okay so i started my job at beef o bradys two weeks ago. i didnt get my paycheck yesterday while everyone else did. i asked why, they said the first 3 days are considered training days and i dont get paid. i worked ****ing 5 hours a night for 3 nights, and dont get a dime out of it? i dont ****ing think so. my friend who works there told me thats customary and every work does it. i told my mom she said no, every work doesnt do it. so is this legal? do other places do it?

A whole 15 hour week

Once you've been sent home by a company so you couldn't get much needed overtime pay, and then consequently had to choose from the available funds whether for the next week you'd rather have electricity, or food, I'll have a bit more sympathy.

Lol.

I love how you guys are all saying "Sop whining lolol" and such.

Firstly, I bet none of you even have a job. Secondly, you too would be pretty ****ing pissed if you worked three nights for sweet FA.

Wether it's legal or not, get your heads out your asses.

To the op: Yeah, probably legal. ****sux, but at least you'll have some cash from now on.

You pretty much just got pwned by Beef-o-Brady's.

Relax. Work another week and then you'll get paid.

lol @ 5 hours a day for 3 nights.

Are you ****ing kidding me? First of all, 5 hour shifts are a joke. Work 8 hours a day 5-6 days a week and then you have a right to complain.

True.

But this thread just seems to be full of pricks thinking along the lines of "I'm older than this guy and jaded from some ****. This gives me the right to be a complete asshole and say he has no right to be pissed."

15 hours is a big chunk of time if you're a bratty schoolkid, after all Give the guy a break.

Quote by Child In Time
During the past four years I've had 5 jobs, and been at one for the whole four years, which meant there were times when I had two, and even three, jobs at the same time. The pay wasn't always great or fair, and neither were the hours- many times I've worked 50+ hours a week with no overtime. But I don't whine on UG about it.

Right now I'm working in two schools in Ibiza and getting much less than the other teachers because I'm still at uni, but I get on with it. This is how the world works.

The above applies to you. You're normally pretty cool, too.

I got paid for training, over 20 hours.
However, its legal and you're basically stupid for not asking if you got paid or not. No, it isn't obvious; some places do not pay for training.
And 20 hours a week isn't that much. Thats my all time low for a weeks work.
#35
I got paid at my job when I was training. I trained for 4 hours a day 2 days a week and I got paid for it but it could just be the place I work.

an employer can't ask you to work without pay. its simply illegal regardless of what they tell you.

There is a student wage which is normally considerably lower than minimum wage. but they can't make you work for free. They are taking you for a ride, and anyone who tells you the same was also taken for a ride. Go find a new place of employment that will treat you with respect.
