long long late grueling hours, very low pay for responsibilities, nasty belittling managers
Book Keeper (Former Employee) – Maryville, TN – May 14, 2015
This is probably one of the worst jobs I ever had. When I first worked here as a part time associate, I enjoyed it. I was then offered a full-time position as a book keeper, so I took it.
I was responsible for basically all the money counting, and tallying up all the registers, counting all the money, and closing the store at the end of the day. I was responisble for counting all cash, checks, credit/debit receipts, coupons and a variety of other things. Very hard tedious work. I was constantly being belittled by upper management about every tiny little thing, from not completing my tasks in time, to not putting the stapler back in the proper place. It was pretty ridiculous, grueling work where you never felt appreciated for anything you did
I was also given MORE work to my already endless work I already had that was supposed to be upper management's duties, but of course, passed down the line to me. I was making 7.50 per hour. Yes. only 7.50 per hour for this type of responsibility forget about any family time. You go in at 5PM, and work until 1AM.
The benefits package you get was pretty lousy too. very weak, and took a large chink out of your already low paycheck. Also, to put the icing on the cake, I was forced on many occasions to work off the clock, because they didnt want to pay me overtime. this was probably one of the worst degrading, high responsibility, low paying jobs I ever had.
Leaving this place was the best thing I ever did with my life. I remember an employee telling me a story that their previous book keeper dropped dead in the office of a heart attack. I'm not surprised. They probably worked him to death. Im probably lucky I got out of there when I did or I would have been next.
low pay for responsibilities, overworked, weak benefits, belittling managers
