The dispensary time clock is a fake

My friend & I work for a marijuana dispensary in the city! I have been working at the marijuana dispensary for the past 6 months, however my friend started working at the locale 2 months ago, and one of the things that I liked best about working at the marijuana dispensary was the fact that I did not have to punch a Time clock.

If I was busy to work from 4:00 until 11:00, I did not have to clock in or out anywhere to put my time in, but the director always checked to make sure if you were there & if so, she made sure that your hours were right on the schedule, and sporadically I did not get to work until 4:15 or 4:20.

I never thought it was a sizable deal until the marijuana dispensary hired a up-to-date supplier for payroll & timekeeping. The up-to-date supplier installed software on the laptops to keep track of all of the employees’ hours! We had to use the point of sale laptops to log in & out of the software, then each one of us has a separate number & my friend and I have to manually enter our number into the point of sale system. If my friend and I are more than 7 minutes late, the director gets an automatic text. If my friend and I clock out more than 7 minutes early, the director also gets an text. I guess the dispensary time clock is a crock. I am frustrated, because I have been in trouble three times this week for being late. The director never used to notice in the past.
