- Wedding: May 2016
Ok dear bees, some of you know that I have had not such a good time at my place of employment. We have the sleazy food and beverage manager who’s a sex. Harassment suit watingto happen, a brainless and incompetent sales/wedding consultant, bartenders who are essentially robbing the place blind, and a general manager who is either is completely clueless or just doesnt give a shit.
The Olny saving grace this place has are the kitchen and banquet crews. They are awesome and I love them all dearly, and I do enjoy my job when there are weddings and large events.
Now all tie pretty annoyances have been building up and building up unill today when we came back from a weekend away ( my fi works with me, and we NEVER get a day off together), and we saw what awaited our return. We really are the Olny thing holding this place together.
The kitchen was awreak, the floors looked like they haven’t been swept let alone mopped in 3 days, the back bar is a disaster, none of the prep was done, and oh my god the flies… Since my shift started today at 4 I’ve killed 167 of them, and they are laughing at me. I asked the one cook wtf happened and he said , ” no one cares so why should we? I might call the health inspected myself just to get the place shut down, Mabey then something will change”
My fi and I do most ( all) of the prep, cleaning and arguing with the bartenders to get shit rung in. One guy didn’t show up to work for a week and a half and that’s ok, but fi and get shit for taking a weekend off with notice . Oh and we got denied our raise and our vacation time ( bc there wasn’t enough money to cover our weeks paid vacation.
Now I’m in grad school and doing this full time. I have an opportunity ( fi too) to go to work as a forkstruck driver for 20 bucks an hour, three 12 hr shifts that I pick ( in my case sat, sun, and one day during the week. The money equals 643 dollars more a week than I am making now working 6 8 hr days.
I feel kinda bad for jumping ship, but I ve been here for 3 years and this place keeps getting worse and worse. I like my direct boss and my co workers, and I kinda feel like I’m abandoning them. 🙁 fork truck driver doesn’t sound nearly as impressive as sous chef.Lol
Should I jump??
