Sorry it's been a while, but lotsa stuff going on, with becoming a crew trainer ( yay!), going towards a management position at McDs ( double yay!) and getting a second job at 24-7, haven't had much down time. However, I would like y'all's opinion about something...
First off, I'm not complaining about anybody I work with per se. I think everyone rocks in their own way. Still, there's one person I work with in the a.m. We'll call her Carol.
She comes in to do the prep in the morning, like make burritos, parfaits, etc. She is a nice person, but she has a habit of calling out every week, like several times a week.
When prep calls out, usually the prep tasks fall to whoever is opening pit ( ahem). It's not that I mind doing it, it's that we have been getting slammed during breakfast, and there have been days where I can't get away from the window once during the entirety of my shift, so I can't even get a drink of water, let alone do prep, dishes, AND take orders and payment.
It stresses me out, which stresses the managers out and it goes downhill from there. Now, one thing I've noticed she's doing now is she will ask me if I'm opening the next morning. If I tell her I am, she calls out. If I tell her I don't know, she asks me every hour or so if I've found out.
There are two schedules she can look at ( one is easier to understand than the other ), but for some reason she never looks at them. Now, this has actually made me a stronger worker, but it's the fact that I think I'm being taking advantage of, and I usually can't tell until it starts affecting my job performance.
What do you guys think? I talked it over with a couple managers, and they're tired of her calling out too. I don't want to start something but with me possibly moving into management, I won't be in pit as much anymore, and I don't want her to pull the same stunt on whoever takes over pit.
So, any insight would be greatly appreciated. Other that, everything's been aces! I have some stories from my second job, but I'll save those for another time. Till then, may all your coworkers actually show up.
