Eloquent – December 10, 2012
It appeared to me to be a dog eat dog environment. The district manager could accuse one falsely just to protect themselves and their own gross negligence. One store that I went to work for was invested with mice and there were mouse droppings all over the products on the shelves.I found it first day on the job. In the back stock areas there were bags of rat poison. True. Product had expired and it was still on the shelf. Some stores are not in good condition with holes in the walls which allow rodents or insects inside the store or a room with unfinished sheet rock.....another toxic problem. Average dollar sale and units per transaction are extremely important as you have pointed out.Suspicion runs high in that work environment. I walked into a store just recently and cigarette smoke was coming from the outside permanent ashtray right into the store. Who wants to be injured working or shopping in their stores? Isn't health the point here. The company needs to address these problems and in some cases contacting the mall and/or closing their stores in those locations.
