I would love to get this resolved, to where I could continue being a n Associate of Family Dollar..I loved my job, my customers, my team members and I was an asset to the company, so a lot of the customers informed me.
All three times I was persuaded not to step down and or told to work in the store.Due to Transportation issues that was the only store that I could work in and maintain my current wages.I wasn’t one store went to another store to help out and it was so far away I asked them that when I came back from my vacation if they could put me in a store closer to home.Well when I got back they put me in a store that does not need anyone I went from getting 35 to 38 hours to getting like 5 hours only on truck day I asked if I could help out in other stores to get more hours my district manager told me straight up no I have to stay in the store that he put me in there is no floating.I had even told the previous DM that I feared she,my manager was going to fire me as well as discussing this with our new DM. My SM had wrote me up on incidents, that others had done as me, but they never got wrote SM even commuted an act on numerous occasions,according to FD own policy could of been subjected to immediate termination, which I followed our procedures, by using the chain of command, and honestly the only thing it got me was fired, which is not fair, it’s not right.
I’ve placed numerous calls to different managers, the DM as well as the Regional Manager as of to date, I have not herd from any of them!!!The company opened their 100th store in 1971 and had 300 stores by 1978.In 1981, the company had 400 stores and by the end of that decade, 1,500 stores.He had been working at his parent’s five and dime clothing store since he was 14.He convinced his mother to let him use the basement as a “bargain basement” type of store. After getting married and working hard at a factory, Leon had saved ,000 to start his own “Family Dollar” store. The company quickly expanded to South Carolina (1961), Georgia (1962) and Virginia (1965).When reporting that some of our missing money came from other assistant managers and cashiers, I was told that things will be handled and it was not.
