No matter how hard i try, i can't seem to keep my life together for more than a few months. I got fired for the second time this year, after never having been fired before in my life. Neither time was due to negligence or wrongdoing on my part....the first was at Top Foods, where they panicked and decided they didn't trust a 22 year old to run their bakery department after all while they were trying to figure our their remodel to a Haggen store, and the second...well, Julie of Julie's Gluten Free Bakery is an evil, self centered woman who needs professional help. I stayed for 9 months, with a week long foray into management at top foods in the middle of that. I worked my ass off for Julie, developed relationships with my coworkers, and developed recipes and helped julie so much. She knew the whole time that she was almost 100 thousand dollars in debt, yet she still brought up an award winning cake decorator from california to work for her. Lindsey is now pregnant and is going to have a hard time finding a job. Because Julie is shutting down her bakery. but not before firing me two days before she announced she was closing her doors. all because she didn't like me and didnt want me to get unemployment. I'm not making this up, folks. her reason for firing me was that i tore a note she had written out of our communication book. thats all. 16 hour days and countless recipes developed, hard work sweat and tears and i was dropped just like that.
good riddance. but it is so hard to find bakery jobs in the winter...and i already couldn't pay my bills.
i have so much dedication to my work and so much to offer, and so do my coworkers, all great people. it's so, so so so infuriating that we all gave everything to Julie and she threw it all back in our faces on the daily, treated us terribly and ultimately shirked her responsibilities and gave up on us and on her bakery.
I am not generally a hateful person. but i will make an exception for that woman for the rest of my life.
