Complaint / review text:
I was recently hired at Dollar General in Tyrone, PA, my first day was not scheduled but I went in when the manager called the day before for 2 and half hours. She put me in the office to do all the pc work and it was really distracting because several of the employees kept coming in talking over the sound from the pc, this made it hard for me to hear and concentrate. The Office smelt very badly of smoke to the point I was nauseous, I am not a smoker but I can tell you somebody is smoking in that office. The manager was in a hurry to leave that day I found out because she came in and told me she was pist because I was not done yet and she argued with me about one of my certificates that I am to print up, which I knew I did I heard it and saw it, but another employee had come in while I was working and removed papers from the printer, yet the manager treated me as if I did not know what I was talking about. She also said "By the way if you feel the need to bring a purse then leave it in your car or you take your chances with trusting people". I believe we should all have a locker, also when I needed to go to the bathroom she was irritated and said in a very negative tone " You can not use the sink " so my question is how is everybody washing their hands or are they just not and then checking customers out??? I found out the next time I worked which was that Monday that there is no way to wash up, I was told by another employee who did not give me her name I only found out later that it is Jessica and that she is a key holder, I was told to count my draw. I have worked in retail for over 10 years and was the Assistant Manager of one chain and I never used the machine they had where you put the coins on it and it counts for you, because I had never seen it done that way this employee was rude and treated me like an idiot, mind you this girl is much younger then me I could be her mother. Once that was done she told me to get on register and I was left fending for myself not knowing where bags were except the few on the floor, I was told to push the button on the phone if I needed help. The system in every store I worked for is not the same and at times I had questions and Jes had attitude every time I asked a question. She also argued with me in front of several customers when the customers ATM card would not work and she told me that I needed to push F3 and when I tried to tell her I know this and I did this many times and that this was about the 5 or 6 time I tried for this one customer she treated me like I was lying. This girl gave me attitude until she clocked out, she also was going around the corner saying things to other employees about me. I heard her and many of the customers go to my church and they told me themselves. I I have no idea where the manager was. I was never told to tuck my shirt in and they never have theirs tuck in but yet I was given a hard time about it, I was never spoken too about when the schedule is put up and when I told the Manager Phyllis that I could not work on Tuesday because I had a doctors appointment she was nasty in the store with me and she said "well you have to find somebody to take your shift" This appointment was scheduled 4 months ago. She also told me that I have to give two weeks notice for this, well I have not even been there at this point for 1 week. I have appointments still that are scheduled and never seem to be able to tell her she is too busy and I am not getting hours as promised. I will not be keeping this job because minimum wage was fine with me but not if I am going to be disrespected while I am at work and be littler by an immature 20 something year old. I was told that Jes does not like me for some reason and I do not know her never met her until that Monday that I had to work with her which was really my first day on the job. I respect myself too much to work in a place that is very dirty in every corner and were the employees you work with are very negative and disrespectful. I will not even shop in this store anymore and neither will the people whom I know who spoke to me about her attitude towards me. We all prefer the Dollar General in the next town over, it is cleaner and the people are more friendly. Something should be done about Tyrone's store, in fact Family Dollar just up the street is cleaner and the girls are very nice. I hope Corporate really listens and goes in and does something because I was told that the DM for this store doesn't really care either. God Bless!
