Maaaaan am I ever glad I never worked in a restaurant

1. I cant "fake" being happy for tips, so being server is out of the question
2. I can't trust myself around anyone elses food.
3. Pay is way to damn low.

For all of you in the food service industry, you have my pity and those getting out....High Five

Thanks for all the advice guys!

I am going in tomorrow morning and telling them I'm not coming back.

I hopefully have a job lined up. I'm going back where i was last summer. Groundskeeping for the local hospital. Its just a summer job, but it will give me time to find another job. I just have to make sure they haven't hired anyone yet.

I had another interview yesterday for sales with the largest legal publishing company in the country, if not the world.

I really hope they give me an offer, both managers that interviewed me loved me, and said i did/said all the right things. The first one even went through my program @ my school with many of the same teachers, so there are great hopes for it.

When i worked in construction, I did electrical work for my friend'* (now roomate) dad. He'* a master electrician, one of the better jobs I've had, learned a lot about things i'd never know otherwise, and picked up serious work ethic.

AAAAHHHH i hate being yelled at for no reason, if it was a normal person on the street they would have gotten a piece of my mind but i couldn't do anything. I just had to stand there and let them yell at me

You didn't have to sit there and take their yelling. You should have gotten up and unleashed your aggravations on them. Maybe it would help the staff they still have.

Usually I say keep what you have until you find another job because you never want to burn bridges. Employers look for that when going over your application/resume. They look for longevity also. I know a lot of people that have made careers out of working at restaurants and have made some damn good money doing so.

I worked at McD'* and BK when I was in high school but then moved into the office work.
Good luck on the job search!!

You didn't need to stand there and take anything. You should have turned around and walked out. Afterall...you quit. They owe you the last check on the normal payday and it'* over.

Best of luck on a new job.

I did 5 years of BK in HS/college days. Funny part was...my file was about 6 inches thick (no lie) and I couldn't get fired. New managers would come in and try to mold me into a better employee... they never quite made much progress, I knew how to run the store when I was a manager at 15.

i did find another job, thats why i didn't quit until today.

I was hoping that maybe i could talk some sense into them after they were done yelling but they weren't listening to a word i was saying. And finally one of the owners said to me "Why don't you just get out of here" in a really rude tone, so i said fine I'll leave. I'm just glad to be done with that heII-hole

Don't forget to call the district manager and tell them how rude the restaurant'* manager was towards you when you told him you were going to quit. District managers HATE when managers get pissy with employees when the want to quit. My mom was a district manager for Burger King in the greater Cleveland area. She fired 3 managers during her time there.
