Burlap Bag Clothing & Boots / unprofessional management/unethical working environment
I worked for them a whopping four days and was asked to leave today for asking a question. Diane the owner told me when I had my interview that she pays well over minimum wage and we would discuss it further that following Friday. She never told me what she was paying me and neglected to even inform me of when I was going to get paid. I asked her a question in regards to where I needed to put an invoice and she vaguely replied just "somewhere on the counter where she could find it later." When I asked if it was ok to put it where she had all her other papers, she blew up at me and said I'm "always trying to go behind the counter and keep getting in her space and I just need to leave it alone", the counter with the cash register mind you where I needed to check people out and where she had her paperwork scattered everywhere. We had an altercation there afterwards when I advised her that I was asking how to do it correctly so I could learn the right way and help them by doing my job right. That is when she said I had an "attitude and should just leave and call it a day." I was very much caught off guard and even more so when asking about my check and pay, she replied, I "might get it today and she was maybe going to pay me minimum wage." She also advised that she was going to give us as "many hours as she could but no promises", so she not only lied about the position being full time but also the pay rate being "way higher than minimum wage." She is unprofessional, doesn't know how to treat her customers or employees, and lies just to get you to do the work without the payment, horrible management, and terrible training habits. I am a very hard working, honest person and have never been talked to or treated this way by anyone, nor did I deserve it, and I can't believe it even happened. When I called later today about my check she said it should be ready tomorrow so hopefully after I get my check and make sure she pays me for hours worked, I'm never going back.

Wow you guys are really sad for trolling a complaint over the misspelling of a word and calling me childish?! You people are pathetic and have no idea what a horrible experience this was for me and yes I am a very honest, hard working person, and anyone who has ever known me can attest. Frankly, your ignorant comments just shows how sad and miserable you guys are and I'm 32 years old lol far from a child. I have been on my own my whole life and have taken care of myself and not that I owe anyone an explanation but I grew up in many different very abusive homes and didn't have a decent parent to raise me so the fact that I chose the road I did and turned out half decent is by the grace of God. You guys are real winners for going on just about everyone else's complaints and just insulting them for no real legitimate reason at all, sad, pathetic, and just down right disgusting.
