All Praises are due to ALLAH.
Good afternoon, are you having a nice day so far? Well, I hope you are.
A few days ago, I received a “separation of employment” letter from SAKS, because according to information the Human Resources department received, I was absent for scheduled days at SAKS.
So, where was I last month? Straightening out that court mistake. I explained this situation on the company’s HBCalertline website. This is a website where incidents and information is reported directly to upper management and HR.
And someone called the store on my behalf and told one of the workers there, that I was straightening out a legal matter.
So then, I was thinking; what is the conflict here? I have been with this company for a few years and this is a very odd reception to this situation.
I was thinking:
I like this company. I am the ideal associate.
Guess who initially hired me at SAKS? I was hired by a Gimbel. A descendant of one of the owners. I worked at the Sawgrass location with him.
Well, I thought; GOD is wise. GOD knows best. This is Best.
I found out that HBC/SAKS has been sold.
This company was sold January 6, 2020. It is now a different company. Now, it is a private company. The company’s culture has already changed drastically.
And, this company is headed in that direction, you can probably guess where. Or maybe not.
And so, I believe, it’s time to move on. I still have my Royal roots and I still like the Gimbels. One in particular. He’s so cute.
As I have mentioned:
I’m launching my own label soon. Athletic-Leisure. Time for expansion.
Human Resources did not sign the letter. It was sign by another person; Evelyn Garcia, I found Evelyn to be frequently dishonest on numerous occasions. In the past, I had to report violations of company policy (and this was addressed).
Previous to this selling, the HR dept. was responsible for terminating employment.
Or anyone was free to quit/terminate their employment. The termination option was not given to store staff, for good reason.
Do you want to read the letter?
It’s not truthful. Obviously, I was not available to be there on those dates, last month. But, I’ll let you see it, anyway. First, I have to make sure there are no legal restrictions. (We don’t like to make disparaging comments about former companies we work with.)
However, it is my letter, so I can share it publicly.
I applied for unemployment payments, a few days ago.
I did excellent work there at HBC/SAKS. You know, I’m a Fashion maven.
This song makes me want a scooter. I had a scooter when I was a teenager, before I was old enough to drive.
I decided to enroll in a short Accounting training program. 1 year, this program is offered at Atlantic-Tech.
8:30 This morning, I completed the on campus orientation. Classes will start in a few months.
I think, learning accounting will be useful.
I will take the basic skills test in a couple of weeks.
