Waffle House / employee treatment
My roommate works at the Waffle House here in town as a grill operator. She has worked off and on for Waffle House in a number of different locations for about 14 years and NEVER has she EVER had so much trouble in one store. Her previous boss was bad, but her new boss is a racist peice of crap. It was thought that under new management that the store would run better but its not. She has hired only family and friends, only hires black or ghetto white girls. 90% of the employees are drug addicts be it pills or others like weed, and none are there to "sell eggs only ###" as my roomie puts it. First shift gets everything pulled for the shift that they will need, Second shift is the prep shift and NEVER does the prep work, and Third shift NEVER has enough of anything to do a good sale. Not to mention that third shift, the shift she works, has the WORST employees ever.
Her boss doesn't seem to care when my roomie, we'll call her C, complains to her, but if anyone else does, then her boss, we'll call her J, will deal with it. Her co-workers on third are T and S. T and S are friends and tend to cause a LOT of trouble for C. They say things that aren't true, flirt with everything that walks in and has a penis, and comes in drunk, high, or out of uniform. If C were to do any of these things she would be suspended or fired. C told J that the reason she didn't come in to work for a weekend was a mental break down along with a few other things, doctors note and all, and J was the ONLY one she told, now all of 2nd and 3rd shift know why she was out.
Her boss J told her that while she was gone, drama in the store was down, which is ### because C got four voicemails from customers calling to complain about service for the weekend she was out AND the two she was suspended (She only works Fri, sat, and Sun). People were walking out because their food was horrible, the service was even worse, and the general experience was just bad.
C is a master grill operator and gets paid minimum wage when she should be making 10 or more an hour. She is the lowest paid cook there but is only 1 of 2 out of the 7 cooks on staff that are qualified as a master grill operator. She is not allowed to wear her ball cap that says MASTER GRILL OPERATOR because its "not uniform code" and it makes the other cooks "jealous" according to J. The hat IS uniform code because it was given to her by CORPORATE not franchise. C is manager on 3rd because she is the cook, which makes her the boss when the boss isn't there, but NONE of the employees listen to her, and then she gets chewed out by J, even when J KNOWS that the employees don't listen.
T is going into the MIT program and came in higher than a kite, the district manager S, asked her if she was cause she looked it, and T said no, so S marked that she had a drug test when she didn't, but C had to actually go get one, and was STILL denied MIT when it came back clean, because she wasn't "qualified". She keeps getting passed up on raises and bonuses, but everyone else is getting theirs. Her boss J keeps putting into effect rules that are NOT Corporate rules, like no purses can be bigger than six inches long, and six inches deep... thats a dollar bill in length and depth... ###.
The list goes on and on about this bull that she has to put up with. C is at her wits end and would like to file a lawsuit against Waffle house but there is a paper she signed that says that basically she can't without finding a loophole somewhere, so if someone could help me out, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information you can give me.
