I need advice, I’m literally about to walk out the door and not return to my job. I’m furious right now.
When I started working here 3 years ago everything was fine. The GM got a job offer in another state and the AGM got promoted, everything went to heck after that. The managers do coke in the bathroom, they are constantly discussing obscene things and very vulgar.
I worked full time and over time for almost 3 years before they finally agreed to sign me up for insurance. I get my insurance in January on the first and the manager tells me today that they cancelled my insurance because I don’t work enough hours. Granted since my medical issues while waiting for insurance I can’t work full time until I get the doctors approval and on medication.
It’s 6 months until you qualify for insurance. I was here for 6 months before the GMs change and I have to wait another 6 months. Then I work for the next 6 months and we get a new management company in where we have to wait 6 months (this is at my 6 month line where I was a few days from being eligible) so basically they have been screwing me over and I racked up thousands in hospital bills.
So I get insurance in January. Last week the GM gave me a piece of paper and said to fill it out ASAP. It was because there was a change in insurance. But on the paper it said to be turned in by March first (I didn’t get it until last week now) for the benefits to continue. So now I have no insurance but have my EEG test on Thursday for the neuro.
I’m pretty sure, my boss as forgetful as she is, forgot to give me the paper in time and now my insurance was cancelled as a result as MANY other part time employees have insurance but not me
My boss is being a total b**** and the ONLY reason I have been keeping my job (my fiance keeps asking me to quit so I can just focus on school and be away from this crap hole work place full of drugs and trashy people) is so I could have insurance. Now I’m told I don’t have it and will not get it again until January next year (have to be full time 6 full months and in order to be eligible for June I’d have had to be full time since Jan.
This is BS, it’s taking everything in me not to walk out the door. I want to quit.
What would you do?

I wouldn’t quit. I would completely stop working, and wait to be fired. Maybe not the best advice, but I hate to mess up a chance for unemployment!

@kris325: Before I would quit, I would see if I can have another job lined up. But then, if you have school, you might as well concentrate on school. Most schools do offer some sort of insurance, you just have to pay along with your tuition. The coverage usually sucks, but better than nothing.

So I walked out. 4 hours into my shift I asked to take a break to eat (we can’t eat at our desks) so I could take some medicine. I was feeling terrible. The AGM said “yeah give me a minute” so 30 minutes later I went to his office and he left and went home. I hardly ever (like the last time was about 6 months ago) ask him to watch my desk while I take a short break. Even though we are state law required at least a 30 minute break for 8 hour shifts. So I went to the GM who gat a serious attitude with me because I needed a 10 minute break saying “I need someone who is dependable and not needing to take a break” even though they ALWAYS say “ask for a break don’t just leave your desk, you get a break on your 8 hour shifts”
So she came up to the desk after being really rude and I walked out on my “break” and didn’t go back. She freaked out because I wanted a 10 minute break. I’m releived to be rid of that place. The last two years have been horrible and I’ve wanted to quit almost every shift, now I finally have.

@kris325: you go girl! my FI walked out of his job (scary with a wedding right around the corner) and we celebrated with the most expensive dinner we’ve ever had.
He now has an amazing job, 10,000 dollar raise, and is happy.

They do coke in the bathroom? WTF? Why haven’t the authorities been called?
Other than that question, I’d like to say GOOD FOR YOU!!!!! It feels SO great leaving a toxic workplace, doesn’t it? Like the weight of the world has been literally lifted off your shoulders. Never look back! You’re lucky to have a supportive FI. Who needs to work in a place like that!
