To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Christopher L. ****, and am an ex-employee of Subway. The location of this franchise is at 3115 S. Cooper Street, Arlington, TX 76015, and the telephone number is (817) 465-8888. I have worked for this location for approximately 1 month. This letter, is just to report the way things are in this location, and probably the same in the other 52 locations that this owner (Mr. Suarez) maintains. I have worked for another owner is the Subway Franchise, and operations were nothing like this.
My employment was terminated on Sunday, November 6, 2005, due to shortages in bread. Saturday night, the manager Anita G. needed a ride, so I offered to take her. She stayed at the store, until we closed. After my duties were done, the alarm was set, and we walked out of the store, and locked the doors. The next day when Anita came in, she told me that the alarm did not go off. Meaning that someone was in the store after hours.
She believes it to be Matt, the employee that I replaced. He also still has a key to the doors, and knows the code for the alarms system. When I called to see when I come in to work, I was told that I was fired. On Wednesday, November 9, 2005, when I went to pick up my check, it was not there.
I am also owed my final paycheck in two weeks. The manger had no explanation for this. I am not the only person who has not received a paycheck after being terminated. Other employees that were terminated, have not received the rate of pay that was promised, no paycheck at all, or major deductions taken out of it.
During this time frame, money has been taken out of my check for a uniform ($25.00 shirt) that I have not received, and shortages in the cash drawer. We only have one cash drawer, so there is no way to determine which employee miscalculated funds, to or from a customer. There was nothing in writing that was signed, or gone over with me about taking money out of employees check to cover shortages.
Some of the employees have more than the $25.00 taken out, and there is nothing that the managers, or owner does about it. The trays that hold food, are not cleaned every night, or day. Dishes are not cleaned and sanitized the correct way.
The date label is the only thing that is changed, and product begins to stick together, or change color due to not rotating product, and no employee have obtained Food Handler Permits.
I believe that the way things on the financial side of the business are crooked. It is really not the way to treat employees, weather recent or ex. I thank you for taking the time to look over this situation.
