In my store, I am the store manager, I have an assistant manager and then the third manager is called the third key holder. Aside from that I have five cashiers. My third key has been calling out almost once a week since I’ve been there which has really left me in a mess because it has caused me to work a double almost every week not to mention keeping me from getting the store caught up. Well, after staying out two days and then being a no call no show on Sunday, she called in Monday and quit. Great! It was bad enough that she called out all the time, now she just quits without notice. Doesn’t anyone have any kind of pride or respect for a job anymore? I really have a difficult time with stuff like this.
So, I have a brand new man in there I’m trying to train quick because I won’t get a day off until he is in place. And I’m hoping that being a man, he will be able to get enough done to help me get caught up. I’m nervous about it though because I’ve already figured out that he has OCD. He wants to do everything to such a state of perfectionism that it takes him all day to do anything. I already want to scream because I’m frustrated and tired.
Yes, I know that all of this is part of the job. I just want to get caught up and get on track here. I’m slowly but surely getting there, but I know my boss is starting to get impatient. There are still so many things that I’m not getting done and I don’t like being “that manager” that is always behind. Blahhhh!
