Hot Dog days of summer

Today at work was the "hot dog" days of summer celebration. We had a hot dog eating contest between some employees and some customers, a customer won.

Every section had to make food with hot dogs to sample to the customers. my section did beer battered corn dogs, the meat section did these Chili dogs with meat sauce, bakery made a pastry with the hot dog buns with a banana on top. outside we had the demo women making ice cream sundaes for people for a 5 dollar donation.

Unfortunately for me i got a migraine at like 7 pm and had to go home early. The break room must have had 60 hot dogs sitting there for people to eat, but i was too sick to eat any. what a waste.

Whole foods has a gainsharing system.

What this means is, every departement has a budget and sales goals, if you come in underbudget or exceed your goals , the extra amount is divided amongst the team.

So , the people in Whole Body, which sells the vitamins and supplements, get about 300 to 400 extra dollars in their checks once a month due to the extra. (because everything in the department costs so much.

The meat section gets over 400 extra on a regular month, sometimes more. My section, gets the least, because we throw so much food out. we get like 30 bucks extra.

How employees stick around.

At whole foods, after you get hired, you get a 1 month "feeling out" process. after about a month the team you are working for i.e. produce, prepared foods, grocery etc. votes on you.

so each employee in your department gets a vote to determine whether or not you get to stick around.

Get your ass kissin' boots ready. how do you guys think you would do?

Can whole foods get me in trouble for blogging about work?

I was talkin about this blog at work today with some friends, and a lot of them told me whole foods discourages people from blogging about working there, and they made me paranoid saying i should make sure not to put my picture up and stuff like that.

maybe i should start blogging about something else, i have no idea what else i would blog about though.

The random pizzas i make at whole foods.

Whole foods will give me some random ingredients usually because they have stuff they arent using. So this leads to some weird pizzas. I'm basically allowed to cook whatever i want.

Some times i make "Cheeseburger pizza" its got ketchup, mustard,cheeseburger pattys broken up, and no red sauce, and mozzarella cheese. its really good and smells like a happy meal when its cooking.

Some times i make potato skin pizza, its got mashed potatoes, sour cream, chedder cheese, cut up bacon, and mozz cheese and no red sauce. This one is so heavy you gotta eat it with a fork.

These are just 2 examples, Do you guys have any ideas for good pizzas or pizzas you've made, i will cook the ones you suggest next time i work and post results.

whole foods benefits versus crappy ass customers.

i make 10 dollars an hour, 15 on sundays and holidays. i get 40 hours a week or more. i get health insurance with 0 copays. i get a 401k plan. so its a pretty good job.

i make pizzas at the pizza station. kids always watch me throw the dough and smile and get happy and stuff. i dont mind the kids.

its the adults that act like kids. you basically have to chew their food for them. its a market for people who want to be catered to and treated like little kids. some lady had me cut her pizza slice into little pieces for her today, i was like, lady , you might as well have me chew it up and spit it down your throat for you like a baby bird. you're a grown ass women, eat a slice of pizza like a grown up.

The Jabronis i work with

Well, when i first got the job, i thought the customers would be the worst part, but instead the employees are the shittiest part, its all indy sluts and dumb ass hipster boys. It's a big clique and its all jabronis basically jerking each other off all day.

But they arent all bad, i've actually met  a few decent people. but for real, most of the people seem of the same mold, and i dont really fit in with most of them. but thats my fault maybe.
