I was fired for not buying a store

I was an area supervisor for 13 years for subway, last may they said we can’t keep you if you want you can buy a store and be a store manager at another store or we have to let u go we will carry the loan. I politely said no; this store had a steady decline in sales and was $40,000 negative for the year, why would I buy that store!?Since this conversation last May they have closed that store.

After I declined the offer they said we can not afford you and we have to let you go, seriously is this legal??? I am having a hard time finding employment in the same field because they have ran my name through the mud inside the subway system. I don’t known what todo?

Hi Jason Burton - that sounds like a really terrible situation. I am sorry to hear about that. While this isn't the place to find legal advice, I would strongly advise contacting your local labor and telling them the situation. They are going to know the ins and outs of what you can do and what your next steps should be.

So this store was in the subway? With 13 years of area supervisor experience - have you considered branching out? There are tons of stores that need supervisors and store managers that you could be a great fit for. Additionally, many companies with that kind of reach could open up some other opportunities for you!
