Now, when this new guy came in, it was made very clear to us that he didn't know much about the business and even the chef was relatively new only being there for a little over a month but has been cooking for almost 40 years. But when he started, we all gave the new director the benefit of the doubt and went above and beyond to make sure he knew how things work. We are all seriously regretting everything we've done for this guy.
Since coming, hes more like a jail house warden then a director. In fact, I have no idea what exactly he does since I mostly see him either wandering around the serving area or sitting in his office doing god knows what on the computer. Whenever hes in the kitchen, he is almost constantly ghosting people and is almost always in the way. It also seems that there may be an auditor coming soon because hes been clamping down on a lot of things but even so, he still doesn't know anything about running a kitchen yet hes constantly got his hands on everything we do in the kitchen and I'm not talking about hands on. Its basically workplace bullying hes conducting and has washed his hands clean of many responsibilities as director. I know for a fact that hes pushed off many tasks to the manager, the chef, even me.
I'm counting inventory from start to finish and I'm officially just a cook. In other sites, the director, manager, and/or the chef is tasked with this yet its my job somehow on top of managing catering, covering all the breaks, doing half the orders, putting away all the orders, some of the cooking (can't leave it all for the chef to do, its way too much), and all the little nick nack stuff that nobody wants to do, the list for that is very very long.
Aside from leaving with everyone in the kitchen supports, I don't really know what else to do. I mean, he was giving the chef and I crap for having boxes on the floor today. Um excuse me but first off, those boxes belong to another section, they're not ours, I don't put them away yet I still do, and if someone decides to leave them there after scuffling through a pile of boxes to get stuff they need upstairs, is that my fault? I don't have time to park my butt in all 5 storage areas to make sure nobody leaves boxes lying on the floor. Its seriously the most stupidest thing to b1tch about. And his conduct as an employee is seriously questionable too, swears and loses his temper over stupid things like this, and expects f***ing respect because he wears the title of director. Hes a power hungry mongrel and I'm inches away from having my fist planted 4 inches into his head yet he tests everyone like this. Several surveys came back and I quote "decent food but stressed out looking employees" all from our clients.
I don't wanna look like a deserter and leave people there to that degenerate but I don't think I can stay much longer, even my health is taking some serious turns. Aside from the obvious, what else can I really do?
