I worked in many a retail enviroment. Document, document, document. I would definitely go over your manager’s head and talk to your DM. Aren’t there online GED courses? I remember a friend of mine years ago even doing courses via telelvision…I have no idea about it, I’m just throwing that out there.

I am sorry you have to go through this “poop” Yes, document everything, maybe even take pictures of the empty cups and straws etc….the girl who calls in sick every friday and saturday, and the work you have to do because of the slackers… with a camera with date and time so your DM knows that you’re fed up with being abused.

@allyfally:  You don’t sound like a spoiled brat, you sound like you’re doing everyone else’s job. I LOVED walking in the next day, after someone else closed, and taking pictures of the store *not being vacuumed * fitting rooms full * store not properly merchandised *totes full of merch still unopened *cash register area a disaster * deposits still in the safe. It’s called covering your ass. Hell no am I taking the blame for that.

The best day was when the DM finally showed up on one of those mornings as I was documenting it.

*fyi, I was fired from that job. For being late. Ha.

I just noticed you’re in Louisville. I’m from Lexington. You have so many malls, (I used to work in Lou) and some store don’t require a GED. What experience do you have besides this store?

Here goes Kelly, trying to fix the world again.

Take the pp’s suggestion. Document you concerns and take pictures of the undone work.

Then schedule a meeting with your manager. Have you ever really sat down with her and expressed your concerns about how the other emloyees not carrying their weight can affect the bottom line of the business? Customers won’t keep coming back if the place is untidy.

I would also ask for a copy of the policies re sick time, phoning in etc  and ask what the standard is so that you know what to expect. Employees should be able to expect that they will all be treated the same way.

If a face to face doesn’t improve things, I would then ask for a meeting with the DM to share my documentation and the notes of the meeting I had with the manager.

As far as the GED is concerned, can you not check with your local school district or State Board of Education re online courses?

I found the information for you on Jefferson County Public Schools Adult and Continuing Education page.

Enrollment is free:

It doesn’t mention online classes, but if you really can’t get to their courses they may be able to refer you to a credible online resource.

@allyfally:  I PM’d you about some hook ups. Also, you should have a policy and procedure handbook, probably kept in the POS area. I am a big fan of highlighting policies and hanging them on the daily clipboard for EVERYONE TO INITIAL. Or , just ask questions about procedures…ask them to be reviewed. And when your boss is going over them, give everyone the eyebrow.
