There was a store meeting last week.
The manager was very upset, because he is one of those bosses that tells everyone they are “like a family” to him. Don’t you hate these kind of bosses? It isn’t that they genuinely feel like we are like a family member to them, they just use that line for guilt and manipulation. It’s easier to berate someone into taking on extra shifts if you tell them they are part of your family. We all do stuff for our families that we would never do at work, and these bosses changed the rules on us! I love my job at the cannabis dispensary, but I do not feel like the other employees are “like my family.” I think these are just mind games, since they know 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 current bosses will find out and possibly fire me. So I was quietly talking to the managers 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, and then turn in my 2 weeks notice here. Unless they lay that “family” crap on me again, or I might quit on the spot.
