who the hell knew it would suck so bad being fired, it not eve like I loved my job or anything but I just feel like I failed. I worked at Yankee Candle for two months (almost three) knowing that there was a no late policy. firt time I was late was maybe my 3rd or 4th day there, I had the wrong times down all thouth the mager gave me those times. and the las two times I was late by one or two minutes. One time I was standing behind the comper when one of the ladies was ringing somone up and I was late then cause HELLO I couldn’t get to the computer.
Luckily my assistant manager changed my time for me.
This is how it basically went today: I came in ON TIME at 3 clocked in and I put on my apperin. the stand in manager (who I never met) told me about today and my sales goal, he put me on a task to take what ever the hell that was on a cart up and away. as I did so I went to the back and he told me it was time for my 45 day review so I put some other things up and I sat down.
and i was fired basically.
he told me at the being of our talk what I was being judged on and asked me how I thought I was doing. I told him “I think I am doing all right” since I usually made my sale goal (or what was close to it). Nothing else was talked about other then m being late. No how I interacted with costumers, sales, how I worked with everyone else. None of that. Only I had been late.
When I called my nana crying (shit I was up set) she came and got me and drove straight to the store and probably cussed out the manager and the assistant manager (I tried to talk her out of it) and then drove me home. Apparently the stand in manager was under the impression I was late five times when I was late only 3 times.
My nana did have a point when she asked (she told me this when she got back in the car) how come I was to work to day, when he knew my review was coming up and I was to be terminated?
Now that I am home all of these other things are popping into my head that I SHOULD HAVE asked but didn’t because I was so upset. I didn’t cry in the store which I am proud of myself for; I smiled and said goodbye and left. I made it down to the other store when I started to cry.
I just feel like I failed, I spent 5 months looking for a job and only had it for 2 months. Not like I liked my job anyway….. I just hate failing. Now I am back in my dark place like I was 3 or 4 months ago.
my classes back at my tech college is starting monday so I’ll have something to focus on.
AIN’T THAT THE TRUTH!!!!
