Hello, i Am 20 and currently work for a branch of a big uk carpet chain,
I am currently a sales assistant and other than myself we have a manager and about 3 months ago another sales assistant began working for us. I feel i am being underpaid for doing my job.
I do rotas, book in stock, order stock i hold my own set of keys to open and close the store and i am left in charge of the store when the manager is on days off, i am also left incharge of the other sales assistant, i deal with money and in my opinion have the responsibilities of an assistant manager or atleast a supervisor. My nornal working hours are 9-6 but 1 night every week i have to work 11 - 8 with 6 - 8 being on my own, the other sales assistant doesnt have to do any of this, so why should i? I have worked for this company for 6 months and still havent been given my contract in writting, and when i was taken on these 8 pm finishes didnt exist... What should i do? Am i being underpaid? Please reply... Thanks in advance
Also, i have been asking for my contract for 2 months and at first i got told (we dont do contracts) and then when i persisted i keep getting told 'it will be sorted next week'... But next week never comes, also, when i ask why the other sales assistant doesnt have these responsibilities they say 'well she can't be left on her own in charge of the store' surely that isnt fair
