I requested a day off using some of my personal hours about 4 weeks before that day. The day was finalized in the computer but then when the schedule for that week was printed out, it had me as working that day. I asked the managers and they said just don't show up that day. Ok so I did like they said but now I'm wondering, 1) is that going to show up as going over my hours? (my schedule said 33 but the paid day off made it 34. something. 2) does that show up as a no call no show?

Also...does it show up as no call no show if you request a paid day off, it gets finalized, and then someone messes up and puts you down for that day?

I don't get how this keeps happening..why doesn't the computer system show a message that says the person was already approved to have off that day?

As long as the date was finalized in ETA, you are safe with just not showing up. It won't count as a no call, no show or anything like that.

I've got a similiar problem, the asst manager who usually does schedules, didn't, so, the computer has me working a six day week, followed by 3 off, followed by me going back to my normal work schedule...been told that said manager told my direct boss, she works her normal schedule, don't worry about the posted one.

On the contrary, I WOULD worry about it and make sure that you talk with your manager to make sure that you DON'T get counted as no call no show. In my store, we have one assistant who works attendance exceptions. If the assistant sees that an associate didn't call in, they will check the schedule board to see if any changes were made. If not, the associate is marked as no call no show. It is the associate's responsibility to ensure that this aspect is taken care of.

When an associate asks for time off, it gets approved (or rejected) in the system. THEN - personnel has to print the exceptions, and key them in. I've had as many as 5-6 pages of time off requests to key (there are 40-50 lines on each page). After they are keyed, a manager must override the day in order for hours to be scheduled.

I'd make sure and follow up. In our store, even if an associate has asked for a day off and they were scheduled, they are still supposed to call the call in line and select the other option, and make sure that their schedule is red lined. If the manager did their job, they can unassign shifts at the latest 24 hours in advance.

I always make sure my ass. manager writes it in red on schedule and puts initials one it with mine.
That way there is no question that I might have been suppose to work or anything else. I also keep it in my notes that I talked to....... and they wrote it in red on ....date........
