My hard work is not paying off!

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I have been working so hard and trying to do a great job at work so that I can have a good review and a raise to go with it.

Well the review was today and it went the opposite way than I thought. I got written up for wrong cash handling and have been warn that if this continues I am out of a job. The only good thing that came out of this degrading review was that I am great with the customers and that they do notice that I don't stand around waiting for them to tell me what to do. I get the job done. They have noticed how I am always cleaning the area around the cash desks and the shelves in front of it.

So I am going to take this positive note and let the negative slip by me. I know that I am a great cashier and that I give back the correct change at every transactions. I am so careful with money handling that I was so shock to hear that on some of my shift my cash was short.

I know that this is not me because everyone uses the same cashier registers that I am on. We all have our own log in ID's and we have to log out when some one else take over.

I do know on a couple of occasions that I have forgotten to log out and someone has used my # so this is what I think has happen. That the other cashier handled the money wrong.

So Lesson learned. I will make dang sure that I log off every single time I leave my cash desk even if I am only going a few feet away to clean another cash desk or shelf or to stock up a shelf.

I left work feeling degraded and upset with myself and all I wanted to do was to quite but you all know me.

I am not going to quite. I am going to show them that I am not the one who is handling the cash wrong and losing the company money.

I am also going to continue to take notes on every void or cash problems that I have so that I have something to fall back on.

So unfortunately when John came to pick me up I was an emotional wreck and all I said to him was that I had a very bad day and I don't want to talk about it.

I still don't but I know that if I don't write this down I won't be able to sleep tonight and I certainly won't be able to be in a good fame of mind to go to work tomorrow.

Oh by the way I won't be getting that raise that I thought that I deserve because of this bad money handling. I am sure a few others won't be getting their either.

So while I am still working for this company I am still looking for a new job. One that treats me with respect and pays me for what I am worth and not to degrade me in front of other associates just to make them feel superego.

So that is all I have to say on this matter and I wish you all a good night.

I hope that by having a good night sleep I will wake up in a better mood and can face another day at work.

I can and will do it for I am stronger now that I was since I started Sparks.

So I thank you for reading this blog and I thank you for all your comments and prayers that you will be sending me.

So good night and sweet dreams.

The only good thing that came out of this day was that I finished another stuff Owl. I spent the last four hours crocheting and sewing up the little guy.

Like I have said in many of my older blogs, Crocheting/knitting is therapy for me. Thank goodness for that or I would be paying through the nose instead getting paid for making up something cute for my customers.

    So sorry! I have not been getting your blog notifications!

    Sounds like we are all getting a bad rap from work!

    i had my performance review and a discipline issue was brought up , unfairly and out of context! I also left upset and wanted to quit! But I cannot afford to at the moment.

    Just hang in there and log out every time you move away from the register!

    Oh, Sandra! Here I have been trying to catch up with Sparking and this is the first blog I've read of yours in over a week. So SAD for you to have to deal with this! This is NOT what you needed, that's for sure! I am so sorry, and I wish I could give you a big hug. Hang in there, my friend. Truth always wins in the end, even if we can't tell for a long time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I will be praying for you, as I've had bad reviews too. I have a teacher, who does not like me and she gives me bad reviews, but I have been with the school district 13+ years. This teacher is being promoted and so God moved her! God will help. So I am hoping that this year coming I will get a good review as the students and other teachers like me. I am doing summer school and hope that I get a good review with that too. God does care and He will help you. I am praying so! Perhaps some minor adjustments like you thought of will help or perhaps God will move somone like He is with my situration!

    Many times people look for just one thing that they can use to keep from giving you a raise. Hope this wasn't made up. They should have brought it to your attention any time your register was not right. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Enjoy your days off.

    So very sorry to hear about your review :(( That is unfortunate if others use your register under your name and messed it up for you. Really tough lesson to watch your till more carefully :( But it was a mostly positive review and would have been great except cash handling is so vitally important it overshadowed the good.
    We all know you are a conscientious worker and do deserve employment where that would be appreciated and rewarded. I wish you all the best finding something better, but know its so very hard :((
    Its so very important to look after yourself when you are emotionally stressed or you could get run down and sick, so please take special care of you,

    Sorry to hear that your review didn't go as well as you'd hoped. I personally think that all employers find "something" wrong with the employees just so they don't have to give them a raise!

    Great job on the customer service part. That can be tough sometimes!

    I'm sorry you had such a hard day Sandra; I know how hard you try. I have no doubt that things will get better.

    I'm so sorry it went so badly for you. You are in my prayers. One good thing that happened is that now you will remember to log out each time you leave the register and they will find out who it really is. Hang in there, but just in case, good luck looking for something else. These things happen from time to time so focus on the good and remember the bad so no one else can make it worse for you. I hope today is better for you. HUGS!
