weve got a new member of staff at work, and well, she's causing abit of a stir...
our manager employed her and told us all she was ever so nice, but now were not too sure.
firstly she needs glasses but wont wear them, and fair enough, who are we to make someone wear their glasses, but she's on the tils alot, and you NEED to be able to see those screens. a few people have commented on how she's got her face right up to the screen - and she's even used 2 bells (special supervisor call) during busy times just to ask me where barcodes are on products, surely it would be easier to wear glasses?
secondly, she's very abrupt. you'd have to be mad not to get along with our team at work, we really are nice! we go out of our way to talk to her and she's actually been ignoring people! then she's been complaining to other supervisors that no one will speak to her!
she's also very abrupt with customers, most of us will say "next please/yes please" in a friendly manner, she grunts "whos next" - its not very nice! and I never hear her use the words please or thankyou!
thirdly she self harms, or atleast used to. she's started wearing a bandage on her arm to cover up the scars, but its got customers asking her what shes done, and she cant wear it forever, can she?
and fourth, someone actually came into our shop from another buisness to warn us about her!! telling us she's a bad worker and suddenly leaves a job without a goodbye.
now, what im wondering is if we should mention all this to the manager when she gets back from her holidays. surely she wants to know how her staff are getting on, and perhaos she can have a word with her about the issues ive mentioned?
what do you think?
