Yesterday evening, around six pm, my mother and I went to your Dollar Tree (6725 Clinton Highway #101, Knoxville, TN, 37912).When we went to check out...there were two employees up front, both dealing with customers. The open register lights were lit on both lanes. As we were coming up, one was being rude. I couldn't hear what she said, being too far, but could hear the tone.
We walked up to the register, but even though the open light was on, she told me she wasn't open. I said 'oh, ok, sorry I didn't know' and pointed at the light. She snapped at me' CLOSED!'
As I start turning the cart around she suddenly says 'hey you can't take that!'to a customer in the next lane. Mom and I turn around (hearing that, I thought shoplifter?)..and as we turn to see what this woman was going off about, she says 'You can't have those bags they are $40 a box.' The man has ONE in his hand. ONE shopping bag.
He says it's was just one - obviously true.
She responds with she (other cashier) already double bagged your stuff, when she shouldn't have, so give that bag back, too expensive, he couldn't have it.
He gives the bag to his cashier...who was in shock. We all were...there were 5 other customers standing up at registers waiting to check out. He then looked at the woman and told her that Dollar Tree has lost a customer due to this.
Her response: Good!
She was horribly rude and nasty.
The man was polite the entire exchange, even apologizing to his cashier about it (with the way that woman was about it especially with the double bagged items comment, we all think she was probably going to be in trouble from that).
Yes, trouble, that's right...this woman is management!
Is THIS what you want representing your company?
The name on her uniform is Alvena.
If I had EVER treated a customer in that manner I would have been immediately terminated...and later, when I became management myself, I fired people on the spot for it.
