Wendys Informative - Not Training Employees
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA -- I am the mother of a 19 year old who recenty chose Wendy's, as her first place of employment. My daughter is a very easy going person that is a full time student and cares about the people with whom she comes in contact with. She was excited about her her lil job in the beginning,
starting her life as an independent person wanting to create her own way. She has only been employed by Wendy's for 3 months until June 20th. I had my husband go get her and told him to tell her to leave the uniform because I didn't want to hear another word about the place. She said on her first day the manager put her on the registar and showed her a few things. She said the next day they put her on the registar again, and no one stayed near her while she was supposed to be in training. She would come home complaining about how they were getting mad ay her for calling them to help her out when she said that she needed assistance. She said that other crew members were shouting out to her about being slow and not knowing what she was doing. She said that she practically trained herself. Well, about two weeks into the job, the manager who she said stayed in his office smoking told her one evening that her regiatar was short $28.00. She said that she told him well, other people are using this registar too. So, he didn't charge her for the lost. Then on another occasion, she came home saying that the manager held a meeting saying that the enventory was between 400-and 500.00 short. Well she said that she told them, that she didn't have anything to do with it she just started. This was the final straw that broke the camel's back with me. She calld when her shift was over which I thought she was calling for us to pick her up from work, instead she said that she was in trouble because her registar was 60.00 short. She mentioned that a mamager went into her registar during her shift and she assured me that she was careful while operating it. She told me how they threatened her with the police, as she maintained her innocence. Well, I explained this to my husband who was ferious by this time. So, he went and paid them the 60.00 to clear up the mess. This experience has kind of shaken our daughter's spirit a little bit because she feels like an excape goat for the mischieviousness that is taking place in that store. We wanted her to find a job so that she can become aware of what the work world is like. If she has to treated like such and a criminal, when the authority figures are not doing their jobs, I'll just keep giving her an allowance for not washing dishes. At least I know that she won't be accused of things that I feel she is not capable of. I just feel sorry for the next young adult who will be excited about Wendy's being their first job and have to deal with that crew over there on South Claiborne Ave.
