Well let me start by telling you this has gotta be the worst company to work for. They sure know how to cover their own tracks.
I started working for this company in Nov of 2003 around christmas and of course its busy. Well my manager was nice for a while that soon changed I got screwed twice befor I got a promotion she kept giving it to new employees. Finally I got the job as the assistant manager then thats when HELL started. My manager never wanted to pay overtime she would keep my in the store all day by myself to run the register to engrave stock and by god if the store was not clean when she came back even if there were customers in the store she would call you lazy glare and yell at you for the customers and the whole mall to here.
You could be in that store all day and not get a break at all and if you had to go to the bathroom because she or the other 5 family members of hers were late and you were caught you got severly repremanded. It was only ok for her to be sick one time I worked a whole week with the flu and got so bad that I got bronchitis she would not come in for me and I threw up on myself she told me to wipe it off with napkins cause theres only 3 hours left till the mall closes. Thats the minor thing she was only allowed so many grid hour for the store and her 40 were not included so when you got overtime she would put the hours on her overtime and pay regular pay out of her pocket which you never got paid for all of your hours. When I confronted the company with the allegations they told me they would solve it a week later I was terminated and they said I Quit see the mean vulgar manager never gave me a scheduel and when I called to ask for it her daughters roomate said he would have her call me later I found out he became the assistant manager.
When I called them they blamed it on me and said I was lying. I Aplied for unemployment as I had worked there for over a year and got accepted and the harrasment did not stop knowing they owed my approximently 3000. dollars in overtime pay which at that time I could have proved. They would not let me have copies of the times on the register reciepts and compare them to what she entered into the system as payrol. They appealed to Unemployment and lied and they lost twice and out of this we asked why the manager was terminated was it because of me they ansewerd indirectly.
After this my spirit was broken I hope its only this store out of the 800 stores that treat employees this way.
