We just hired 6 high school kids at my Kmart store. Boy howdy, they are annoying... They constantly talk to each other, take extended breaks, watch "videos" in the bathroom, and don't bother looking for anything when doing reshop. Two of them decided to go to McDonald's on their 15-minute break, and didn't come back for 55 minutes. Store manager said she wouldn't fire them because "I want to give them a chance." Do we really need to give "chances" to these kids who consstantly flood the employee's mens room with the urinal? Do we really need to give "chances" to these kids who TALK ON THEIR PHONE while ringing out customers?
Store manager won't fire them because they all family members, and it "would make it awkward" and because only 2 of the 6 drive. But who am I kidding? Our store manager looks the other way when the front-end lead purchases penny merchandise and other "damaged" merchandise, and rejected claims merchandise while she sells it on eBay. Hell, the ASM brings in her 12-year old daugter to help her organize layaways!
