Cashier/Customer Service, West Valley City, UT - June 15, 2016
With my first job I shockingly found it so fun. Being able to be interacting with people and learning new routines. There were times where the place was busy, but even with all that I still enjoyed working. The owners were typically nice and at meeting we were able to try the new foods and beverages that the store had. I became good friends with a lot of the people I worked with and I still would talk to them even after I stopped working there. Until we got close to the end of my time there problems started rising. I realized that you are suppose to be paid for the hours you are scheduled and that when you are in the store is when you clock on till the end of shift. We suddenly had a new manager and he knew me a lot because we closed together and he would always chose me to stay and close with him. I asked if we could have some new workers to help me a little bit because I was closing every night and staying till almost midnight on school nights and it effected my grades. We had a few new people, but I still was asked to stay and to find out I was only given 1-3 hours on my time card even though I would be there for 8 or more hours. The one time I asked off they told me no and at that point I was sick of how I was being treated and I called and told my manager I couldn't do it anymore.
