My first job was at Hollywood video and the training video I had to watch is on here. Its called don't be a knuckle head at Hollywood video. Its something special.
The only training videos they showed me at my job were “How to not sexually harass coworkers” and “How to not chop off your fingers with the food-chopping equipment” My job wasn’t to operate any of the equipment they talked about. It wasn’t the job of anybody else who was in the room watching, either.
“The one with the sweaty guy that makes us feel special!”
Is no one gonna mention how Wendy’s used the intro the Pink Floyd’s welcome to the machine for their training video
5:50 What they mean, if you feel an impending spring lock failure, you need to go to the safe room, because you get in trouble if you bleed in front of the kiddins. Dayshift at Freddy's, anyone?
Me and Drew staring at each other for 10 seconds at the end of the video... ... Me: Aw, we're falling in love
The frayshest beef I could find Old fhaishaned hambueger
hmm.... what is your full first name?
Are we not gonna mention that the wendy's video just has a clip of pink floyd's "on the run" when he pops the tape in?
Cinemark theaters. Can confirm they have some weird training videos you have to watch regularly that are still being created and are just as weird.
The only place that did training videos in my experience was McDonalds. All of the other ones are pretty utilitarian. McDonalds felt like propaganda lmao
The TV before he was sucked into the Wendy’s dimension was playing the sound effects from Pink Floyd’s song “Welcome to the Machine”. Feels a bit on the nose for Wendy’s to include that at the beginning of the training video lmao
This Andrew guy is kind of annoying
9:41 is that sound effect from Pink Floyd's Welcome to the Machine? cause I swear to god that's the same sound from the intro to Welcome to the Machine
me: staring at the currents album every time drew pops up
Nice one Andrew
I''m always being asked about the weather. Hate it.
bro what is up with his hair? is it just me?
This video is so validating as a person scarred by retail and foodservice
The thing I recall from my Target training videos was that the wheelchair guy in the videos was played by the same person who was the "rude customer". Also a lot of anti-union propoganda.
Wait, his name isn't Andrew? What is Drew short for then?
I watched this video high and that wendy's burger rap sounded amazing
When I worked at Costco there was a sort of training video being like: "Hey here's all the COOL departments you can work in! OH HEY DISABLED PEOPLE CAN WORK TOO HERES A GUY IN A WHEELCHAIR! HE THINKS HES PEOPLE!!!!"
I have the same shirt as you lol
9:40 mins in is the starting sound from Welcome to the machine by Pink Floyd
Wait, Chuck E. Cheese is bankrupt? Then how come I still see their locations around? Wouldn't they have had to remove all external paraphernalia when their lease expired because they couldn't pay it anymore because they were bankrupt? Or is it the kind of bankruptcy where you just say that you're bankrupt to get a tax break but you do still have money? I'm so confused.
Fast food employee horror story (and it’s a doozy): TL;DR: DO NOT EVER GO TO WENDYS IN MICHIGAN So luckily I’ve never worked in fast food but my boyfriend has. He worked at Wendy’s for several months, and within those several months the shit he experienced was ABSURD. now first, not only did they never show him a training video, they literally just never trained him, in fact NO ONE got trained. They threw you into the kitchen, said “make this” and then you had to ask the other employees who were also not trained how to do it, many of which would give conflicting answers. Now let’s talk about some of the bat shit insane people he worked with ok? (Names will be changed lest these people ever see this though I doubt they will. First of all we’re his 2 main managers let’s call them Andy and morby. Not only did these fuckers constantly complain during work and at several points just did literally nothing, but they refused to admit they were only giving my boyfriend HALF of his pay for several weeks (don’t work he got it figured out eventually but damn) and also were pretty sure andy got morby pregnant (they were supposedly not dating and Andy is married with kids) and then THEY BOTH QUIT DURING A SHIFT leaving the rest of the employees stranded with no manager. Next up we have G and Mini. Holy shit these ones are something. For starters They started dating when G was Lin his late 30’s and Mini was about 20 so there’s that but it gets worse don’t worry. Not only was their relationship incredibly toxic with G being abusive, Mini constantly cheating on him with co-workers, and the fact that one day they came into work after having gotten into a car accident that morning because they were fighting so much. They eventually broke up (but still called each other babe at work so yeah sure) BUT THEN BOUGHT AN ACTUAL LITERAL PET BABY ALLIGATOR TOGETHER AND BROUGHT IT INTO WORK LIKE HOLY SHIT WHAT THE ACCTUAL FUCK GUYS??? The last real bad one was Katie, who was pregnant and already had a kid but DID smoke several cigarettes a day WHILE ON SHift AND COOKING NOT TO MENTION PREGNANT. and while my bf was cooking fries she would stand in front of his station eating fries and if he tried to do his job she would tell him to move. There’s nothing wrong with stealing a fry or 2 now and then but she would literally sit there for minutes at a time just eating. The only good employee they had was Zendaya. She has a condition that meant she couldn’t stand for more than like 2 or 3 hours at a time and she needed 15 minute breaks ever hour because her legs were in shrieking pain. Needless to say... she never got her breaks. This job affected my boyfriend so much, this job fucked UP his mental state, he worked 25 hours a week, and with those few hours a week he had already pretty badly injured his wrist and his back. They tried to stick him with 31 hours after the managers quit and the thought of that literally gave him a mental breakdown that’s not a joke I was calming him down and watching him cry for hours over it. Lucky he quit and has a much nicer job in a tea shop now but OH MY GOD THE HORROR STORIES.
