Guest Threatening to Picket Business - Help!!! - Page 3

post #31 of 86

I didn't say to quit...I said to work elsewhere.  Surely there are other cake shops in the area of Whittier, CA?

But now it seems that OP has spoken with his boss about the issues he was having and seems to have worked out a solution.  Very good.

 

I know it is not easy to just up and get another job.

Well what kind of advice did you want? There really isn't anything you can do, not being the owner. I totally understand caring about your job and you seem very involved but ultimately the responsibility belongs to the owner. I think any employer would be happy to have an employee who cares as much as you.

I think that if you were advising a friend in a similar situation, with the same info you gave, you'd probably advise them to start looking for alternate employment too. People can only go by whats in your post, and in this case it sounded like you were pounding your head against a brick wall with a boss that won't listen to reason.

I'm glad that's not the case, hopefully this won't be an issue in the future.

@Sassyzan, no, I don't live in a vacuum. Thanks for asking.

 

@cakefat, I'm glad your company seeks legal and " how should I run this business " advice from the bottom tier, manual labor employees.

 

The OP stated himself that the business as been running for 3 years and that several times, he tried to give insight to the owner on some procedures that he should definitely implement to run smoothly. All of which seems to have been ignored over a lengthy period of time. The OP is obviously a kind and too caring of a person. He needs to just sit back, do the proper job his been doing all this time and stop caring about the way the owners want to run THEIR business. For some reason I doubt the OP salary reflects his work as a decorator / legal / business and management insights. Especially since he already tried over a lengthy period of time to get some things to change without avail.

 

And having a boss with poor business practices is hardly a reason to walk out the door. At least not until a better job is secured. And as far as everyone in here knows, a 200$ cake refund over a 3 year period might be a lot cheaper then getting boxes and doing things right. It's how the car industry works, as long as compensating damages and injuries is cheaper then a recall, they don't do recalls.

wow-you've got some issues.

 

It's called teamwork and that's how a business should operate.

I thought the same thing - if everyone who works as the lowly labourer ignored issues then changes and improvements that are required would never be implemented. Team work and communication are the key to a successful business.

  • a cake board with red & black icing smeared by hand all over the left side of the board, where there is no fallen cake pieces.
  • a cake on a board which is such a large board it couldn't fit on car seat without a 30 degree tilt.  But supposedly had been sitting on a car seat with two tennis racket handles pointing in that direction. Red icing on the racket handle
  • a kid with his hands & wrists so covered in icing that it is smeared over his wrists and up to his forearms and to the sides of his hands.

I should buy one and bury it in my back yard to use as a shelter in case of world war III or a zombie apocalypse.
