so here is my little rant about my job (again) cause i need to get all my feels off my chest right now ok SO

A while ago, my bosses bought this stupid “business management system” from one of those retarded scams where you go to a seminar at a hotel lobby and they sell you a package to make your business more profitable for only 6 easy payments of a billion dollars or whatever. This package included goals for salon employees to meet in order to help the salon grow and to help them move up in their positions. Unfortunately for my position (guest services manager) the goals are impossible to meet and make absolutely no sense. They focus on things like retail, which I do not get any commission for, selling gift cards, which is next to impossible at our location, and adding on services to clients’ tickets, which is really more important for the stylist to do. To top it off you have to meet 5 impossible goals like these for 6 months out of a 12 month period to even be eligible for a raise - so that’s not gonna happen ever - and then you can only be eligible if your boss is doing monthly one-to-ones to actually SEE if you’ve met your goals - which my boss hadn’t done with me for 8 months. If no one is conducting a one-to-one on a monthly basis, then no one is getting compensation for tracking and meeting goals at all. So, obviously after such a long period without even having my goals reviewed, I just stopped giving a shit because I had no incentive to even try.
After many failed attempts at trying to get my boss to understand how unfair this goal system is for guest service and how unsuccessful it is without monthly reviews happening, she finally told me to -AND I QUOTE- “gather ideas from the other girls and spearhead a new goal system because obviously this one isn’t working”. So, after a few weeks of getting opinions and suggestions I came up with a list of ideas and met with my boss today (MY DAY OFF, MIGHT I ADD). Immediately as I sat down she flat out told me that we will only be using the current goal system, no changes will be made, and then went on to reprimand me for trying to get the system changed in my favor because I am “lazy”. She went on to tell me how these goals are the sole indicator of how good a job I am doing (because she is almost never at the salon to see how much other shit I have to do on my shift and how much of an effort I put into more important aspects of my work like ACTUAL GUEST SERVICE DUTIES). Then she told me that I need to hold the other guest service girls accountable for tracking their goals even if I don’t agree with the system and also said that it is APPARENTLY part of my job to come in on my days off WITHOUT PAY and conduct the one-to-ones with them because she “simply doesn’t have the time”. But of course I must have all the time in the world, right?
I am just not sure how much longer I can stay at a job where I am never ever rewarded or even THANKED for the amount of effort I put in and am constantly reprimanded and demeaned in front of my co-workers for frivolous little things like tracking ridiculous goals that I will NEVER even get COMPENSATED FOR! Ugh. Okay sorry, rant over.