I would like to think I've seen both ends of it. I train people in this type of work, and I take pride in going both out of my way to prepare them for both the hard work involved, but to make the introduction easier. But if the higher ups merely endlessly squeeze all skill and willingness out of every brand until it endlessly fractures into more franchises.....and middle management plays along....and at the end customers complain about the inevitable decline in service....this type of work is hell. It *can* be pleasant if hard work. The higher ups can be *good*. You can have a place that has largely good customers. That's *never* the norm. If anyone hates this kind of work, I can I think, fully understand them.
Andrew don't interrupt .
I typed in Andrew for Express VPN so many times, keeps saying page not found. Weird, must be a bug
is this an return or an extange? YES
Drew's eyebrow raises at the Wendy's "revisionist history" part give me life
“Selling is service, and service is selling”
Love this video I am a little stinker.
12:30 As someone who works with food, Why is she back there without a hair net? And why aren't they wearing the appropriate gloves? Seems like she needs to be sucked into a training video about food safety.
8:53 the biness lol
I closest thing we had at Red Lobster was online tests we had to do at work
I worked at Wendy's where you can get simultaneously get burned by grease, cheated on, yelled at by coworker and costomer and receive payment.
Hey Drew, my name is Andrew, not Drew. I get it.
no one will see this but when i worked at Justice (a US store for tween girls) i had to watch a vhs tape (keep in mind, it's 2019) about how to stop someone from shop lifting except it was 5 episodes long, each ranging from 15 to 30 minutes and there were 3 shop lifters, Mr. Lift, Mr. Steal, and Mama. it was very weird and in about episode 3, they did sing a song. it overall taught me nothing because it was from the 90s and shoplifting has since gotten new strategies, but watching 2 greasy men in all leather pretend to steal children's jeans was pretty entertaining.
I saw this too
i saw this, and that’s pretty epic
og my gosh i just realized he looks kinda like eddie redmayne lol
What, that’s not Chuck E. Cheese?🥺😣😖
The Wendy's grill video was so groovy.
My mom used to work at Wendy's, she used to open. She actually had a story when someone forgot to add the patty, and the woman came running back in, waving it around and screeching "WHERE'S THE BEEF?" While laughing.
the Wendys training video is the best thing in the entire universe
Did they really just insert the intro to "Welcome to the Machine" @ 9:40 thinking we wouldn't notice??
At 9:42, is that the beginning of Welcome To The Machine by Pink Floyd?
my training videos have always been terribly boring. at dunkin’ you have to create an account with dunkin’ university i think it’s called? and watch 12 hours of videos broken into 30+ courses and take tests after every one to make sure you were paying attention. quizzing on the heat of coffee and bacon and how to clean the milk machines. i wanted to blow my brains out honestly. you get paid hourly for watching them but it was truly the most grueling part of my time there even when i worked a few 3am-3pm shifts. at jimmy john’s my manager just “forgot” to show me them
The videos i had to watch at fedex freight were pretty epic. Lots of mannequins driving or being runover by forklifts
9:08 as a Wendy’s worker currently I’m cackling
5pm + 10 hours = 3am. You worked at wendy's until 3 am ?
Damn Wendy’s sampled welcome to the machine by Pink Floyd
hey i have that blockbuster shirt too
wow that hair look really good on you. I think it's the sideburns
mmm primark. not a vhs but..... there was such a long video we basically spent the first two days just watching powerpoints and these hordible videos
I just realized this, but in the Wendy's one their idea was to make employees watch a training tape of a guy... watching a training tape..?
