You arent getting paid enough for this...
Cashier (Former Employee) – Wheaton, IL – July 27, 2015
Mariano's is a great place for kids to gain some work experience. But this store is only good to work at if you don't have bills to pay. The tept you by saying that you will be paid 9.50 an hour, But with all the union dues and taxes that are being taken out, you barely make mimimum wage. This company prides itself on the ability for its employees to advance within the company.. however, this is no easy task. You must gain 3 different managers approval, fill out multiple knowledge tests, and overall be willing to take a time cut in order to go anywhere. I was a cashier for 6 months, and after figuring out that they weren't going to move me up, I decided to try and transfer to another department. Because I was a good cashier, none of the managers would approve me to move to another department. They wanted to keep me at front end. After talking to every manager in the store, I finally managed to transfer to the smoothie bar. However once in smoothie, they wanted to promote me to a higher level. I filled out all the necessary paperwork and completed all the tests. The only thng i had left to do was work one shift in the salad bar. However management refused to allow me to work there because they claimed I was going over thirty hours. In fact I was only getting about 18 hours. Overall this company is hellbet on throwing up roadblocks from letting its employees move up.
short/forgotten breaks, inability to progress
