It’s always hard to find someone that is willing to work on the weekends.
Most employees request 1 of those days off every week.
It’s hard to make a schedule when so several people request days off. I don’t mind accommodating a few requests, but the employees are starting to request every weekend off. As a store director, 1 of the most difficult parts of our job is trying to find employees that are willing to work on Friday and Thursday. I hired a couple of up-to-date people Last month and I particularally told them that they would have to work weekends, then neither 1 of the employees objected to working on the weekends. In fact, I particularally told each up-to-date hire that they should count on working every weekend until after Chruistams at least. I busy both of the employees last weekend and the weekend after that. Then I started to acquire complaints about the schedule and working every weekend. Somebody has to work the weekend shift. I can’t keep letting the crew of the cannabis dispensary railroad me. The busiest days at the cannabis dispensary are Wednesday, Friday, and Thursday. I need employees that want to work whether it’s the weekend or the middle of the day on Thursday. I have a couple of incentive plans and ideas, but I sincerely shouldn’t have to bribe our employees to do the job they were hired to complete. If I start cutting hours, I bet more people will volunteer; Unfortunately that means working short on some of our busiest days of the week.
