Many many years ago when I worked at fast food, the drops were made daily, if not more.

oh_please: How in the hell is a KFC franchise getting away without making a deposit for a week?


The franchise made the deposit, but the employee didn't. It took him six days to get caught.
 
2013-03-28 12:52:34 PM  

SweetDickens: Perhaps if said employee was paid a living wage he could afford to "buy" a car with locks.

Since no is the answer...fark the employer.   If it is their money they need to pick it up.  This is not a Step and Fetch It rerun.

A "living wage" isn't going to fix stupidity.  The guy left the money in an unlocked car while he spent 6 hours drinking at two different bars.  Then he left the money in the car over night, apparenly not noticing untill 9 the next morning.  How much is an employee like that worth.?

wxboy: In his defense, if I made such a monumentally stupid mistake like that, I'd probably have to spend some time at a bar too.


Yes, but this guy did it preemptively

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Reminds me of a neighbor I had at one time.  Not even sure what he did for a living, but he came knocking on my door one night  around 10pm to tell me that his car was broken into and the receipts form the business where he worked had been stolen.  He warned me to keep an eye on my vehicle...cuz...robbers.  Now, I only knew the guy's first name, didn't know where he worked, he had never been to my house; in fact, my ONLY interaction with him was waving as I drove in or out of the neighborhood...and he's warning me to watch my car (cuz...robbers), in a nice, low crime neighborhood.

After he left, my wife asked me what was going on, and I told her "I don't know, looks like Ben stole money from his boss and he's trying to cover his ass...or something."

CSB


I dunno, stranger things have happened. I live in a nice, quiet low-crime neighborhood and a few months ago while driving to work I noticed one of my neighbor's cars sitting on the brake discs in his driveway because someone had stolen all four wheels off his Mini the night before.

oh_please: grinding_journalist: oh_please: styckx: 6 days worth of deposits? Holy shiat..   Two jobs I had deposits had to be done every-single-day and if you missed a day you were fired no questions asked..

THIS. How in the hell is a KFC franchise getting away without making a deposit for a week?

When I worked at Gamestop, we only did deposits twice a week, and being a retailer that sold high-value electronics and other devices, we usually had quite a bit of cash on hand- deposits would be tallied and counted at close of business, and put in a safe, to be deposited on a day when there was enough staff to cover the store in the morning, so the other (usually me) could do a bank run.

Huh. I would think a fast-food chain would be depositing every day, maybe not. Anyone who works/worked fast food want to weigh in? Not that it really matters, I'm just interested.


I work Part Time at a BK for a little extra cash.  We make a minimum of 2 deposits a day.  Up to 3 if needed.  Night deposit is left in the safe for the morning manager to deposit.
 
2013-03-28 01:03:36 PM  
When I worked fast food 20 years ago, we'd have a police escort. That KFC deserves to go out of business. Of course, it won't which just goes to show how much we overpay for fast food.
 
2013-03-28 01:11:47 PM  
Yeah, we've all been there.  Taking the deposit to the bank and wondering "Could I get away with stealing this money?  Of course they'd fire my ass, but there's over $2,000 in cash.  A false police report saying that some illegal alien pulled a gun on me.  No security cameras, vague description of someone that looks like all other illegal aliens, a police report that would never be looked at again, barbeque grill to destroy the credit card receipts and bag.  The cash plus my last paycheck is...not enough to make it work."

$10,000 would be worth it.

/don't worry, I don't handle cash any more

since we're all weighing in...
at our stores, we have time delay safes.  only the store managers and myself can access them.  employees drop cash in, every weekday morning the manager gets it out, reconciles it against the prior business day, and deposits it.
on the weekends, the cash stays in the time delay safe until monday morning, when three days (fri, sat, sun) are reconciled and deposited.
one of our stores is far from a bank, so part of my job is getting the deposits from that location.
monday mornings are why i got my concealed weapon permit.

Six hours at a bar? If he is being honest then his defense should quickly go one of two ways after they talk to the bartender about his tab.

Something like he is a regular that consumed his usual amount
or
that guy way buying rounds for the whole bar all night!

Maxor: The town I grew up in to this day has a weird thing where all the bussinesses save resturants close at 2pm on Thursdays. I could see not making a deposit if you didn't want to use the drop slit. Miss Friday for some reason, Sat and Sunday ok unless you are making the drop before noon on sat I get not making it especially if say the manager isn't there and you've got an assistant that follows rules to the letter. That would give you 5 days on a Monday. Then again with cash tallies being deceased due to increased use of cards do you still have a big reason for daily or near daily deposits?


That's a holdover from the old days. Used to be that in order to keep a 40 hour work week and still be open on Saturday you just worked four 8's and two 4's. Traditionally, for some damn reason, Thursday and Saturday were your half days.

Deposit from fast food place, 1 day : $2,000 - 8,000.
Daily deposit service from Brinks: $10,000/month

I leave it to you to figure out the percent of income that works out to.
Profits are about 3-6% of income.  You be the judge.

