How do I deal with lazy high school kids at work?
I'm a 21-year-old college student and I'm a shift manager at a Subway restaurant. Three high school kids are also employed there. One of them goes to the restroom a lot and talks on her cell phone and she thinks nobody notices. I caught another in a lie the other day and the third one piddles around on the front line when we're extremely busy. I don't gripe at them very much because I afraid they'll get back at me or quit which means I'll have to work more. Also, my boss does not back me when I try to make things better. I would try to find another job but this one is easy and I get off on all the days that I need, which is alot! I can't fire anyone and I absolutely cannot work any extra time since, as a music major, I don't have any!

If your boss doesn't care then you shouldn't either. I know it's hard now but once you graduate from college you won't have to deal with that crap anymore. Just let it go and bring me a sandwich...toasted.

Your the manager, set some rules. No cell phone unless your on your break. When your busy, put them on stations.. the lazy one will have to work.
