Working Retail: Supervising….

I hate being a supervisor. I hate my supervisors.

I have to babysit other employees, full grown adults that should be able to take care of themselves and do their jobs without constant watching.

I get micromanaged by new managers who think that micromanaging will change how much I get shit done daily.

It’s infuriating.

I can’t do my job if I’m having to spend half my day hand-holding adults who don’t want to act like adults, as well as taking the initiative to get every other little thing done because anyone who’s been there longer than 3 years doesn’t feel like they need do anything outside of their literal job description.

And when I have to take 5 minutes out of every hour to explain what my daily task list is to my managers, that eats up a lot of time through out my day. Or having to do every other little task for my managers because its above a salaried member of management to do some tasks apparently, like taking care of trash or playing the clean-up crew for the previous shift, or taking the hits because the previous shift left us a shit show to deal with.

Maybe it’s because in my previous jobs I was spoiled by managers that understood what I could accomplish in a day and they listened to my input and didn’t treat me like a dumb kid.

But if I’m not living up to all of their expectations, why don’t they just can me? Oh that’s right, they won’t can their little errand girl because then they’ll have to do everything themselves.

I think if my managers laid off a bit and the people I had to supervised acted like adults, then maybe I wouldn’t walk into work every single day looking to throw blows and scream from the top of my lungs every single time I hear a stupid ass question.
