I got a new job but the store doesn't open til around mid November, I have to do training and store set up but I'm not sure when that is or if it's even paid. Currently I'm in fast food and have been for just over 3 years, my store doesn't care about their staff and is honestly such a disgusting environment.
I reported a manager 3 times for emotional abuse, every time they just got rid of my report and acted like I had never submitted it, even when I submitted one to the store owner, they did nothing. We finally got a meeting with the head manager and the manager I was reporting but only because my mum went in and demanded a meeting. Throughout the whole meeting was just the head manager dismissing and defending the other managers actions so that she didn't get in trouble, I ended up crying and leaving early. They thought it was a successful meeting.
I have been treated like garbage since I started and the managers are just getting worse, a manager I use to get along with is now extremely snarky and a huge asshole. He made an ex manager, ex crew and I all cry one shift and never apologised. I break down at least once or twice a week on my shifts, and when he was asked what was wrong with me he said I don't know, I'm not a therapist and stormed off without anyone asking me.
Today I vomitted my medicine and cried from how much pain I was in, but they told me I couldn't go home unless I found someone to fill the shift (to which the manager admitted she knew there was no one who could). Crew aren't allowed to cry on counter because then customers get concerned and managers get spoken to, so I broke down and went on counter and they sent me home straight away. They're literally more concerned about getting a customer complaint than me vomitting/passing out at work.
So I've decided to leave early, I was going to stay until my new job started but this job has already destroyed my mental health and pushed me to my limits far too often. This means I'll have about a month or two of unemployment. I have a little money saved up but I don't want to risk it not being enough to get through.
My commissions have always been open and always will be, but now I actually really need commissions. I'm sorry this turned into a huge rant :< I'm honestly just so fed up with this workplace and their 'ethics'.
www.furaffinity.net/full/12896… These are my prices here, they're fixed and don't change with design complexity (unless your characters design is like 50 colours and a million patterns). I'm also going to see if I can get some expanding foam or resin and start casting fursuit head bases again for some extra cash. If you could spread the word that would be really great and I would really really appreciate it !!
