Wow, this company is absolutely HORRIBLE!!
I started working here 2 weeks ago, at the end of my first week on Saturday April 10th my 27 year old son suddenly passed away. Obviously I was completely destroyed, and devastated. On Sunday April 11th I called my supervisor Joe and told him about my son, he told me to do whatever I need to and to not worry about anything at the shop. This company does offer bereavement days, 5 days for direct family members. So I took this past week off, to deal with everything. My son lived up in Michigan, so that made things even harder to get set up and scheduled. Yesterday, which was Friday April 16th I called the shop manager Tom and left a voice mail saying that I will be in on Monday, and would need next Friday because that is the soonest we could schedule my sons funeral service because Covid 19 has everything all backed up. Today, April 17th the Vice President Doug called me and said that I AM NOT A GOOD fit for their company, and he fired me.
I am beside myself over this, so I'm not a good fit because my 27 year old son passed away and I had to take care of his autopsy, funeral, and work stuff. It's not like we planned this, and I am definitely not lying about it.
What kind of company would fire someone like this, what kind of man would ever do such a thing? When I was hired Doug bragged on and on about this being a FAMILY company. That was a big lie!! This place is disgusting, and he has absolutely no decency at all. I would never expect this type of treatment from an employer.
And for the record if you support the way this company acts you are no better. Hopefully none of those at this company ever have to bury their child. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
