You mean: Miss work because you buggered off without telling your employer that you are buggering off, which they would totally understand and support, is a write up.

I can feel America getting greater with every hurricane we get slammed with.

If they get sued, that would be delicious. Just like Pizza the Hutt.

I realize in some areas jobs are hard to come by... but lets face it, there's another minimum wage job available in the current economy so I certainly would have felt free to tell that manager to fark off, and good luck running the store by him/herself.

I read in some other thread about this that it's sort of a dick move for customers to want pizza delivery during an emergency. And people would comment to the delivery drivers that they felt so bad that the drivers had to work during a storm.

'Care to tell us where you've been for the last few days?'

'Um, drowning in my living room. There was a thing on the news about it.'

'That's no excuse!'

I delivered pizza during Irene and Sandy. Holy shiat did I make a lot of friggin' money.

Sandy aftermath was fun because I would high-tail it to Connecticut and back every other night after work to get gas.

In the part that Goober made up in his head.

Study it out.

situation had been "addressed" with the manager involved

I am guessing there is an opening.

Is there such a thing as an Internet Lynch Mob?  Because this situation calls for an Internet Lynch Mob.

Please pick your spots against the wall.

I admit, I get the manager's position- the store can't run without workers, and this is a time period where they can really make bank.

HOWEVER, understanding does not indicate agreement. It's not like a Pizza Hut job is hard to replace. Besides, a good manager and franchisee would have incentivized returning to work, not gone with the ol' "no carrot, only stick" approach. The store would be buried in awesome publicity if they promised another few bucks an hour to all those who would be available right up to closing and immediately after reopening. There was a far better way to handle this.

No I mean, corporate shill says what?

Any company the required work during a hurricane should be prosecuted for reckless endangerment of human life.  The individual managers should be prosecuted.

Let's see how prevalent this shiat is then.

A minimum wage, unskilled job in this economy?

Fark them, you can get another job in 2.3 seconds.  Let them scrape for employees.

Pizza Hut doesn't pay even remotely close to enough to make it worth it to sit out a cat 4 hurricane.  You're only making bank if you're making tips. The kitchen staff has exactly zero incentive to ride it out.  Which is what you're going to end up doing if you wait until the 24 hour mark to evac.

"we also have a responsibility and commitment to our community to be there when they need us"

So I assume they're providing free pizza to first responders or something because there's no way they said that about regular ol' pizza-sellin.

There is an awesome local pizza joint here in the Orlando area that we picked up from on Thursday night. I asked the owner if they were going to board up and his response in broken English was "no, this is no big deal. I do not understand why many are so worked up! Storm last year [hurricane Mathew] was no big deal. We will stay open during!"
Sure enough as I was watching the storm out our front window Sunday night at around 11pm or so I saw one of their delivery drivers pull into the neighborhood while it was raining sideways outside, branches snapping of trees and small debris rolling through the street. How they didn't get stopped by the police I am not sure (there was a curfew in place).

/pizza is NY style but they def ain't from NY or Italy.
//not from Florida either if they don't comprehend what a hurricane can entail.

Keep in mind these are largely delivery drivers.  Not only do they want them to stay until the gas stations run out of gas, they want them to use up their own gas inside their cars as well.

As much as I find myself being a negative nancy, there really isn't anything in this letter that is scandalous or insulting. In some rare cases like cat 5's you should allow for 2-3 days to get out of dodge and otherwise be flexible in when you can actually open your business again since heavy damage can lead to not having any supplies or a usable store, but that is getting ahead of myself.

So yea they pretty much want you to get back within 3 days after the storm hits and do your job. Unless your living quarters is demolished and your way of living is altered significantly, getting back to work in 72 hours is a small thing to ask. I work at target, this is mostly how things went. There was ALOT of communication with the bosses and we were able to open up monday evening just because there were enough people looking to return to work (went home early on sat and closed sunday).

the letter says "community" but it is more like "to ensure business returns to normal and you have a payroll/job, you might want to get your ass back to work asap, ya know?" The pizzas don't make themselves.
