Over the weekend we had a sale and my job is to set it up in 2 departments (there’s 9 of us and we all have our own department to set up and take down) and yesterday I had to take down the sale in my department. As any human I made mistakes yesterday and sales in one of my departments were low compared to last year.
This morning, the store manager called me out over the store speakers in front of everyone in the store (and she made it sound like she was talking to a 5-year-old) and made it seem as if it was ENTIRELY my fault. It’s not because I’m not the only one that has to deal with that department. There is the merchandisers who put the stuff out on the floor for customers to purchase as well as the people who mark them down to the lowest price 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% etc.
The thing with markdowns is that whoever does it leaves it where they marked them instead of putting them together. I’m not there 24/7 and the mistakes are not all my fault, but of course, if it doesn’t get signed I get thrown under the bus. I hate that bitch sometimes.
