Arden B Complaint - Corporate is currupted.
COLUMBIA, MARYLAND -- I have a big problem with this company. As a former employee, not only was I treated unfairly but also Arden B staff have confided in each other complaining about Arden B's management team. Specifically the store located in Columbia Maryland has the most ridiculous management team I have every worked for. I am going to write a letter to Human Resources to complain about the store manager specifically. She not only was unprofessional forgetting simple things as employee requested day offs, but she was an autocratic manager. She was uncompassionate for sick employees and has even made them show up for work sick.
In one situation, an employee's grandmother had passed away and the manager tried to set a ultimatum that if this employee did not report to work knowing that her grandmother's funereal was on that day, she would be fired. The other assistant managers spoke to the store manager into making her employee give proof that her grandmother really died but showing her the death obituary. This is inhuman and sad that someone would ask for this type of proof. Who in the right mind would joke about her grandmother's death?
Another inhuman thing that this store manager of Columbia location did to me was defending another employee. This employee for the first time met me and has threatened me by saying "I ought to cut you!" When I spoke to the store manager aside after this incident happen she excused the whole thing by saying that's how that employee is and I should not worry. That is very unprofessional.
Sadly the District Director of Arden B finalized my idea of corporate corruption was when she treated me like a criminal during my shopping time at the Arden B in Bethesda. I believe that this individual (not knowing that I was a former worker) judged me on the way I was dressed and discriminated me.
Like I said, I am going to write to the Arden B human resource to complain further but I am deeply hurt by this experience. I will never work for this company again because its management is unethical, immature, unprofessional, and corrupted. The girls who work there, especially in management stereotype their customers and is losing big time.
