There’s been a lot of chatter lately (via Facebook) over the some-what rude/inconsiderate/lazy salespeople that cruise our local shops.
And no I’m not talking about customer service (yes, I too think customer’s are idiots), I’m talking about the way casual staff are treated.
So why do managers at dead-end jobs think they are so above everyone else?
Just recently a post was put on the Hungry Jack’s Facebook page (Burger King for most of you) that read ‘felt sorry for the poor girl working...who got absolutely blasted by her bitch of a manager in front of everybody...and from what I understand the girl was new!’
Sass & Bide have also copped some Facebook hate with their page receiving an angry complaint about the salesgirls’ attitude problem recently towards another worker. Over 40 people commented on the status agreeing. The post has since been removed.
In fact, look on most company Facebook pages and many will include complaints about the way staff are treated. Sadly, most of these are deleted.
When I first started working at 15, I had people above me in a dead-end job who thought they were everything amazing and could treat the workers below them like shit.
So this is a post for all the people who’ve been in jobs where they’ve been treated badly by those above them.
And to those ladies who are still at the same job, in the same position, still saying ‘do you want fries with that?’:
Treat that little 15 year old well, because in ten years they’ll not only be making more money than you, but you’ll probably be working for them. Ha.
