A woman shared in a viral TikTok how working at Buffalo Wild Wings was the worst serving job she’s ever had.

TikTok user @evilherbivorre kicks off the video by stating how she was “hired on as a server with the potential to become a bartender.” She dives into what was wrong with the way the location she worked at was run, specifically the female managers.

The creator describes the managers as very “clicky,” comparing it to “high school,” where the managers were the “mean girls.” Within a few weeks of working at Buffalo Wild Wings, she says it was a nightmare. She jumps into a story of a particular incident where she was called in on Super Bowl Sunday, despite working a double shift the previous day. Regardless of how annoyed she felt, the content creator says she clocked in for work because she “needed the money” and was promised to be the first cut—i.e., the first one to leave.

Once 9pm rolled around, she says the restaurant was “pretty dead.” As time went on, the creator was getting “more and more mad” while wandering the restaurant with nothing to do. Then, she says she mustered her fear of the “spiteful” managers and approached the “most personable” manager, asking calmly about leaving. She claims the manager agreed to talk to the other one about it and disappeared into the office. However, it backfired—the TikToker says the other manager “with the worst attitude” came out, got in her face, and tried to “high school fight” her.

The creator implies the previous manager probably had something to do with it, as the upset manager purportedly told her “you’re cut when I say you’re cut.”

@evilherbivorre wraps up the video by stating she “never went back” but whenever she sees the manager, the manager “tries to flirt” with her husband and “doesn’t acknowledge” her. 

The creator even elaborated more about the job in the caption, writing, “[The] managers were horrible, the GM had a mental breakdown and commuted eventually. Poor guy. Also, my whole first day of training, my trainer didn’t wash his hands a single time.”
