@Dell79:  +1! The store my SO works at had an angry customer come in and start smashing things, cursing at everyone, and making a huge scene that ended in his arrest. One of SO’s coworkers recorded it on his phone, uploaded it to YouTube, and the video is now being used as evidence in the trial.

So you just got this job less than two weeks ago (according to your other thread) and this was your last job…

I was NOT allowed breaks, lunch breaks or bathroom breaks, nothing. I didn’t get paid over time nor Holiday pay. And They normally scheduled me to work 16 hours shifts, with absolutely no rest in between, straight through. The clients sexually harassed me every single day. This one guy came in last week and felt like he “deserved” to see my brests, so he leaned over the counter and pulled my shirt ALL the way down, exposing my breasts to at least 20 people, ON CAMERA. My boss didn’t do anything about it. And sadly that’s not the worst thing that’s happened to me since I worked there. The little money I made didn’t seem worth all the grief I was put through, especially because most of the money went towards gas to get there anyways. I came home crying everyday, I felt like I was going to get fired at any second for things that didn’t even relate to my job but old feats. The managers acted in a very “Ha-HA- we can treat you like sh*t and there’s nothing you can do about it!” sort of way. I felt defeated.

My Fiance, however, was skeptical. He had a hard time believing that such a Hostile workplace could exist (even though the turnover rate was over 67 people in 3 months!!), so he decided to come in to see for himself. He happened to walk in on my manager screaming at me in front of clients, calling me a “Dumbf*ck” and a “stupid c*nt”. After the shock faded, my Fiance slammed him against the counter and threatened him, and told him I quit. Then my Fiance grabbed my hand and left. He apologized the entire way home saying he was angry at himself for not believing I had to deal with this everyday. Even though I was now unemployed, I was relieved.

Honestly, Im having a realy hard time believing this. Looking at your other posts, it looks like you have an unbelievable amount of drama in your life. Things just don’t add up. 

If you are serious, I still don’t understand. Why don’t you just quit? Your only 21, and you have only been there a few weeks. If things are as bad as you say they are, you must know that this is completely messed up and you need to get out?

Oh my gosh! It’s bad enough that your catty coworkers are doing that but for management to chime in is reprehensible. As everyone else has said report it to HR and don’t let it go. They’ve probably done this to others. *hugs*

Damn, the harrasment just follows you everywhere doesn’t it?  That really sucks.  Find out who you can report this to (someone who will take it seriously) and do it.  Then quit.  Your fiance is a head honcho at ths sister corporation, correct?  Maybe he can pull some strings to finally land you a job where you won’t be humiliated on a regular basis.

yeah, you sure have a dramatic life. Report it to HR. But I have a hard time believing this would happen at any legitimate workplace.

If this is happening, document EVERYTHING just like you did with your other job, and bring it to HR (corporate HR if possible). If HR doesn’t care, feel free to contact an attorney. If you have proper documentation, I know lots of labor attorneys who would love to be all over this.

Also, where the eff do you work and where the eff do you live that you’re treated this way?

Document the shit about what’s going on in a calendar with the instances. Go to HR. This is wrong on so many levels. If HR does nothing get yourself a lawyer and find out what your rights are.

OP, I’ve noticed that all the threads you’ve started have at least one word capitalized in the title (indicating the ensuing drama) and mostly have a common theme of you getting “bashed” by other women, etc.  I’ve known way too many people who somehow just get involved in drama in all facets of their lives.  I think if this is the case for you, you shouldn’t be posting about these things looking for people’s advice if you are inflating the issues.  The trouble you claim you are having at your new job seems insane, and I have a hard time believing that that many adults would be so outlandishly immature and disrespectful to you.  If you are, in fact, telling the whole truth, you need to get out of there and file a serious complaint ASAP.

@GoldenBeauty2202012:  I’m sorry people don’t believe you, it’s SO outrageous that people could be so awful!!  Call HR, immediately.  File a report.  In fact, I believe some of what they’re saying and doing could be handled with a regular police report of harrassment, it’s disgusting and should not be tolerated under any circumstances.
