Here's the situation. I do the inventory. And there are wild swings in credits and usage. Yet, I'm counting what we have. I count it down to the 2nd decimal point.
With that said, since I'm on a campus, we have nearly NO business during the summer. So a fluctuation of 2 dollars will send everything out of control.
My GM is saying that during the regular school year, the variance we are seeing would amount to barely 1% of food cost. But, my GM is saying I don't know how to count right and that I am not taking it seriously. I just spent 8 hours breaking down the variances section by section. I'm not finding certain products anywhere in the inventory and comparing it to the previous week it's like they don't exist even though we haven't used them. Theft isn't an option as there are no employees other than me, my GM, 2 supervisors, and a admin assistant.
WTF is going on?
I took this job 5 months ago and she's telling me that this sort of variance didn't happen before I was here. The lady who did inventory before me I took over and she wasn't counting them the way the company wants us to. So finally, my GM told us to do it together. Now we get wild swings all over the place. Any thoughts????
