I've also started doing all the scheduling for the department too, and apparently they were impressed with that. The district manager complemented the schedule. They give us this ridiculous goal of spending only so much labor. You're not supposed to be at 100% scheduled and I was just making the schedule aiming to not use all our hours. I apparently put us at 90% and got a call out because I did an awesome job. The goals they set are crazy because we don't have enough people to work as it is, and we don't get to use all of the labor, but hey! Recognition is recognition.
I was also happy with the fact that I didn't actually miss an entire question. The questions I missed had multiple parts to answer, so I missed half of three multiple answer questions. I'm just glad it is done and over with and I can move on with work. I averaged about forty-six hours of work this week and it was insane.
I even procured some LEGO on the last day of training.
This upcoming April marks my second year work with Best Buy, and I just had my annual review. I pretty much do everything above and beyond my job, and know I'll be getting another raise beyond the slight increase you typically get. My manager sat down and talked to me, and wanted to discusses further development options for my future career. Right now out of all the Best Buy stores, the store I work at and my department is in the top ten. That's the top ten of all the Best Buy stores. We currently rank at fourth. That's pretty darn amazing.
While we were doing my review, he talked about how the other store managers had to contact him to find out what we do differently to perform so well. He continuously talked about me and talked me up to them. He ranted and raved so much, that the other stores were asking him to send me to their stores to help train staff. Like whaaaaaat, seriously? He then went on to say that he could easily see me being a supervisor or manager. Not in the future. Not down the road. Right now. I could go into another store and easily do the job.
I have been pretty sick lately... taking two different kinds of immunosuppressants really wrecks your system. This week has been pretty good though! Finding out how highly we rank in the company out of all the stores, having my annual review and getting such high praise (I scored a 4 out of 5, 4 is considered the high mark because 5 is like just flawless perfection and most people get a 3 if that). You get a 2 just for doing your basic job duties. Today was the best day though. Tomorrow is payday and because of the performance... we got a huge bonus. Typically I might see an extra $50-100 on a check if we bonus. I am not going to post the exact bonus amount, but I'm safely able to pay off all my monthly bills, buy my cosplay materials, and put aside money for vacation.
Such is life. It might not be the best at the moment, but there are some pretty good things going.
I'm working on my own version of a Tesla inspired by Warehouse 13 though. It is going to be more Steampunk, but in the shape and form of a shotgun.
Needless to say... I went to get in my locker and didn't know the combination. My paper copy of the combination was in my wallet... that I had at the time of purchasing the combination lock. I upgraded to a new wallet and left the written copy in the old one. Oops.
I had an idea of the vicintity of the numbers. 11, 10, 5, 25, 20, 21... There wasn't anything above thirty or below five, but it left way too many variables. I tried and tried and tried. Stopped, went back out into the Black Friday madness... Thought some more.
I couldn't figure it out. I was tired being up for twenty four hours straight so far. Finally I just sat down and listened to the tumblers click and feel the lock shift. I managed to hit the right numbers and unlock my locker thankfully, without bolt cutters.
