A Sears employee near me has been ridiculed, sworn at, denied paid vacation time, denied breaks, and treated with utter disrespect. Is there a standard for owner behavior?
Can an employee deny requested vacation which is requested 3 or 4 months in advance? It would be well to check into the management style of the Sears owner in Yankton, SD. Costumers do not appreciate this owner's behavior. This behavior makes the store unfriendly and calls into question the ethics of the Sears Corporation.
I would suggest that you screen you franchise owners more carefully and regularly check on their ethics. In this case, review the owner's financial stability, crude behavior, possible illegal actions concerning staff and look into an owner who follows the law.
