Kmart Complaint - Management
ROCHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- Okay so I worked at a Kmart in Rochester, Pa for 6 months now. At first I liked the job and everything but after awhile I noticed the managment team seemed cocky and rude. I only called off twice because I could not make it to work. They gave me 2 points for the calloffs. Then I was late one time and they added a half point to that. They would tell me I had a overage or shortage on my drawer a few times but they never showed me the proof. Another thing is the restrooms they are disgusting. Nobody goes in to clean them ever. There has been a stall with an out of order sign for over a month now. Everytime the cash registers would freeze up and shut off for no reasons, management would blame it on us cashiers, when if they would keep up with matinance they wouldn't have that problem now. The store is also very dirty and filthy looking. I would go to work and come home feeling nasty and filthy and itchy. Then the k cafe, they rarely ever have everything thats on the menu in stock, not only that but they let the food that they cook sit on a hotplate for hours, and when someone finally buys the food, they don't even heat it up. I've gotten the pizzas there before and they taste gross after being left out for hours it was also cold so the hotplate don't keep it heated for long. Last but certaintly not least, the store manager JIM is horrible. I just recently decided to quit smoking, so I went into work this morning with a nicotine patch on. This was my 1st patch. After 10 minutes of being there I started to feel faint and dizzy. I barely made it to the bathroom because I knew if I didn't make it to the bathroom I was going to passout. I knew I developed a bad reaction to the patch after feeling like I was going to passout. I told one of the other managers TIM that I needed to go home because I wasn't stable enough to work. He told me he would talk to JIM. So JIM talks to me and tells me either work or I'm getting fired. He was more concerned with the divisional manager coming in today than one of his employee's health. I seriously sat in his office and I felt this really bad cramping pain in between my thighs. All he was concerned about was himself and the store. I really hope someone steps in and gets rid of JIM and the other management team or shut the damn store its the best for us. they obviously need a management team who doesn't have their heads up their asses.
