Staples Complaint - Staples: See it Through An Employee Eyes
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- As a worker of Staples, you're probably wondering why am I writing a complaint about my place of work. I have worked there less than a year and already realized how evil the actual cooperation is. I stepped into Staples for my first interview. As I walked in, I noticed the manager, arguing with a customer using vulgar language. Whether or not the customer deserved it, no one is to speak to any one else in such a tone. After all, a manager was promoted to that position due to their excellent customer service skills. Is this the proper way for a person of authority to act? Ofcourse we're all humans and lose self-control at times but you are there to set an example. I was astonished by this behavior.
After a few months passed by into my starting of the job, I began to get sick. I have a few health conditions. I was forced to call out. I did call and tell them I am willing to provide a medical note even though I am t required to. I never heard the end of it. The managers then began to gossip about it. I was infatuated but decided to keep my cool. Two months later, I was in ER. Unable to actually call out because I was unconscious they had another temper tantrum. I provided medical notes for them the very next day. Again, I never heard the end of it.
Staples says they care for their employees and are flexible when in reality, they can give two cents about you. The only way they would sympathize with you, is if you actually die in front of them. Even then they'd be upset and wonder why you didn't call out instead. It's a lose lose situation.
Onto the way they speak to their employees. It's as if you are second class citizen. No, worse. You are nothing but a smudge on their mirror. The dirt between their toes. They will disrespect you in countless way and make you feel as if you are below them. Let's face it. Yes they are a manager but last time I checked, they were a human being just like everyone else. There's an "open door policy" at Staples. It's where you can speak "freely" to your managers. They began this to stop others from forming a union. [They even showed a video going against unions.] This system they have is total BULL SHNIIT. The managers are unapproachable and terrorize you. That way you're afraid to speak up and stand up for yourself. When you wish to speak to them, they also "don't have the time" or "can't do it right now". And THIS is how they expect to keep workers. I admit it I have loved my co-workers but my soul has been sucked out of me.
Staples, my dear soul succubus Staples. I hope you burn to ashes.
