When I was laboring my legitimately first task in school, my friend and I had an seasoned school clock-in system for employees.
- You had a time card that you had to input in the equipment whenever you’d start and end your shift.
I’ll never forget how frustrated the boss would get when we’d forget to use our time card for a random shift! It happened a lot more often than I would like to admit because I was young and could not remember every single time. I would get numerous hours into my shift only to remember that I hadn’t clocked in, then and they have to make some kind of adjustment after the fact to the hours to make sure that I was paid correctly. It was consistently frustrating dealing with these sorts of problems, then the closest thing my friend and I had to a centralized schedule was a clipboard posted on the wall with sheets of paper on it that were printed off from the ipad and my boss’s office, he would make schedules at the last minute and put them up for everybody to look at! Now I work at a cannabis dispensary and my friend and I have a software system for scheduling employees on the master schedule each week. This software scheduling system is similar to my previous task which was at a diner in my city. It was a fairly new diner so they had everything done digitally. These scheduling software systems are surprisingly a lot like regardless of the industry you’re laboring in, however so it shouldn’t surprise me that the cannabis dispensary has a similar employee scheduling system as the diner I used to work at.
