Lowe's Complaint - I should have stayed a puppet for Lowes
TENNESSEE -- I have worked for Lowe’s for four years now but that ended with some trumped up charge. I was due for a vacation. For two years the delivery team was me and my manager. We had things running like silk. That alone saved that store money. Then came the regime change. These pampas little young punks thought they had it al. They thought they could change things for the better. Well, when something is running like silk then why try and fix it. Now I am a hard worker and when they ask me to come in on my days off or go home and come back for a late delivery I did for the fear of losing my job. Now some may just say this was paranoid thinking on my part. I worked on my weekends off with that same fear of being fired and at my age that would mean devastation for my family and that scared me. Another year passes and I now find myself going out on the road with as many as five side by side refrigerators on my truck. I would have to take these out alone and this happened many times. When I refused I was told to do it or they would get someone else that could. Maybe this was a miscommunication on my part. I don’t know who else would go well above and beyond the call of duty but I sure did my part so I thought. I would say “I did it, I took out six side by sides and nothing got damaged or destroyed.” They would say things like “What do you want, a metal?” I am a paranoid person and maybe I just heard those things. I put in for a vacation when they denied it. “Everyone works on the third and forth of July.” They said. I took the 5th, 6th, 7th , 8th and 9th instead. Well on Monday of that week I was asked to do them a favor. “A FAVOR” to go home and come back later that day. I am not a rich man, I work for Lowe’s and gas is so high but I told them I would do it. My being paranoid felt, if I didn’t do as they said I would be fired. Well that night I fell asleep and my family saw how tired I was after working nine days in a row by myself for this company they decided to let me sleep. I walked into Lowe’s, that Next morning. I WALKED IN TO THE STORE TO WORK. They let me load a truck with fourteen deliveries on it. I did and then I was fired for reneging on the favor. You see folks; it is not being paranoid when you think you will be fired to refuse horrendous tasks by the management of Lowe’s. It is the Lowe’s way. Either do it or get out. Oh sure, they have wonderful customer service skills but as for their employees they are nothing short of tyrants. I broke my back for that store and one time I took one of there so called favors back and poof they fire me. Oh well, I have my books I sell like Growing up Goomba as well as a host of others. I also got a better job the very next day. When Lowe’s fired me I shook the manager’s hand and told him “Good Luck.” He will need it for now they have a driver that drinks al day to deal with. He will kill someone and then Lowe’s will pay dearly. That was my rant and don’t mind the grammar please, I am just pissed off right now. Well Shown, I hope you are happy now. You have a delivery team worth a dime now. I know how you always said the delivery team wasn’t worth a dime and now they are. I stuck up for you too Some one told me that you weren’t sh*t but I told them you were. Good luck, you don’t know what you have done.
