(San Jose, Ca)
a pick up of cash was to be entered by mananger, money was counted and bundled I motioned mgr, the pick up was nver done near the end of my shift I noticed on end of day "X-read" report the amount of cash I should have was extremly high I counted my whole til out and I was approximatly $540.00 short. I asked the manager that was suppost to enter my cash pick up, whether he ever got my pick up entered he said I never gave him cash. I then told 2nd manager that I had givin money for pick up to other manager and now he denies I gave him money at all.I was asked by other employee, "maybe I may have accidently put money in my apron pocket, gone to the restroom, or went to lunch and left in my car by mistake(I checked all these places). i would not put cash in my pocket ever. I feel like I was treated like I was being given the chance to put the money back if I had it. I had only 3 payroll checks that day and they were all less than $300.00 so I KNOW I wouldnt have messed up on a check, like given too much cash back. My supervisor went over transactions with me but there was nothing standing out to possibly explain, i was distraught and could barely breath, he asked if i wanted to go over the surveilence with him, i declined I was too upset over this, on another day when I was not so distraught I asked if I could view the survielence i was told no that it was private property of Cost Less, I said if I am responsible for that money shouldnt I be allowed to see maybe I could see something maybe they missed, i just know in my heart (I work 5+ yrs) that money was taken and with no explaination or paper trail to reveal something like giving too much cash back on a check, this looks damaging to me, my integrity.
I've answer quite a few questions about "cash shortages".
