To whom it may concern,
Until today I was an employee in Florence, Al. To make a long story short I asked for managements honest feedback and there were 2 lies in the conversation. The first one I said I had to say she was lying and the second one I called her a liar. As I was telling her that, in my opinion she doesn't do what she is being paid to do, she aggressively stepped toward me and bumped my chest with hers. Immediately the G.M. got between us to diffuse the situation and sent the shift manager home. In our subsequent conversation Joyce said she did not see me instigate or use profanity
in any way. Her story has now changed to my using profanity after I was threatened. Is profanity against company policy? I heard it every day. Also, regardless of the language I used, there is never a time to physically touch anyone at the job.
I can not imagine that an employee should be fired for a difference of opinion and I am shocked that Pizza Hut would fire an employee that has been threatened by a manager. Was I fired for using profanity or telling a manager they were
lying or was I fired because I worked hard and people were threatened by that? Am I being discriminated against? Is this the consistent penalty that applies when employees disagree with a manager? I was accused of not performing. How was I suppose to improve without feedback? Yet if I seek feedback and don't agree with everything I can be bullied? This
goes beyond a hostile work environment and reaches the level of a dangerous work environment.
Though I have not worked there long, I have put in 8-9 hour shifts with no break and no complaints. I work and I
take that very seriously.
I understand that Alabama is an at-will state but what culture is being promoted in Pizza Hut.
