I'll miss it

Team Member (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsBoss was friendly and easy to work with.
The co-workers that I was scheduled to work with made work bearable because we were all team players.
The location was new and so everyone was trained for about a week.
Free smoothie each day scheduled for work.

ConsHow hard and dedicated you are isn't nearly enough acknowledged.
Employer would beat around the bush too much.

Advice to Senior ManagementHiring too many people all at once isn't fair to current employees since that means less hours for everyone. It would of been nice if you were straight up and said that I was being let go rather than that I was being put on call and continuing this for a month until I'm told by someone else that I was laid off, by your words. :-(
First, after working my third week there I was being put on call because of the weather which meant slow business, and then when I call up when the weather has been hotter than ever (perfect for business) he still refused to give me hours. Then three weeks later I'm told by someone else that my boss said that I've been laid off.
