Saturn Complaint - Employee Mistreated - employee relations
RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA -- To whom it may concern,
I would like to share my frustration with someone that might listen. My brother is getting married this weekend and one of this best friends works for Saturn. He is a Finance Manager in Riverside area. He is the best man in my brothers wedding (Feb 26th, 2006) and was threatened with termination if he went to the wedding. He asked for 2 days off a month before the wedding and was given the days off. He has since bought a tux and hotel room. Not to mention that his best friend was counting on him for the wedding. Now his manager refuses to give him the time off because they are having a big sale that day. I understand business is business but I am at a loss for words. What would you think if this was you? Would you like you're boss treating you like this?? He works 12-17 hour days and sometimes goes weeks without a day off. That just shows his dedication to the company. Now to repay him for his hard work he was given the option. Either go to wedding and lose job or keep job and miss most important day of friends life. Me personally I would have quit even if I didn't have the money. I know this e-mail will not change anything but would like to communicate to corporation office how their locations are treating their employees. I will never buy a Saturn and will make sure I share this story with every person I come in contact with. Also will post a copy of this e-mail on myspace and all Saturn forum chat rooms. I am the brother of groom and felt this e-mail was necessary. I hope you took the time to read this and I appreciate your time.
