Movie Gallery Complaint - Treatment of customers/employees
MORTON, MISSISSIPPI -- My huband worked for Movie Gallery for a year and ended up having to quit because of a car accident in 12/05. He was an honest, hard worker for Movie Gallery. He had to quit because his mother, sister, nephew and our son were in a car wreck that immediately killed his mother, and 3 days later, took our son from us. I am sure you can understand why he could not give 3 weeks notice of his need to quit the job. Its summer now and things have gotten a little more stable. He went to Movie Gallery and filled out an application. The application was delivered to the manager who in turn tore the application and threw it in the trash can. She stated to the employee who was there that "he is lazy, just because he lost his mother and son is no reason to just quit". ANYONE who has ANY type of compassion would never have said that. These were extenuating circumstances. Its not like he just kept the store hanging, he let them know it would be a while before he could come back so therefore he wanted to resign. We have submitted a letter to the corporate office. After we get a response (or lack thereof) we will come back and let you all know what has happened in this problem.
Just a note, please make sure you tell your child, mother, husband and friends that you love them and care about them EVERY time you leave them...you never know when that will be your last chance to tell them.
