Have you been wondering what's been going on with totally rational and always calm people over at Amy's Baking Company?
You know, the restaurant that was featured on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares? Well, as it turns out, they're still in business — and somehow still have employees, even though they have to sign one of the most allegedly INSANE employee contracts we've ever seen!!
The 20 rule contract gets the normal stuff out of the way: no cell phones, dress right, etc.
Then it moves on to these things:
5).Any type of attitude will result in immediate termination.
6). You must leave the premise immediately after your scheduled shift, and no family or friends may come to see you while working.
9).At no point is any food or any type of open beverage allowed in the kitchen. This is a direct Health Code Violate.
14). Respect and distance must be given to all fellow employees. No harassment or bullying of any type will be tolerated and will be cause for immediate termination.
16) Holidays and Weekends are Mandatory, by signing this contract you are accepting that you will be required to work all Holidays, and Weekends. Due to the nature of our Industry this is a necessity and any No-Show will be monetarily penalized with a fee of $250.00.
17) The recipes and techniques that have been developed by Amy at ABC are exclusive and shall remain confidential. Any removal of recipes will be considered theft.
19) The wait staff understands that any and all ‘tips' are property of the ‘house'. By signing this contract you agree that you willing accept a payment $________ per hour instead of tips.
20) It takes a great deal of time, energy and patience on the part of Samy & Amy (the owners) to train and teach our employees. We are investing in you as a new employee…By singing this contract you are herby accepting that you will be employed exclusively by ABC Amy's Baking Co. LLC. And shall not work for any competitor within a 50 mile radius of ABC within one year of termination or voluntary Resignation, without prior authorization from ABC. Nor shall you be allowed to open your own business of the same type, within the above mentioned radius.
We know that there are people out there that need jobs, but who in their right minds would agree to all of this?? There's no way we'd allow HALF of this to be brought upon us, especially the bullshizz no competition/year/own business clause!
They're a wait staff! And DON'T get us started on that mandatory weekend madness! Our minds are blown that this place is still open and can find employees! LOLz!
