Worked in kitchen at St. Vincent's. Managers don't hesitate to lie and pretend they're going to help out. My manager refuses to give me more than a 2% raise despite the ridiculous amount of shifts I covered that year and the fact that I was the only one running the dish room. Upon trying to move up to a simple supervisor position, they ignore me for a solid 3 months, despite having already hired the new supervisor. They didn't tell me anything until well after the new supervisor was working. Now I'm up for it again and they offer me a .50 cent raise, bumping me up to the point that a new supervisor would earn. What a joke. 2.5 years of blood, sweat, and tears, only to see it wiped away and told I must earn another raise next year. The highest possible raise is 3%, but they tell me I can earn 5% if I do okay. Difficult to believe. The one major bright side is that when working utility positions, I can essentially do whatever I want to at this point and no one's paying any attention whatsoever. Unbelievable how management's gotten so far without getting fired.
Long breaks, lax management
Management lies, high achievers get nothing, low achievers tend to be favored by management
