I just left this store in disappointment. I went there to make a few purchases and see what the store had on sale. I noticed that there were not many people in the store. However, every aisle that I went to, I heard over the loudspeaker "customer service needed in aisle..." It became obvious that someone was wat hubg ne on camera and assumed by my appearance that I was shoplifting. I became more upset when the store clerk came to one of the aisle pretending to arranged the shelf, until I mentioned out loud of what I had noticed. The clerk then left the aisle quickly without asking if I needed help. I left my items at the front and went to the other stores in the Plaza to spend my money. This was very disturbing for them to think that I wasn't competent to notice what was happening. I work in business management.
If a manager is going to make sure her employees are doing their jobs, she should first make sure she is doing hers. Writing employees up for things such as being late and missing deposits, when you did the same thing only worse is not correcting bad habits. That is fear-mongering because you were afraid they would get you in trouble so you got them all in trouble first. If you consider that good management, then good luck to you and your store. You will absolutely need it. Maybe you need to consider they didn't want to do their job for a manager who wasn't doing hers.
As the store manager of this location I have been with the company for over 8 years. I was brought in to replace an incompetent manager, retrain the staff, and bring things back up to company expectations. I did my best to be a fair but firm manager. Unfortunately, the former employees were set in their bad habits and refused to change. If making sure my employees were doing their jobs is considered bullying and haraasment, then I guess you could say I "bullied" and "haraased" them. What it really boils down to is the fact they didn't want to actually work for a manager who wanted them to do their job. Please feel free to stop by my store, I gaurentee you that I will be working my sales floor with a smile on my face and exceptional customer service.
