Unfortunately, that's pretty much how it is in the fast food business no matter where you go. My son worked at McDonald's when he was 16 and he finally quit because he got tired of being constantly yelled at. Once he was sick - pale as a ghost and puking - and the manager yelled at him on the phone when he called in sick. She called back later to see if he was feeling better and could maybe come in for part of his shift. She was nice as pie to me but when I gave the phone to him I could hear her yelling from across the room and she wrote him up for missing work. They scheduled him to close at 1 AM on a Saturday night and then scheduled him to come back at 11 AM the next morning. He finally gave up on it and quit. The turnover in fast food is huge, and the way the treat and take advantage of the kids who work there is surely a big part of that. I doubt it will be any better if your daughter changes jobs unless she finds something other than fast food.Originally Posted by myrosiedog
My son went on to work in a grocery store deli/kitchen, and now that he's 21 and in college he still works there. They have always been very accomodating for school activitites, and the nice thing was that the kitchen always closed around 8 pm so he was never out past 9:30. They also keep the kids on staff so when they go off to college they can still work during school vacations and during the summer without having to re-apply for the job, plus they have a scholarship program that the kids can apply for. Something like that might be worth looking into for your daughter.
