What do I do?

A little background, I applied for two places around the same time (we’ll call them A & B). I missed a call & voicemail for A somehow and the manager graciously let me get another interview but this was after the B had already interviewed and given me the job as a waitress. I went into B on a Wednesday for training but got sent home early because there was 0 tables so I did maybe like 3 hours & Thursday again but only for 2 hours. My interview with A was on Friday and I didn’t have to go into B so it worked out perfectly. A ended up calling me 2 hours after my interview saying they wanted to offer me a job at a higher rate than B, I’m assuming because B never discussed pay with me. I accepted because the management is better and so is the pay. I let the owners of B know Saturday that it would be my last day ( I know a 2 week notice is better but A wanted me to start ASAP!!) & stayed for my shift even though I was notified that I needed to come in like 1-2 hours prior to having to go in. Owners of B said that it was fine they would head to restaurant in a little to talk and they showed up ate and left and never came back. I texted one of the owners today asking if I could come in have that talk and hopefully get paid ( I didn’t include that in the text!!) and I never got a response. Should I go back in ? Text/Call again ? Help!!! I know I can go to small claims court but I’m trying to avoid ended things on bad terms.

Def call again! You deserve that money if you worked for it.

You should go down there and tell them they owe some money for the hours you worked. If that dose not work then go to small claims

I think their silence and then question says it all. They are planning to screw you out of paying you.

Just go up there. They have to issue a check by law. It’s a “right to work state”. They can fire you if they don’t like you, and you have the equal right to quit the moment you realize you can get something better, or don’t like the job. Two week notices are typically in the corporate work, with very high paying jobs that would require a recommend type resume. Stop texting and calling. Just go up there and get your money.

Contact your State Labor Board! They should help you! Even just mentioning that your going to report the company to the Labor Board Usually they will get off their ass and pay you!

Tell them if you dont receive your pay your will be reporting them to the labor department. Make sure to text them so you have documentation. Good luck.

Don't blame yourself. They should have waited to discuss the situation with you. If they had gone through all of that trouble to make a point of showing up to talk to you, then took off without ever having greeted you, the rest is on them. You're in the right place. Congrats!

Did you get paid?

I would forget about the talk (talk about what?) and just get paid if you haven’t done so already.

Send a certified letter and keep copies.
