Coming up on my third week without any shifts.
I had to. It’s so fitting.

It is annoying because I want to watch it on TV but The CW keeps deciding to air college basketball week after week. All the shows that normally air are pushed back until after the game.
NO FUCK I CANNOT WATCH SUPERNATURAL ON TV UNTIL LATER TONIGHT BECAUSE THEY DECIDED TO PUT COLLEGE BASKETBALL ON INSTEAD.
TIME TO FIND A STREAM. BAAH
I have been passed my 90-day probationary period for over a week now and a small part of me was hoping that would solve some of the scheduling issues I had at work. As a bagger I am supposed to me getting a minimum of ten hours a week. I am sure that one of the reasons for this rule is so the union can get their $11 a week from the employees.
When the schedule came out on Friday the 21st I was not on it. I went and talked to the customer service manager who told me that it was not a mistake, that this time it was because they did not have the hours to give me. They were cutting hours for every employee at the store, which is apparently something they do every year around this time. I am at the bottom of the food chain, for baggers, so the hours went to people who had been there longer than me,
I did bring up union rules, but that question got evaded like Abra teleporting from a Pokemon battle.
I got in contact with the Shop Steward and she told me that yes, as a bagger I should be getting at least ten hours a week. She told me that would talk to a manager about the situation and to call back the next day for results. When I called back the next day I was told that there was nothing that can be done as the manager told her that I had a restrictive schedule.
Due to this, they don’t have to give me any hours. I do plan on contacting the union for a second option. When I made my school schedule I made it so I could still work the shifts that they wanted me to work.
This entire week? I did not work. I will also not work next week because they still have no hours to give me.
I have been filling out applications, and I plan on filling out more this weekend. I just want a job where I know I am going to get a schedule every single week, where I don’t have to jump through hoops to see if I am going to get hours or not. That is not how it should work for anyone.
