Burger King Complaint - Bad Managers - Employee Treatment
ROMNEY, WEST VIRGINIA -- I have worked at Burger King for 3 years now. Since I turned 16, I have been working for $5.15 And advancing to a whopping $6.55. Through out these last 3 years, I have had to deal with a lot of stress and strain that the managers (who are on a power trip) insist on placing upon the workers. In particular, this manager, from the day I started, has ruined my working environment, home life, and relationships with my co-workers. Recently, I was ill, I was suppose to work that night but had a fever and was sick to my stomach, and pregnant. I called my day manager 5 hours in advance, and informed him I would not be in and to give me the numbers of employees that did not work that night. I called everyone who did not work that night and could not find anyone to replace me. I also called the person who I was covering for and told him I could not cover his shift due to illness. The night manager came in and wrote me up, and thought that she had the power to fire me, which she does not. This manager( who is on the power trip) has ruined a lot of young men and womens careers. She even makes the general manager cry.
I find this absurd that this is allowed to continue.. This bullying. I'm not the only one who sees this employee abuse. You can ask anyone in the Burger King that I work at, and they will tell you. Today, a young woman, who was suppose to become back up manager, was told to clock and out and leave and was sassed by this manager... She was written up for voluntary quitting.. When she was told to leave and she lost her job.. Same manager.. Also today she told everyone that if I was not fired then she would quit. In this case it would be the best if she quit. I got written up for being sick.. So did the girl who was fired today, we both refuse to sign the write ups. The health department insist on not allowing sick employees in a food serving business area.
If anyone can help me with this issue please let me know. Thank you.
