I worked for office max they falsely deny you of your benefits; this is the only company that would do such a thing. I have done everything to sell there add-on to try to get their customer's signed on to this max perks. As soon as you are interviewed and sign sum papers the store manager briefly says anything about seasonal position. However, that is not the point the point is that once I tried getting my benefits they outright lie about your employment status. Instead of firing you, they say you quit the job intentionally.
Here is how: when I worked for office max of July 2008 to Sept '08 my 90 day grace period I did everything by the book. However, here is the catch the day before my 90-day period I was short a large amount. It was acknowledge by one of the employee supervisors (the manager on duty) and the next day I was pulled into the office for that following reason not only that his excuse was I wasn't the right fit and not only that the job was seasonal I pleaded with him and even compared to him on what opportunity, In whether I chose this job or a us cellular. I told him that I choose this job because I thought positive about the place. Bad mistake instead of thinking to choosing US cellular I am left without a job until Christmas and mass load of bills to pay. I was hoping to get my benefits and looking for a job at the same time until I am hired. However, no, I am denied my benefits and have to make an appeal.
The employer's response is that they assumed that I quit the job unknowingly because of the Loss prevention counseling and was not aware of it. How so? When I had to take extensive amount of training courses (company policy) with the company why did I have to get LP counseling if I took regorious LP quizzes. In addition, the store manager did not abide by the company policy to get me verbal or written actions. Instead, terminate me on the spot.
I have called a quite a bit of office maxes to make sure what were the following procedures. And yet this is my 1st till shortage out of the 90 day's that I worked their In addition, here is Once Archie the store manager from the Kirkland office max says:yes that's shock, its states in the office max rule book that if your short that much you cant take into consideration just to terminate you, you can't be liable for that just one transaction, you have to go through many steps to get actually terminated.
the moral of the story is always when you want to try and get your benefits alway's try to ask for a seperate sheet of paper of your termination and read it thoroughly.
