Rant, blah blah...


I haven't been to this journal for the longest time. Anyhow, I'm just was wondering yesterday why I left Disney for this crap of a job. Ok, it's alright and yes, I've finally been promoted to cashier but!! why does this job still suck to me? Actually, the only real complaints I have about HEB are that they should learn to care for us a little bit more. Well, at least that's how it's at this location. I have sucky ass days don't get me wrong, but yesterday must've been one of the worse days I've had in a long time. First of all, I was to go in at 5:30 to 11:30. Can't complain about this scedule anymore since I hate mornings due to the texas heat. Anyhow, one of our ccm's called me at 10am in the morning, woke me up and asked if I can go in earlier at 3:30. Sure, I have no problem with that. I did just sleep at 7am but that's cool, I still have some time to sleep in a few more and what not. I started to get these really bad stomach aches and my best friend decided to take me across to matamoros to get myself checked out. This was at 1pm and I still had time before I went to work. We got out of the doctors at 2:30 and so I had to go in at 3:30 so it was alright. I got to work and I wanted to eat and have sometime to rest and take my pills with food and whatnot. So I get there and ask the ccm that called me if I can go in at 4pm instead of 3:30 and I explained my ordeal with my stomach and I just wanted to rest and eat and stuff. But he was like well, we're very short right now so just no. WHAT!? UGH! That pissed the fuck out of me. It's bad enough that I agreed to come in at 3:30, the fucker could've at least let me take care of myself before going into work. So yeah, I ended up eating fast, taking the pills and going into work at 3:35 ~_~ Bastards. That's not the only time that happened to me. About 3 months ago, I called in telling them that I had just gotten into a car crash and that I wasn't going to be able to make it and they're like, take some time to rest and come in 3 hours. I was like wtf? Excuse me, I'm not going in period. I didn't jeez!!! Car crash!!? Hello. Anyhow, so yeah, I got into work, started to do baskets and well I went in at 3:30 and stayed my whole shift till 11:30. Or that's what I thought. I ended up staying there in the fucking parking lot collecting baskets till 12:30 because the partner before me didn't pick up that many baskets and guess what, she was able to leave at 11:30. That was the time I was supposed to leave. Noone went out there to check if I needed help and believe me, when 11:30 starts rolling around, it's pretty dead. Partners start to walk around out of thier boxes and start mingling with the other partners. The ccm in charge was also playing around by bouncing some balls to other partners. Noone went to check on me and noone bothered to help me. I was out there for a long time. I suppose it's my fault for not going into the store and bitching at them but oh well, I had a sucky ass day. Lot's of favoritism in this store. Do you all go through this sometimes? Sorry for the long rant. I sure do complain a lot.

You're from Brownsville, right? Well, you should know that HEB (like most jobs) is very political. Sucking up DOES help :) I never did that, but I was always polite and professional. Wait, I still am, or at least I try to be o_O.

It just sounds like management at your store isn't too good. It doesn't make sense for them to tell you to come in later if you're calling in.

Also, if you were coming in two hours earlier than planned you were entitled to an additional break and a possible lunch. Did you get it? Unless they changed your schedule in pinpoint, you really weren't "required" to clock in at 3:30.

What you should try is just having better communication with your managers. As a future cashier, you won't have to do carts anymore, but they might forget to give you a break or send you home. I was doing schedules a few weeks ago, and a cashier politely asked me when I walked by if I was going to send someone in for her. It was 30 minutes after she was supposed to be out. Someone had already hilighted her name off as if she was gone for the day, so we forgot about her. Mistakes happen sometimes and we're all human.

If things still get worse, you should try talking to your CCOM or store director. And then, if things still aren't better you should call Human Resources. My mom is HR for Brownsville stores, and BOY does she have interesting tales about bad Partners from there o___O!!!!
Yeah, I worked 8 hours that day and did get my lunch and two breaks so it wasn't that bad. Heh@highlighting names. I've gotten highlighted a few times. I was wondering why I wasn't getting my break anytime soon and I finally went up to them and it had listed that I already took a break and that was wrong. Yeah, people make mistakes but they seem to do them a lot here. ~_~ I also hate going up to them when it's time to leave because then it seems they'll think bad of me or something. And sometimes they'll be like, were you supposed to leave an hour ago? and I was like yeah and they're like why didn't you say so? ~_~ And I tell them , well everytime I go up to remind you all, you give me this dirty look and end up telling me can you stay 30 more minutes? That's another thing that bothers me, they don't bother to ask. I know that I work for HEB and that I'm supposed to give good impressions but hey, sometimes I have places to go or my rides will be there already to pick me up. I'll be glad to stay but please ask us. I complain a lot. ~_~ Heh, they use these little eye and puppy face tricks at times. Like " You're staying for me right?" or can you stay a little bit more (which actually means 2 hours) >_>; I don't mind really. Heh, in the long run, I'm getting hours. But it's just weird over here sometimes.
yeah sometimes they can be mean about scheduling. one time i came home around 3:15 and there was a huge problem with my dog that was going to require me to take her to the animal hospital. i called in and asked if i could come a few hours late (my shift was supposed to be from 3:45 to 12:15) but they refused. i had to call my mom and she had to leave her hair appointment with dye still in her hair to come get her. it sucked. you gotta stand up for yourself, man! its really helpful to keep the line of communication open when it comes to scheduling - they can be more understanding than you think. they have forgotten my breaks before, but its ok. we're all only human.
