First, an update. I put my two weeks notice in at The Basin (meh, closest name to it..) because I landed a full time job at a restaurant, and it's close to my home. Woo woo !
Anyway, I want to tell you all about a little something that happened today. I was going around performing basic job duties (replenishing the shelves, straightening the shoes, helping custys). When NM (new manager) who is known for trying to make a name for herself [and thinks she's the shit, because she worked at Hellers for 10 years] and being incredibly demanding - comes over to me and asks me to do the most random and stupid job ever.
You know clothing racks that have the arms that come out and they're made from metal? WELL, she wanted me to get down on the floor on my hands and knees and scrub the bottoms of the racks with windex. Um, No. You could just tell she made this job up in her head too.
I'm required to come to work dressed to the nines - heels, dress, blazer, etc. There's no reason for me to be crawling around on the floor. She was going around doing this to other employees too . . no one was happy with her and she was being incredibly smug when she made her requests.
But :) I witnessed the store manager (her boss) holler at her today for leaning. Took the wind right out of her sails <3.
** And before I finish off, I have a couple questions for RHUers.
- I have never worked in a restaurant before. What are some good tips ?
- How do you remember who ordered what? How do you not drop things ?
I'm nervous ;/
