Fuck my employee
I’m an assistant manager of a very popular optical chain in Arizona. I have this employee (20f) who does not understand that my manager and I will only help her if she is a good employee. I transferred to this new location in October2016 and so far she has called out more time than anyone I’ve ever worked with. She has multiple excuses car, child, herself and every time she calls out, she’s always on Facebook posting about her day which usually isn’t bad. She recently got a new boyfriend even though she’s legally still married who (I’m guessing) is the reason she’s calling out Every Friday.
Anyway the actual story. About 2 months ago, she asked to transfer to a location that was closer to her because she was getting a divorce from her (STILL soon to be) husband. That’s fine right? Yeah totally. my manager and I talk to our district manager, find her a location, and plan everything. Suddenly she says she doesn’t want to go. Okay, cool. So we cancel and apologize to our DM. Fast forward a week ago, she tells me that she’s been talking to the DM for a few weeks and she’s going to be transferring in 2 weeks. Ok. 2 problems. 1) I called my manager and she hadn’t heard anything about it. So she went above our heads without permission. 2) i called my DM and she said they had only talked about it today not a few weeks ago.
OKAY! So she gives her 2 weeks notice required to move, but everyday this week she has been late or has called out and not doing her job very well. (Even though she wasn’t that good to begin with). Aside from that she is making huge mistakes with insurance companies, cussing in front of patients, being on her phone while talking to patients directly in front of her, leaving early without our permission, and having personal conversations filled with sex in front of patients. Overall she’s a terrible employee who thinks we will help her after making us deal with a fully booked schedule by ourselves which is near impossible. I can’t wait for next Saturday when she leaves and gets a big slap in the face that the manager at that store has a 0 tolerance level for anything unprofessional.
