Re: bad way to treat employees

I sympathize with you cookgirl. I'm glad that most of you have found jobs already, hopefully comparable to your previous job. I do however understand why they did this the way they did. It sucks for the employees yes...but the restaurant business is extremely customer service oriented. If they gave even a weeks notice, employees would disappear. As you've stated your fellow employees were able to find positions with in a day's time. That would mean that they have no employees left to run the place. Even if they are able to keep employees around, who's to say they won't be offering up terrible service because of the awful position they've been put in. It sucks, but it is a sound business decision. Maybe the "moral" thing would have been to let the employees in on the closing prior to it happening. Unfortunately there are a lot of employees that wouldn't return the favor if given time to react.
