A coworker of mine once told me that one of the former assistant managers barred her from leaving the office until she agreed to sign a write-up. Why she never reported it to corporate (or for that matter, called the goddamn police on his ass) is beyond me, though I suspect part of it might have been because he was the darling of the district manager, always kissing her ass and doing whatever it took to make himself look good. Would have been hard to convince her and possibly those above her that he was anything but stellar.
Aside from this incident, he was often discourteous to the staff and very obviously more interested in moving up the ladder than helping out with the team. Not to mention he was a complete idiot - he picked up some snakes he found outside so he could ask me if they were ours. I emphasize: he picked up snakes in his bare hands WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT KIND THEY WERE. That violates common sense with a rusty spoon! He's thankfully at another store now, so I don't have to worry about him. If he ever comes back, I'm quitting, and I'll state very clearly that it's because I don't trust him.
