I am a graduate of Millersville University with a degree in English with a minor in Journalism. I have a disability where a chunk of my cerebellum is missing, and I have also had a craniotomy.
In 2004, I had an AVM rupture in my cerebellum that caused me to have many brain surgeries as well as wake up quadriplegic; which in turn made me fight for the ability to walk, talk, and speak again. I faced a number of events at Gabes in Lancaster and in Exton.
I worked for the company in Lancaster starting on April 9, 2018 as a fashion coordinator. Two days after I began my training in Lancaster I was coaxed into quitting by the Customer Experience Ambassador of Lancaster. After she expressed to the General Manager of Lancaster about me possibly quitting, she then told me that I needed to notify them of when I quit to avoid facing any repercussions. I had never said that I wanted to quit or even implied that; I was ecstatic that I finally had a full time job.
A week after I was employed, my boss sent me to help set-up the Exton store. When I had arrived there, the manager did not know how long I was staying, what hours I was working, or how long I was employed by the company.
The second week at the Exton store, I felt very much taken advantage of. The General Manager of Exton, and Merchandising Manager of Exton, decided to put me to work in the warehouse processing shoes and clothes all day, which was hazardous to my health, but I just did as I was told. The warehouse was an unsafe environment for me, as there were boxes and trash thrown all over the floor. One instance caused me to slip and strain a muscle in my leg.
Short Story: They lie, manipulate you into performing every job other than your own, overwork you, claim that their product is worth more than you, and mistreat their employees.
Better communication to allow task to be completed correctly the first time.
