Papa John's Pizza Informative - Employee v. Manager
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- When I applied for a job at Papa Johns pizza it was for a full time summer job and a part time job during the school semester. After working 2 months with the company I informed my manager that I was unable to work certain days during the week due to after school sports and college classes, giving him a months notice. Shortly a few days after of informing my boss via note of cutting my hours for a period of time, I was let go. Its not the point that I was "let go" because I wasn't able to fill their needs as a full time employee, what rubbed me the wrong way was that after working on a Monday night with my MANAGER and ASSISTANT MANAGER, there was no notice before starting my shift.
At the end of my shift my assistant manager informed me that it was unreasonable to cut my hours for school. Not only do I think it is completely unprofessional to be abruptly let go, but I also think that while working with my manager during the night he could have given me a heads up or discussed my scheduling. As a student my grades come first and I persoanlly am not bothered by the "let go", but just as employees give a 2weeks notice about leaving I feel working establishments should also do the same.
My opinion of Papa Johns as a working place has completely changed and as a former employee being quite disgusted with the way I was "let go" I will never purchase products from the company again. Any company who feels that extra time off for a higher education is unreasonable not only loses my respect as a work place, but loses my respect as a customer.
