Well, I think I’m just their “go to” when no one else will do the job.
My availability? WIDE open. Anytime, day or night.
What can I do? Anything…drive, make line, manager…you name it. If someone calls in, all they have to do is call.
Have I made it known to them my availability? Even to the point of offering to go to other franchises he owns to assist when they are short staffed. He promises to schedule me at those stores, then never does.
But, they had no problem having me go out to Apartment Night in a shady neighborhood selling pizzas by myself with cash on hand, and then the rest, try to sell off at the neighborhood bars.
They also want me to do their school tours because the 2 ladies that “hate” me (the one who went postal on me many months ago and then the one who they gave my hours to), in the owner’s own words…“aren’t competent enough to run the tours…they don’t make it fun”.
Long story short is, they must want me gone because they know they’ve screwed up. They probably realize I have MORE than what I need to go before the fair labor board, but I’m not that type of person, and will not do it unless they ever try to discredit me in any fashion.
There are kids being scheduled 7 nights a week, so how can it be unfair to them to lose hours when I want more hours?
I’m not like I am here at work (meaning I’m not a complainer…I only vent here because you folks understand). I never talk other than to communicate in the kitchen, but I am kind to everyone, and I just get my job done, without questions, without being told what to do, and always with a smile.
I guess it’s kind of like my mom says…no one likes someone who is happy all the time. Must be, because I sure can’t figure this one out.
I just know I went from Full time to Part time, and now just 6 hours a week, with a .50 an hour cut in pay, with no explanation, and the expectation I’m supposed to just sit by and be happy with it. I am seriously thinking about going ahead and quitting even though I can’t find something right now (the only reason I’m still at PJ), just to eliminate seeing their drama every week.
