I am presently an ex-employee of AutoZone. I have been in the automotive service/parts field for about 30 years.
I was working for NAPA for about 16 years, before being swayed/recruited to AutoZone. I was with AZ for 6 yrs., during this time I have had problems with my legs. Sometimes causing me time off work. Well appartently someone didn't like that, because while being off on a FMLA my demise was plotted.
I had gone back to work on limitations, but still on FMLA. After being back to work for 6 1/2 days, our DM came into the store and terminated me for an attendance problem. I tried to convince them it wasn't right, but to no avail. US DEPT.
OF LABOR said what they did was wrong. The state I live in is an "AT WILL" state, so AZ got by with terminating. I think my age is a deciding factor also. How many of you like walking into an AZ and getting ahold of a counterperson with little or no experience.
Isn't a nice experience, is it?
Put me out to pasture!
What a way to do it! NO INCOME, NO BENEFITS!
