Cracker Barrel / sexism, racism & favoritism
I have been working for Cracker Barrel Retail Store of Milford, CT for over 4 months or so by now. During my whole time of working there I have been extremly experiencing Sexism, Racism & Favoritism.
During my Evaluation Period, my manager Rodney A. have been very friendly and nice to me, he would say "Here is my Full Time employee! I am so excited about you!". Well, I was excited too! I though it would a nice place to work with a nice and sweet people around, well, I was wrong!
During my second day of working there, Rodney A. came over to me and called me "Baby!", I looked at him and let him know that very time, that I don't like being called "Baby" by my manager, plus I have a boyfriend who is to-be my fiance. Rodney A. didn't like these. That very same day I have moved from his "Favorites" List to "Unfavorites" List.
All of his employees are young white college girls! There is no guy working at the Retail Store!
So the Favorites are the ones that allow him to call themselves names such as "Sweety", "Teddy Bear", "Honey", etc. One of the girls that I knew quit from there in 2 weeks after being employed, because she didn't feel comfortable with all the attention coming from Rodney A.
So Favorites gets the most hours to work, raise and all of the nice and friendly attitude.
While Unfavorites get as much as only 3 hours per week to work, which is against Connecticut State Law, and average employee have to work at least 4 hours per week! I doubt anyone can make a living by working only 3 hours per week!
In a hand book it says that each new employee will be getting their Reviews done in 30 days after being employed, after that the Review will be given every 3 months. Well, I got my Review done in 45 days of working there, and Rodney A. said that I have Failed it and he will be doing another Review in 15 more days. I still don't understand why I failed it, I am being very polite towards everybody and I always meet/beat the Sales Goals for my working shift! Well, it has been 60 more days and I never gotten my Review, neither I got my new apron. I'm still an "Rising Stat" while people who actually got hired after me is already at Par Level!
They are trying to be "The Best Restaurant in USA", well, after me getting such a treatment from them, I don't think I would ever want to work/eat/shop there at all times.
