Walgreens / discrimination
I am an Assistant Manager at store #2986. I have worked with the company for almost 8 years and truly enjoy my job. But about 1 year ago I was transfered to the Summit store where Mr. Mike Hill is the manager. I am a black female and has worked my way up in the company and am very proud of my accomplkishments. Since being at this store, Mr. Hill has on several occasions complained and not been satisified with anything that I do. He has written me up several times for things that the other managers have done and they have not been written up at all. Today I was written up for being sick and for not calling him specifically. At the time that I was sick, he was on vacation in Texas and I was sure not to disturb him on his vacation. Several months ago my car broke down on the highway, no fault of my own and was stranded with no way to call him and he wrote me up then, even though I did call the store and talked to the manager in charge.
I have documentatiom for all of my accusations and plan to consult an attorney if necessary.
Mr. Hill has no reason to be treating me in this manner and I will not continue to allow it. I am from Dist. 292 where Stella Napoli is the DM and I also plan to call her about this matter tomorrow.
Please accept my complaint and know that something has to be done with store managers who show discrimination to their employees. This man has not hired a black person in our srore since I can remember and there a lot of people like me who are talented and willing to work hard and be committed to your company.
I hope to here from you soon. Paula Portis [protected]
