My roommate and I could not believe it when all of us got called in to come to work, because every one of us genuinely thought they would close the store with all this dangerous ice on the roads, however no, our employer says we’re staying open. Well, it took us over more than one hour to make a drive that usually takes 30 minutes; there was wet, heavy snow starting to come down, and already we were seeing downed power lines all over the sides of the roads. But when all of us finally got into work, the lights were dimmed. That’s not good, seeing as the whole store should have been fully opened with the all of the lights on over a half hour ago a that point. When all of us got inside, we found just a few employers there and almost no other team members. They told us that our store had lost power and was only running on the emergency back-up, so all of us had the emergency lights, and no heating and A/C. Every one of us spent the first more than 40 minutes or so of our shift just racing to empty the frozen cases from the aisles and into the freezers; but as we’re doing so, customers are genuinely coming in to shop! The store has no heating or cooling of any kind, so particular areas of the store are chilly, however people are still here shopping away. They’re not even buying storm supplies like your space furnaces or deicer. The last lady I rung out bought more than one t-shirt and a pack of gum… Finally, our boss concluded that he had to let everyone go back home and close up early because technically, all of us were working in illegal conditions. The store has to be able to heat to at least 65 degrees at all times for us to be working there, and no heating and A/C means that isn’t happening.
