actually its the best store in the area... lol i rather eat there than any fast food place for miles =3
its owned by a couple, and they care a lot.
hair happens sometimes anywhere. i trust my store more than others on that front, and usually everyone keeps their hair in check. its just this one girl, when she works with me, which isnt often because she only works 1 shift a week, sometimes not even then, as punishments they take away shifts, and she pulls shit with other people too, just no one as much as me. ... i think its because when i get angry, i literally can't fucking talk lose speech ability. so its easy to get away with it cuz i can't keep her in line. -_-; and today was worse than ALL the others she pulled fucking everything one after another.
and my store doesn't have a this is one person's responsibility thing. we have a split thing among the employees because it is easier that way, organizes the tasks we need to do quickly. but EVERYTHING is the responsibility of both people, if you finish your task faster you help with the next one, even if its not "yours". ... least in theory anyways. they dont care who does what, as long as its done in the end and everything looks good. if its not its both people's fault. if you have a problem with someone not working, you talk to the wife, and she will talk to them, take shifts away if necessary. but, for the shift your working, it has to be done and done well or its on you too. cuz if its not done it falls to the opener to do, which is always one of the owners they dont let anyone else. and leaving something for the boss to fix isn't a great plan.
the wife is the one that runs everything, writes the checks the schedule, works 8 hours a day every day where the husband works 2 hours a day on weekdays. both turn up randomly to deliver things, check on things, etc etc.
i consider myself as working for her, more than him. unfortunately he blames anything and everything on the most senior person on staff, which is currently me.
With the wife, i won't get in trouble. with him, i will get huge huge fucking shit. to give you an idea of this:
the last time she went on vacation and he had to open the store.
he noticed the walls have marks on them, starts yelling at me about people scraping the tables on the walls when we move them to clean the floors. i am like okay? we will be more careful. i instruct the person doing the tables to be careful about that. next day he freaks out on me again about it and i try to tell him i wasn't even the one cleaning the floors.... he is like are you working? yes. its your fault. later that night a customer pays $5 in dimes, next morning he fucking screams at me because the soup bowls were not topped up (not empty, but not totally full) and he accuses me of cracking a roll of dimes to give him more work to do counting them in the morning. yells at me about the tables again. i get actually hysterical. have to go to the bathroom because i am hyperventalating and can't fucking breath, i come back out to get screamed at again.
When the wife came back i threatened to quit, because it was that bad. she talked to her husband and separated our shifts so i don't work with him anymore. which means i dont work days anymore. he still occasionally comes in though, and if i ever leave things the way she leaves things he will come in on my shift and scream at me. its just smoke, she has the power, and is far more reasonable. but its still not pleasant.
i still rather work for them because the subway stores in the area sucks. i transferred to that one and walk 45 minutes every day to it, from the one that is 15 minutes walk away, because the more local one is infinitely worse. the owners try to cheat the employees. it's also owned by a couple, but the husband is the one that works, and the wife owns. she has him by the balls though and doesn't understand business. he understands business and you can talk to him and he is reasonable. ... but if his wife disagrees he will toss you under the bus. Once he told me to do something, and i did, then she had a problem with it and im like but he told me to, and she is like i dont think he would. he was sitting right there looking down, looking like the guilty peace of shit he is and says not a damn fucking thing.
and the list goes on and on about shit i hate about them.
... including showing up at my door because a closer quit on them just before his closing shift and they needed me to take it. i had been up 36 hours cuz of my wargame starting a new server, and i was building up quick. getting ahead. because i had 3 days in a row off, perfect timing, why not? when i tried telling them why i couldn't they were like but that isn't our fault, and it is a videogame, this is your job. ... i am not on call, what i do on my own fucking time is my business. they can fuck off.
other store i havent worked at but is notorious for assholes. both the customers and the employees. then there is another store that is even farther away, but the owners there are cheap as fuck and don't even support what subway dictates. Example, you are supposed to be allowed as much of the veggies as you want. they stick to the formula, no extra unless you pay for it. 6 olives on a footlong, no exceptions, for example. and they watch their employees like a hawk via camera. etc etc. they are crazy too.
like i said, my store is the good one. normally i am good with it, its just this one fucking person... gah =[ better believe im going to talk to the wife about her, but atm she is on vacay, part of why this girl acted up to that level on this shift i am sure. i cant call her to crack the whip and i have no power. when she gets back... the wife has this girl on shit list already, told me she thinks the girl is a bitch. i hope she gets fired it is a long time coming...
and this shift that i am ranting about was 9 hours long and full of hell. nearly dead luckily cuz of the rain. but it just gave us more time to fight.
