bubblooz tells us more.
Hey! it's the OP posting. I'm very surprised this got posted. Here is some information about the fml/my job. 1) We had a health inspector come last week and our place passed the exam. We are actually a very clean place. 2) The bug problem is being taken care of. There are traps all over the place and a pest control guy is coming in soon. Bugs are very hard to get rid of. Once eggs are laid, they will stay there forever. And the place used to be a KFC. 3) We barely see the bugs actually crawling around. That's a reason why I screamed, it was my first time actually seeing one. 4) Bugs do not go in the drinks or food. Customers watch me make their lattes, pour their coffee, heat their wraps, etc. 5)Even if the health inspector didn't come, if I was to complain and the place shut down- me and all my coworkers would lose our income. Also, typically every food place has their dirty secrets like this. Welcome to the food industry. 4) I am only 16 years old, however I need this job. I can't afford to quit. I pay my cell phone bill and majority of my necessities, and I am saving up for university. 5) I have been looking for a new job for a few months. I am handing out resumes constantly at malls and applying online. It's not easy... especially because I'm a part time student with little experience. The moment I have another job, I will give my two weeks notice in. And also, this experience was horrifying. I screamed so loud I startled the customers. I hate bugs. Once I was finished serving the customer I ran to the bathroom, got the bug off me, and then adjusted my pants so I could tuck them into my boots. I appreciate all the comments and the funny jokes!

Sounds like a horrible place if they hide a bug problem instead of fixing it.
The recession ended almost 5 years ago. How long are people going to keep milking the "in this economy" line before they start looking at who's in charge and laying blame for not allowing it to recover? That said, op is in Canada and most of the country is in pretty good shape right now.
It is just common knowledge that it's inappropriate to scream when there is a bug at work. I'm sure if they are aware they're there it'll be taken care of. I was told the same thing while I was working and we called the exterminator, but for the time being we just kept our mouths shut and killed it when nobody was watching.
I think your coffee shop should worry a little more about the fact there are cockroaches and a little less about how to hide that they are there
I know it's not your fault for the bugs, but you should really tell the health department please. I wouldn't like it if I were to find a roach egg in my drink.
