Oh boy, do I disagree with these answers. Your manager needs to go to manager school. She is basically trying to make you feel stupid by talking to you this way. If the first show starts at 2:00, people have to buy the tickets before the show starts, so how would you know what time to open to start selling the tickets? The correct way to answer is: "we open at (insert time)." If you have a problem, the correct response is, "let me show you how to do this" with no attitude. You are learning a new job and you asked her so of course you are watching. Does she think you would ask her and then not watch? I d stick it out for a short while, if it doesn t change, look for another job. Don t be discouraged.
Almost always the "manager" at a place like a movie theater is just a ticket taker who has been there the longest. A real manager has had training.
For the past 10 years or so there has been something in the business world known as creating a non hostile work environment. This means workers can no longer hang naked girly pictures, make unwanted sexual advances, call people names, harass and bully people, drink, smoke, or otherwise create an uncomfortable work environment. In other words people no longer have to put up with your crap. No, she can NOT talk to new trainees however she pleases because she is the ego inflated "manager." No, you are not being "too sensitive" and no you do not have to just stand there and take it. Getting a new job is the easiest thing, or you will have to stand up to her, or do both.
