Management Wants Customers Have To Wait No Longer Than 15 Seconds, Employees Comply And Chaos Ensues

Ironically, we are living in a society where working at any workplace is becoming more challenging day by day, be it at a retail store, medical clinics, malls, or at any restaurant. But, what is it that is making the job more difficult and time-consuming to complete? It’s the only management and ridiculous so-called managers, who don’t even know how to solve a single problem.

The most serious red flag for any company is when the managers or bad bosses are completely unaware of the difficulties that their employees are experiencing on a daily basis. They are unaware to the importance of creating a work-life balance for employees, or perhaps they have never heard of the term “work-life balance.” Employees’ well-being is important, but they don’t seem to care. Why? because all they want is to make the job so difficult for the employees that they will either give up or resign from their positions in the end. Not only that, but the management is sometimes so bad at locating the positions in a retail store, and the descriptions and tasks are so misaligned that it creates chaos in the store, which in turn results in poor customer service and a negative customer experience. Furthermore, the employees are required to work in two different locations within the store and to multitask – this is an extremely stressful routine for these people.

Just like this Reddit user u/BobertGnarley who has shared his awful experience of a terrible boss. After receiving complaints from customers about the longest waiting times, this boss instructed her employees to reduce the waiting time to fifteen seconds. Anyways, if you want to read the whole story, then just keep scrolling down.

Here’s the Reddit post of the guy whose work was disturbed because of a single order by the manager.

The management was receiving complaints regarding the waiting time, and the customers had to wait for only a minute and that’s a long waiting time for them before checkout.

So, here the management decided to reduce the waiting time and to prioritize the customers.

Staff couldn’t stay at the register and stock at the same time, resulting in inefficient work. The manager then dropped the order to reduce the wait time.

That’s insane! Why don’t these managers understand the term “Efficiency,” and how tasks and work are disrupted when a single staff member has to manage so many jobs at once? It is perfectly fine to ask employees to work on more than one task, but asking them to work on multiple tasks at the same time results in inefficiency and a lack of motivation.

Still, if the manager wants the employees to work in this manner, he or she should either hire more people or create a clone of these employees to reduce the workload.

Here’s what different people have to say on this Reddit post!
