Cowardly Chipotle Hater's picture

I've been working for chipotle for 6 months, and I'm training to be a manager! They started me off since day one working 40 hour weeks and never getting out on time, always at least 20 minutes after scheduled time. I didn't complain, even though often times I'd be held up to 2 hours after scheduled release. They also don't give me my breaks until after my shift is over, which bothers me, but I need to have a job so badly that I put up with it for the sake of stability in my financial life.

Yesterday, I called out.

I followed procedure 100%.

I called at least 2 hours ahead, told them I was having car trouble, had my car towed to the mechanic, and had to stay there all day while they worked on it. I never lost contact with my manager and I even got a copy of my receipt from my mechanic to prove to them I was telling the truth.

I called yesterday night to find out my new week schedule. Despite being still open, and calling twice, nobody at my store answered. Not even a manager. I woke up at 645am this morning, calling frantically until 8am (also calling my bosses cells and all of my coworkers), and finally at 8, a manager answered and told me I wasn't on the schedule anymore. This is a sign I might be getting fired.

I did EVERYTHING according to procedure, and tried everything I could to keep in contact with my employers, but they're still doing this, after all of my dedication to the store.
