Did anyone besides the SD actually witness her not wearing a mask? If so, was it while on break/eating, or on the floor/backroom?Well the team member that was sent home yesterday for not wearing a mask came in with me and put one on. Don't know her well enough to ask her why she wouldn't wear it yesterday. #confused
Maybe she was trying to 'make a statement' (personal rights) & your SD countered with one of her own (no play, no pay)?Well the team member that was sent home yesterday for not wearing a mask came in with me and put one on. Don't know her well enough to ask her why she wouldn't wear it yesterday. #confused
Not a guest, a team member. Not that team members can't be batshit crazy too, but one would hope someone who works here would understand.Why is there a pound sign before the word confused? Assholes all over the country are pulling guns on each other over the mask rule. Shooting them also. Fuck them all, not worth getting blasted.
I'm just impressed that they managed to actually make things worse by including a wink-and-a-nod "well, you don't have to wear one" in the overhead message. They could have at least made it sound like they had a spine, or reminded people that they need to stay 6ft away from TMs instead.When the overhead message says “if you prefer not to wear a mask...”, my mind always finishes it with “get the fuck out of our store!”
Ours is handing out masks and writing down every time a person refuses to wear one when told it's mandatory. So...no.
Also I apologize ahead of time for being sexist.
I worry when they put skinny girls who looks like a strong wind would knock them over up there to "enforce" this. They were picked because of how friendly they were but that does not stop me worrying about when some crazy fool would get violent. Maybe that's why the AP TL was hanging around.
I went to a target about two hours away from my store and in another state today. They had a young girl sitting at the table out front handing out masks. I said hello to her and told her "I'm sorry you got the shit job". She admitted it had been awful.
Did you all start doing this on the weekend? There was no change at my store yet. Maybe I'll show up and we will be doing this tomorrow. We have lots of people with the noses hanging out (TM and guest) and the Food Ave TMs aren't wearing it at all when they aren't guest facing.
Whether or not they're currently allowed as a replacement (they shouldn't be afaik but yknow.. ASANTS), you shouldn't anyway...they do virtually nothing on their own. They are designed to protect you against direct spray (into your eyes) - that's it.
I’ll be shocked if they don’t let you wear them. But then again, in the early days of the pandemic, a local Trader Joe’s near me wouldn’t let employees wear masks or gloves because it wasn’t “on brand”, Unfortunately, that had fatal consequences at that store.
