So since I have a few minutes ill post about one of my bad jobs....
First I wanna say that i LOVED working at bootbarn, I loved the product, most of my coworkers and my customers were generally pretty awesome (generally.) I just didnt like working FOR them.
When I got hired I was the second of 3 or 4 new people as lots of changes were being made. They hired one girl purely because she spoke spanish (and she had HUGE tatas..) & of course that was a HUGE flop. I worked her shifts more than I worked my own! I was constantly getting called in on my days off or early, it was really irritating. By a few months in it went from 5 or 6 sales associates to just me and one other person. This happened to me TWICE! I seriously threw up for 5 straight hours at work because there was no one to cover for me and there needed to be atleast 2 people in the store. I would start to ring someone up and have to quit halfway through to run to the back, Ive never spent so much time on the ground before. FIVE HOURS, just imagine that for a second.
So because Boot Barn is pretty lame we went through about 10 sales associates in the time I worked there, 2 managers and 2 assistant managers. The first manager proposed to me, i kid you not. but thats another story and its much more saloon friendly :)The second manager was a serious alcoholic, liked to do nothing more than stroke his beard in the middle of the store & piss off customers. I seriously had so many customers complain to me! On his first day as a manager at my store he had a customer go to corporate to complain about him. So Mr Manager is older, and like I said an alcoholic. Always calling out of work and taking days and days off. So basically long story short Mr Manager gets "hurt" at work and takes a week off, a girl from another store has to come cover his shifts. So before this since BootBarn thought it would be cool to cut me from 40 hrs to 18 with one days notice I got another job and a store in the same complex, I told Mr Manager id need a second job and made it VERY easy on them, making new job work around my hours. I was working 7-1 at one job and 1:10-8:30 at the other. Just enough time to change. So I told Mr Manager what hours I was available but gave him well over 2 weeks to sort out the schedule. So finally after 2 weeks I'm like hey, you cant keep scheduling me when im working my other job, ive showed you which hours im available. So we go through the schedule day by day and i show him what he needs to change and he tells me later that he switched me around with another coworker. Cool. So on a sunday im working at my other job and keep getting calls from the girl thats covering. Turns out he DIDNT talk to my coworker and theres no ones to open, and we're already running late on opening. So i seriously take my lunch at my second job, run over to Bootbarn so we can open and wait till other coworker who had no idea can get there, then hurry back to my other job. WTF. So after Mr Manager gets back from his "injury" leave he calls me into the back and seriously tries to write me up for not being there when he told me he changed the schedule(!!!) and for being consecutively 1 and 2 minutes late. EXCUSE ME! when I was hired i was told it was better to clock in a little late and that we had 5 mins before and after our shift started. So needless to say i said it was a pleasure working for you, adios. & walked out.
