Godfather's Pizza Blenheim Tri Group Management Workplace Nightmare! Blenheim Ontario
First off, if you're looking for a place of employment, do not work at Godfather's Pizza anywhere!
Someone I know worked as a manager of the Godfather's Pizza location in Blenheim, Ontario and was fired recently for no real excuse. The excuse she was given was because of low sales, not doing things right and she just wasn't cut out for it. These are not real excuses. Now for the back-story.
In January, the head office (Tri-Group Management) fired the assistant manager of the restaurant. At that time they gave the manager a "good" performance review. This was her first review as the store had just opened on November 28, 2013. Less than two months later she was fired because apparently she wasn't doing anything right and sales were low.
The people at the head office are complete morons first of all. Even a 17-year-old girl told me that she knows you can't compare sales week-to-week and get an accurate sales forecast--you have to wait until after a year to get a proper reading on sales. The head office was comparing the sales from when the store first opened to the sales now, which is naturally a slow time of year.
The fired manager was also getting told three different ways to do things, from the person who trained her, from the area manager and from head office. Every time she did it the new way, the other two sources were chirping at her for not doing her job right. They would complain about food costs but tell her to put more toppings on pizza. Complete insanity!
They also wanted her to be more aggressive (their words), which the fired manager thought meant writing people up for their mistakes (which is illegal according to Ontario Labour Laws). This was not aggressive enough (apparently) and they really wanted her to intimidate and belittle the employees (which is also illegal). These are just some of the trumped up reasons for her wrongful dismissal.
Not once was she written up herself or did she have disciplinary action taken against her. She signed nothing that said she was responsible for sales. Even when she did try to promote sales by having specials, she was told she was not allowed to do that. She was even told a week before her firing to do employee reviews and send them back. They were due two days before she was fired, and she did them all. Then the head office has the audacity to assume she knew that she was going to be fired. Complete craziness.
A number of people have said that this manager has a case to sue Godfather's Pizza aka Tri-Group Management for wrongful dismissal because of all these things, which go against both Canadian/Ontario Labour Laws and against their own company policies of disciplinary procedures. She's reserving the right to launch a lawsuit for a later date.
My suggesstion to anyone seeking employment with Godfather's Pizza in Ontario is to run the other way. It's not worth the aggravation and hassle, as these workplace practices are exercised province-wide. As it is, everyone who knows about this are encouraging people to not shop at Godfather's Pizza anywhere as their employment practices are deplorable and revolting. They boast about belittling people and ripping people apart. Despicable!
Never buy Godfather's Pizza or work there! Ever! You'll regret it!
