Burlington Coat Factory / harassment

I have been currently working at Burlington Coat Factory store #471 for a year in the youth dept. i have to say its a terrible job, the type of people that shop there its ridiculous. they shop like pigs. they come in make a mess, steal and when it comes time to check out, they alwa is leave stuff at the registers. i mean if theyre not going to buy something, why do they pick it up in the first place.

Second, theres this manager named Georgiana who does nothing but harass me and give me a hard time every chance she gets. she writes me up for no reason, she threatens to fire me shes constantly on my case just for the fun of it. not to mention that she called me lazy once. she gets on people just for talking which i think is ridiculous. she recently wrote me up last week because she claims i was in another department talking, i of course didnt sign the paper because i knew i wasnt true and i knew i was working. she said i didnt have to sign it but that she was going to call the HR manager and the district manager on me because according to her, its my third or fourth write up for talking which is a big lie. which by the way she lies alot about alot of things.

the lady has problems, because when we have to close with her she will keep us there all night, we can be done with our departments and she will still keep us there two or three hours after we've closed. its like she doesnt have a life, she even said it that she has no life so "burlington" was her life. thats so sad to know!! she may not have a life but the rest of us do. she says its company policy that we all have to leave together and that nobody can leave early. which is also not true.

people have complained about her previously to the coorporate office, but its like they dont take action. they talk to her and say things to her, she'll calm down for a couple of weeks then she'll be back to how she was before. i dont know why they dont just fire her and get it over with! also we dont have a store manager, its been like that for the past six months, we got a new store manager named Doug in May only for him to get fired two months later thanks to Georgiana just like what happened with the manager we had before Doug. i think we might as well not have a store manager because Georgiana will do anything to get rid of them. i think its her that they should of gotten rid of instead. she acts like she owns and runs the place which she doesnt.

another thing is that people tend to show favoritism around that store. for example there are people Georgiana doesnt say anything to if she sees them talking. and then a couple of weeks back, the accountant made a rude comment to me and i snapped back at her. she went and told the other manager we have Manzar, that i cursed her out and he wrote me up. that was so not fair because he was there when she said what she said to me and he acts like he didnt hear it. not to mention that they dont give you the days you request to work and to be off. they want you to work whenever they want you to, and if you call off just one time they make a big deal about it. which i dont think its fair because we cant help it that things come up when you least expect it.

i wish i had never worked for thais company. there they take advantage of you, and then they want to overwork you for little or nothing. the management there is just terrible. i felt like i just had to vent about the harassment and mistreatment i go through at Burlington.

    This is all to common with Burlington Coat Factory. Your store is not the only one this happens too...it seems like LOUD people run the store instead of store managers.

    YOU HAVE NO IDEA. THE STORE MANAGER AT MY STORE IS EXACTLY THE SAME!!! AND NOT THAT I DONT AGREE THAT YOUR MANAGER IS [censor]ED UP BUT MINE HAS DONE SOME REALLY MEAN HORRIBLE HEARTLESS THINGS TO PEOPLE. I KNOW THAT THE STORE CLOSEST TO THE BURLINGTON I WORKED AT IS THE SAME WAY AND SHE ALSO THREATENS GOOD WORKERS JOB DAILY BECAUSE SHE FOR SOME REASON DOESNT LIKE THEM

    So first of all i like to talk about the dating we have there at Burlington Coat factory in Mundelein, IL. I didn't know that its okay for people whom are managers to date there staff their employees. They show favoritism to there men only. You can work as hard as you like but you never get an promotion if your an lady working there. they pick on you always & say nothing but negatives things to say to you. If it isn't you color that keeps you from getting head than its because your an lady. It plain and simple BAD management is there and Corporate does nothing to help there employees. You can complain over an thousand times and they do nothing. They talk about code of ethics respecting each other... why do it if the Store Manager slanders you every chance he gets. Really why work for an company that doesn't values its employees or workers they have... They would rather hire outside the store than promoting within. WOW I don't what to do about this problem we have in Mundelein, IL. Please help...
