Sonic Drive In / treatment of employees who are minors
My little 16 year old sister got a job there not but a week ago, she started yesterday on her training which consisted of her standing in front of a computer with no break from 10 am to 3pm, there was no sound to hear the training videos and no chair to sit in. Not only could she not hear the videos to understand what's expected of her at work, but she then had to take tests on what she was supposed to learn, causing her to guess on her answers. She started actually working today, and they stuck her right on drive thru and told her she wouldn't be left alone and she'd be going home anywhere between 3-5 and it was unlikely that she'd be there till 5. Not only did they leave her alone DURING HAPPY HOUR, but she didn't get clocked out till 6 pm. She had no break in this 8 hour shift, and she was stuck at drive thru the entire time. She had a manager throw buns at her while she was helping a customer at the window, another one told her to tell a customer the 6" hot dog was a "little weiner", and didn't cut the crap when she asked if her manager was being serious, so not only did she embarrass my sister, but also the company. She was even called a b**** by a customer. And finally, at the end of the night, they counted her register money and she was 80 - some dollars short, which obviously wasn't her because she was using a calculator all day long, so after trying to pin it on her and failing because she defended herself, they told her not to worry about it for now and they'd try to "figure it out". They've had problems in the past with some of the managers stealing from the registers. If this doesn't get pushed on someone else, because they stole, then that goes on my sisters plate.
Her first day actually working she left crying, and the cherry on top of her screwed up Sonic Milkshake was that she had to walk home in the rain. No employee deserves to feel this way. Especially a 16 year old.
