I hope you have a great Christmas season, undoubtedly your busiest time of the year with all of the untrained newbies running the place.
You had loyal employees who not only knew how to run the place but also enjoyed working together. You had people with between 5 and 15 years experience but you just had to push it.
You dropped wages, cut hours, took away benefits, demoted people and brought in untrained teenagers to cover the hours that you cut from your full time employees. You eliminated the two management postions and asked us to apply to work for you part time!
Did you really expect us to stay for Christmas and sign something that said our hours would be cut from 30-40 per week in December to 8-12 hours per week in January? You just hired twice as many people to cover us because you refuse to have full time positions.
To have you interview me as if we have never met when I have been working for you for 8 years is beyond insulting...did you seriously ask me what my work experience was? Could you not have told me before this charade of an interview that there were no full time positions available. I had to get a letter...IN THE MAIL...saying I have been offered a part time position, with no benefits at $4.00 less per hour!
Luckily I found a management postion elsewhere and I'm working on getting jobs for the other guys and girls, too. Nice try telling me I had to give 2 weeks notice and couldn't start my new job right away. Your letter states this is a new job so I actually don't have to give you any notice at all. —You're a mean one Mr. Grinch
