I've been working at Wendy's for about a year now. I'm one of their only sandwich makers. One day, I was working a day shift from 7:00 to 4:00. At around lunch rush, I was put on sandwiches. I'm making sandwiches and my manager complains that I'm not calling out orders. This is not normal for me because in the ten months I was working there, I never had to call out sandwiches due mostly to the fact that the other managers didn't care if I did or not. As long as I let them know if I was holding a sandwich, they were okay with it.
Well, I was calling them out as asked. At one point, I told them I was holding a sandwich while waiting on meat for it. They had a sandwich in the drive thru lane so they grabbed it and sent it out to the wrong car. It was a spicy chicken meant for the car after the burger. The manager who told me to call out sandwiches yelled at me and asked why I didn't tell him. I told him I did and was immediately hushed. He told me I needed to be louder. So, when the sandwich came up, I said it louder. Apparently too loud as he got mad.
That same day, around 2:30, I was making a half salad for drive thru. Someone up front ordered a grilled sandwich and I went to grab the chicken but realized I didn't have the grilled. I told the manager that he needed to go up front and tell them it would be an eleven minute wait. He said okay and walked to the front. Later, he comes to me and asked me, yelling I mind you, where is the grilled sandwich. I looked in my drawer, pointed, and said, "With what grilled?" After this, he calls me into his office.
When I get into the office, he starts yelling and telling me that he is tired of my 'attitude' and he starts going off on how I am a terrible worker. I tried to say something and he said, quote on quote, "No, no. Let me f***ing finish!". He continues to yell at me until I get a break. I tell him that working sandwiches all the time is stressful. I apologized. I said to him, " I mean, how do you think this makes me feel?" His answer was extremely unprofessional, and I quote, " Frankly, I don't give a f**k."
I told him I wasn't going to take this and I left the office, clocked out and went home. I am not putting this out here to fume, but just giving insight to what we deal with.
