Lately at work there has been a few changes. Last week our GM left after working in the same spot for 7 years. It wasn’t his choice as the head office required him at another restaurant located an hour away cause they needed help there. I think if he had a choice he would have preferred to stay.
Last night the Kitchen Manager who was assigned to open another restaurant nearby about 6 months ago got it up and running well then all of a sudden he is back at our restaurant due to the fact the kitchen manager was promoted to GM to replace the one that is leaving. I talked to him last night and he wasn’t too thrilled about leaving his baby that he helped open after such a short time.
Then another supervisor that works with us has given her notice due to the fact that she is having issues getting custody of her child just due to the fifty hour work weeks she is putting in and the questioning as to whether she would have any time for her child should she win custody.
My neighbour who works in another chain restaurant said that is the way it is working in the corporate restaurant climate. When they transfer you somewhere and you refuse , they just buy you out and say you don’t have a job anymore.That happened to one of the managers where he worked.
So as far as working in corporate and being a supervisor and moving up to manager the best prerequisite would be to just be single and younger.
I will just stick to getting the teaching career going and being a waiter and having some time for my family.
