Ross Dress For Less - Ross Stores Inc. / unfair labor paractices
Discrimination against age and race of employee. Of Russian origin and over 40 years of age, this store mistreated my wife terribly. She was required to sift through garbage to retrieve hangers, which were then used to hang clothing on without any cleaning being done.
She was sent home for wearing jeans one day. Later a young Caucasian female was hired and was made a manager – with pierced lip with ring in it, visible tattoos, (against company policy) and she often wore clothing not allowed by company policy, yet she was not required to go home and change this as my wife was.
Now she has been fired because she was helping the wrong section of the store get ready for closing after hours… She finished her area in the fitting room and was helping in men’s clothing while the manager was there yelling at the employees to finish by 10:30 or she would cut their hours… Just an ignorant manager trying to get people to perform with threats – this is uncalled for and unacceptable. This store hired 16 new employees and after one week 13 had quit… This is a management problem, not a problem with employees – and it starts at the top with the corporate offices.
This store unfairly uses most all employees as “part time” even though they are short of enough employees to serve their needs. My wife requested more hours but was refused because Ross Stores Inc. takes unfair advantage of certain laws regarding part time employees. The purposely restrict hours to less than 40 to take advantage of the part time laws and overwork their employees.
Recently a woman working in their stock room DIED – was taken by ambulance from work and died a few days later in the hospital from heart problems.
They refuse to give employees breaks and often refuse to give lunch time. They do not even make provisions for employees to use the rest room. My wife worked at the fitting room and was told to not leave her post unless she got a replacement – when she called for a replacement the call was ignored.
Fear is used against employees as an incentive to work. If you do not perform miracles, you will be fired and get a poor job recommendation. This is very unfair stress on employees.
There are good reasons that these stores have many customer complaints – too much work for too few employees who are refused hours so that the big corporate offices can rake in more profits. Customers should put the pressure where it should be placed – complain to the managers about their management of the stores, not to the poor employees who do all they can. Then complain directly to the corporate offices – to those money hungry predators at the top – jerks should be put in jail for what they do to employees and for manipulating the laws concerning part time employees.
Many companies are now manipulating the laws of part time employees, refusing to give them full time employment to save the almighty dollar. My wife consistently worked 38 hours a week and was refused full time even though they were short of workers.
I suggest that people refuse to do business with these stores – pay a few dollars more to shop where employees are not treated like animals. You will find that customers are also treated better in the other stores.
