And the work fun continues....

[rant]

Well, I am not a fan of my job. Nope, I don't like it at all. But I guess it's better than not getting paid.

...Oh wait. I didn't get paid. It seems that for the 2nd time in as many months, the Corporate office had neglected to send my store it's paychecks. Our checks were due to us on the 23rd. All the other stores were getting theirs a bit late, so at first we were not too worried. At 3pm, we were getting anxious as the banks would be closing in a bit, and all of us needed to deposit our checks. We called payroll in Phoenix, asking if everything was ok, and they told us not to call back until 4pm. Cool, no problem.

4pm rolls around and now we are having a problem. Our checks had still not arrived, and we were getting really nervous. first we called the carrier company who delivered our checks. They had no record of them even being sent to us! We called payroll at a little after 4pm....and they were closed! Nobody was there to find where our pay was. Bastards.

Now I had to pay my car payment on the 23rd. Needless to say that it was not paid. Add all the bills and things that the other people I work with are now having to pay late and you have a big problem as far as late fees and credit rating stuff. ....Just so mad....

GRRRRrrrrr....

As an employer, myself, I often wonder how the big corps ended up being successful big corps by mistreating the hire help? After all, the employees do have obligations that need to be filled. But, they always seem to turn away from those issues when confronted.


This is just a guess from what I read....but:
I know that we are going though some hard times, economically and I know some businesses want to skirt that issue, hoping things will pick up. Some businesses will pull cheap little ploys, similar perhaps of what you are going through, to keep the business afloat. Keep a sharp eye out for the little things, namely cutbacks. You may - and I say only "may", because of the situation, you'll know what to do - want to be prepare for some economically consequences. As I said, I don't know the whole situation. But, it nevers hurts to be prepared for the harder times. If harder times don't pan out, then you'll have some "mad money" to go toy with. Just make sure you don't spend it all.

Trey,
I hope the best for you. It's hard to buy groceries and pay rent from an "stealth paycheck". At lease I hope I helped in some way. Hang in there. Payday is coming ......... and if that fails (which it won't) I do live close enough to do what DONUT KING suggested (just kidding). Whew! I can see it now. 6:00 news and I'm on it.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap .................

I used to work for a company like that. Oh, our checks would always come, but how high would they bounce? It was an omen of the company finally going under...
