framed and overworked……..Wal Mart McDonald’s manager

First of all let me say that everyone who knows me says I am friendly and cheery,I say this not to blow my own horn, but to above all defend myself. I already know many will attack me….LOL

Anyway I first joined Mickey D’s in 1997,it was my very first job and i was 16 (fresh out of high school )I really enjoyed waking up every morning at 4 a.m. to go to work because I became very good friends with all the people I worked with,including all the managers.When I got married I moved out of town so I had no choice but to leave my job.I very comfortably played the role of Housewife but when we moved back to town I decided I wanted to go back to work I was at a “DESK”job for 3 years and it did not compare to when I was in fast food so I went back to Mickey D’s

I know what you are thinking…..”why in the hell leave an 8-5 $9.00/hr job for McDonald’s?”….well because I do have a dream of someday owning my own restaurant,I truly am a people person and not to mention that I love to talk and meet new people.

I thought all was pretty and pink until I was sent to Wal-Mart McDonald’s…at first I enjoyed my job so much I actually founf excuses to be there even when not required of me.The crew pwople I worked with quickly became my good friends and to this day one of them became like my sister….but when I assumed management position it all changed….for the worse.

i was overloaded with responsibilities,duties and expectations but underpaid. I witnessed time theft from the store manager,cash theft from swing managers and product theft from just about everyone at the store. For the most part none of that bothered me what did bother me was this fat girl everyone at the store refers to as Phen-fat girl,she showed us to be one thing but turned out to be the complete opposite of what she showed.

I trusted 100% until she started stealing from the safe and trying to frame me,she would call the store manager when I was not insight and make up outrageous stories that everyone knew about but me! and more than anything I think she was jealous of me. I mean her “boyfriend” of 2 months is locked up on drug related charges, I have a husband who is in the police academy,she goes to a minority community college, I go to a prestigious university,like i said before she is soooo fat her uniform was special ordered(besides the point) and her ex-boyfriend hooked up with my best friend but she made my last few weeks at Mickey D’s a living hell she would always relieve me so in some starnge way money would come up missing she would not clean up and paperwork was never done not to mention she always took a bag pack full of food home and she would do refunds that were then pinned on me. I tried talking to our district supervisor about this situation but he seemed to have cared and blew me off.

Another thing at this store I was a manager at this store for 7 months and was given 1 yes ONE shirt only to wear no nametag (yet I was always yelled at about not having a proper uniform) and when I requested more shirts I was told it was not in the stores budget. I was only a “swing manager” but yet I had the responsibility of putting up our truck order,putting in thr orders,making crew schedules,catching up food safety book and if Phen-fat girl did not complete daily cash sheet I had to do it.I alwys had to borrow crew people form other stores to work with me because store manager though I could handle a whole 9 hour shift alone getting paid at the rate of a normal crew person but doing the job of 3.

So i finally left so now I am still going to school I work in a hospital (since my major involves medicine) and I now collect unemployment. Piece of advice….BEWARE OF THOSE 28 OR 40 YEAR OLD HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUTS WHO THINK BECOMING A MCDONALDS MANAGER IS A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT IN LIFE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE FIGURED OUT THEY NOT ONLY RUN MCDONALDS BUT ALSO THE WORLD…..THOSE ARE THE REAL ASSHOLES IN THE BUSSINES.
