Re: Bizarre Simpson-eque Ethical Dilemma

Nice job.

This brings up a memory from college and a company I refuse to eat at to this day. While I was in college, I worked for a large pizza chain as shift manager and helped out for time to time at different stores. I thought the manager at one of the stores was stealing based upon weird swings in inventory and credit card transactions. Other employees saw him steal money from the vending machines so I told the regional manager of my suspicions. A week later, I was pulled into an office with the manager and regional manager and was told I should support that manager better. The manager treated me like crap after that but luckily I didn't regularly work at that store. A couple of months later, several customers complained to corporate about charges on their credit cards. The dude was stealing huge amounts of money (adding huge tips and misc charges). He ended up costing the company tens of thousands of dollars and a lot of pissed off customers. They could have solved the problem months earlier if they would have at least checked up on what I brought to them. I repeatedly saw the regional manager over my "time" at with this chain and he never said a word about it.

Sounds like that company had a pretty sick culture.

Pretty much. Luckily I only worked there for 3 years but only at that particular store for a year. I won't say the name of the company but it's a pizza joint with "Pizza" and "Hut" in it's name.

Hated, hated working there. I was stoked when I finally quit for my first office job.
