The assistant store manager explained that Corporate was splitting my role between two people again.
I've done that job effectively--by myself, for almost two years now without any problems so it's annoying this is happening (but they want all vacancies filled since our store is steadily growing in volume).
Having two people will change the nature of the position and I fear not in a good way.
I'm also worried it'll force me out because two people means my hours will be split up. I may have to get a third part-time job again.
I'll be turning a year older at the end of next month and it's scary to think I can't financially support myself at my age.
Nothing is set in stone just yet but the changes are inevitable. I just hope it doesn't make the job more stressful than it is.
We shall see what happens.
