I currently am working as a Door Corps at the Waffle House location on Ingleside Road in Norfolk Virginia, and am a part time employee, but they cannot seem to get my paycheck correct weekly....
It all started back in August, when I took 2 days off for my birthday, but made them up the following week. I was of course not paid for the days I took off, but I was also not credited with the days I did work to make them up correctly, because the manager on duty did not put in my time correctly. This was corrected, somewhat. after I spoke to a different manager who had the money I was shorted returned to me the following week, but the pay for that week was also low. Again, I had to get the money I was not paid correctly added to my following week's paycheck, but then that paycheck was also light. This has happened every week since then, and again today, which is supposed to be pay day, I have been shorted. This is getting ridiculous now, and I am beginning to think the people they have working in the payroll department are completely incompetent, and that the managers are just lying to you about correcting issues to get you to leave them alone. IF you do take a job here, be prepared to keep close eye on your hours worked because their scheduling system is confused to say the least, and the on site managers do not really care about you at all.
Hard work, hard hours, some good people. Your experience depends on your upline. Make no excuses and you will be fine. Hard on family life, you learn a lot though. They will lie to get you on board, so believe half of what they say, and if you're good with half then you'll be just fine. Never forget it's 24/7 with only one day off during major holidays, and when someone calls off you fill that whole, and sometimes you work doubles to save payroll. Once you successfully work here every other job will be a breeze. Life changing experience for sure. Good luck!
Bad pay, mean coworkers, management, and customers. I worked third shift for a year at Waffle House and was CONSTANTLY harassed by coworkers and drunk customers. Everyone on the job smokes weed or drinks out back during the smoke break. They rarely followed rules. Everyone complains about their personal life. The cooks recently got a raise to $10 per hour, when they do NOT deserve it, I can't tell you how many times I've done there side work, they never have to deal with yelling customers either.
