Frequently Asked Questions
We get asked a lot of the same questions over and over. Below you will find the answers you need to the most asked questions we get. Any other inquiries should be directed to the office staff, NOT Chris.
I'm a smoker, is it OK to smoke on the job?
Also, DO NOT THROW YOUR BUTTS ON THE GROUND OUTSIDE THE OFFICE!!
Pot is legal now, can I just smoke before work or during work?
You know what else is legal? Drinking. Do you crack open a cold one while driving down the road, or before coming to work? NO. Pot is the same thing.
DO NOT COME TO WORK UNDER THE INFLUENCE!!
Also, if you have any type of accident, you will be immediately picked up and taken to a drug and alcohol test. If you are found to be under the influence of either, you will be responsible for covering the expenses of your injuries (we will not be responsible to cover you under workers compensation).
I'm so thirsty, can I just grab a water?
No, you can't. Those water bottles are purchased by ANDREA with her own money. You are more than welcome to bring in your own water/drinks, labeled, and store them in the kitchen or fridge for when you need one.
In the hot summer months, we provide coolers, ice, and water whenever we can.
DO NOT EAT THE ICE MACHINE ICE!!
I missed a punch, can you just adjust that for me?
Please complete a "missed punch form" and submit it to the office before noon on the Tuesday after the missed punch. If you don't return a complete form, or don't turn in any form for the missed punch in time, then the day's pay will not be paid until the payroll following the receipt of the form to the office.
Can I rummage through the kitchen for snacks?
I lost my time card key fob, can I have a new one?
If you leave employment with us and don't return a fob, we will hold $5 from your uniform deposit to cover the loss.
Can I borrow $20 until Friday?
We no longer offer pay advances or loans unless it's an extreme circumstance due to policy abuse.
I don't have rent money, can I borrow a few hunned?
Can I have more uniforms?
If you need new pants because yours are worn out or no longer fit, bring in the old pair(s) for a replacement. If you need new t-shirts, you will be given additional ones, but if you don't return them all upon termination, you will not receive your deposit back.
We order other articles of clothing a few times per year (sweatshirts, hats, coats, etc) if you are eligible for one of these items, we will get one for you.
Can I borrow a truck to help [person] move, or buy [large item]? Etc...
We don't allow this because in the past it's been abused, and we just want to avoid that. To be fair to all employees, no one can borrow trucks unless their auto insurance policy is on file with the office.
