Went through three mangers, empty promises, and stressful work environment
SALES LEAD (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – August 6, 2018
I worked there for a year. When I was trained, it was half-assed, I had to train myself. I went through three managers, ran the store by myself and one other co-worker, who mind you, didn't like the fact that she was being scheduled so much, for two months. Was promised the ASM (assistant store manager) position if had past the assignment. Passed it, but it took me three months to hear back from my DM about it. Was even told that if I didn't get the position that I would at least get a raise. But nothing happened. I find out that my current manager sat there and lied to my face about pushing for me to get that promotion. And then was getting paid the exact same amount (because Oregon put their min wage up to $12) as someone with no work experience.
I was forced to work open-closes because when someone would up and quit without giving notice those shifts were giving to me because my manager didn't know how to be a manager.
Working for Things Remembered was awful. I shouldn't feel dread, anxiety, or stress at my workplace. I understand that at most jobs, you'll have times of stress and stuff, but not ever shift. I shouldn't be made to feel guilty because I was finally putting my foot down about not overworking myself because I was only part-time. They refused to fulfill their promises, so I refused to their puppet.
