26. Like a lot of places, it's a mixture of a little of both
They do have some shitty management at some stores, they eventually get caught and get fired. Sometimes that takes a while, sometimes it doesn't. The one I work at, doesn't take long for a manager to be told to move on if they don't do thier job. Not every store is like that.

Take for example the store manager that hired the company to clean floors that just happend to employ illegals, that was irresponsible on his part according to our management, which said the proper thing to do is to check that place out before they hire someone outside to do a job. That didn't happen in this case and I think that manager was let go due to this.

Now I have witnessed some people I work with purposely start trouble to get people in trouble and or fired. That includes working and not taking thier 15 minute breaks every 2 hours, and 1 hour lunch every 4 hours. Then they turn around and try to say that they were denied, when in all honesty they were making the decision not to follow thru with thier break. I worked with someone like that. Finally when they started taking breaks, they took them for a.....well lets just say they disappeared from where tehy were supposed to be for hours on end. And that person was fired.

I would have to say that problems trickle down from the top, if you have bad leadership, then of course your going to have problems.
