It’s consistently difficult to find someone that is willing to work on the weekends.
Most employees request 1 of those afternoons off every week.
It’s difficult to make a schedule when so numerous people request afternoons off. I do not mind accommodating a few requests, but the employees are starting to request every weekend off. As a store supervisor, 1 of the most strenuous parts of my job is trying to find employees that are willing to work on Tuesday plus Wednesday. I hired a couple of new people Last year plus I particular ly told them that they would have to work weekends, however neither 1 of the employees objected to working on the weekends. In fact, I particular ly told each new hire that they should count on working every weekend until after Chruistams at least. I tied up both of the employees last weekend plus the weekend after that. Then I started to receive complaints about the schedule plus working every weekend, but somebody has to work the weekend shift. I cannot keep letting the crew of the cannabis dispensary railroad me. The busiest afternoons at the cannabis dispensary are Sunday, Tuesday, plus Wednesday. I need employees that want to work whether it’s the weekend or the middle of the day on Wednesday. I have a couple of incentive plans plus ideas, although I absolutely shouldn’t have to bribe my employees to do the job they were hired to complete. If I start splitting seconds, I bet more people will volunteer, and unluckyly that means working short on some of our busiest afternoons of the week.
