No idea, one of my co-workers talked to the managers and they didn't stack together. And then apparently he called the union and they said it was too close together as well.

I'm missing a raise too. Going to wait to see if it's on my next cheque or else it's time to bitch

Why?

This thread is a good idea, but there should be a rule that if you're going to expose a secret, there are reasons behind it, instead of just saying something like "Don't eat at mcdonalds, just trust me" .

but did you know that chevron has a pact with shell so at shell you may be getting chevron gas or visa virsa. They just add a bit of techron to the shell gas to make it Chevron gas.,

People just carelessly left them there.

I worked in the Airport one before and the lot guys will always find some goodies in the cars. Best of all, the customers are probably at the other side of the world when they realized they left something behind.

Rumor has it that someone found a dildo in the truck of a car. I rented a car to my friend and he told me he found ladies under garment in the car.

- If the company that you work for hire contracted janitors to clean your premises, make sure you wash your own eating utensils after you use them and not leave it in the sink for the janitors to wash cause they use the same scrub they cleaned the toilet with for the eating ware.

- Translink spends around $600,000 for each trolley bus on the road and an additional $80,000 annually for a mechanical diagnostic software for each bus from the manufacturer. Thats about millions of dollars per year just on software licensing in troubleshooting buses.

- As crappy of our public transportation network is, we actually cover the largest geographical public transportation network in North America and have one of the largest bus fleets behind Houston, TX.

- If you work for Translink, you get 3 weeks vacation to start, 17 PAID time-off days per year, 10 paid sick days annually, and can take up to a year for leave of absence among other great perks. Most Translink employees work only 4 days per week.

Working in the jewelry industry, did you know...

- no matter how sentimental your piece of jewelry is, if it's cheap, ugly, poorly made, etc, the staff will laugh and make fun of it once you step out the door
- sometimes the things you bring in to get appraised isn't worth the paper that your appraisal is gonna be printed on....yes, even though it may look expensive
- the bigger diamond you get, the better deal you get. (small stones = higher margin)
- at any given time, if you're walking through downtown, you just might be walking past someone that has $40, 50, 60,000 or more in stones in their briefcase, pocket etc.
- Blue Nile doesn't own any of their stones on their websites. Suppliers list their stones and BN tacks on a selling fee of the stone sells

I hope I see you in real life and fuck you up, ass face.

What the fuck makes you think you have the right to fuck with anyone's food? FOR YOUR FUCKING INFORMATION, the restaurant closes 10 mins after I get in, not 10 mins before. If the front of the line staff feel like serving me, then you're shit out of luck and you better make my food and make it right. You're just someone's bitch, don't act like you're the biggest motherfucker in town because you can fuck with someones food.

I wonder how many times my food's been fucked with without me knowing.

If I ever caught someone doing this, the first thing that would go through my head would be how best to hurt that motherfucker.

37.5 hours per week/4 work days. You do the math.
Lunch is usually 30 minutes, but most of them take longer than that.

All new products in a grocery store, such as a new item, the company ( ex kraft acosta) pays money for that new item, for middle shelf space then you think
Canada Bread ( witch maple leaf owns) throws more bread out then u can ever imagine.

when you donate to a charity over the phone, they will call you for 10-12 other charities and they won't stop calling until you threaten them that you will press charges. saying "take me off the list" won't cut it.

NOVUS - We only have about 4 to 5 CSR working during the most busy time(around 11am to 5pm). Usually there are only 2 to 3 CSR working. But customer thinks we have mroe than 20+ppl working lol.

Wal-mart. When customer return an item we can't sell it or send it back to manfactures czo the product is in perfect condition. So in those case we take out our little siccors and cut it up and send it back for refund.

McDonald's- Use to have nuggets fights and when we are done we just cook the nuggets/recook them and give it to customers.

NCO- Everyone that works there don't care shit. All we do is make some lame excuse so customer gets off the phone and we can slack off.
