We're all supposed to pool our tips but I'm pretty sure the waiters are keeping most of the money for themselves. I already told the manager and she kinda blew me off. Anyone else been through this?

I agree, the best thing is for everyone to keep what they get. That way you are completely sure of what you should receive.

It's sad but some places are just terrible to work at. If this is a local place and you already talked to your manager you might be out of luck

This is just the way it goes sometimes, if your manager won't do something basic to ensure people are being treated fairly I can pretty much guarantee this is only one of the many unfair things you'll have to deal with

Sure sounds like the type of place you'd want to get out of ASAP, there are plenty of jobs out there where your manager and coworkers will respect you

Keep your tips as well then. If they don't want to follow the rules and your manager isn't going to do something, then keep all your tips to yourself

Usually managers only do something about those things when they see the pool empty or the big boss complains about it. Like they usually don't get any of that money they just don't care whether or not they are distributing it equitably

It happens. They feel they are the ones directly working with the customer therefor the tips are entirely their own. If the manager doesn't care, there probably isn't much you can do except job hunt elsewhere.

Any tips?

I’ll be making 6 figures in the next 2 years if I stay with my company regardless of degree status. Is it worth the time & stress? GPA was a 4.0, now it’s a 3.0

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?

Moving on from Hotels (Hospitality)?

I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now, but it is very to commit to actually accept a new job offer since I really do love my job. My only complaint is, the pay vs workload is very small. I’m a manager now and my property offered me a director position… but the salary is still low! To make six figures, it’ll take another 5-6 years to grind it out.

Should I move on and go to a different industry? Opinions are welcome! Thanks in advance.
