Yea it came down to put a two week notice in OR, get fired in three weeks due to poor sales.

The goals are completely blown out of proportion, even on my best day in the last year I haven't gotten close to the goals they want.

Also they said "Each store needs to be at company average on all reservations and subscriptions or you get a write up." Funny thing is if the entire company is over average then the average goes up, at any time 50% of the company will be under the average no matter what.

So that's why I had to leave, I am not getting fired from a 7 year employ over something so stupid, and a quit looks a helluva lot better than a fire.

Kinda sounds like what was going on when i left Blockbuster. They had shifted to some ridiculous sales goals for diff things. Funny thing was you could be beating your sales goal for the store as a whole but if you missed one of the metrics say preorders then i write up was given. I was having to write up employees pretty regularly. Had to let go of some. Not to mention getting a couple myself. Really destroyed morale at most stores not to mention the crazy pressure it created. Lot of us started quiting. I mean if my store is over sales plan by 25%-30% on a regular basis but we miss say preordffood or food bundles by a couple then there are write ups. Total crap. Now they're owned by Dish Network and things are diff. Still glad I quit though. Btw out of 17 store mgrs that were in our district only 2 remain. Everyone else quit.

It's the same here, moral accross the region is horrible, pile on top of that the over saturation of stores in the region and no one is making sales numbers. Seriously in the city of Houston we have 50+ stores, which is double for cities of like size. There are 4 within 5 miles of us and 2 are less than 2 miles.

Anyway sorry to derail this thread, will move to boredem thread if anyone wants to keep talking.

I'm excited, but I'm 50-50 on going. I do have some family stuff, but I'm seeing what I can work out.
