I started this job at McDonald's a couple months ago because I needed extra cash for this college semester. Well the beginning of it was great, I worked with friendly helpful people and learned the ropes really quickly despite getting only 3 hours of training. All of a sudden the store got a new General Manager. She is actually very rude and mean to me and some other co-workers and to be honest she is a little intimidating. I'll call her GM
Anyways every since then I have not been getting hours at work....I went 3 weeks with only 5 hours a week. I asked the GM if I could get more hours because I am not making enough for my car payment and she happily wrote me in more days on the schedule. But every shift that I have had this month I have been sent home early. I started looking for a new job, found one, and put my two weeks notice in this Monday. When I handed in the letter of resignation I was told I could still work the rest of the days I was scheduled for; Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So Thursday I go in but 2 hours into my shift I was told to go home. This was after an employee who wasn't on the schedule came in. So basically they gave him the rest of my shift even though he was not on the schedule.
That was annoying but I came in Friday. The weather was bad and icy and snowy. When I came into work right as I got into the door I was told to go home because they didn't need me. They couldn't even bother to spend 30 seconds to call me and tell me not to come in. That was basically the last straw.
So today, Saturday, I threw up in the morning and wasn't feeling well. So 2 hours before my shift I called to tell them I was sick and couldn't come in today. 2 hour call is the policy. So I called, no answer. I tried calling 15 minutes later because I figured they were busy. No answer. I called 5 times between 1pm and 2pm because we don't have the option of leaving a message. I got the feeling they were ignoring me so I punched in *67 to block my caller ID for them and sure enough they answer on the second ring. The manager who answered sounded surprised and confused when I told them my name. This means that she was PURPOSELY ignoring my calls. Isn't that very unprofessional and rude? And my shift manager is put on the phone finally and I tell her I tried calling five times with no answer. I told her I wasn't felling well and she told me:
"You aren't allowed to call in on Fridays and Saturdays".
I told her I was throwing up and I didn't want to come in and be sick at work and she had a very bad attitude when she said "Okay then if you don't show up you don't have a job. Thanks, bye."
I was NEVER told I couldn't call in on Fridays and Saturdays. The only thing about attendance that I signed in my employee contract was to call 2 hours before my shift if I wanted to call in.
I have a shift tomorrow morning at 8am but I was basically told that I was "fired" or whatever, right? I know I am an at-will employee and they can fire me whenever without reason.
I am not going to show up at my 8am shift and just come in Thursday to get my paycheck...that may be kind of rude on my part but I was basically told not to come in anymore. The GM, the mean one, is probably going to call me tomorrow morning to yell at me or something, I just know it. This may be childish but I hate dealing with her in person.... I put my two weeks in already so losing this job isn't big deal but still I feel very disrespected and I feel like the managers have been unprofessional in the way they were treating me. What do I say to the GM if she calls? I have never shown up late to work and I always have a great attitude even when the managers are rude to me so I don't understand why they would treat me this way? I don't know if I am the one in the wrong in this or what.
