I was helping a customer at Party Max in Boardman, Ohio. We were out of stock and i went to the back wharehouse to check on overstock and was cornered by the 2 nd shift manager who asked me if I was carrying a weapon. Then the owner of the store came and cornered me in the back room and asked me the same question. I carry my hairbrush in my pants everyday and now I'm being accused of carrying a weapon. I couldn't believe what I was witnessing.

I felt extremely threatened by the owner who was in my face and kept sexually harrassing me to pull my shirt up. I told him no...he asked me 3x to pull my shirt up to expose myself. And said that I coundnt work at his store unless I exposed myself to him.

David Burda has a record of sexually harrassing women in his office and referring to women as 'bitches'. He has even pulled out his pocket knife on us during work hours and claimed to have been joking.

He told the managers that he would never make me manager even though I have my MBA and 15+ years in corporate because I'm slow, black and further stated he wouldn't even hire me to clean his bathroom. I do plan to seek justice and put a stop to this inequality and unfair treatment.

AUTHOR: Party Max Employee - (United States of America)

First off, I have been Employed with Party Max
for 2 years. And have never witnessed any of the accusations Mrs. "Butterfly"
is claiming. Second, I personally saw you carrying a gun in your paints. You
were simply asked if your were carrying a weapon, you said no it was your "box
cutter", now you claim it was your "brush... I realize your making it
up as you go along, so its hard to keep it all straight. We asked you so show
us that it was a box cutter, not to "lift your shirt" as you are
suggesting. We have signs posted that no concealed weapons are permitted in
this store. They are located at the entrance of the store. If you were so
"innocent" then you could have simply shown that it was a box cutter
and not a gun. Third an employee that has given you rides to and from work on
several occasions, admitted that you had a gun and she saw it as well, and that
you carried it on you all the time. If our customer would have seen that gun in
your pants this situation could have been a lot worse. We have policies for a
reason, you are not an exception. So Mrs. Butterfly please next time you want
to make up lies and rant about something out of pettiness and pure anger, you
should consider all the facts and that you had a choice to prove your innocents
and keep your job. You however chose to so walk out because you knew you were
caught. And Last you were probably not considered for a superior position because
you were not qualified to fulfill the duties. Regardless of what degrees you
have....  you could not perform the daily
duties as "just a cashier" how can you expect the company to see you
in a management position... good luck in your future endeavors.
