I will be blunt with this one. I have the worst manager ever. Let us call her "Hook."
Now, as I said in my last post I work in a small chain sandwich shop that has about 20 or so employees currently and about 6 supervisors. I like most all of them. But then there is Hook....
Hook is not a good manager. She does close to nothing, tells you to go faster when your already moving at light speed, gets pissy looking when you ask her for help and motivates people by threatening to write them up. I've been there only about 5 months and shes already brought up write ups to me on several occasions.
Also she divides the work so that the newer people get the most. Today I had to clean all the glass, clean the lobby, wash dishes, clean the ledges, clean the dishwashers, clean the restrooms, fill all the napkin dispensers, stock, and clean the dish area. Now this would be fine normally. IF I WASN'T ALWAYS THE ONLY PERSON WORKING THE FRONT ON THE BUSIEST DAYS OF THE WEEK EVERY TIME!
Here's a good example: I am in the bathrooms scrubbing down the toilets when she pages me.
Hook: Bug, we need you at front.
Now, when we clean the bathrooms we have to get a new towel, gloves, ect whenever we have to stop to do something else. So it's a huge hassle for me to be pulled out. So before hand I told her I was going to clean out the bathrooms so she could watch front. Being the naive fool I am I assume the best of her and think that she would only page me if there was a massive line up of people that she and the other 3 people working could not handle on they're own. So I toss my stuff in the trash and wash up quickly rushing out, and what do I find.
There is one frickin woman standing at the counter and hook and the other employees are just standing three feet away chatting.
Even as I rung this woman up fuming the custy even asked me why they couldn't help her if I was doing something else.
The only thing I could tell her was that I didn't know.
Even worse is that once I had finished cleaning the bathrooms as it was time to punch out I went and told her I had to leave. And what does she say?
Hook: Okay, but if I go in later and the bathrooms aren't clean I'm going to write you up.
Okay. First off, where does she get off saying that shit? Second, what if some douchetards came into the bathrooms just as I was leaving and left a huge fucking mess? Just no fucking comment....
Hook isn't the only problem though. Oh, no. One thing that I just found out is that we cant have sick days without bringing in a doctors note and if we don't we get written up. ARE WE IN FUCKING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!!!!!!
I can't afford the fucking $100 it costs to go to the fucking doctors every time I'm sick! I am a minimum wage employee in fucking collage!!! It would cost me almost 2 days wages to to this fucking song and dance!!!!!!! And like I am going to go to the doctors when I puking just so I can pay him to tell me what I already fucking know!!!
I mean whats up with this place? The store owner has even made me do work after I clocked out! and when I told her I already punched out, what does she say?
"Oh, well just do it quick."
Well guess what? I looked it up and making me work off the clock is a violation of the "fair labor standards act" and a federal offense.
Honestly I am thinking about doing something.
What do you think RHU?
