There was a store meeting last week; The director was actually frustrated, because he is one of those bosses that tells most people they are “like a family” to him, but don’t you hate these kind of bosses? It isn’t that they certainly think like the people I was with and I are like a family member to them, they just use that line for guilt as well as manipulation.
- It’s easier to berate someone into taking on extra shifts if you tell them they are part of your family! Both of us all do stuff for our families that the people I was with and I would never do at work, as well as these bosses changed the rules on us! I love my job at the cannabis dispensary, but I do not think like the other employees are “like my family.” I think these are just mind games, since they think most of the staff are on cannabis constantly.
This sort of thing bothers me, enough that I started to visit other cannabis dispensaries in the area to make some “soft inquiries.” If I just straight up apply for other jobs at other cannabis dispensaries, my new bosses will find out as well as possibly fire meâ€¦ So I was quietly talking to the directors at the other cannabis dispensaries, to see if they were in need of experienced help. I don’t want to burn my old bridge before I build a new bridge, so once I have a strong lead on a job at another cannabis dispensary I will apply there, as well as then turn in my 2 weeks notice here, but unless they lay that “family” crap on me again, or I might quit on the spot.
