This coming Sunday I am scheduled to work a 9-5:30 shift and I was looking to switch with someone who was working 7-2 that day. The girl said she'd do it, no problem. I texted the SM early Tuesday afternoon to ask if the switch would be ok. After 24 hours, I called the store to ask about the switch. She said no because the other girl would be too close to 40 hours. Now, including lunch, she'd be getting an extra hour and a half. Right now she's at like 36 hours. So she'd be at 37.5 after taking my shift.
People at my store switch all the time. There are plenty of people really close to 40 hours who take on an extra hour or so and the SM never says anything. I called up Partner Resources to ask if there was a policy about switching shifts and coming close to 40 hours. He looked in the book and didn't find anything. He said they'd open a case anonymously and get back to me within five days.
Ever since we had that snowstorm in the Northeast and I couldn't come in, the SM has been a real pain to me. I truly couldn't get to work! I even called another person to cover and he said he would as soon as he dug his car out. I was scheduled to work 7 - 3 that day. My coverage got there at 11 and they sent him home at 1 since the store was so dead. The SM accused me of "not wanting to work that day, so I just decided not to show up." I called her at 5:30 that morning to say that I was unable to get out of the driveway since I was home alone and could not shovel 24 inches of snow by myself in our long driveway.
Then I needed a particular day off so I left a note for the SM giving two and a half weeks notice that I needed this day off. She comes to me and says that this is the third day I've requested off in three months of being there. I said, "yeah, ok." She said she wouldn't grant me the day off because of this fact. She said if I wanted the day off, to find someone to cover, which I couldn't find anyone. I explained to her that I have a life and that if I need a day off, I'd give an ample amount of notice to her. She said it didn't matter. That if this job was that important to me, I'd do whatever it takes to keep it. Honestly, I don't want this job anymore. I have a decent paying full-time job and I just picked up crapbux for extra cash. But I don't need the extra cash that badly! Unfortunately a certain someone close to me got mad at me when I said I was thinking about quitting. So I feel like I am forced to stay here in order to keep this certain someone from being disappointed in me.
Please offer some advice if you can. Most importantly, is there a policy stating that you can't get too close to 40 hours? I just thought that you couldn't go OVER 40 hours.
Also, is crapbux well known for emotional/psychological abuse to employees?
