    Ok I have a problem with one of my new clients. I work at Pizza Hut part time to help with some of my bills. I spoke with the manager and she said I could have the account for mowing services. After about a week the district manager stepped in and said they decided to go with another company. My manager already signed a contract with my LCO. I dont want to piss off my manager and get fired but I also think its bull and that Pizza Hut is in Breach of contract if they just drop me for another company. What should I do? I need help thanks.

    Suck it up. Forget about it.

    It's happened 100 times, it'll happen again.

    Usually what happens is some company goes straight to the top and says they'll do 40 stores in an area, the state, whatever.

    I suppose you COULD press the situation some, but the DM will just say that the store manager didn't have authorization to sign.

    I don't see the manager going to war with the DM over the mowing contract, unfortunately. Maybe you can work something out, like, let them out of the contract, but on the condition you can keep a wad of flyers/biz cards by the register. Probably 'against policy' but if your manager is cool maybe it'll fly...

    Did you do any work? Was there a signed contract?

    The only thing I WILL say, is that at least make sure you get paid for the work you've already done.

    Hey talk to your manager. Tell him/her that a raise in your part time salary there will help in the loss of their contract. See what they say.

    Ive worked for pizza hut for 17 yrs on and off (mostly on). Is it a Corparate store or a franchise? I do 4 corparate stores here in Michigan (Mowing) and their managers are not allowed to sign contracts.So even if the manager signed it it probably isn't valid. I highly doubt they would fire you ,there always in need for good employees.
