I was hired to be the Supervisor of the IN STORE MARKETERS for 7 Sears stores in the Seattle area. My position was to hire, train, do the paperwork, payroll, keep figures and moral up. My supervisor had a breakdown after two weeks and then I did not have anyone to train me so I relied on the Human Resource Department in Tampa Florida....Big mistake! The store management hates the In Store Marketers...even tho we are Sears Holding Company employes and are to use their facilities.
The second week on the job I was interviewing a prospective marketeer when the manager came into the office I had permission to use and said he was going to kick our ass out of the office...earlier he said we could stay till 2:00pm...it was 1:30. My interviewee took offence to being spoken to like that and said so. The manager tried to remove him by putting his hands on him and dragging him out. I phoned HR....Blah, blah, blah...nothing much happened...
In another store the Assistant told me I was not allowed to go anywhere where there was a blue post.
