Work Sucks

The new district manager has chopped our hours, and has us preppies on two different shifts during the week.  I got second shift and in prep cook terms that means I start at 11:30 in the morning.  Which is just weird.

On the upside, I get a buttload of stuff done in the mornings, at home.  On the downside, they're screwing with my pay. Which is why I left last time, but returned because I love the job and was promised 30+ hours.  Now, not so much.

I still love my job, but not so much this whole idea of playing with our schedule and taking away my pay.  But on the other upside, I'm spending more time saving money with coupons.

And Tim says if this whole hours chopped thing gets too bad, he's just gonna ship my ass to culinary school.

  3. Debra: I dunno if they will continue this way or not. It's told that we have the highest prep hours in all the land BUT that the other stores have managers that help in prep first. We don't get that help.

    I dunno.

    Kris: NOT COOL, indeed. On the upside, more time to save money and get my bakes done.

  20. bliss: Such a drag.

    Endra: Hahahaha. Lucky me, that's what I'm getting.

    Tara: Have been for awhile. Issue of money. Not sure I can find a coupon big enough.

    mshatch: So much so, yes.

    DEZMOND: Almost did before but the issue was, as it is now, money, money, money.

    Suzan: Big bullet, no coupon.

    Fran: I'd like to do pastry school. No, not cool about the money. And they have an attitude that they just don't care about us.

    Azra: I was, but I also had a small bit of Spidey sense that said don't do it. It's gonna be the same old song again.

    I am a dumbass for not listening.

    Ken: That's a good slogan.

  21. So, if you go to culinary school, does that mean you'll be looking for a chef job?

    You can attend school and continue to work, right? I know a waitress that is doing that.

    Hope it works out for you!

  22. Stacy: I'm more interested in a test kitchen job for a magazine. Right now there's two that I know of that do this.

    Don't know if I would still work or not. Depends on the schedule and where I get shipped to.

    But right now, we need to save for a down payment on a better car. Our cars won't take me to classes.

  23. Hi Happy Whisk,

    Sad to hear your work sucks... Poor thing that you have to work in strange odd hours now.

    More time for coupons... at least, there is a brighter side due to this change.

    I hope things improve soon, Whisk.

  27. I can understand that feeling. When work place sucks but you really love the work.

  28. Zoe: I mean, the start time doesn't bother me, just the lack of total hours and pay.

    Grumpster: I hear this is happening to a lot of people now.

    Bard: Thanks. Feeling much better and started looking at Culinary schools to order the booklets.

    Elsie: Why not? I am.

    Shalet: I am sorry you know the feeling. But thank you for sharing that you do. It helps.
