Manipulated New Employees

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Orillia, ON (Canada)

ProsBrought the possibility of employment to a small town with little job availability
New store location

ConsHired staff to fill new location in Ontario
Misled employees (60 of the 75) to believe they where permanent staff
Hired staff (sales associates) to build shelving and display merchandise
Gave no notice of termination to the 80% that were
Continually demoralized and insulted staff that ask questions
Gave no copies and denied requests for paperwork being signed by the new employees
Half hour orientations that are filled with great information, but with no way of accessing the information after the fact

Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront with employees and explain they are only needed prior to a new store opening
Send new employees home with copies of the paperwork they sign
The detail that is involved in planing how a new store is created is wonderful, but falls apart when management treat staff questions as a sign of "stupidity" (a word often used as a response)
Don't promote Michael's Cares, when store managers are clearly not on board

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
