i once got someone fired

December 1, 2013 at 2:13 PM
I was a manager for a retail store that bought and sold gently used clothes. A customer was selling us her clothes and as I was checking her clothes over, we were talking. She said she worked at this store called The Buckle. I said, ' I like that store but I hate that you can't just go in there and look around without an employee following you. I just want to look at what you have, you know?' She told me that she hates people like me, what is the point of doing that, it waste their time because they get paid commission and people like me are a waste of their time. That shed rather people like me stay the hell out of her store.
Later, I started thinking, wow....if one of my employees ever said that to someone, after telling them where they work, I'd be pissed. That she was painting The Buckle and their employees in a bad light.
So I called the store, there was only one in my area, asked for the manager and told her what happen. I said, I'm coming to you as one manager to another. You just might want to talk to your employees about how they represent your store and if they want to bad mouth customers then they shouldn't say where they work.
The manager was mad and embarrassed for her employees behavior and thanked me for telling her. She got fired and I know because she came into my work, bitching and yelling at me over it. I laughed in her face.

    So would you have complained to her manager for saying those things? For saying how much she hates people like yourself, who look through the store without always buying?

    There are at least 3 active posts right now about someone getting someone fired.  Just thought I'd mention it.

    No, There is no proof of what they said, I'm not going to take the word of some random person calling me out of the blue.

    What a dumbass. How can you know if you want to buy anything unless you look around? And if I feel stressed out by having someone up my ass while I'm looking around I'm not going to buy anything.

    Actually the conversation was recorded by our security camera. The other manager didn't ask to see it but it was there if she had wanted too

     I'd not have called and said anything. I would not have cared at all. We've all bitched about customers, or in my case parents :p, in our line of work.

    I doubt it. There are laws that protect free speech. Employees cannot be fired for what they do and say off the clock, especially since it can't be proven. Oh, and BTW, the type of store that you say that you work in is called a consignment store. My family owned one at one time.
