Hey all, I need some advice concerning work that I thought maybe more experienced HTFer's could give me. Here's the story, last Fall I got a second job to help me save money for a car and go to college with. The job was great, it was located right in my neighborhood, flexible scheduling, and more pay (initially) than at my other job at Regal Cinemas. The 2 people who run it are both very nice and pleasant therefore making it an even better experience. I have been very happy working there for the past couple months and referred a friend over there to where he was able to get a job. However, things have suddenly changed for the worse. Within the past 2 weeks, one of my two bosses has turned into a pompous, bossy, person. Doing something as simple as asking a question (ie. "what are you looking for?") ellicits a sarcastic, completely uncalled for response that no managerial person should ever give their employee. I would pass this off as bad management but it seems to only be relegated to me and the friend whom I referred there that got a job. Dave, the manager, has now gone so far as to give my friend and I completely seperate tasks from the rest of the staff, we even have our own section of whiteboard dedicated specifically for this crap which is mainly grunt work. I'm even being asked to mow this guy's yard, a task which I feel is totally unrelated to the operation of the company of which they hired me to work for (I'm not a gardener and wasn't hired to do work of that kind for them)and is also unneeded in our winter weather especially when it is cold out like this. I'm just at a loss for how it could have gone down hill there so suddenly, if anything I've improved greatly since I started there. The thing that concerns me is that it is only seeming to be directed towards me and my friend and no one else. My friend and I decided that tommorow we are going to be talking to Dave and try to find out what's going on. How should we approach this? what should we say? do my fellow HTFer's have any other advice or opinions as to what we should/could do about this? thanks.
