Finally I have a voice.

When I handed in my resignation letter at my restaurant job, I wrote the reason why I was quitting being about the manager that was harassing and bullying me. I also told him exactly what he said to me. Never did I imagine he would get head office involved. 
They called me tonight to ask me how I was doing, and to get a bit more information on the situation. They were very kind, and wanted to make sure I knew that I had a voice, and that they were very upset about the situation and it will be dealt with. 

Here is what actually happened that night, the reason I quit... (names removed to protect there identities)...
The manager started off the night by yelling at me and threatened my job telling me to keep busy. So I went out of my way to keep busy. After 2 hours I went to the back to have a drink. The manager followed me back there and yelled at me again, this time in front of my coworker and the kitchen staff. I tried to tell him that I hadn't had a drink in 2 1/2 hours and I was dehydrated but he told me off saying he was tired of hearing all the stupid excuses. He again asked me if I wanted to keep my job threatening that he was going to fire me if he had to talk to me again. He then asked me if I knew why I was getting shitty hours, I said it was because of my availability and he replied “no your getting shitty hours and shitty sections because of your shitty work ethics. Your hours and sections are a reflection of you” He then told me to really think hard about what he’s talked to me about if I want to keep my job. Then just before I left he said again, in front of everyone, to think hard about what he talked to me about. 

He has upset so many workers there its ridiculous. I can't work there if he is there. The only way I could go back was if they fired him. But I have no idea whats going to happen.

I started looking for a new job today, but so far I haven't had much luck. This time of year its hard to find a job. I completely missed hiring season. 
But we shall see, 
I'll keep you updated.

Thank you for all the support and comments
My life feels like I'm on a never ending roller coster in the middle of a storm.

  1. I had a boss like that. She was always saying if I didn't get on ADHD medication then she would have to fire me, and telling me how slow I was and incapable of doing anything. I ended up getting fired though. She changed the schedule without me knowing so it was a no call- no show.
    I hope your old boss gets what is coming to him. No one should be treated like that. He should know that running a business should be conducted with kindness or you never get anywhere.
    I'm sure there are still jobs out there looking to hire. Good luck. :)
