Covering for someones shift.. - July 28th 2010, 03:16 AM

I got a phone call from someone at work asking me to cover their shift..
I've never done it before.. I'm hoping that they tell the managers about it because it isn't me who called and asked to begin with. ; /

I seriously hope they do or else I'll just not do it at all. I sorta didn't want to but my parents think its their job to control...and so yeah.
It's for in retail at a store.. Any advice if this person DOESN'T tell the managers at work? It shouldn't be on me to tell the managers about this. I forgot the time but know the day..

Check with your managers. The person who asked you should have checked, its not your responsibility. But check anyway.I don't see why they'll have a problem with it. We swap all the time where I work.

They did check and had three times on three different days. I did the Saturday one and I forgot the time sadly. ; ( I think they will check to be sure its changed as it isn't my responsibility or my regular shift anywhom. I was told by my original manager that we only HAVE to call someone if it's after the 25th of the month.

I'd assume the boss does know about it as the person called me asking. It'd be dumb to not call the workplace and tell/ask if it's okay to do this . It was at 3pm today.. so I am assuming they have done this already and management knows.

Other than that, tomorrow at work I will check and see if they did or didn't.

In my place usually the boss has to give permission that someone else can cover, then we phone

I know people who have done this sort of thing and no one ever tells the manager after the fact. I think they have to get the manager's permission to call someone else to come in first, and then they take the first available person - the manager probab;ly checks in later to see who it was. Just ask them if they told the manager or if they are going to tell them, if they say no, tell them you're really sorry but something came up and you can't do it.

Okay, so I am able to do it this weekend.
I also found out through a post on a forum. It was about the place I work.

"You should always speak to a manager to confirm. If they haven't told a manager, ask the manager to talk to them, and call you to confirm the additional shift.

At my [edited out], both people, and a manager are at the sched. when the shift is switched, and is is initialed by the manager when they have confirmed with both people the switch is ok. To make sure there is no confusion and no problems."
