I hated doing schedules.
I know that seems like a harsh statement, but it is the truth.
No one ever gives the times they want off until it is that time. In a perfect world, managers would have their employees’ schedules six weeks ahead of time. The employees would come into the office and give their managers their requests off, and have the exact day and times they needed off. This would make it too easy for the manager to set up a schedule. I always told my employees that if I didn’t have their requests at least two weeks ahead of time, they wouldn’t get their time off. I had a busy cannabis dispensary that demanded I need several employees present at all times. If just one employee doesn’t show up, it makes everyone else suffer. With dispensary employee scheduling systems, I can fill empty spots in seconds and create a schedule in minutes. Once that schedule is generated, I tell the employees they must cover their shift or get someone else to cover it. It helps to make the employees more responsible for themselves and saves me making fifteen calls to cover a shift someone hadn’t shown up for. Dispensary employee scheduling systems have saved me time so I can interact with the cannabis dispensary employees and see where they may need help. I never thought dispensary employee scheduling systems could make such a difference in my work, but it has given me time to do things I would have otherwise overlooked. I don’t know what I did before dispensary employee scheduling systems.
