resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I believe there is not much help they can provide me.
I will elaborate:
I moved to Vermont to start a new life. I remarried, to a wonderful man and slowly applied for small positions because I was in school full time. I saw an online add for in store customer relations. I applied for a host position to represent food brands and be a host for sales and customer relations. It was in the same store my new husbands ex-wife and minor daughter worked. I applied online, 3 weeks later never heard back. I approached the manager and he told me to re-apply, which I did. According to a friend I was working a temping position at, informed me that Price Chopper, specifically can't hire immediate family members. I was astonished because my now step daughter worked there for a few years along with her mother, same shifts, same store. I was then told that My co-workers cousin was fired by Richard Ravelin, the store manager because he was related to a Eugene Bessette. I was pretty annoyed but dismissed it. The economy fell last year and now I find out that the first step daughter was moved to the pharmacy because she is attending college in the field of pharmacy, and the other step daughter (*her younger sister) was also hired in March to work in the same store. I was just at this store last week and saw that all three of them worked the same hours on that day at the same store. Let me also tell you that at the time of her new hire, they weren't even advertising. They didn't advertise to anyone. It was inside and there were no other girls interviewed for summer work. But she worked 3 days a week. I'd say that I was shocked, so I contacted Goleb corporation and spoke to an Associate Representative and asked what their corporate policy was. Apparently my friend was correct, and Stephanie at their 1-800 number informed me that it is never allowed and if so, certain allowances would have to be justified. I said oh really? like what? She didn't continue but became annoyed when I reported my findings. I felt that they sent a poor example of corporate dealings, Ethically this was a policy just on paper and not adhered to. I explained who I was, the fact remains that you teach your children independence, right and wrong, honesty and morals. If they learn young in life that rules were meant to be broken. That rules do not have to be followed, that it is not important to follow the rules. You are also teaching them to make bad choices. As a parent, I would be ashamed that my children are breaking the rules and I approve. Condoning this lack of integrity shows how completely screwed these kids will be later in life. This is a definite sign of America's flawed society. One thing to keep in mind when you raise productive and independent children. Teach them the difference between right, and sometimes right. Since when is Right and wrong grey areas of society??
