Need help please .

I just started a new job at KFC as a kitchen crew member . My boss said I did not have to wear gloves while I handled the chicken . But some costumer complained and threatened to phone the food inspector( or whatever you call it ) . Everyday the same lady shows up and is watching me do my work and I wear gloves at all times now . I get nervous when someone stares me down while I try to work .How do I deal with it since I just started and would like to keep my job .

I think they would've made you do a Food Safety Assignment before allowing you to do the job, right? If you get fired, it's mostly your boss's fault for saying that you don't need to wear gloves whilst handling chicken... Because from my experience, you definitely do... Just continue wearing gloves and don't freak out anymore..........

Be careful when someone at KFC tells you that you don't need to wear gloves as they don't have a good track record: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-tees-38692014.

If you are talking about handling raw chicken though the issue would be more around transferring salmonella or other nasty bug to other parts of the kitchen. I assume that you have to remove or dispose of the gloves before going to a different stage of the preparation? If not, it really defeats the purpose of wearing gloves to begin with.

I do not have to change the gloves when I go to the flower part . But I do throw them out when I go to do another batch .

Well, technically if your boss said you didn't have too then whatever. Probs a good look to wear gloves though if possible.

TBH the customer sounds like they have there own problems. Staring you down is annoying, maybe they should go elsewhere.

You can always refuse service and have the customer barred from the store, they may be scaring away more business than they bring.
