Low-level retail workers are not allowed to think for themselves. They'll be fired if they don't follow corporate demands exactly. I don't know if you want to make a generational war about this, but let me point out what age the corporate weenies probably are. . .Gen Y...nuts.
аre there really no others who want to take this vacancy?Can anyone explain why emptying a full trash can is so difficult? The problem tech at work had a full biohazard trash can in one of her assigned areas. It was full on Friday when I used it and it just got even more full over the weekend. The tech signed off as checking the room this morning. Every box on the sheet was checked including "check trash can". I used the room later in the morning. Trash can was close to spilling trash onto the floor I did my work, cleaned up, and managed to squish my trash into the trash can. I then informed the manager and he was like "???" and immediately sent a text to the tech to ask her to empty the trash can. As I was coming back down the hall, I saw the tech go into the room presumably to empty the trash can. I checked after lunch and it was empty. Seriously?? She has to be specifically told to empty a full trash can?? Does the sign off sheet need to be more specific with "check and EMPTY trash can"?? She was just talked to again last week about trash can issues and her work in general by the supervisor and management and at the team meeting last week management reiterated job expectations. And yet somehow she doesn't get it She's basically getting paid to do not do the job

Yeah the reason for getting the Ipad specifically is for art purposes. Nearly all the artists I follow use Ipads and the program Procreate. I've always been a windows/Photoshop user, so this will be a big change. If it was just to have a tablet, I'd get something cheaper for sure.My brother has an actual iPad, and he says that unless you're a real Apple fan, get an Android tablet. He says they can do more and cost less, and are easier to use.
. . .but I know some people just use "iPad" to mean any tablet, just like Xerox and Kleenex .
Could it be that because of COVID19 they are giving her/him more slack than they normally would?There are no open positions available at the moment. We just hired 3 new people recently for positions that had been available for a few months. I'm sure that if this problem tech were to leave, we could hire someone new fairly quickly.
If this were to happen at any of my previous jobs, the problem tech would have been given one chance to improve and then fired when there are no improvements. I don't understand why the boss is so lenient with staff who aren't meeting expectations and haven't for months The boss personally sent me an email saying the issues with this tech was being addressed. Haven't seen anything more than just talking to the tech done yet It's more than full trash cans that aren't being emptied. There are other issues, some more serious than others, that others have brought to management's attention.
