She asked me if I had taken my phone to the store before. I told her that I had taken it out on request to show my coworkers how to use a new Bluetooth product. I was asked by a higher up at the store to do so. She told me then that this was simply company policy and there was nothing she could do. If I had been leaning over the counter playing angry birds or solitaire and ignoring my responsibilities then I could understand. I have never been in trouble with this company. Within the first two months I was already given bookkeeping tasks along with my normal sales associate responsibilities.
If I had just kept my mouth shut, and not said anything, she never would have known, and I would still had a job. I thought I was doing the right thing by telling her. I would have GLADLY gotten reprimanded for relieving my coworker a few minutes late to take my phone back to the office if I had known this was the result.
She has been getting in serious trouble with corporate for her scheduling. With the amount of business the company is expecting, they have cut her allotted hours to schedule people. She has been cutting as much as she could and it hasn't been enough, clearly. I am starting to wonder if, since I am still the newest hire(I was there a year and a half, the other ladies all over 4 years) I was on the list of "easiest" to cut and she took the opportunity to get someone off the payroll. Something else has been bothering me. The company gives out gift certificates for the birthdays of the employees. They usually come a week before ones birthday. Mine never came and it has been over a month. I am so confused. I want answers. I was doing such a great job... Or so I was told.
I have two little part time jobs. Both of them don't bring in half of what the job I lost did, but I wonder if they will hurt my chances at getting unemployment. I can't call until Wednesday, according to the recording on the local line. The way the wording is on the online form, I just want to make sure the other jobs won't affect the claim.
