I just started as a manager of this frozen yogurt place called Red Mango in early January, its mostly owned by Korean people and they seemed nice during the first month. I began to see how cheap they are and disgusting business practices that go on there in as little as 3 or 4 weeks. I was told to hire someone, but they wanted to meet the person before a decision was made. I had a bunch of people come in that sent me letters and resumes while responding to a Craigslist ad we posted. I spoke to many people over the phone and had a good 15 or so people come in. So the first guy comes in, he's a bit chunky. I wouldn't call him fat, but he was bulky. If you put him in a suit he might look like a bouncer. He wasn't muscular, but whatever. The owner asked who he was and I said an applicant, before I got up to go interview him the manager said to get rid of him, he "doesn't want fat employees". So I talked to him and told him we would get back to him. Then a nice Puerto Rican girl came in, he didn't want to hire her because "latinos are lazy". Most of the employees we have now are either Korean or Chinese...I'm the only white person there. We have no black or hispanic employees, our total number of people is 12 right now. So the owner calls my cell one day while I was working up on the main floor and asked me to come downstairs into the office. Him and the Chairman of the Red Mango franchises of New York were in the office talking and sat me down and said "don't give free samples to blacks, they don't have money to buy anything". I found that statement to be disgusting, but I need a paycheck and arguing with them was only going to get me fired and not convince them to abandon their bigotry. I had dinner with the owner and Chairman and a couple other people one night, and they were casually asking me about my life and asked if I had a girlfriend. I'm a bisexual, and am currently seeing a Korean guy, but knowing their attitude I just said yes I have a girlfriend, the owner did meet my ex-girlfriend who I dated for 3 years. So two days ago, I was in the office talking with the owner, and he was telling me how pleased he was with how things are going. We both commented how the store is finally running smoothly, all the little problems we had since opening this January seem to be solved and things are good. Then today the owner as I'm leaving tells me "I sent you an email, call me after you read it". The email said the following... Dear *******, As a manager position for a brand new company, we expect leadership by way of example, dedication and hard work. So far, you have not demonstrated those qualities and would like to remind you that you are still under the 90 days probationary period. I hope you can step up and show evryone that you deserve to be a manager for Red mango store. Sincerely, ******* ** Now this is nonsense, when we were being trained during January I spent 65 hours in one week in the store helping to get it ready. We only got paid $60 for all the hours of training we spent there. I continue to devote myself to that store despite what I deem disgusting personalities of the people who run the business. Yesterday, my boyfriend came into the store, and we are usually very discreet since a lot of people are very uncomfortable seeing two guys. My boyfriend gave me a quick kiss on the cheek in the back part of the store not knowing there are cameras to observe the store. I'm convinced the owner saw this and now wants to get rid of me because of my sexual orientation, though I'm not 100% certain. I'm just really annoyed, I'm already in the process of looking for another job, but this one is so close by and it pays alright and I really enjoy the employees I work with. They also pay everyone off the books EXCEPT me, who gets a check and a big chunk taken out from taxes. Sorry for the long post, its alright if you don't read it...I just had to rant.
