Hello reddit people, I don't usually post on here but I figured I would give the experience I just had a few hours ago at work.
I was a night shift stock associate for a big grocery store. And last night was a dark night, meaning that instead of stocking the shelves we were blocking the shelves. Blocking means to pull things forward on the shelf. Well, it's usually 4 of us who are there. Two people (the managers) are doing repack (putting things onto the shelf that once couldn't be put up) and two people are blocking. The other person who blocks with me quit his job two weeks ago. So what's supposed to happen is that the assistant manager would come help me with blocking while the manager does repack. However, I got put to block the entire store by myself for two weeks in a row. I did this all by myself, I didn't take any breaks either and my managers got upset and angry at me for not working hard enough. By not working hard enough they mean this: I apparently wasn't blocking correctly (even though I was and also if I wasn't then why did they let me do the entire store by myself and also why did they put me in this position to do this for months now if I didn't do it correctly), I apparently didn't do the entire store according to them (even though I did all the aisles from 1-13 which is what we NORMALLY DO), and apparently I was trying to leave early without permission (even though whenever I finished working I walked up to them and asked if I could leave. And “early” btw is at the end of my shift, they were just upset I didn't come help do the work that they were supposed to do. But anyway, they brought me into the office at the end and sat me down and told me that I just wasn't performing correctly then they wrote me up and told me to do better. Then they told me that I should consider this a warning that if I don't then they'll find someone new.
So I looked them in the eyes, went and wrote up my two week notice, left it on the front desk and left. For weeks now I've been dealing with their bullying and abuse in the workplace. For weeks now I've been told that I'm not good enough and that they can just replace me. I was sick and tired of it.
This is all I have to say, sorry if it seems like a rant (it kinda is).
