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.

I also rarely took sick days (lost many of them by not using within the year). One day (may have been a Saturday) I had a very bad cold/sore throat so I called early to say I was sick. I was told that two other people had called off before me so I "had to" come in. I did, and felt horrible all day. Should have stayed home & let them write me up. Reviews were BS anyway, since raises only go to a set number of employees and are (unofficially) phased out for longer-term employees, to encourage lower-paid staff to stay longer.
