The economy is in sad shape and I'm not making my goals at my store in the mall. My productivity standard during the month of June was $73.00 (that means I need to sell $73.00 worth of merchandise from the drapery department an hour. My productivity for June was only $65.00 which means that I did not achieve the minimum productivity standard. My hours have been cut and I'm not getting many prime hours. Prime hours meaning the peak hours for shoppers. Last night I had 3 customers. I have a feeling that my productivity for the month of July is going to be bad news. We don't have many customers that can afford window treatments at this time. I really love my job here in the mall and would hate to lose it.
What should I do?
I'm so happy that I have this job at the campground, I love working here. We are busy on weekends and holidays but during the week is slow. This sad economy is really hurting everyone.
YIKES, winter is coming and I need to have a job.
I guess I will count my blessings and take it one day at a time.
