Okay....so I used to work at a big home improvement store......not Home Depot. Key word "used to work". See, I got fired a few days ago.....or "terminated" as they said. I had never been written up or fired at or from a job before, so needless to say I was a bit surprised. They said that I was being wrote up for telling two other employees that I refused to help them and since I had been written up on other occassions that this was causing me to lose my job. Now, let's go back in time. First of all, the days that I was accussed of not willing to help people......I didn't work that day.....04/29. Previously to being called into the office(NOT EVEN ON THE CLOCK YET) I was helping a fellow employee cut carpet for a customer.....and prior to that, checking on a couple of special orders.........again, not on the clock. A previous write up had to do with a promo we were running. Free pad with carpet install. Well, you have to have a manager log in to change the price. I asked a manager to log in for me and he wrote the # down for me to use. A couple days later I get questioned about it.......and given a final warning. Now why would I get a final warning or even written up? A MANAGER let me do it.........anything wrong with this picture??? I assumed he knew policy better than I..... Another occassion, tried to move a palet of countertops and the bands broke and they all slid off, most broke. A dept. manager saw it, realized that I was not at fault and told me to leave it for nightstocking to take care of......and I left to go to a late class. Get called in the next day and written up for leaving early and leaving the mess and not reporting it. Again, a MANAGER told me to leave it and was aware of the situation and I had given them my availability, they knew that i had class in the evening and had to leave at a certain time. AND FINALLY.......written up for not wearing safety goggles while cutting tile. This had NEVER been enforced or talked about. I had regular glasses. Another person did the same thing and did not get written up. I got another final warning. How a person has TWO final warnings.....I dunno??? Ironically after I was gone they moved the appliance manager to the department that I worked in......they had known they had to move him for some time. He had been there for 10+ years and I for three. Clearly they could not afford both of us.....he was there longer and I am no longer there. If you have read this far........what do you think of the whole deal????
