Okay, so I’ve worked at this movie theatre for about 8 months, right?
At first it was wonderfully easy because there were enough people to cover all of the jobs. Normally we have about 3 people working concession, and 3 people working ushers. (Usher- they go in and clean up after a movie has finished, and they clean up the lobby or just clean things in general) (just saying in case someone didn’t know)
I tend to work usher shifts because I get so nervous behind the register.
Then we got a new CEO who is all about “Customer Satisfaction” but that’s a whole lot of bullshit. The dude is JUST about money. He’s making my manager cuts shifts down to the bare minimum of workers so they don’t have to pay extra people.
ON TOP of that, my manager has also been shoving shifts together! And pulling random jobs out of his ass!
As an usher, I’m now expected to work a 5 hour shift with no breaks (because harky har it’s only 5 hours,, who needs a break during a 5 hour shift?) (me, Bitch, with this work load) also doing lobby, bathroom, and Auditorium Checks TM at the top of every hour. (We have 18 large auditoriums)
Also, it’s just me. No other person working Usher. No one to help me clean, and no one to clean when I’m doings those BS checks. Also, in the little free time I have, which is about 5-20 minutes MAYBE, I am expected to either patrol the hallways, clean the already clean lobby, or help concession with the lines.
But oh boy you wanna know why we have such long lines????? Because we only have one person on register, and the other in the back trying to keep stock up.
I’m boutta quit this joint if this kind of bullshittery continues on
Tl;dr: there’s less people working because of a shitty new CEO, which means more work load for the ones who ARE working. And I hate it.
