Ok basically before I start I just wanna say that i'm so not that kinda person in any other way, i would never ever steal from anyone i knew and i just thought coz i work for a big faceless company it would be ok. And yes it was soooooo stupid, i honestly know that. But yeh basically, I get on really well at my job, i'm fully trained up, thought of as a senior person, someone who can field any customer question etc. Last week they asked me to go down and help another store out and pay for my train tickets up front and i would get the money back. I agreed, but was too embarresed to tell them i wouldnt have any money left if i did that. I dunno i just felt immature/like they wouldnt ask me again (i'm 22 btw, been there for over a year).
But anyway, this is the stupid part. I put a refund through the till as if a customer was bringing something back and took the money out of the till. It came to about £40 altogether. They called me into day and showed me the reciepts, cctv (they have to do everything by the book) and asked for for an explanation. I admitted everything, explained why, said i was really sorry. They said i was suspended on full pay and i had to go back for a disiplinary to find out wether i get to keep my job.
Does anyone think it's worth me going back? I could just walk into to suffer the shame of getting the talking down of my life. Do u think they'll let me keep my job? They've spent a lot of money training me and i'm pretty valuable to the company, but everyone i've spoken to says theft is theft and they doubt i'll get my job back. Has this ever happened to anyone else? what was the outcome? I'd really appreciate some advice if anyone can be assed
