March 6, 2015 - Overworked
Coached everyday I work, will probably be fired soon
I wasn’t bullied much in school, but at this shitty place being bullied is an everyday thing. My TL and STL are the biggest pieces of shit I have ever encountered. I’m hardlines, so I’m expected to push pulls, reshop, research, ect. The problem is, despite working my ass off I’m never recognized. In fact, I’m told I’m too slow and chat too much, which is complete bullshit. I’m on my third push cart when the other guy is still on his first. I never talk to anyone for over three minutes at a time. What, am I just supposed to not say a word to anyone for the whole day? Is this prison? What a joke, especially when I hear management laughing it up in the backroom or breakroom constantly. I see them do nothing BUT talk to each other and they say I talk too much? Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit. It’s usually just me and and one or two other guys pushing if I’m lucky because this place is too goddamned cheap to schedule enough people. I have to help with carry outs, backup cashier, and answer calls too. I see other team members talking all day and even some on their phones while on the floor and yet they seem to never get talked to. I have always been a hard worker and have busted my ass more than I should have for what I’m paid at this shithole. It’s insulting to me to hear that my TL and STL think I’m a lazy ass when I’m one of the few hard working people left in the store. Every damn day I come in I’m taken aside by my dumbass TL and talked to about my performance. It’s like, oh here we go AGAIN. Sorry, but if not everything got pushed for the day, that isn’t on me. I did all I could with the shitty hours I was given and don’t you fucking dare tell me I didn’t. How about scheduling sufficient staff to help me out? Don’t expect me to perform miracles asshole. I know my TL doesn’t like me because I’m not one of his “buddies”. This piece of shit hires in his friends when someone quits, so they don’t have to do shit. I’m given all the shitty jobs, despite having seniority over his new hires. I feel like I’m being bullied and he is just looking for whatever bullshit reasons he can, real or not, to get me fired and one of his friends hired in my spot. It’s been a long time since I’ve hated someone as much as this guy. I want to karate chop this ass in the throat and teach him some respect, but alas that isn’t allowed. The STL has that corny, fake used car salesman personality around employees and customers, but talks shit about me behind my back. He has no idea what I do everyday, yet feels qualified to tell my TL to bitch at me. I’ve applied to several other places in an attempt to get a new job before I’m inevitably fired, but nobody has called me back. This is so frustrating, I feel like I’m trapped and my depression is worsening by the day. I’m a good hard working person, why is this happening to me? I have no recourse against these assholes. They’re going to put me on the street for what, because I don’t kiss their ass? They can suck it. Fuck this shit store.
