for something totally not even CLOSE to my fault.
Last Friday (a week ago) we got secret shopped. If you don't know what that is, the company hires somebody to come and grade you on your performance. Problem is, you don't know you're being graded until you get the report back.
So anyway..last week we were shopped at my job. Somebody (the boss isn't sure who)got shopped who wasn't wearing her nametag. That's like 10 points off, plus another 5 or so off for a 'bad greeting' (i.e. not saying How are you doing today, or something to that effect). Which wouldn't have been so bad if those were the ONLY points we lost.
But due to the way the food was prepared, we lost another 50 points,making our total score 50 point something. When the head managing partner of the resteraunt found out, he wanted to fire EVERYBODY who worked that shift, kitchen and cashiers. Even though it wasn't the cashiers' fault we lost all those points.
My boss was able to convince the partner NOT to fire us and told me that if we got fired from this resteraunt the company would make it damn near impossible for us to find any other job. Ever. Which has made me seriously scared. I don't like being this nervous.
So..I'm off to Monster.com to see what jobs I can scare up. Wish me luck!
