Prep cook - Cartersville, GA - July 2021
I'm a person with disabilities who was not treated like a person with disabilities. I cried every time I worked and when it was time for me to get off my shift I be in tears because of the excruciating pain from my back and hips. I couldn't sit while during prep and I tried to endure it for as long as I could but i only stayed there for a month. Thats alI I could handle.

Cashier - Darlington, SC - July 2021
I disliked this job because of Bad management and very low pay. I wasn’t getting pay how I was supposed too. But I worked hard and didn’t get pay enough. They need more management that knows how to be a good manager. They expect you to work so hard give you like 1 or. Two days off with low pay.
