I’ve been with Goodyear for a number of years. Never had a problem until recently when I had an injury. Reported it to my supervisor who gave me the impression he didn’t believe me. He just wanted me to ‘s--- it up’ by taking some OTC medicine to lessen the pain I was in.
He basically thought I was lying about getting injured just to get time off. I wasn’t even trying for workman’s comp. or anything, just wanted him aware that I had hurt myself.
This incident shows me how much my manager cared about the safety and well being of his employees which is apparently - NOT A LOT!
