I once had a manager who didn't like me that much, but the customers loved me and kept saying so, and now I have that manager's old job. Positive feedback is so rare in customer service. It's 99% complaints about stuff that isn't your fault. But those few kind words from customers helped me get through some hellish shifts and advance in my career.
Edit: Obvs this will vary from workplace to workplace and it can be inconvenient for the employee and manager in question if they're super busy at that moment. Comment consensus tips are: keep praise vague (they may have skirted policy to take care of you), mention the employee by name, fill out any survey on the receipt or at the end of the phone call with max scores and the employee's name so there's a record, tell the employee why you're asking for the manager so they don't get scared, leave a great name-drop review in online spaces, if sliding into the dms of a corporate account be sure to include the store location along with the employ... keep reading on reddit ➡
She has posted that on LS Discord, screenshot
Transcription: > Hi @everyone I am just here to give a small(ish) update on Nick (LS). I am not allowed to disclose every single detail at the moment so please bear with me here. I'm not even sure if Nick wants me to post this but I feel as if it is extremely important to try and keep you guys somewhat aware of what is going on. > > Mentally, Nick is not okay. He has been working day and night for months now, with little to no sleep, and it has undoubtedly taken a toll on his health. To anyone who asks me to check up on him; we talk every single day. I try my best to make sure he is doing okay, but as of recently with all of the "stuff" going around, everything has just heightened his emotions and there's not much any of us can do in the current situation. > > We are not sure as to when Nick will come back to streaming, but we hope that you can all be patient and understand that he is no... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am a system administrator for a medium sized pharmaceutical company. I work out of one of our larger sites and a smaller site about two and a half hours away has been without any IT staff almost a month . They have put in zero effort into finding replacements for the staff that quit. Once a week I will travel to the site for a 12-hour day of helping them out with it stuff. Outside of that time period, I was told specifically by my manager in no uncertain terms to not touch anything at that site. He said if you get an email or a phone call from somebody at that site, ignore it.
This site has a ticketing system address that they are supposed to be sending their requests to about a week and a half ago somebody at the site must have just told them to start emailing me directly because within 3 days I had almost 50 direct emails from people there, all marked "Important" of course, with requests. As directed, I ignore every single one . I don't have time to manage both my site and that... keep reading on reddit ➡
They were told ahead of time to staff up for another round of essential workers getting boned.
An Executive HR Manager was getting married last year and everyone was EXPECTED to donate towards their honeymoon between $50-$100 because they could not afford it (Around Christmas time). First things first, hell nah. Secondly, this manager makes triple my salary so, again, hell nah.
I replied, no thank you kindly in the group chat. Not because I didn’t want to but because of the principle. Well I guess I started a whole to do because people started backing out. Well needless to say, he was upset about the amount of money he received (less than $6,000) and had to reduce his honeymoon days from 20 to 14 (omg, first world problems).
Fast forward to COVID and a coworker, notably makes less than him, conceived twins after a drunk unprotected night with her husband. They were completely unprepared, just got married 8 months prior and was not trying. People asked if we could donate $10-$25 towards helping her. I got irritated by this. So you are willing to ask people to donate $50-$100 f... keep reading on reddit ➡
No discussion really, just wanted to share. I'm still a bit dumbfounded.
It's like walking in to a cop shop and asking for a licence to sell this pound of cocaine in your bag.
Throwaway for obvious reasons.
My coworker (40sM) and I (26F) are the only two people in our workplace on the overnight shift. He is biologically male, identifies as male, but insists on always using the women's restroom because "[he's] gay". I have absolutely no problem with him using the women's restroom - we are the only two people on shift, and there are bigger things to worry about in this world than which toilet someone uses.
He regularly leaves a huge mess behind when he goes to the restroom (won't flush the toilet, urinates on the floor, leaves coffee/toothpaste residue on the sink, huge water/soap puddles on the counter/floor, paper towels everywhere except the bin). I've asked him multiple times to please clean up after himself, but he hasn't. I usually just clean the restroom myself, because I don't want to cause trouble, but some days I get too busy with my normal job tasks to check the restroom before I leave.
Our manager (40sF) inspects the restrooms after we le... keep reading on reddit ➡
To set the scene I used to work for a phone network in the UK in the late naughties as a shop salesman.
The company had an problem with declining sales as they thought themselves better then others and people would pay the privilege of being with them (well the public didn’t and it showed). Of course head office couldn’t comprehend this and along with a string of draconian measures they insisted that if you missed any one of your 21 key targets each month, You had to travel to wherever your area manager was and explain in person why you failed and how you will correct this for next month. (And if you didn’t they started disciplinary proceedings).
I and a lot of other staff realised the colossal mistake they made in the wording. First off we could choose when to travel to them and the company had to by law pay for it. (They even said they would pay travel and “other expenses in the announcement and linked to the government website stating it)
Cue the maliciousness! I had actually t... keep reading on reddit ➡
About six years ago on a Saturday night, I was hitting up a concert with some friends. Now this venue had two parts. The main part was a restaurant/bar with a big outdoor venue that could fit about 1,500 people, and across the street was the second venue that could fit about 1,000. I got confused as to which venue I was heading to, accidentally parked at the main venue, saw my mistake, and walked across the street to the intended venue.
Now I had worked late that day and couldn’t go home and change, so I was wearing a black polo shirt and black pants. After my concert ends, I walk back across the street to the main venue where I had parked, I try to take a shortcut around the building, only to find myself blocked my temp fences and barricades. I look to my left and see a couple of tour buses, I towards those, and manage to walk in between them.
I find myself in a loading/staging area with some hospitality tents and people walking around, while I’m hearing a band playing really clos... keep reading on reddit ➡
