Overworked for Little Pay
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – March 15, 2018
Firstly, I worked there during throughout college, but once I graduated with my bachelors, my pay literally was decreased by $2/hour. They said it was because my position changed to full time and they were paying for benefits, but it was a huge blow for me after completing my Bachelors.
Secondly, my manager frequently asked me to work overtime since we were understaffed, which I agreed to since she was in a bind: 10-12 hour days weekdays & then weekends as well. But then she would joke in front of my coworkers that I worked so much because I "had no life".
Thirdly, there was no upward mobility.
I was burnt out, insulted, and did not feel valued, so I left.
