    What about the rumors of the former VP of retail having an affair with the currant VP of contracts for years even while they worked in same department. The VP of contracts is also having an affair with a female DM who is having an affair with other male DM's. The rumors are the LP manager and soon to be VP of loss prevention/security got his job sleeping with the former VP of retail. Rumors have it they got in on in her office many times while the retail office people looked the other way. After sleeping with her, the LP manager went from being a loss prevention agent with no retail management experience to being a retail DM to a LP manager overnight. Amazing what a little sleeping with the boss can get you if the rumors are true. Give him a lie detector test if it's not true. He is going to be your company cop and you should test his integrity like they do with regular cops. The rumors are this company is riddled with sex scandals and inappropriate relations at the upper levels. They are really good about getting rid of middle management and regular employees for this kind of behavior, Way to go Goodwill So Cal. Hope none of it's true because 70% to 80% of your employees have heard these rumors and they are very consistent for rumors. Many of the store managers have seen the VP's and DM's at the local bars drinking and touching then getting in their company cars and driving home. Investigate these rumors because if their true who would want to donate to this company.

    I have worked for Goodwill SoCal as an assistant manager along side Harvey. While working for the company, I had the opportunity to work in 3 different stores, with 3 different managers, and 3 very distinct atmospheres. Harvey was the easiest to get along with and the most organized and dedicated. I am an African-American and had no problems with him at all. I did not brown nose or kiss his [email protected]@ as the complainer states another Assistant, Veronica did. In fact Harvey was very encouraging and offered constructive criticism to all employees on their abilities. In retail, people who want the job interview with a different attitude showing positivity and willingness to work but once they are hired become burnt out quickly because of the extreme amount of work the job entails for such little money. While working at Goodwill I recommended hiring of many associates that I came to regret. Any chance to get rid of somebody that doesn't want to do the job correctly, with efficiency and effectiveness is always welcomed. So when an underachieving employee gets out of line for the smallest reason it is easier to go ahead and fire them or write them up so they can be easily fired later. I don't know any of the employees the complainer speaks of who have been fired and hired, but I'm sure the work ethic of those fired have come in to question. I don't believe this matter has anything to do with race but with those particular people's ability to the job. I assume this complaint has come from someone who was probably fired by Harvey. I hope Goodwill SoCal does take the proper time to investigate this complaint before taking an anonymous complaint that may not have any validity.
