Do they actually read this?
Permalink   


We have a volunteer sign up sheet to work Thanksgiving. Some people signed up (including me) and put down a specific time frame they can work. I chose a 9am-1pm. A few didn't even sign up. 

My question is this: Does management read the roster or is it just for "show?" Someone told me they schedule people that did not sign up, and they disregard the timeframes people wrote down.

What if you didn't even volunteer? Can you just not show up or call out? And if you did show up can you just leave by the time you wrote being as you did volunteer? (Thinking about leaving at 1pm being as I did volunteer my time)

I've been at kroger for about a year and a half

The schedule is the schedule. If you leave early it will likely be considered abandonment. Normally whoever does your scheduling looked at the sheet and tried to adjust it with what the computer autofilled. It's never going to be clean unless you make it explicitly clear with them what you want/need. The time to bring it up with them and get changes is now, before it gets locked in.

It's more or less put up per union contract. They RARELY EVEN look at it. The only way you can be sure it is seen is if you leave a note manager's desk stating your preferred time. Even then, if they even look at it, they may choose to ignore it 100%. There is nothing you can do about it.
If you lleave at your preferred time, they may write you up.
If your well liked, they may 'look away'

The contract for the Louisville Division says the store will be staffed with volunteers on Thanksgiving Day. If there aren't enough volunteers, then people will be scheduled by inverse seniority.

I don't know if all the stores in all divisions are closed on Thanksgiving, but unless Rodney ****in McMullen has once again found a way for his greedy ass to sponge off of us, the store I work at is going to be closed. And the store I work at is in the Louisville/Mid-South/whatever-it's-called division. And even if it is open, I have two weeks vacation and as sure as God made little green apples, I'm not volunteering at all.

I never volunteer to work. I need to get pay to work for kroger. I've seen few older employees towards their 50s...signed up and never showed up. No job terminated, no warnings, no consequences. Customers got upset, but manager lied to cover them saying they got sick.

We usually tell our new hires still under probation to not worry about the volunteer sheet. It's a 50/50 chance they'll be working or not. If they do get scheduled and staff with more seniority wants to work, then the newbie gets the day switched around.

If the newbie gets the wants the day off and senior staff wants that day off, the newbie gets that day pulled away and they work. 

 

Usually it's not a big deal though being as we close at 6pm on holiday.
