Got my first payslip, boom
Today we had an unworn pair of fleece lined ladies boots in, with original labels on stating a price of £49.99, and the woman argued with the price of £8. We also having people changing price labels/stickers, knowing that we have to charge the price stated on the ticket.
The amount of empty hangers we find as well from people stealing clothing is disgusting.
I do feel bad for this woman from work. There’s no manager at the shop at the minute. She went for the position but didn’t get it, but now she’s being asked to perform the role of the manager until they find a replacement. The reason she text me is to see if I can cover her days off, as she’s been told it’s up to her to organise cover. I feel bad that I can’t :( plus it pays more than the shoe shop job, and is generally less demanding, so I’d probably prefer to do extra shifts there.
Just had a text from the acting manager at my SUNDAY job, asking me of the area manager has told me what days I’m down to work next week. I’m guessing it’s SUNDAY as that is what I’m contracted to? I asked if there was the possibility of overtime when I had my interview, and was told that would be very unlikely, which is why I’ve had to take my second job in the week. But now it seems like I’m being difficult by not being flexible.
Up before 9 on my day off, tackled the mountain on pots and pans and hung the washing out. It’s amazing how much more energy you have when you’re in a routine and busy doing stuff.
Working all weekend, woo!
So beautiful. Such a good day for photography :)
Day 2 at the shoe shop/first shop floor shift: COMPLETE! Had lots of nice customers and only 1 mardy one. I had one elderly lady tell one of the other advisors how lovely and helpful I’d been, and another guy, who, upon finding out I didn’t get commission for sales, made a point of seeking out my supervisor in order to praise my ‘excellent customer service skills’ which was pretty darn nice. He also asked me if this was my first job since leaving school, as he thought I was 16 (Y)
The only bad point of today is that after another 9 hour shift, my feet are a ball of blisters. I had to buy shoes from work as part of my uniform and they are NOT COMFY AT ALL.
