Default Is this as ridiculous to you as it is to me? (VENT)

I work in a bakery at my local grocery store. Not really the place you would think where the bosses would be so strict about hours, but it turns out, they are.

So, for the past 4 months, I've closed the bakery at night. It takes me exactly 5 hours to do everything I need to do. It takes about 4 hours and 15 minutes if I leave there with a full bladder, a red face and sweaty pits. That is of course if I don't have anything extra to do that was left behind by other people.

I've got it down to a science.

Then, the boss starts scheduling me for a 4 hour shift each time. And I leave there with a full bladder, red face, and sweaty pits, 15 minutes late. Which to me, wouldn't be bad since I'm leaving the place immaculate.

However, at our work your not "allowed" to go over on minutes. Apparently the higher ups who sit in cushy chairs and make all the rules give each department a certain amount of hours, and our bosses get in trouble if we go over those hours. It's all based on how well your certain department is doing as to how many hours you get.

So, to counteract my building extra time, they schedule me a THREE hour shift. Wouldn't be so bad if I came in and half of my work is already done. But is it? NOOOOOO. So, a three hour shift quickly turns into a 4 hours and 15 minute shift. And yet again, I leave with a full bladder, red face, and sweaty pits. Yes, I am stinky and I'm mad.

Now we have a meeting tomorrow. Not the whole store. ONLY the bakery department. And it's about our hours. If my boss can't get out of there on time, how the FUCK am I supposed to? Is it that difficult to schedule me 5 hours instead of 4? So you schedule me one less day a week. So what. At least you know I won't go over my hours.

All I have to say is, what the FUCK.

P.S. I love my job. Not complaining about the job. Just the bosses with fucked up time tables.

It is perfectly natural for a person to vent about their bosses.

And yes, this guy sounds like he doesn't know what he is doing.

Welcome to working in a Grocery store, I've been putting up with this shit for two years.

Basically this is what you say tomorrow - I do my job. I close properly, I leave the place disinfected and in perfect condition. In order to do so, I need a solid five hours of time. If you do not want to schedule me the five hours, fine, give me shorter shifts but ensure that the other employees are going to be starting my close for me before I arrive, or else you'll be paying me overtime.

Not sure how it works in the States, but in Quebec as soon as you punch out after your scheduled shift, the store owes you overtime. So either tell your boss to get the other employee's acts together and start cleaning their shirt, or s/he'll be paying you 5 1/2 hours when you only worked 3.

Are you unionized? Most grocery stores are - if yes, take it to the union.

It can't be helped.

If they want you to leave at an exact time without exception, then inform them that you will not be able to finish everything you need to do properly since you have not been allocated proper time to do so, therefore there will be certain things that cannot be done due to the amount of work that exists to be done and the unreasonable amount of time allocated in which to accomplish it.

They can't have their cake and eat it too. If they want to gamble thinking they can get rid of you and hopefully find someone who will work and breakneck speed without comprimising quality and bust their ass for shitty hours, then that's their call.

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit."

No union. Kinda happy about that too. Unions are a pain in the ass. Well, in the states they are.

Also, they can't fire me, or loss prevention would have their asses handed to them. I'm just going to tell them how it is. It takes 5 hours to do my job with no help. Either get me the help, or get my 5 hours. If you can't do that then expect me to get overtime. But I DAMNED sure am not going to bust my ass to get out of there an extra 45 minutes early from now on. No more sweaty Meghan for me!!

I'll DEF let you guys know what happens at the meeting. Hell, I might do a voice recording of that shit!

Definitely talk to your boss about the hours, and tell him he needs to talk to his bosses if it cant get worked out between just you two.

But... regarding the hours.... seriously? I have had tons of shifts where I have to stay way late and take no break (talking 12+ hour shifts) and work my ass off to try and keep up. Pretty much every shift I work I am sweaty at the end of the day. You want to complain about having to work hard for FOUR?

No no. Like I said, not complaining about the work. I don't mind working hard. In fact, I like it. What I'm complaining about is getting yelled at because when go over on hours. I don't think anyone should have to get yelled at for busting ass, ya know? It's like, what do they want me to do, leave a mess? Cause I damned sure am not clocking out and then finishing my work.

Oh, and the meeting had nothing to do with our hours. Which confused the hell outta me. lol. It was about our CSI (Customer Service Index) rating.

I worked as a butcher in a supermarket to put myself through college.

I got this same line of conversation consistently. The trick is to send the shit right back up to the top of the hill, and when it rolls down again, just keep sending it back up.

What they really want is for the problem to get lost in the chain-of-command/bureaucracy. They have to make it look like they can't afford to run in such a manner in order to give the really big ups the illusion of control. Pretty much anyone outside of the store level or the logistical level is a filled suit who in reality has no bearing on the success of the company, beyond giving a thumbs up to the hard work of other folks and taking credit for it.

Just keep the shit rolling up and down, and it'll never settle in one place long enough to stink.

Welcome to the Obama economy. In order to keep as many employees on the payroll as possible in a time of decreasing sales, employers have to cut hours. There's no getting around it. Either you work less hours or you don't work any hours at all.

That's the boss's perspective anyway. Your perspective is you have a list of tasks to do for your job, you take pride in working hard, it isn't humanly possible to do the list to your satisfaction (as well as your boss's) in the time they give you. Tell them that.
