So I've been at my job for a month now and last night was my 3rd time being called into the manager's office. The 1st time I went to the manager's office because I wasn't feeling well and wanted to see if I could leave early. The store manager told me that if I could stick it out til the morning that would be great. She also said that she felt like I didn't appreciate my job and that I didn't like being there although she has only met me twice. She was the one who hired me and then I saw her that night.She said when she hired me, she felt like I wasn't the right candidate for the job. I was shocked but sucked it up and went back to work.
The 2nd time was when the support manager called me to the office about zoning (making sure everything is pulled to the front of the shelves and looks presentable), and not covering other people's breaks (it was an honest mistake). He also said that he felt like I didn't want to be there and that I was dragging my feet getting work done when in my eyes I felt like I was doing okay.
The 3rd time was last night. The assistant manager called me to the office and asked me to rate my productivity. I told her I felt like I was doing fine. She told me that after being there for a month she expected me to know how to sort the returns baskets properly and get all other work done in a timely manner.
Last night was busy, with about 10-12 customers per line and there were only 3 cashiers, one who was not on the registers so in between trying to run register and getting returns done, I ran a little behind.
She told me that she was putting me on notice and that if I didn't improve within the next month, I would be terminated. I am trying my hardest at this job and yet all it seems like is I get criticized. Speeding up yes I can do that but the main concern everyone is talking to me is about my attitude towards the work.
They all say that I act like I don't want to be there or get the work done. When given an assignment, I start on it and get it done. They say I show no enthusiasm about my work. I didn't know I was supposed to jump up and down. I don't understand how I can show that I am happy about getting work to do I guess. I'm confused, frustrated and mad. Advice please?? Thanks ladies.
