I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. I tried to continue to work diligently, and be a good employee despite all the shit that has been going on at work. But ultimately, management could care less.
Today, I showed up for work, worked two hours, and then was sent home, and stripped of my attendance bonus for the remainder of this pay period. This was all done despite the fact that I have never had any attendance problems, and have consistently exceeded my sales goals. Yesterday I had 5 sales, putting me at 15% conversion, which is currently 4% over the group average. Today, in the two hours I was there I had two more sales.
Despite all this, those assholes had the nerve to send me home, and fuck with my paycheck. Needless to say, I am livid. I am updating my resume tonight, and taking a look at job listings on Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, and Yahoo! Hot Jobs.
Today I went in to work to find a skeleton crew remaining to man the office. Many of my supervisors were now doing more shifts on the phone to help make up for the reps that got laid off. I was also kept quite busy, and ended my day with 5 sales.
At one point during my day at work I was called into a meeting where I was informed that one of my companies 4 offices would soon be closing, and that we are basically in competition with our other offices as to which of us get to stay open. The office than puts up the worst numbers gets closed.
I was also informed that if you fail to make a sale during your work day, you will be suspended for the next day, and lose all your bonuses for that pay period. I haven’t had a day without sales thus far, however I am not pleased by the fact that one bad day could cost me so dearly. I think if that happens to me I am likely to start looking for jobs elsewhere. We shall see how it goes.
