Customer Question
Hello, I was a assistant...
Hello, I was a assistant manager for Staples but I was recently terminated for violation of company policy which lead to a loss. Around November I violated the policy to which I was fired for by not counting the safe during opening. Comes around a month later we get a notice from our bank that a coin order payback deposit never got paid back. And because the safe was over around $700 the night before when I closed safe was even which would have meant that that 700 was used for the coin order payback but unfortantly never reached the bank so I was fired for violation of policy which lead to a loss
