Please spread this all over the internet…no one should have to go through the bullshit I went through tonight.
I was hired on October 16 for the new Lane Bryant opening in Lansing, Michigan. My manager promised me on that day that she would get back to me on the following week about scheduling training. Tonight, she sends me a text message and thanks me for my interest, but she has everyone she needs.
WHO THE HELL HIRES SOMEONE AND THEN CHANGES THEIR MIND AFTER LEAVING THEM HANGING FOR TWO WEEKS?!
Here’s a hint: if you’re not going to hire someone, DON’T PROMISE THEM TRAINING! (Promising someone training is a verbal contract stating you’ve hired them!) I know verbal contracts are the most easily broken, but this is FUCKING INSANE! Never in nearly a DECADE in the workplace have I ever, EVER been fired before training. FUCKING RIDICULOUS!
Thanks to that lying bitch, I have lost TWO WEEKS of searching for a new job and am more broke than ever. I was looking forward to not only earning a paycheck from LB, but SPENDING IT there. Not going to happen now. I won’t shop anywhere that hires people who renege on their contracts!
Oh, and one last thank you goes out to Heidi personally: I’ll give ’em your number when they call me asking why I haven’t paid my bills. Toodles!
