs (yes there were two that night) and with the HR and with the chicks up at the service desk, nothing was done about it. So by 5:30 I still hadn’t had a break, so I was just like fuck it, went to take my break. And the other guy I was working with didn’t get his first break until like 6, granted he was in at 3:30, so not quite so bad…but fuckin’ still. And then, get this. No word on my lunch until 8:30. I’m there until 10. I didn’t get my goddamn LUNCH until 8-fucking-30. Meaning my last break was supposed to be in my final hour, while the store was a mess, there was a ton of customers, and I had to zone all of A. I just… And what makes this all worse, is that they would outright ignore me on walkie, they wouldn’t respond immediately when I asked about my breaks, and were just all-around unprofessional and idiotic. Eventually at around 9:15 after asking if I should take my break over walkie, the LOD just comes to me and says “yes technically you do get a break” and I was all “good. but i won’t take it so we can get shit done” all the while giving him the stink eye. God damn. How fucking difficult is it to get the salesfloor break schedule done?!
