Well meaning but short sighted
My managers at the Marshalls store in Leesburg, VA were very flexible when it came to scheduling in spite of corporate policies, but seemed to value TJX credit card applications over customer experiences and employee happiness. Almost every week my manager(s) would berate to the other employees about there not being enough credit card applications to meet our quotas. On top of that there was no way of compensating for employee absences. If an employee was off/absent on a particular day who had a specific job to perform, that job would be left incomplete until they arrived again. Also as a side note, it seemed there was no ruling regarding cleaning the break-room. If they just addressed all these simple problems rather than giving excuses I would not have left.
45 minute lunch breaks, could easily call-out sick, 15 minute part-time breaks
Employees didn't compensate for missing members
