AIBU to think DD shouldn't have done this?

AlternativeTentacle Wed 18-Oct-17 16:45:31

I wouldn't have stayed. Why do you think she should have?

So they told her during her shift she wasn't being kept on and she didn't finish out the shift? Seems fair to me, not many would stay would they? If you aren't being kept on its for a reason so bit like you will use them as a reference anyway. What age is your dd?

GreyHairs8 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:47:08

I would have. It seems a bit immature. She'd have still been paid.

TheQueenOfWands Wed 18-Oct-17 16:47:28

I wouldn't have stayed either.

They don't want you, you leave. That's how it works.

GreyHairs8 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:47:37

She's 17.

GreyHairs8 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:48:05

But they asked her to? They offered her until the end of the probationary period.

WitchesHatRim Wed 18-Oct-17 16:48:27

Did they just not keep her on or did she fail It?

DancingDragon Wed 18-Oct-17 16:48:36

I wouldnt have stayed either.

I don't reckon I'd have stayed either. Rookie mistake on their part not to tell her at the end of the shift!

NeedsAsockamnesty Wed 18-Oct-17 16:48:57

I expect the told her to

Auspiciouspanda Wed 18-Oct-17 16:49:09

I wouldn't either.

GreyHairs8 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:49:26

Apparently they couldn't keep them all on and as she wasn't 18 so had to get people to approve alcohol they decided her.

Nocabbageinmyeye Wed 18-Oct-17 16:49:52

So not good enough to hire but good enough to tide them over while they hire someone else and they are covered? Nope at 17 I'd be gone, at 38 I'd be gone actually so at 17 I definitely would have walked

QuestionableMouse Wed 18-Oct-17 16:50:00

How long did she have left?

Namechangetempissue Wed 18-Oct-17 16:50:05

I would leave. If my work wasn't good enough to keep me on, why stay?

AlternativeTentacle Wed 18-Oct-17 16:50:18

I would have. It seems a bit immature.

Immature? You'd be daft to stay.

If her work isn't good enough for them tomorrow, why is it good enough today?

GreyHairs8 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:50:40

2 weeks.

If you don't pass your probation at m work you're escorted from the building!

Caulk Wed 18-Oct-17 16:51:43

I’m confused. Are you expecting to say to her that lots of people on the internet say she should have stayed and can she just go back in time and stay?

Nocabbageinmyeye Wed 18-Oct-17 16:51:47

Cross posts, no I'd still go, I can't see many staying really. I also think it's a cop out saying they hired too many, your probationary period is shout you proving yourself, them miscalculating the number of staff they need is a different thing

BestZebbie Wed 18-Oct-17 16:52:17

I'd have stayed because technically she was still required to be there as she was still being paid for that shift regardless. So leaving but taking the money is probably a crime on some level.

However, I don't think they'd actually do anything if she walked out, so I can see why people might, especially if they felt offended by not passing probation and wished to flounce.

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow1 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:53:19

I'd have walked too.

Whats the point in staying?

Changerofname987654321 Wed 18-Oct-17 16:54:05

A silly decision because when she applies for her next job she will need a good reference and I am guessing at sometime soon she will be 18 and then they maybe looking for new staff.

Auspiciouspanda Wed 18-Oct-17 16:54:17

Nah fuck them, not having enough cover might make them realise you can't just hire a bunch of people then fire some because you 'have to get rid of some'. A probationary period is to see you do a good job not to see if you can afford to keep them all on.
