    Advice to Management

    I got hired- after a few days I quickly changed my mind and quit. The managers were very chill, however after turning in my uniform and picking up my check, I received a unprofessional email from what has to be a manager or employee stating I do not look good in my casual clothes, they are too reveling and I am not classy. The email has literally only been given to them as I had just made it, smooth move on their part.
