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--
