My roommate plus I were shocked when all of us got called in to come to work! The two of us easily thought they would close the store with all this ice on the roads, however no, our supervisor says we’re staying open. Well, it took us over two full hours to make a drive that usually takes 30 minutes at most. There is wet, heavy snow starting to come down, plus already we’re seeing downed power lines all over the neighborhood, and naturally, when all of us get into work, the lights are dimmed. That’s not good, seeing as all of us should have been fully opened with the all of the lights on over two hours ago. When all of us get in, we actually find just a few supervisors there plus almost no other team members! Our store had lost power plus was only running on the minimal emergency back-up, so at best we had the emergency lights, plus no heating and A/C. The two of us spent the first two hours or so of our shift just racing to empty the frozen cases from the aisles plus into the freezers… But as we’re doing so, shoppers are making their way into shop! The store has no form of heating or cooling, so particular areas of the store are freezing, however people are still here. They’re not even buying storm supplies like space heating systems or deicer or even oil. The last person I rung out bought two t-shirts plus a single pack of gum! Finally, our boss concluded that all of us had to let all the people go home plus close up early because technically, all of us were particularly working in illegal conditions here. The store has to be able to heat to at least 65 degrees for us to be safely working there, so the lack of heating and A/C means that isn’t happening.
