FFS. Does this situation not end?
After winning, and getting my 2 months off... My shift manager has put me into a shift next week. ARGH.
I might send a letter. Because it's better than not turning up, but I am not calling because that re-opens negotiations. We're past negotiations now, you lost SM. Your boss said to get my shifts covered that you so kindly gave me on purpose between telling you I wanted no shifts, and giving the letter to your boss, so F OFF.
Edit: I almost didn't even look at the scheduling. I might just act like I haven't. I had no reason to, as it was decided that I was not working.

At my store they don't seem to matter that much (not that they get handed out any more anyway) but I got a lot of them during one time, literally every other shift I was on I'd get a retraining slip and nothing ever happened. Although it was clearly not my fault anyway, funny how I'd always have my till spot on or up or down literally a couple of pence but then pounds were suddenly missing, I put it down to certain managers.

Only started a couple of weeks ago, and yeah, some questions.
How much does a till retraining slip matter?
How flexible are they with booking time off work? I'm going away for a month in July, and wondering if they'll just give me the time off. And when should I book it?
Also, exams in May. Not sure whether to book the two weeks off, or to just ask for like one shift per week?
They're pretty flexible with time off, they don't like giving time off during December because that's our busiest period. I'd book your time off ASAP though just in case other people at your store are wanting time off then. I think it's meant to be for every week you want off you should give them twice that in notice. So you should be giving two months notice :P
It's up to you with your exam situation. In my eyes working one shift a week shouldn't affect your exam performance but if you feel it will then you should just ask not to be scheduled then. Better to take time off than regret not having the time off and regretting your results.
Ooh that does sounds neat! One of our franchise group must have it cos I was in their store (months ago admittedly) and the girl voided something and I didn't even hear the noise of a card being swiped.

It's laid out a lot neater. And you don't need the manager card to void off any orders! And you can upgrade things to a meal, so if someone said "I want a Big Mac" then after you've put it through, they decide they want a meal then you can upgrade it rather than voiding it then putting the meal through. And it when putting through grills it only lets you put through grills for the actual ingredients, so no more hamburgers no lettuce coming through! There is an 'ask me' button though, if a customer wants like a tomato on their Big Mac or something.
Now that the new till system is in, our till numbers have all changed. It used to go 7 1 2 3 4 5 6, but now it's in number order. So people are getting confused when it comes to delis and grills on who's is coming first.
With those things it's usually the customer though! The worst is when you're serving a customer who's taking their time oohing and ahhing at the menu, then you hear whoever's on chicken shouting "HURRY UP TILL 3!", it's not my fault!
Swear my store is always the last place to get everything
I just tend to mutter various obscenities under my breath, my store would not be best pleased at us shouting at front. Do love myself an awkward customer though. They definitely get worse during Monopoly season.
"Excuse me I ordered this Big Mac plain but there's no cheese on it!"
