I was just let go from the dollarstore on Sept 30/12, I was only working for the company for 3 days, Sept 24 - 9:00 am to 1:00 am, Sept 27 - 9:00 am to 1:00 am and Sept 29 4:30 pm to 9:15 pm. I went home after my shift and remembered I did not get my shifts for the following week. I have not worked 2 days in a row before and I did not think it would be a problem to call in for my shifts. After finding the number of the store on line I was about to call in and I received a call from tina (manager) at the dollarstore. She informed me that I was suppose to be at work for a 2:00 shift, I told her I was sorry I did get my shift schedule and I could be in within 15 minutes, she then told me no I couldnt. I asked if I could come in to right down my shifts, she also told me no I couldnt. She then informed me that they do not do babysitting. I apologized again and told her I was not expecting to be working 2 days in a row. She told me nothing is set in stone. She then told me she was marking me down as a no show, and I would have to wait for the company to call me. I waited until Thursday Oct 4th, and I went into the store at 9:00 am . She informed me that having a no show while on probation if automatic dismissal. If that was the case why did she not inform me on the Sunday Sept.30th that I was fired. While I was having my interview for the job on September 17th she told me she was not a babysitter and was going to let 2 young girls go. She could not handle being a babysitter. I know I made a mistake in not getting my shifts on the Saturday, but I could have been marked down as late, if tina would have allowed me to come in. I was not a no show, I was not allowed to work. I was trying to contact human resources on line and I could not reach them.
