I have got the most Ham-Handed staff that I have ever experienced, I’m willing to bet these clowns could destroy an Anvil with a rubber mallet without much effort/.
This week has just been a trail of destruction, and idiocy .
Where do I start?
Oh, the dolly for the garbage can, it twists on the bottom and locks in place, well it came off, so I watched 3 people try to figure out how to unsuccessfully reinstall it, after 15 minutes of me getting very aggravated, and wondering if they can even tie the laces on their shoes without adult help, I finally intervened while biting my tongue to keep from calling them idiots .
Urns for the iced tea,
Lets not gently unscrew the spigots, lets just tear them off, then try to pound them back on after they are cleaned.
My personal Henckel knives, at least once/week I notice a knife missing, I may find it in the cardboard recycle bin, or in the dumpster.
Flatware, year to date I am missing 347 forks, sure they only cost me $1.45 for a dozen, but when you lose 2 gross of them in 7 months, there is a problem! I even added a magnetic flatware interceptor to the garbage can, I think they see it as a challenge and their goal is to defeat the flatware interceptor.
Branded Pilsner & pint beer glasses, oh look how nicely the shatter when those hit the floor. At least 4 a day are lost, I may go to disposable plastic because of this/
Watching product dates,
everything gets dated when it comes in, posters all over the prep area stating “First in, First out, LOOK AT DATES, USE OLDEST STOCK FIRST”
That still gets ignored
I’m betting I could replace these people with a coked up monkey swinging a large hammer and less stuff would be destroyed, and more quality work would get done.
Mind you, we do not hire anyone under 21 years of age, and our entry level staff (dish/drivers) are getting paid in excess if $14.00/hour. And everyone one of these guys has previous restaurant experience.
The labor force here is so sparse, that if I let them go, I will probably not be able to get replacements for them.
