I’m a key holder/shift lead at the “"fun”“ low-priced store. Just before everything shut down, my SM moved to a new location. I texted him a few days ago and have now been told that
1) Old SM can’t tell me when the store will reopen
2) New SM or our DM would be able to give me that info
3) he can’t give me their contact information because it can only be given out to current employees (which is only DMs and SMs now) and
4) they /might/ contact me within the month.
It’s a big ole loop of being kept in the dark!
What worries me is that this is the same store that has a history of firing people without any warning or reason. They just get taken off the schedule and one of us shift leads, who has no knowledge of or say in the firing, is put with them on their last day so management never even has to talk to them. I’m worried I’m being given this run around because I’ve been officially laid off and nobody will tell me. (Which I would be okay with… I just need to know so I can update unemployment and start looking for a new post-covid job)
