Super 8 Complaint - WORST Job I've EVER had!
NIAGARA FALLS, NEW YORK -- I am an employee at the Super 8 Hotel on Rainbow Blvd. in Niagara Falls, New York. I've only been working there a little over 1 month & I honestly CAN NOT stand my job. I have to force myself to get up & go to work. I was promised 40 hours a week & I get MAYBE half of that. I have bills to pay & I'm not even treated fairly among other employees. My manager, is the only one who treats me fairly well. The owner always has something rude to say about my performance or about my attire. The 1st 2 weeks of working there, I was getting complaints from the owner stating that I was messing this or that up. He refused to say anything directly to me, always going through another employee. Problem is, I was TRAINING! Everyone must learn how to do things, & the owner should have been helping me to learn those things, instead of treating me the way he did (& still does). I come to work on time, despite hating this job, I stay late (with no overtime), I do my job correctly, & the customers ADORE me. I'm tired of being treated unfairly by this company. I recently dyed my hair, it was supposed to come out a dark, but shiny red, but it came out pink! I don't have the extra money to fix it, seeing as I have fines to pay off in Missouri & Texas, I have 2 months of rent backed up (because they are not giving me the hours I was promised), & I have other things to pay for ON MY OWN. I have to deal with rude customers daily. I may be a front desk clerk, but I'm usually on my feet at all hours of the day. I clean windows in the lobby, clean doors, sweep the floor & stairs, check rude customers in who complain about the price being more because they went through a travel agency, etc. Then on top of that, the owner is always (excuse my language) up my ass about my hair, my attire, the way I do things, etc. I know my rights & honestly, I think this hotel needs to be shut down & the owner should NOT be allowed to run another hotel. It's not just me, he treats his employees like garbage! Customers NEVER complain about what I'm wearing, or about my hair, or nose ring. They always complain about the cleanliness of the hotel or the fact that there is only 1 handicapp acc. room. Another thing...I'm always told to take out my nose ring, or wear the (itchy & oversized) uniform shirt, yet EVERY single other employee dosen't have to. One girl, who's shift I take over a lot, has a nose ring, & wears WHATEVER she wants, is never told ANYTHING! On top of that, the drawer always comes up short after her shift! I'm not going to continue to be treated like this! I'm a born American, he's what...Italian?! I KNOW MY RIGHTS, I GREW UP IN THIS COUNTRY & I REFUSE TO LET SOMEONE WALK ALL OVER ME JUST BECAUSE I'M A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS! I was hired to do a job & I DO THAT JOB WELL! I've yet to have ONE complaint from a customer, so why should I be forced to change myself, when the guests love the way they're being treated when I'm on shift? Land of the free MY ASS!
