Poor management, effort not recognized
Cashier/Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Hawaii – July 16, 2016
I worked here for 2 years and got moved around a lot (from different work stations ie:cafeteria, coffee bar, smoothie bar). Started at the coffee bar and worked very hard. My hours were very sporadic, depending on the managers mood. After a few months they hired a new girl, who I trained, who became my manager within a month. She then treated me like I was the one not working hard enough. Pulled me away from a long line of customers and had me running for ice/food or bagging pastries in the kitchen (taking me away from tipping customers/being able to collect tips at the end of the shift since I wasn't out helping customers. Which sucked being a college student living on minimum wage). Got my hours dropped a lot. I finally got moved to the cafeteria and that wasn't so bad. However, the company states yearly raises, and I got over looked until about 1 1/2 years.... Then got a 21¢ raise... Got let go without notice after I got a second (better paying) job. Literally came in for a shift, went to clock in and noticed my punch card wasn't there. Had a chef tell me our boss said I was off the hook. No call from my boss, no notice, nothing.
Really enjoyed working here for the first couple of months, but for the stress due to poor management, minimum wage isn't worth it.
Horrible management, no real advancement opportunities, poor pay.
