Will I get fired? How do I fix this issue?
Permalink   


I started working at Kroger a little over 2 weeks ago. I've showed up each day and I've followed all the rules, and my fellow coworkers have expressed to me that I seem to be a great learner after memorizing clicklist duties. 

I got my official schedule, and I took a picture of the next week with my shifts. Yesterday I had work, and looking at the calendar for this week, it says "off" for the first day. Because I had work yesterday, today should/would be my "off" day right? Apparently not. I misread it as Sunday being off. Apparently I was supposed to be there today, but never called or showed up. They called around fifteen minutes after my just shift started, and I only just listened to it (many hours later). I thought the shift for today was for tomorrow. I tried calling the number my supervisor used, but it's just the main kroger line that customers call. I don't know what to do right now, should I just show up in the morning tomorrow like I thought I was supposed to, or do I call someone? I'm scared I'll get fired from this. I'm completely okay with getting yelled at scolded, but I really need this job.

Show up and tell them what happened, most likely you'll get a warning and the day will carry on.

Call and speak to the Store Manager that is there right now, then you can at least say you called and spoke to someone as soon as you say the VM.

They don't generally fire over a single no-call no-show.

No biggie.  Just don't make a habit of it.

First: No. You won't get fired.

Second: It's great that you have a solid work ethic and that you obviously care about your job----but hide that anxiety q u i c k. Managers smell that sh!t like a dog sniffs a crotch, and they'll use it against you and keep you miserable for every extra ounce of work they can squeeze from you.

Even though you got the scheduled confused you'll get a day suspension for your first no call no show.  Happened with a new guy at my store.

Generally the rule of thumb is call in to let them know you'll be out as a courtesy rule.  I found a lot of times places will not give the legal 48 hours shift change notice.  This is what got me at my second location.  I kept getting harassed for missing shifts when I found they kept penciling in shifts without telling me.  You can union fight this if they do it.  Most likely you'll get a verbally why didn't you call warning. I wouldn't worry about it too much.  Unless you desperately need the job.  As you're a new hire I image you're earning minimum wage just go to another business and pick up another.  You do not have enough time with the company to make it worth while to sweat about it on your resume.  Six months or more is the general rule of thumb before listing it on a resume.  I lightly volunteer so I generally say I was volunteering heavily during this time frame and living off savings.  For example...
