    I'm Lost! The Call In/Sick/Late/NCNS/Attendance Thread

    You’re right! I need to make a habit of doing that. I ended up trying one last thing on Thursday: leaving a note for the etl explaining the situation/apologizing/asking for help/groveling hahaha. It seemed to do the trick because she called me back on Friday evening to say that she had talked...

    I'm Lost! The Call In/Sick/Late/NCNS/Attendance Thread

    I could use some advice! I’ve been a very reliable TM for almost 7 years at this point and have only called off maybe two or three times in my time there. I haven’t called off at all for at least 3 or so years. I now work there as a second job on the weekends because my ETL asked me to stay. I...

    Archived Help me submit my notice...

    Well, if necessary I'll try the swap shift board, but Starbucks in my store is notoriously understaffed and getting anyone to switch with you or pick up shifts is like pulling teeth.

    So I keep reading about this mysterious form, but I'm not entirely sure how to get my hands on it?

    Archived Help me submit my notice...

    So after putting in just shy of 3 years, I've finally found a position in my field and they want me to start 9/8. But if you do the math, even if I'm able to submit my two weeks today, that would still make my last day 9/9. I definitely want to leave on good terms because you never know when...

    Archived Pay increase question

    Well, I'm "glad" to hear I'm not the only one with a crappy review. I got an 8 cent raise. I got about equal E's and IE's on my performance review. >_> It kills me because they were grading me on things that really don't apply to me, since I work in Starbucks. I have little to no control over...

    Archived Dealing with schedule stuff on days off

    Ok. I know I should probably know this by now, but obviously I don't! Usually I try to take care of scheduling stuff when I'm working (hence why I haven't encountered this issue before), but this time I forgot. A coworker asked me to cover her shift, and said she'd take my shift in return...

    Archived What do you eat at work?

    I usually bring frozen dinners, sandwiches, or leftovers from the night before. Every once in a while, usually Saturdays, if I'm having a bad day I'll buy something as a "treat" - but I usually end up hating myself afterwards! Greasy Pizza Hut is not as awesome as it seems like it's going to be...

    Archived Do any of you get the same quests from people on a daily basis?

    People are always asking me where things are, usually when I'm walking to or from my breaks. Which is kind of odd, because I wear black and khaki and leave my nametag on my apron. It drives me crazy, because I don't carry a walkie, so it's not like I can really call someone to assist them, like...

    I'm Lost! The Call In/Sick/Late/NCNS/Attendance Thread

    Thanks for your help! I guess I should just gauge how I feel tomorrow morning when I wake up.

    I'm Lost! The Call In/Sick/Late/NCNS/Attendance Thread

    At some point over the holidays, I picked up a chest cold. I was starting to feel the first signs of it yesterday at work, but upon waking up this morning, it's way worse than I expected. I'm having a hard time talking and find myself in a coughing fit every few minutes. It sounds pretty nasty...

    Ohhh, ok, I see. I hadn't considered that, for some reason.

    Why would that be a problem exactly? Not that I plan on doing that, because I have a REDcard anyway... But I can't figure out why you'd get in trouble for that!

    Thanks for responding, everyone! Glad to hear I don't have too much to worry about, and I handled it correctly! :)

    Archived Should I be worried?

    So, I was scheduled to close on Friday night, and then also scheduled to start at 8 am on Saturday. I've done that a few times before, and it's never really been an issue. It's not like I'm there super late, nor do I have to wake up horrifically early. Even so, I somehow managed to sleep through...

    Archived So what time and workcenter are you scheduled for Black Friday?

    Ah, that makes sense. You won't see me questioning it! ;) I heard that they're going to have four people there... Ick. No thanks. I'm not sure what other Starbucks are like, but that place is cramped enough as it is with the usual two (occasionally three, when shifts overlap) people working...

    Archived So what time and workcenter are you scheduled for Black Friday?

    I thought for sure I'd be working overnight on Black Friday, since I'm the newbie... But I'm scheduled for 1:30-10 PM on Friday (in Starbucks, of course) instead. I'm really surprised. I need to go back and double check the schedule, to make sure that's not actually 1:30-10 AM!

    Archived Closing Starbucks...

    It did go pretty well! I only went about 10 minutes over when I was supposed to leave, so that was way better than I expected! Luckily, they now have two of us closing on the weekends, for the holidays. Which is so nice!

    Archived Closing Starbucks...

    Thank you SO much! I really don't know why nobody ever taught me some of this stuff. It's really frustrating, sometimes. But I feel a little better about it now!