I worked at Wendy’s, too. What a time
I had a friend that worked at Chuck E. Cheese and to be honest with you the costume is very dirty and smells bad
5:39 sounds like five nights at freddy’s
I worked at chuckecheese in 2011, I watched that exact outdated training video. I was the pizza guy but everyone had to take turns wearing the costume. So yeah......I've been in the rat suit. You're not allowed to speak while in the costume and the first time I wore the costume I walked out of the training room/costume closet a kid got scared of me and started crying. I apologized to the mom and walked away. My manager pulled me aside immediately and said these exact words "I don't care if that kid was crying, don't fucking talk in the suit." That place was a literal shit show. I ended up quitting because they wanted me to clean shit and vomit out of the tubes lining the ceiling that kids crawl through. I got that job thinking I was going to be making food. I barely made any food.
I used to work at a CVS, and I had to do this onboarding thing when I first started. Our store had this shitty, greasy ass little iPad that I had to keep at my register so I could do the trainings. It was basically a little powerpoint thing you had to click through while a robot lady read them out loud to you, but sometimes it made you go do stuff. For one of them I remember I had to go over to the fridge, check a thing of milk, and make sure it wasn't expired. My personal favorite "units" were money laundering prevention and teen drug abuse prevention, which I did not get paid enough to deal with. there werent any songs tho, so 0/10 from me
Sorry hi Danny
I am pretty sure I worked at a kitchen for a physical rehab place and under their shitty union we had to watch a vhs about work safety.
as a furry who frequented conventions in the before times, the chuck E cheese time out thing doesn't even faze me, though it shows how cheap the suit must be bc there are ways to install fans in the head and stuff to make the heat more bearable. and those eyes are so small, how can you see ANYTHING in that thing? most fursuiters have a friend as a handler to check on them and make sure they're safe, and cons have dedicated rooms with the AC cranked. not to mention water stations everywhere! not like furry conventions were big in the 80s though, lmao
Old Navy definitely had a weird ass training DVD. I vividly remember the fashion montage of what to wear to work which was basically just telling employees to also shop at old navy and only wear capris
Lmao just the thought of them not actually caring if they have to faint, just that they don’t want it to happen in front of the children is very believable that it’s not even funny yet im also laughing haha
The place I work at, when I first started the computer based training was outdated. They had these guys who couldn't act and the did a rip off mythbusters theme. It was so lame. It was hard not to fall asleep. So glad they updated it and got rid of the videos. We do have a CBT for active shooters. Omg was the acting hilarious. You couldn't help but laugh at the guy getting beat with a fire extinguisher.
They turned Chuck E Cheese into Poochie
Who's idea was it to make a mascot a rat for a pizza joint..?
I like how they pretend the beginning of the Wendy's song wasn't the into the welcome to the machine
Shut up, Julie!
Did you add "Welcome To The Machine"?
the wendy’s music smacks
What if there are sprinlocks so don't sweat😰😰😰😰 oh no aghhhhhhhhhh
Rats are actually one of the cleanest animals
I get that Drew. People always call me Abigail even though that's not my name.
Too bad I'm vegetarian. I'd love to eat the best burger inabiness
Aren't all basketball games "blacked-out"?
the first 30 seconds or so is just him talking ab`out his 2021 self
That new Chuck E looks like he's on meth
The training video calls him Chucky, but that's not his name, it's Chuck. Chuck E. Cheese. Fun fact: The E stands for Entertainment.
Why is the billionaire founder of Wendy’s filming his add in a dark closet? 😄
I lost it at the time out signal 😂😂
I just found you and honestly havent had this good of laughs in a while.. thank you!
they showed us at Shopko
I worked at TJmaxx when I was 17. I actually was forced to sit and watch VHS training videos and two of them were awful 90s raps. This was in 2014 but at least I got paid to do it!
You did better videos but at the end, at the begging of advertissement, you remind me to cut my hair, thanks! I m serious.. 🙂🤣 really🙃🏅
I never comment on youtube but i literaly logged in just because i HAVE TO share this lab safety video we watched for a course eeclone.info/glo/mIuWmX6an7CEkZg/video i've seen plenty of safety instruction videos and they're usually incredibly boring but this production was probably the single continuously funny 40 minutes i've ever watched
YES the Nintendo one was my immediate thought when you talked about the rabbit hole
That insert of "human meat" made me laugh a bit
I know my profile picture is a pink floyd album so I may seem a bit biased, but at the beginning of the wendy's training tape at around 9:45, a clip of the Song "Welcome to the Machine" by Pink Floyd plays before being cut out by the wendy's song
I don't like that drew says rats are disgusting... I love them 🥺
At Warby Parker we watched training videos and powerpoints to teach us how to use the POS system, read Rx, and interact with customers. It was just as corny as the VHS trainings in this video. 🤣🤣
That was my experience working at Wendy’s. Short changed on wages.
