So, I go into work at the ice cream shop this week to find that the boss cut everyone's hours but the manager's in half.
He hired another six people, bringing the number of people working at the store up to, not kidding here, 30.
This for a store that needs, on average, six people working at a time. Four on the front (as there's an Ice cream counter and a Bakery counter) and two in the back to make the baked goods and stuff. He's still doing interviews with prospective employees!
According to the manager, he does this every year and keeps cutting peoples hours until their lucky to get one shift a week.
I already consistently get shifts that are two hours shorter than everyone else's for no apparent reason, and I need the money for university! Granted, this is the same boss that will yell at us (in front of the customers) about not fitting the dress code (it's simple. A T-shirt with no logo, and not hats) while wearing a shirt with a yin-yang thing and a Japanese phrase that a couple from Japan told me says "Baka Gaijin" which is a rather offensive way of saying 'Stupid Foreigner' and a ratty hat full of holes. Sure, he's the boss, so he can do whatever he wants, but in my opinion, the best kind of leader is the one that will set an example.
My boss is just almost never there. Oh well, this will only last until the end of August, when I go back to Toronto for university, and I'll need to start job hunting again.
Any tips for job hunting?
I spent two years looking for jobs in Toronto and the only place that responded turned out to be a pyramid scheme. I know my resume's good, but I've never gotten past the resume submission stage.
