I called tonight to get the ball rolling. ETL-HR wasn't available but the STL was so I explained the situation to her. I told her to call me back when she decided what to do.
She calls back an hour later and she definitely wants to sit down with the team member who made the threat, even though they are seasonal and are not going to be hired on. I suppose it's all in their hands now, if you guys don't see any more posts from me you'll know what happened
Oh sh**. If that is what she is planning that is even worse. This would probably piss him off to the extreme for two reasons - 1. He is now in trouble. 2. You ratted him out. That is the cardinal sin of guys like this, and if he is a gang member or any kind of thug they normally will either seriously fu** up a snitch, or kill them. Remember your STL is a naive person pulling in 100K a year. She has zero association with guys like this in her own life, and probably has no idea what they are capable of or the rules they live by. Her plan is basically like bringing a crip and a blood in a room for a meeting. It is blood bath waiting to happen.
Yeah, we are BOTH scheduled to close tomorrow evening, and the thought of me not coming in for my own safety would never occur to the STL. I'm a little torn at this point, but this guy is sketchy as all hell, I've always thought that about him.
If I call out, I will get coached, there is no one to cover my shift. The ETL's better have my back..
edit: screw this, I'm calling her first thing in the morning, she will NOT pull him into the office to lecture him on threatening me and THEN make us work together the entire night. I keep going over scenarios in my head and they all end with me getting shanked.
Document events & talk to your stl without delay. Make sure they understand the seriousness of the situation. Your mgt maybe building a case against that tm without your knowledge.I don't know what the full contents of this thread are (the beginning message simply says "problem resolved"), but I have also been having troubles with a TM and the upper-echolen staff (ETL-HR, the integrity hotline, etc.) have been useless. This guy has threatened me multiple times and has generally acted in a unprofessional manner towards me and others, and their only remedy is to "talk to him". The last time he threatened me, I got written up as well for defending myself. Maybe your STL and ETLs are more useful and responsive than mine are, and forget about corporate, all they do is record it and kick it back down to HR.
