• How do I deal with my manager?

    I have a department manager who always sends me text messages complaining about something I do, about the smallest stuff and I always respond to her with an explanation or a sorry. Every time I text her with a simple question or let her know I can help close the days she works a 9-8 shift, she never responds to me.... show more
    I have a department manager who always sends me text messages complaining about something I do, about the smallest stuff and I always respond to her with an explanation or a sorry. Every time I text her with a simple question or let her know I can help close the days she works a 9-8 shift, she never responds to me. My other managers tell me I do a great job closing the dept so I am doing a good job. I am tired of the way she treats me, she also cut my hours drastically even though she knows I need the hours. One time I needed a shift change because something came up and I texted her to let her know ASAP and she made me feel like I was nothing but a pest to her. She sent a message saying "Stop talking to me!!" it makes me very sad when she talks to me this way. I already went to my store manager but it seems to have done nothing.

I told my boss I left because I wasn’t feeling good and one of my managers told me she doesn’t believe me because when my manager called my house phone 30 minutes after I never came back, I was still not home. My boss told me I should be terminated because I just walked off, but they ended up keeping me on. Does this mean they really like me? I’ve been at that job for a year now.

  • I got sent home early today because the assistant managers kept complaining. Is that bad? What else am i supposed to do?

    Best answer: You make yourself look busy and be sure to do the work slowly. It's an oxymoron, I know! Also sometimes people are just bad at scheduling workers, or they over/under estimate lunch rushes. In that case, it's common for people to be sent home; why pay them to stand around and do nothing (even if it's... show more

    I'm a high school student, and recently I've obtained a job working at a cafe. Since then, they've been giving me a lot of shifts per week, with long hours. I've asked them to cut down, but they haven't been extremely accommodating. I'm becoming concerned that this will interfere with school, so now I'm considering quitting. My concern is, does it look bad when you've worked at a place for only 2 months? and then quit?

    I just got a job as a busser/hostess at a very popular restaurant and my first day of training was today, Friday, the second busiest day. They showed me how to do everything and then let me do things on my own. After two hours of training/work they said I could go home and then come back tomorrow at 5:30 pm. I felt like I did pretty decent considering it was my first training day. The restaurant closes at 10 and they sent me home at 7:30. Is it normal to get sent home early when it's your first time training? It was pretty hectic tonight so I don't know if they just didn't want to overwhelm me or if I was doing anything wrong or something. Thanks!

    I'm a sophomore at the CIA. I've gone through most, if not all of the rudimentary courses regarding knife and cooking basics, fabrication, and some nutrition. Some of my future classes relate to specific cuisines, and later hospitality, business management, and wines studies. I always knew as a teen I wanted to just cook, and specifically NOT be a chef or manager. I've realized that I am a really lacking leader. I have a above average anxiety level, and I'm still really shy. Not exactly traits of a chef. I was never passionate or excited about different cuisines or traveling as most other students at the school are. Fine dining also seems extra and outside my interest. Honestly I just enjoy cooking, but I can't take the studious side of school anymore. I've felt significantly burnt out and unmotivated for the past month. I've started skipping classes, which each counts as one 0 out of 15 classes. I want to be able to learn in a more stable and relaxed environment, whether that means going to community college or working my way up. I spent the summer as a prep cook for a country club and was much happier there than I was moping and stressed here at the CIA. I've gotten what I wanted out of school. I already have one year at culinary school plus an internship. I know its not much, but would I still be able to make my way up in a decent restaurant? Or possibly use cooking as a hobby and switch careers entirely to study something else or work somewhat menial jobs?

    Best answer: They're saying that you'll usually work 20 hours but some weeks it might be more or less than that.

    Best answer: They're saying that you'll usually work 20 hours but some weeks it might be more or less than that. And federal minimum wage for tipped employees is 2.13 an hour as long as your tips make up the rest of the regular minimum wage amount. Some states have different minimums - see https://www.minimum-wage.org/tipped . By the way, ALL of your tips are taxable income, including those you get in cash and take home that night. Your employer should be having you report them every shift, and taking taxes out of your paycheck for them. If they don't, be sure to keep track of them every day - you'll need the info to file your taxes.

The shyness will pass with time so I wouldn't worry too much about that, in the meantime just use the get out clause that it's your first couple of weeks and you might be a bit rusty; unless the customer is completely rude they should treat you with the respect you deserve and hopefully tip well!
