I just got fired

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I got this job 2 weeks ago. A diner, in a small itty bitty town. I have never done this kind of work before and told them that. On friday when I left the boss gave me my schedule for next week, I was to start training on Sundays to get a feel for how busy it gets. Today they called and told me I was just not working out, they can only pay so much and I was not learning fast enough. Excuse me? I have only been there 2 weeks, and THAT is the time to learn an entire restraunt!!?? I know who did this to me, this who thinks his you know what does not stink. Must be nice to be so secure in your job you can run cutthroat over other poeple lives. I did not take the job because I though it would be fun, I like a roof over my head and electircity is a bonus.

I'm so sorry, that really stinks. I hope you find something else soon. Sounds like that isn't a place you'd want to stay at very long anyway!

So was it the boss that "fired" you?? Or someone else. Why would they give you a schedule then fire you??

I hope you find another job soon.

Waitressing can be cutthroat depending on area and restaurant. I did that for awhile when I was 17 till I was close to 18. They really do want you to be a fast learner. When I waitressed I had to learn the whole restaurant layout, procedures when a customer in, computer, menu, plus how to carry a full tray in about 2 weeks or less time. And like you I had a co worker that thought her poo didn't stink. And we got into it one night (another thread) and I walked out and left. Boss ended up begging me back.

Anyways yeah it can be cutthroat. I hope you find something else soon.

I wasn't a waitress, I was hired as a cook, working the grill. I get that you have to learn fast, but jeeze, I can't learn an entire menu in two weeks, who can??? I was about the 6th to either get fired or quit the job, I can see why people quit it, not the best atmosphere to work in with Mr. Wonderful as the head cook. I was determined not to let him get to me, it was a job after all, not a social outing.
About giving me a schedule then giving me the ax, I can only guess that poo boy had a talk with them about me over this weekend (my days off) , he really hated my guts. He has been with them for 10 years, jolly good for him, big fat "many cuss words"
Seasonal work is summer here, unfortunatly for me. It is a tourist town, but not for winter, the snowmobilie people go farther north. There is a brief surge during deer season, (gun, not bow hunting) but that is only 2 weeks. Its a summer fishing town. They are going to loose some business, I know my folks will not go there anymore, and they have close friends that will no doubt back that up.

--Thanks everyone for the vibes--
