Vons - Working with employee's schedules
Management - Complaint
GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA -- I use to work for Vons for 20 years I was a retail sales manager, now my son works there. He has asked the store manager and service manager at the Vons store in Glendale on Glendale if he could have Thursday afternoon off & Saturday morning off. He told them he was in the cadet Academy for the LAPD program. He can work those days just around those shifts. Unfortunately they are not willing to work with him. I never thought in a million years Vons would hinder one of their employees to better themselves. When I was in management for Vons I always work with my employees on there schedule, I've always believed a happy employee makes a great employee. Vons talks about Walmart on how bad they treat their employees, but they are no better. I guess that's why they call Vons the revolving doors employees coming and go because of how bad management treats them.
The only thing I can do now is not shop there anymore and I well ask my friends to do the same. Thee real funny part of this or not, is I still have some friends in their corporate office and they could not believe that the store manager was not willing to work with my son.
