Just a quick update since I've been MIA for the last four or five (or however many) months and not actively updating. I'm still at the grocery store, but I may not be for much longer. I'm kicking my new-job-search into high gear because I'm at my high point of pissed off with the job.
The holiday were what they usually are, but with not as much spirit in it this year (well, I certainly wasn't feeling much of the holiday "love" this year). I didn't put as much effort into the food bank donation drive this year, but I earned enough to be invited to the pizza party next week. Let's hope I win that damn iPad that they're raffling off. And P.B. was the highest donation earner again this year. But it sucked because T.J. and L.J. are both gone, and N.S. wasn't earning as much as she normally would because she was stuck at the self-check registers for the majority of the holidays because of her shoulder. But one of our newer cashiers was a high-earner, so that's always good to see.
But like I've said....I've had my fill. I have to consult my union handbook about it, but I believe I was entitled to my regular six-month raise around Christmas, and my last paycheck did not reflect it. I don't know if the payraises taper off after being employed for FIVE YEARS, but I really need to look into it.
Two of our assistant managers have left us to be in charge of the new store that's opening up a town over. I'm still iffy if I want to transfer over there when they open. Probably not. One of them who's going to be the main store manager is kind of a bitch, and the other one I just wasn't too thrilled to work with.
My hours have been looking like complete SHIT lately. Of course, post-holidays, they've been scaled back. But more early-morning shifts (WHY?!!!), and why the fuck was I scheduled till 9 PM one night, then had to be back to be the opening cashier at 6 AM the next goddamned morning?! I barely got any sleep that night! Oh, and the hours are still inconsistent as hell. Tell me why I'm working 4 PM to 9 PM tonight. They hardly ever put me on night shifts anymore. (Which I don't mind; I miss working the afternoon/evening shifts, to be quite honest.) Is it because they don't have enough cashiers trained to work the self-check registers?
