So I’m a manager-in-training at my store. Last weekend, I worked an overnight shift (6pm-2am). We had plenty of help…3 managers and 2 crew. Anyways, night shift tends to be a little lazy with regards to food safety. I caught ALL of the managers handling food without gloves. Whenever McChicken or Filets would come up, they’d just throw it on the counter and not in the cabinet. Crew was handling raw meat without gloves. I’m fairly certain that if corporate (or the health department) had visited, we would have been losing our jobs.
So the next day I went to the general manager about it. I didn’t feel comfortable going to the managers to tell them of their wrongdoing (who am I to tell someone of higher authority they were wrong?). Anyways…she said because I’m a manager in training (and a crew trainer already) that I should have said something about it when it happened.
So today, you could tell that the managers in question were pissed with me. But I feel that if I had not said anything, it would just continue.
Someone please reassure me I did the right thing.
French Fry Tales:
Personally I think you did the right thing, and the general manager should have done their job and talked to the others about it.
Everyone else, what do you think?
