Rural King Review

Beware of Rural King

I was an employee of Rural King store #73 for a very brief time unfortunately, I enjoyed working there everyone was very nice, my co-workers and of course the customers. I myself had been a long time customer so I thought why not work here. I was hired pretty much right away and worked a little over a month before things went south. On 8/8/18 I had to call off due to a family emergency (my dad took a heart attack the day before and was having surgery), dad was released from the hospital the following Friday 8/10/18 I worked the day after his surgery that Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately on Sunday 8/12/18 dad had a massive heart attack and was life flighted to a Westmoreland hospital, I left mid-shift (on my lunch break) after finding this out and notifying the manager on duty Chris. I was off 8/13/18 when dad was again life flighted out to a Pittsburgh hospital I stayed with him the whole time surgery was once again scheduled for 8/14/18 after getting him stable. His surgery was scheduled for 8:30 that morning I had to work at 3:30 and since it was only to be a 2 hour operation I had plenty of time to be at work, unfortunately there were many complications and he never got out of surgery until almost 3pm leaving me no choice but to have to call off once again, I didn”t have to work again until 8/16/18 when I clocked in I was called to the office and told that due to the call offs and on one day my til was short $5 and over $8 on another I was being terminated, Seriously your telling me that my dads health is not considered an excusable call off?? Anyway I”m glad I found this out now before I worked there any longer because if this is the way this company treats their employees than I don”t want to be a part of it now or ever my dads going to soon be 71 I don”t know how much more time I”ll have with him especially with his failing health and heart being so bad so I”ll never regret my decisions in being there when he woke up from both his surgeries instead of being at work. I”m not one to just call off work for no reason so when I do know that it”s usually a very good one I”ve went to work in the past very sick, but still went. I just wanted everyone to know what kind of company Rural King really is and I hope that Mr Alex Melvin sees this and makes some changes in the policies for other employees there in the future, Thank you Missy Showman aka Melissa Showman employee #52440
