With changes in management at the start of the year, policies and procedures were changed for seemingly no reason other than the arrival of a new department head wanting to control optics, leaving workers scurrying to catch up with no real understanding of why we were abandoning functioning procedures for halfbaked ones. Lack of experience and direction from department heads left workers feeling unsupported and wayward. Minor positions like receptionist or cashier are not filled so the responsibilities of those positions fall on other team members. This means more work than can be done within your stipulated shift, resulting in management seeming disappointed that you either have unfinished tasks or no interest in working overtime to complete them. As an employee not in a management position, you're left with the overall feeling that your hard work is not appreciated and you can be replaced at any time by someone more "malleable". It quickly became very apparent that unless you were a friend of, or previously employed by, the general manager, or willing to devote all of your personal time to the organization, it was unlikely that you were going to fit in with the "big picture" or have a long-term position here.
Good hard-working teammates you can count on
