TTOTM: please stop calling out just because it's nice out. If you're scheduled, its because you are needed and you should of put in a time off request if you wanted off. In this case, we had a group of people all call off to go to the pride parade. How did we know?
Someone who got there shift worked around going to pride told us as much, when they seem they called off.
Last night we had 11 people call off. All of AP, all of our closing FF team, all of our hardliners closing team (leaving our CE, Cosumables and a softlines TM as the only people on the floor - at first) and a closing GS, plus a cashier and batista.
What did this result in? Only eight TMs closing the store, including a ETL and a TL, before anyone was called in.
I personally was in early at 7 and was scheduled until 3:45. I ended up staying until close, that being 7 am - 10 pm. A TM was called in and had OT approved, and another TM stayed late. That's 11 TM when we normally have maybe 15 - 20 closing on a Sunday.
After working 13 days straight and working that long shift, I'm beat.
So, TTOTM that called off just to go to an event - just remember, we know. 💜
But hey, I got more hours, a free lunch and a free dinner out of it. It was just stressful.
