The Salvation Army — screw over and abuse their hardworking employees
Was hired in Nov. 2009, as the Store Manager...after the last one was mean to employees, was mean to customers...my business was lost in the Iowa Flood of 08. Needed health insurance. Pay was 8.00 pr hour, and bonus...IF you qualified. Saved everything..but criminal actions by my landlord resulted in everything I owned was destroyed. Long Story, lawsuit pending...they committed 4 crimes, 2 federal crimes.
I know the 2nd hand business like the back of my hand, my first month there, cleaned and organized the entire store, even sized the clothes. Increase of sales...68%. Over the 9 month period...my total monthly increase 67&. Almost doubled the business in March. A clean organized, good price store. With half of the employees as I had when I started.
My very 2nd week there, after my 40 hours...an employee called in sick. So I called other employees, no one available.
So I called my district manager and asked what should I do? I already put in my 40 hours (this was sat=btw)..and the guy on staff had a disability...anziety.. ..the nicest guy you will ever meet. But, we had a big madness sale going on.,
and leaving him alone would not of been good.
Anyway, so I call my boss and ask...what should I do? He said you will have to go in. So I said...well I don't know the procedure for the paperwork for the overtime hours...now get this...he says...oh no...you can't clock in...no overtime allowed and if you clock in, you will get wrote up...so I said...so I won't go in...then he said...Its your job to verify the deposit and ensure the employe gets their break, and if you don't do that...you will get wrote up. We went through this seniro 3 times...so I went in and worked for free. Because I was screwed either way...
When employees quit, I was not allowed to replace them, yet the constant threat of getting fired or wrote up if I didnt get my required amount of daily sales...Corporate popped in on suprise...asked where is all my employees...found out I was short handed, told them to get me a full timer to start...not only did they not give me a full timer...they cut my %$ allowed payroll hours. So I get punished for upping the business by almost 70% from the year before. Makes sense. Umm no.
This went on for almost 9 months, until I couldn't process stuff faster then it was coming in.
Saved the 20K in payroll, 12K in free wages by me...Increased sales by almost 100K,
I couldn't keep working almost 40 hours free. For three months I called to get more help. Nothing. Sent pictures and inventory records to show we were getting hammered..nothig. So I called corporate...and got fired.
Salvation Army is pure evil, greed. Don't donate. The thing I got fired for...was sending their pallets of clothes back in the delivery truck, so they don't get rained on.
They refuse to give me a copy of my personal record. Greed ...
