They do promote/source almost exclusively from within - and have been rapidly expanding - I want to say something like 20 stores/month... I started as a driver, with zero knowledge of how cars and the repair stuff really works, four years ago, part-time. I'm an assistant manager now. Thanks to the 'rona reaction, we're severely understaffed. Right now, I'm trying to turn a store around regarding customer service, and that's hard, because there are some folks who discovered that telling the customer "no" is the easiest way to slide through the day. So... Trying to build an actual team.

As a test, ask them if they will buy back your vacation since you're too understaffed to take any days off.  If they are honest, they should be happy to do that. 

I don't know if any of this is actionable through the state Dept of Labor, especially since you're in management, but it will let you know what kind of people you are dealing with.

Good luck.

^^^I have been blessed with good health all my life and consequently take very little in the way of sick leave.  As with most healthcare systems nowadays, a few years back, my employer went to paid time off such that you use your hours for vacation or sick leave as you see fit and any unused hours were paid off at the time of separating from employment.  They now have a cap in the number of unused PTO hours that are paid off.  Some employees with long service were cashing in hundreds of hours and some of the smaller facilities were running into cash flow issues.

Every large corporation I ever worked for had some kind of vacation clause to buy back vacation if for business needs you couldn't take it. Vacation time is an agreed upon component of your compensation package. If your company denies your vacation without compensation they are essentially stealing X numbers of days pay from you.
Dig into your corporate policies and look into the vacation issue.
Do you really want to work for a company that will routinely *expletive deleted*ck over their employees over vacation? If they will do that they will find ever more profitable ways to *expletive deleted*ck you.
Might also look into your states labor laws, it may be an actionable offense in your state.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

^^^The stated rationale for capping either the number of unused PTO hours paid off, or capping accumulation at a certain number of hours is to encourage the employee to use PTO.  Sort of a 'use it or lose it' philosophy.  That would be different than not being able to use PTO due to business demands, and I think someone should not be penalized for that.

The employer should be penalized for not having enough people; and it's really not that much of a penalty having to buy back the unusable PTO.  Its cheaper than paying the overhead costs on another employee.  Versus a severe penalty (lost wages) pushed down to the employee for no fault of his own.

I would simply make sure you request vacation multiple times during the year and force them to reject it.  Then you have some proof in your pocket.

Quote
No. 3: Meat is a symbol of white-male privilege

According to Carol Adams, a feminist-vegan advocate and author of the book The Sexual Politics of Meat, the myth that you need meat for strength is “traceable to this intersection of colonialism, white supremacy, and masculinity.”

Historically, Adams says red meat was a luxury reserved for aristocrats, who, at the turn of the 19th century, were largely male and white. The bourgeois didn’t hunt or raise the cattle they ate; servants and peasants did all the physical work, though they themselves couldn’t afford to eat meat on a regular basis.

Regardless, Europeans upheld the concept that meat equals strength, masculinity, and ultimately, superiority. Adams notes that the English bragged about how they were able to colonize India because their soldiers ate red meat unlike the native men. She also mentions that in World War II, the US and UK rationed meat at home so that soldiers on the front lines would have more fuel for the fight. The governments also launched a victory-garden initiative using propaganda that featured only women planting and harvesting vegetables.

People think beef is manly, and that’s a big problem

Everyone knows only northern European men ever thought eating meat was a good idea. Hunting game animals for meat was unknown to Africans. Or the American or Australian aborigines. Or Chinamen.  =)

Oh, I just realized why the wet markets are no longer to blame for Covid. The Chinese are all vegetarians, obviously.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

yoga and everything

Quote
The book explores the existence of white supremacy and cultural appropriation in American yoga. “I would venture to say that everything in our collective society is rooted in white supremacy. I am sure there are many people who would disagree with that, and honestly I don’t care because I believe that and I know it’s the case,” she says.

“I think that we see it show up in a lot of different ways. In the same way it’s everywhere else and it has polluted everything else, it’s polluted yoga. It’s very much a part of how yoga has spread in America. The popularity of yoga really came down to wealthy white people wanting to learn and explore in a very specific way, and that’s why yoga has been so white for so long in America.”

Detailing the cultural appropriation in yoga, Stanley says it’s “rampant because we are still living in the legacy of colonization.”

Reporting a rape.

Quote
A lawyer today accused Oxfam of suggesting reporting rape is 'contemptible' after a training document said 'privileged white women' were supporting the 'root causes of sexual violence' for wanting offenders jailed because it disproportionately affects minorities.

The charity, which has been hit by a slew of sex scandals including claims that employees used teenage prostitutes in Haiti, compiled the PowerPoint presentation through its LGBT network after the group complained to bosses that the debate about women's rights was part of a 'patriarchal and white supremacist narrative'. 

Accompanied by a cartoon of a crying white woman, the PowerPoint claims that mainstream feminism supports 'the root causes of sexual violence' by painting white women as 'victims' and that this in turn justifies excessive punishment for 'black and other marginalised people'.

Just like when it was no longer enough to just tolerate the Bolsheviks and Nazis, but instead you had to be an active supporter or it was to the camps with you.
