  •  Oh yeah. (4+ / 0-)
    Now I work at another company that pays people the absolute minimum and tells them which hours they must work. Plus, you get negative attendance points if you show up 3 minutes late for your shift. This company spends a huge amount on training people. There’s a training class that lasts two weeks and a lot of people quit the job after working a week or two or a month or two (which means they have to hire and train new people). It’s fucking insane. And morale is very low, as you might expect.
    Where I work is somewhere between the two, except for the low pay part.

    But it's a revolving door in terms of employees. My store has a core of long-term workers, including me, but the newbies tend to burn out quickly.

    It probably would have helped if someone had trained our manager in how to hire good people....
