Stories

I am a former bookseller who was there for twelve years. I loved the job, but left because I was being forced out. I got a not at standards evaluation, followed by two IPs. The accusations came out of nowhere. I had to leave or else I would have been terminated due to poor job performance. SM manufactured things, ASM and MM went along. SM had favorites who could do anything.

I would like to hear from others with similar stories and also from curremt booksellers who are facing the same treatment.

Yes, the same thing happened to me!
yBack in 2004, the Manager who had promoted me was transferred, and a new manager and assistant manager came in. The new assistant manager was nasty to me, made impossible expectations of me, and threw blame at me a lot. Then he called me on the carpet about 100-odd computer book returns he said I'd missed. I was so puzzled. When I heard the PDT beep, I returned the book. I was so sure there had to be extenuating circumstances, but I did not get the benefit of the doubt from him at all. He was probably just lying. I kept thinking it would get better if I worked harder, but it only got worse. This manager was always scolding me like I was a bad little boy. Well, in 2006 the store closed, and I was told that I wasn't capable of working at the other stores, and that I should take severance pay.Well, a bell went off in my head-I WAS BEING SET UP THE WHOLE TIME!
