My boss has been considering me for the assistant manager position at the restaurant.
I’ve been doing everything possible to show him that I am ready to take over the position. I will go from an hourly wage to a salary and I will qualify for benefits like medical, dental, and a retirement plan. It’s a really big deal and I have been working hard to earn the promotion. I haven’t missed a day of work in 18 months. Even when I had the flu, I came to work. My boss left me in charge for the first time ever, last Friday night. If it was one of the busiest days that we have ever had. We didn’t have any salmon or tuna, because the vendor did not show up that day. Customers were complaining right and left. That was only the tip of the iceberg. When the AC stopped working, customers were completely irate. Everyone was getting upset. The temperature in the dining room was hot and uncomfortable. People requested a refund of their money and several people walked out angry. There wasn’t anything that I could do to solve the problem on my own. I had to make a judgment call when I decided to contact the repair service. I didn’t know if the company was going to pay for the AC repairs, but I certainly couldn’t sit there and do nothing at all while we lost customer after customer because of terrible indoor air conditions. When my boss finally returned, he commended me for thinking fast and finally gave me the promotion.
