I had worked at this store as an asst manager for approx. 8months, I had to take a leave of absense for personal reasons and in the meantime of being off, I had called the manager(Linda) and left a ton of messages for her to call me and let me know what my schedule would be upon my return to work. I did not hear back from her, until the day I was suppose to work-she had called me two and a half hrs later and left a voice mail on my machine, in which it stated," I had you scheduled to open the store this morning, I did not hear from you, so you are a no-call,no-show and you know what that means", you no longer work here.

Prior to my taking a leave of absense, she had hired two gentlemen that she had previously worked with at a totally different retail store, at which she hired them at four dollars more than what i was making, and they were to be just cashiers(and I was the asst. manager), needless to say, she was really close with one of the men, and had stated since she hired him that she was going to make him asst manager, so needless to say that is exactly what she did with no warning to me, and she did it in such a sneaky way, to make it look like i did not show up for work on purpose, and now they are fighting the unemployment on me.

I wish i would not have lost the voice mail that she left.

The store has not been managed right for a very long time. They can not keep anyone working there because they (Family Dollar Store) treat everyone like crap,no respect, nothing.

In or around August of this yr, my god childs baby child(of just 4months) passed away, I had asked or stated I wanted it off, they refused me! I could not beleive my ears, stated there was no one else to cover my shift, goes to show how much they care about the people that work for them or the customers for that fact. It truely is not a nice store to shop in anymore, not since Linda took over anyway..

More complaints about manager linda's lack of professional behavior

AUTHOR: Kiki - (U.S.A.)

I'm glad that someone else has had experience with this same manager (Linda Mcgree). This posting confirms the assumptions that she is in no position to be managing a store. She needs to be yanked out of that management position and given some proper customer service and ethics training. She's the type to individual that probably did not finish high school and forged qualifications on her resume in order to get a decent job. Her store's a mess and she treats customers and employees like crap. Family Dollar should really consider reviewing these complaints and taking the necessary action before she runs this store to the ground.

AUTHOR: Golddustwoman - (U.S.A.)

did you have any proof showing that you were on a leave of absense? Did you call her from your cell phone?If you did you can show that you called her several times, which maybe you should have personally went up there and ask her, so you would have been noticed in public. Did you miss three days in a row with no call, and no show?If it is three days in a row(not counting the days off) she can't just fire you for that,(family dollar policy). And it is not printed on the schedule anywhere from the company that it is subject to change, but you as a (manager) they have to call and talk to you personaly and tell you that.The pay being more than yours , well that should go before the DM,she cant just give them pay more than you, that has to be ok with DM, and corp., because if they are getting more than you, then they have to be a key holder.

If i were you, stick to the basics with your unemployment, you need to get all your info that you can prove, and you prove to the unemployment that you did not break any rules set out in the handbook, or the strand books that you know of and if you did they have to PROVE it,they have to have PIP's with your signature, and if you are not aware of them, you tell them if you were wrote up, you get a yellow copy and you want to see your handwriting, (it is like this either party of this can be guilty)they have to prove that you violated a company rule, and if they say it is insubordation, they have to by company policy prove you were warned by writing.

And, "if" this is going on with the guys, you need to contact, the loss prevention dept. in your handbook, or any paperwork you have, they can investigate without her DM or her knowing it, they can do night watches, or secret shoppers etc.. But, remeber, be glad you are out of it, this company in my opinon(legal) is something that drains the blood out of a turnip(workers) just think how much your back, legs, arms will thank u on this, unloading trucks etc.. you can find something better, i wish you the best, (that is whether you are telling the truth or not)
