ok time to talk about my retail job and the bullshit that’s been going on lol

so for a while now they’ve been making us ask customers for their email addresses. It was annoying at first, but whatever. Then we’re told we have to get a certain percentage of emails. First it was 15%, most recently it was 25%, and now it’s been raised to 30%. I’ve never been able to meet the goals. Admittedly, in the beginning, I wasn’t actually asking everyone. Lately I’ve been actually trying, but I still can’t reach the goal. I don’t know what other people are doing, but customers tell me no constantly. (And my managers don’t seem to believe that I’m trying, which pisses me off.) Again, it was annoying, but whatever.

Recently, however, we’ve been told that our hours are being cut depending on the amount of emails we get. Our hours are being cut as a result of something we have no way of really controlling. Thanks to this I have worked four days the entire month of August. I have worked 16 hours this entire month. I will have been with this company for four years in November, I’ve given them no problems whatsoever and have been nothing but accommodating, and this is how I’m treated.

Yesterday they told me that the email goal is going to be raised to 50% soon. That is completely unrealistic. There is absolutely no way every other person is going to give me their email address. They’ve told me ways to lie and coax customers into giving me their email. They want us to harass customers now. Not to mention the fact that on top of all of this we still have to maintain a quick average speed for check-outs. What the fUCK.

That’s not even the worst of it, no. GET THIS.

I was told that those of us who have maintained a low email capture percentage will be put on a program where we’re given special goals each week for three weeks. If we fail to meet those goals “it could lead to possible termination”. THEY’RE JUST GOING TO FIRE ME BECAUSE CUSTOMERS DON’T WANT TO GIVE ME THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.

So, with the way I’ve been scheduled, if they put me on this “program”, I essentially have three days to get people to give me their emails or I’m fired.

Fired. For something out of my control. Sorry I can’t alter free will, I wasn’t aware that was a job requirement. Assholes.

That is why I’ll be quitting.

  #I'm fucking FURIOUS    #flames. flames on the side of my face    #I hope this company goes bankrupt lol I don't care anymore    #I'm done    #do you know how much stress I've had to live with over the years for these people and this is how they thank me    #not to mention I only JUST got raised to $8 an hour    #why am I still anxious about giving them my 2 weeks notice goddammIT    #I don't like confrontation but I also want to tell them to go fuck themselves    #the struggle is real    #I don't even have a backup I'll just have my weekend job    #not like this one is really doing anything for me anyway though    #fuck it    #it's not worth the aggravation    #at all    #my life    #work    #venting

Oh man I know she's pissed'    #lol basically    #I wanted to push my register to the floor lol I'm so done    #but I'm about to fall asleep any minute probably    #I'm sure I'll vent about it tomorrow    #my life    #work    #suffice it to say mom told me to either walk out or give my two weeks notice    #I wish I had done either of those things    #soon though
