Just need to get this off my shoulders. Ugh, sometimes I wish I was a cold, heartless bitch. Having such compassion and caring/worrying may be a gift but it's also a curse. It can screw you over. For those who work in retail and could also go to those who don't work in retail, but let's face it: working sucks. Pretty much is only good to keep a roof over your head and pay bills. Let me explain. I've been working at Home Depot for almost 2 years, before that, at Build A Bear workshop for 6 years.
Anyways, I had my annual review yesterday but what really pissed me off is that the ASM had the nerve and audacity to make it seem as well as tell me I'm doing poorly and need improvement. Not in those exact words, but you get the idea. I'm pretty much a valued employee but it just annoyed me as well as insulted me that on my review it said I'm disrespectful to my peers and customers. FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!
I got defensive about one thing with my head cashier (one time) which was I dunno, a few months ago, only to find that on my review yesterday it implied I'm generally disrespectful and that I need to improve on respecting my peers. WTF????
Oh and let me add that my FES (Front End Supervisor) even though he's new to this store but still, has the nerve to treat me like I don't know what I'm doing. >.<
Ask customers questions like "How may I help you?" "Did you find everything ok?" etc. 0.0 Seriously? I do that. In fact I always engage with the customer and help in any way I can.
Home Depot is a business that looks out for their employees. FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!! Looking out for them my ass. *smh* I noticed over time that the supervisors and department heads play favorites. Fucking unfair. It's like you can't win. You can do an outstanding performance and STILL NOT GET RECOGNIZED! You make one mistake and they hold it against you and penalize you. I feel like no matter how hard I try to do better it's always biting me back. ASSHOLES! All of them are fucking douchebags.
Look out for yourself and only yourself. So I don't really care anymore. I'm only working for the money. Sounds selfish, but I think I have every right to be.
