A Dark Journey Into The Bowels of America's Corporate StupidStore and Other Commentary About The Absurdity of Life In A World Going To Hell
Just had a store meeting 2 weeks ago. Same old bullshit. More managers and the GM's doing less in the store. No teamwork due to scrimping on hours, store shelves dusty as hell, and no maintenance of the store. Basically they spend a dollar to save a penny Unfortunately most of the associates who gave a shit have either quit or been fired.
Correction. New Sales/ Operations manager and GM doing more work. Other management staff promoted from within. Maybe a good sign
Um promotion from within? What about the 50% of managers that got let go?
I amend my comment. SOPBS.
Pencils has just completed major store restructuring with massive layoffs of full timers and managers. I'm not sure how they managed to keep it from the press. They seemed to have mostly adbandoned the "JIVE" program, in favor of, once again, hammering customers about worthless computer work and extended service plans. They're running customers away in droves, they will never figure it out...they are doomed.
I just keep shoveling the shit as much as I can stand. Other than that IDGAS
Potential new scam on Pencils associates. Pencils is forcing associates to to either direct deposit their paycheck or have it put on a pay card. I smell class action lawsuits. McDonalds has been sued over the pay card issue because of ridiculous fees charged against the employees pay cards
Its true. I got charged all kinds of bogus fees. Thats why i have a real job now and work at pencils part time for beer money
Promotion from within to GM is dead if you started out as a computer tech. Not me but a friend of mine. Pencils sucks and blows at the same time. F U P
May the resellers rot in hell. These bastards come into the store and buy up all the product at discounted prices because of gift cards and we have no product left for other customers.
Pencils sells those going out of business signs, great irony.
25 hours a week MAX for part timers. It's absolute BULLSHIT. Store shrink going up because the real team work concept died years ago. It's all pile on the closers of office supplies and tech.
