I would just like to say first off, I'm not a person that shirks away from hard work, but I've never worked so hard at a job for such low wages in my whole entire life with such bullshit Management. Let's start at the top. I have no qualms with LGBT people, but my GM turned out to be a huge raging l*sbian who wouldn't shut up about her partner all damned day and spent all of her time gossiping and hanging out with the other managers in her office: Way unprofessional, I didn't want to hear about what it was like to be gay all the damn'd time. And let's go back to my orientation. Te GM kept moving the dates, then when it was finally scheduled I actually missed the time and the Gm threatened to fire me, because nobody called me to tell me when it was!! I should've quit right then and there or called the DM to snitch on her forgetful, lazy, gossipy ass. So, training finally comes, and they put me on tortilla. Oh my god, what a nightmare. I was so sore that I had to take muscle relaxers just to sleep at night, and I'm STILL waiting for my hands to stop tingling and the swelling in my fingers to go down (My last day was yesterday). Not to mention all the BURNS and CUTS I have up and down my hands from the fryers and prep and tort 1 station. The line was nonstop on tort 1, to the point that when I asked to take a sip of my drink, becuase I was sweaty and so hot I was having a hard time breathing, I was yelled at and told that I couldn't leave the line or turn around. And let's talk about this Empowerment bullshit. You know that's just a reason other employees have to yell at you for every little thing, right?? All day long I heard about how my 6 minute hotel pans of chips were either too "limey" or too much salt, or not enough salt, or barely undercooked, or a second or two overcooked....Didn't matter that I flew on chips, I still was never told that I did well, same with tort 1, I got yelled at for every grain of rice spilled, every tort they claimed wasn't souffled enough, every little thing. The GM had to hop on line yesterday, it was so busy, and I had to start calling out items because the linebacker wasn't doing her job, so guess what? The lazy ass GM yells loudly "I'd rather listen to my linebacker than you" and the customers heard her and shook their head, it was so loud...well, your linebacker wasn't doing her job, so of course I stepped up due to your Empowerment bullshit. I got yelled at about everything, and I mean everything, to the point where I knew I was gonna quit.
But you know what the biggest motivation was for me to quit?? That creepy DJ thing that they have going on. The GM shared her personal "story" with me and then "demanded" that I "share" mine with her so we could "bond" and I could be on her team...Unh unh...NO WAY do I tell total STRANGERS where I am from and what my life has entailed....that's for my real friends and family to know and NOT my boss, DJ notes be damn'd. AND she often checked in with me claiming she could "see into me" and she "knew what was in my head" blah blah blah, kinda like a therapist....once again let me stress NO WAY...how dare she, my GM had NO right to try and act like that with me....super unprofessional. She was there to boss me around, not to psychoanalyze me!! So, after 2 weeks of being yelled at and sore and burnt up, with no thanks for any hard work I did, I decided to quit, because my hands are numb and tingly and swollen now from all the work I did, not to mention the burns which more than likely will form scars. So yeah, that's it, I'm scarred up, it hurts to move my hands, my back is blown out, and I'm still really creeped out from the "therapy hour" approach my GM took with me. I'm heading to CNA school in 5 days and I don't expect to be paid, either, I'm filing with the labor board about that tomorrow.
No matter how desperate you need a job, DON'T work for these guys!!! You'll get injured and yelled at, and you'll be made to do the work of 2-3 ppl in a limited amount of time (fuck the deployment charts!!) for super super low pay....DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT. :(
