Ok, I started my job in August, when I was about 3 months pregnant. Up until about a month ago, everything was going very smoothly. For the most part, they seemed to understand that I’m pregnant and can’t quite perform the physical feats of someone who isn’t.
Then, on Halloween, the store manager came back from surgery. It’s been down hill from there. He seems intent on catching me up in something. No matter what I do, I seem to always be doing it wrong to him. Things he will let other employees get away with, he will hunt me down to scream at me over. This past week, my hours were cut HORRIBLY. I was cut by more than 20 hours.
When I asked the scheduling manager what had happened, he didn’t even beat around the bush. He said it was because the store manager wasn’t fond of me or my work. Last night, I got a voicemail saying that my shift for today had been cut, due to the store not making plan this week. However, when I got to work today to pick up my pay check, there were at least 4 or 5 people at the customer service desk, three at the register, two in the cafe, and when I got on Facebook, it didn’t appear that anyone I was friends with had had their hours cut, because they all said something about working.
When they left the voicemail they did say that they would see me Monday for my next shift. I’m freaking out that I’m about to be fired, but I figure if that was the case, they would have done it instead of telling me to come to work on Monday.
I’ve never called off, the only time I ever went home early was because I was going to the emergency room, I pick up shifts and trade with people when they ask me to, yet, I seem to be the only one being punished for anything. I have a coworker who has called off and literally said it was because he didn’t feel like standing for 8 hours, and then the next week, didn’t show up AT ALL for a shift, or call to say why. Yet, nothing happens to him.
Everytime the phone isn’t answered or a customer isn’t led directly to an item, the store manager assumes it was me, and yells at me about it, on the floor, and if I try to say anything, he just interrupts me and walks away. As far as I saw a couple of days ago, I have a full schedule next week, and since they didn’t say anything about cutting those hours, I’m trying not to freak out too badly, but I feel like now the store manager is looking for any excuse to get rid of me.
