    America Runs On Dunkin...

    ...too bad America doesn't know what they're drinking. I've got a lot of gripes with my job at Dunkin Donuts. In New England, there's a DD every three blocks, so keep in mind this is only in regards to my particular store. First, my manager is insanely unaware of her own...

    Underpaid and overworked.

    There are a few aspects about my job that I enjoy, so it's not complete hell. I dislike my little paychecks and I hate the ridiculous demands placed on me each day. Although, I love to help people and that is part of my job. Yet the corporation would rather me take advantage...

    The Paranoid Micromanaging Boss

    I go to work hoping that my boss isn't there. He is the most paranoid person I've ever met and he does in fact check the security cameras to make sure you're working. He wants you on Skype all the time so that he can bug you and ask "What are you doing?" throughout the day and...

    Fast Food Is Not A Place To Be A 'lifer'.

    I've wanted to quit for a long time. I really can't stand this job. Some of my coworkers I'll miss, some I won't. I was so excited to be able to go in Friday and put in my two weeks notice, but I couldn't because the job I tried to get today didn't offer enough hours. Maybe I'll...

    Never in my life have I despised something more

    than working at LPQ. A "high end" cafe that demands perfection in every way but deems itself for to only pay workers min wage. The roaches, the terrible managers, the temper tantrums all come with the job. All the while we have to smile and pretend like we love this. Yup this...
