Burlington Coat Factory Direct CorporationUnethical behavior

T Jul 02, 2019 Review updated:


MY son has worked for your location in Niagara Falls for almost a year now . He was promoted to front end . Today when he punched in, he was told that the corporate head loss prevention would like to speak to him . He was in the back office with this person & his manager Dana . He was slid a piece of paper with a signature line & told to sign it. He was not explained to what the paper was for until after it was signed . He was told he was being watched .. and he had stolen a bottle of water .. The head of security interrogated him asking him what else he has stolen without their knowing . I have no problems sending you the 1.99 for the bottle of water .. He said it was an accident . He is not a thief . I do not appreciate him being portrayed as one either. I work for a corporation my self and I have never ever seen this type of ignorance toward another person in my life. First of all if he did something wrong, you explain, you do not make him sign something without explaining what you are signing .. that is protocol anywhere. When he asked what it was for, he was told it was to be paid for his upcoming vacation. The second page was his "confession" and he was fired . He was then told to turn in his badge & HR wouldn't be able to tend to his case for a month ? A month really .. because the corporation I work for, it is taken care of within 2 days . He is upset, as am I . He is 20 years old . This is not his first job, nor will be his last . However it will be the last time I shop at Burlington .

    He should have paid for the water or brought his own.

    He didn’t read the paper but just signed it? Not too bright, is he? You never sign without reading the paper first.

    Was this his first offense? Being fired over a bottle of water seems harsh. Did he offer to pay for it then?

    Are you sure your little angel didn’t steal anything else? You’re taking his word as the truth.

    Your child is a thief and a mommas boy...let him take care of his own battles at work. He’s no victim.
