Why do I have to stop coming in at noon just because someone else missed you off??!
Why do I have to come in at 2 again for her missing you off??!
Why take it out on EVERYONE else??! It's not everyone else's fault for what seems like ONE PERSON taking advantage of you??!
I had freaking PERMISSION to come in at noon!!! PERMISSION!!! Now you're saying that, including myself, HAVE to workout normally scheduled time. I wouldn't have minded if you had just come to each of us and asked if we could start working what we are scheduled.
Also, does this mean that the ladies who refuse to work certain days, i.e. Friday's and Sunday's, have to work those days if they are scheduled in the system to work???
Based on your email, the answer is a resounding yes.
Just so you know, if this is indeed the case, you are about to lose at minimum 2 to 3 additional people, if not more. I know of 3 people who do not work on Sunday's.
It's not going to be pretty when these 3 ladies realise that you are gonna make them work Sunday's. One's schedule supposedly comes direct from the home office because it was specifically created by them FOR her.
I'm begging you NOT to screw with the schedules. I do, however, applaud you for putting your foot down. Making it known what you will and will not accept from associates.
But, in writing that email, and in telling everyone they HAVE to work the days that is in the system even tho those days aren't in their availability, you are slowly, .maybe even quickly, pushing your associates away.
I'm sorry that that one associate pushed you over the edge and pissed you off so bad you felt led to write that email. In reality, you should have already had it snipped in the bud. Telling her that she is not allowed to go over to online grocery pickup if she's on the apparel schedule. Told that assistant manager to NOT call her over anymore. And also had HIM tell her she can't come over there anymore.
Honey, that's partially your fault. Not all of it is your fault. Only like 1%. Yes people took advantage of your niceness and kindness. But that's no reason to take it out on EVERYONE who work in your areas.
Be prepared for another uprising. Just. Be. Prepared.
