I just have to get this out because I am pissed to no avail so if you want to respond feel free, if you don't then it's cool too. This is more just to get this complete and total bs off my chest for the moment.

I've been working with this store since June, and those of you who were there back then know the enormous amount of EDIT that they put me through when I first started. I was picked on to no end, and then finally after awhile I was accepted to the group so to say. They've even offered to make me management at times when they were pissed off with someone else, which I didn't want cause I have never wanted to stay with this company any longer than I have to, and I also didn't want to become a manager because they decided that they had to be pissed at someone so they picked her.

So today we got a new girl. This may sound bad but I started off feeling sorry for her because I expected her to have to go through all the crap that I went through. The thing is she didn't. For starters and this may sound totally petty and stupid, everyone in the store has these kahki aprons with the stores name on them and their name. Well I didn't have one so they gave me a generic and is it one with just no name on it? No it's a freaking ugly pale blue and white checked apron with stupid little flowers all over it. So I stick out because I have a different apron and I hate this apron. The thing is there are multiples of this particular apron, which they give me a new one of everytime my apron gets dirty. So I'm expecting the new girl to get an apron like mine. Boy was I wrong. She got one like theirs. So I still stick out like a sore thumb and it's just crap I tell you. My mom decided to buy me an apron and if we have to we'll make it me. If I'm going to be singled out for the different apron then by god it's going to be one that I actually like.

The apron thing isn't all. She got to do the mindless work I always do. Taking tags off stuff and putting new on, which is what I expected because thats what the new person does. Now considering the fact that this is all I've done since I started working there, you can see how I wouldn't know what to do because I haven't been trained in anything else. So I'm told to go ask this person what to do and they tell me to go ask that person what to do who tells me to go ask so and so what to do, and basically I end up just going around trying to find out what to do then giving up and just straightening stuff. Aparently that wasn't good enough, because I got pulled aside and told that I need to stop being lazy basically and even if I don't have something to do to pretend that I'm doing something. I wanted something to do, no one would let me though.

Add to this, I know how does it get worse right? Anyways add to this the fact that I've been trying since I got there to get to know where everything is in the backroom and be able to restock stuff without having to be told to or be told where to but everytime I try I'm told not to or they tell me they'll just get the stuff out themselves. Well this new girl after being put under my tuatlidge after lunch, runs out of things to do and hell I don't know what to have myself do let alone have her do, gets trained in the back! They have me stay out on the floor and do the mindless job of watching the empty store in case a customer came in so they could show her how to do stuff in the back. Then they get pissed off at me because I'm not doing anything. What the EDITing hell.

The day finally ended and I ended up coming home, smoking multiple ciggarettes and being so pissed off that I was actually in tears. I hate this job. I hate the owners. I hate the store. I hate the product. I hate their annoying dogs who have to get in the way when I'm carrying heavy furniture anywhere. Most of all I hate that stupid EDITing apron!

Ugh. That's so insanely stupid. I'm so sorry you have to go through that, Lo. =/

I wish that dream I had about me going to the UK and needing an assistant was true, because I'd hire you in an instant. smile.gif I even wouldn't mind if you just brought me coffee, even though I hate the stuff.

They are just idiotic, petty people, and they aren't worth your tears. If you ever need to vent about them in further detail with more swearing, I'm always here. smile.gif

That sounds a lot like my job Lo sad.gif
I'll have nothing to do and end up bugging everyone for stuff to do. They have nothing so I look for other things to do such as tidying up the office and such. I then get a bollocking for not doing anything. Now, this may sound like lack of initiative, but it isn't. I'm basically and adminatrator who does the odd bit of drawing (I work in an architects office) and I can't just carry on and draw stuff without being told what to do. I can't do a large percentage of the admin stuff as our recpeptionist won't share the work load. Jeez..it sucks. I have some other job vacency's I've gone for, so all limbs crossed.
End rant.

/me hugs Lo...We should start our own company. We could provide an escort agency laugh.gif biggrin.gif

Is this a large multinational chain you work for or just a one store operation?

Geesh.... I'm really sorry, LoLo. sad.gif I thought that hopefully things were getting better for you there, but this is just really wrong. Why are they treataing her so differently? Did she already know somebody who works there before she got the job there?

I hope that things will change for you soon. Maybe you'll get another job soon--one that you could actually enjoy would be good!

Nope it's a locally owned business.

I don't know, that's what is pissing me off. If they don't pick on her because she's new then them picking on me was meerly because im me.

Nope just someone at the staffing agency. She interviews people from the staffing agency though and picks her favorite, it's not anything to do with who knows who at the agency.

an option: tell'em to stick their crappy job where the sun dont shine, and move on to another place, where you might even be able to bask in the company of like minded individuals ... (which in your case is probably a government owned institution of some sort)

Seriously... just quit the job and find a new one. It's bound to be easier now that school's started up again, so all the summer employee jobs are unfilled... there's no reason to stay there and receive that kind of treatment.

i can't believe they're STILL doing this to you, lo. that's just not right. i really hope it works out sad.gif *hugs*

well, my advice (coming from absolutely ZERO experience) is to take the offer for management. that might make it easier to get a job somewhere else.

I've been management in every job I've had and I feel that I have earned it in every job that I have had, however in this one I do not. I don't think that I am properly trained for such extra responsibilities. Sure I can open and close and run the machines and prepare deposits but I can't stock, so I don't want it.

Anyways the reason I came on here is I just finished making myself an apron. Last night my mom bought one for me that was kahki like everyone else's but if I'm going to have a different apron it's going to be me, I think I said this in an earlier post. This one I made is black with white stiching, and has two tribal tat looking designs on the pockets. I also have my name on it. hehe. Along with this I will be ordering an apron from Mata tomorrow (thanks Mata biggrin.gif ) when I get my paycheck and see how long if at all I can get away with one that says, "Conform Consume Obey" on it. It's worth it just to give it a shot. laugh.gif

...oi , *hugzz* hey have you considered those non profit debt consolidation agencies that negotiate a lowered fee and interest rate so that you CAN quit and find something better...or negotiate with the creditors yourself??? I know I did becuase i got myself in a little trouble and basically asked for mercy and got them to defer payments and or lower the monthly minimum until i changed jobs... some can go for 3 months ... can't hurt to try ...why spin your wheels and be unappreciated??? I wouldn't? You are better than her!!!

She is a pretty skinny brunnette.

(this almost seems insulting to me even though I know you didn't meen it that way)

I think the only reason the apron was available was because it's through cafe press. Also there is a conform consume obey boxer choice there.

*hugs* I know how crappy jobs can be, I've done my fair share of crappy jobs. My current one is OK but it's soooo busy right now that I maybe get 10 minutes on the board a day and I miss all you guys because of it sad.gif

I agree with a couple of other people, tell them to stick the job where the sun doesn't shine and look for another one. OK, granted, it might not be that easy but do you really need to put up with their cr*p?!? unsure.gif

Anyway *hugs* again! smile.gif

So I wore in my new apron yesterday and guess what? They loved it. Suddenly I am the most talented and cool person at work again. Oh and they're picking on the new girl so much that she wants to quit. I feel her pain. I feel kind of bad for being relieved that this is happening, because I don't want her to be picked on but at least I know that they weren't picking on me just because I'm me.