Six days ofarkicken deposits?
That's some deep doo-doo.

Yes. When i worked ff 30 years ago.

I thought he shiat in someone's car for six days... or something


I was going to ask were the deposits solid or runny?  Did they have corn in them?

Obviously less than six days worth of KFC deposits.

I've wondered the same thing you have, but it doesn't take much thought to realize that any number high enough is also high enough to get you arrested and thrown in jail for a long time.

I don't work retail any more, but when I did there was a guy at my store who apparently thought the "totally worth it" point was two hundred bucks.  Whats especially stupid is that after a manager counts the cash, a second employee has to count it and they both initial the deposit slip.  This guy was the second counter, said that his count was $200 less, and while the manager was recounting, the guy left without anyone seeing and then just never showed up to work again.

Also, at that store, once a week a brinks guy would come to pick up deposits, which were put into deposit bags every evening and then kept in the safe.

Most people just pretend to ring up an item, sell you something, then pocket the sale in their pocket.

Usually the telltale sign of this is you order a common item, and the cashier knows what the charge is, with tax.  They punch up $12.45 in numbers, and that is what the customer sees.  This way, if the customer is a regular, they expect to see $12.45
 
2013-03-28 02:52:00 PM  
If I was this guy, I would just say that the manager paid you an extra $100 to do this and then the manager can pick up the money and file an insurance claim for the $25k
 
2013-03-28 02:57:16 PM  
Generally, you have to do deposits every night.  the reason for this is to prevent the closing manager on Thursday from taking 200 out of the deposits from Wednesday.

CSB:
I worked for a company that installed DVR CCTV systems. We did a lot of fast food places. We had recently put one in a McD's and they had a good size chunk of money come up missing. They called me back over to help them review the tape (since no one ever listens when I show them how to use the damn thing and the 'play' and 'rewind' buttons are really hard to figure out).

So I pull up the time the night manager cashed out the registers. She has a nice big pile of money on the desk, reaches past the deposit bag, grabs a manila envelope and starts shoving cash in it. Then we see her look to the right and see the CCTV monitor. Uh oh, right there on the monitor it shows she's being recorded in the office. Well that's no good for her plan. So she comes up with a devious scheme. She unplugs the monitor. Then goes back to shoving cash in the envelope before sticking it into her purse.

Now, no part of this plan was a good idea. She was already recorded shoving money into an evelope to steal. She intended to stop the recording, but even if she did there'd the video that was already there, plus video of her turning it off. (Had a nice good video of an employee knocking a different DVR off a shelf and badly damaging it, once I pulled its hard drive. They tried to claim it as warrenty. Didn't happen, but that's a different CSB). And even if she got around the recording...she took all the money. Like the morning shift is gonna look at the deposits and think "47 cents? must have been a slow night"

These people arn't that bright, but I suppose that's why a 37 year old woman works as a shift manager at mcdonalds.

Eff that 'living wage' crap.  If you work in a KFC as your only source of income, you dont need to be a homeowner.  You belong in a one bedroom apt in shiattsville, or a shared 2 br apt in Notthatbadville.

Dont like it, get two jobs.  After a while of working two jobs, you might determine that you need a skill or two.

I knew the reason behind it initially, just have no idea why the whole town's businesses still do it instead of hiring like most places do currently.

When I was 18 (csb time) I worked at a Duty Free store on the border. Namely, worked the  closing shift. At 18. By myself. I had keys to the store, alarm, and the single code we used for the safe, as well as supervisory logon codes and full authority to run the store.

... At minimum wage.

Did I mention even though we were a small store, I was responsible for about $30,000 of Canadian and US money, as well as a nightly deposit around $1000-2000?

When I was in the Air Force I went through an 11 week general system admin training course (mostly windows and a few basic unix commands)  before I was sent to my duty station. At my duty station I immediately became a tier 2 sys admin at an intel sq so I had full permission on both the windows and unix systems. We didn't get much training on Unix based systems (but I had some of my own experience prior to joining) You are put in a sink or swim position of trouble shooting different mission systems and hope you don't destroy everything. Oh and this trial and error is on $25M of computer equipment. Not to mention I could have pulled a Bradley Manning at any time.

Hell the AF trusted me enough for this with no experience but I can't even get a farking job in a small town at a local PC company or work a small tech support position because of my sleep issue that forced me out of service. "Well I see that you haven't worked in 4 years, would you be comfortable getting back into it?" Yes I would be, I've maintained a goo. No one would hire me after I got out because of said sleep disorder. I consulted with the VA and tried various medicines to help control the problem. I've found what works for me and I'm confident that I can get back into the workforce without an issue. In the meantime I've been pursuing a comp sci degree and maintain a high GPA to show that I'm a dedicated and hardworking individual.... no dice, I never hear back from a company after that.
