My new manager gave me the nickname "turtle" because I'm "slow at doing everything"...I'm the fastest cashier in the store, I just take my leisurely time if its not something that needs to be done in a hurry.
The cashiers in one store I was in all called me asshole. They wanted to hang out and talk and I made them work. They all signed a petition to get me fired because they hated me so badly. They went above the store management to the district manager. He had a meeting with me after he talked to most of the front end and the management. Asked me what I thought about it. I told him “I’m here to get the work done. I’m not here to be liked by the cashiers. If they are my friends I’m not a boss.”
I walked out of that meeting with a $1 an hour raise. They were so pissed off I wasn’t fired. I didn’t have the heart to tell them about the raise.
