    Default Speedway Clerk Gets Robbed, I.D.'s Suspect, Then Gets Fired

    By myFOXDetroit.com Staff

    CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- When Speedway gas station employee Jamie Schram had a gun pointed in her face, she did what she was supposed to do. She handed over the cash and prayed the guy wouldn't pull the trigger.

    But the next day, she went out of her way to make sure that robber was caught. The cops thanked her, but her boss fired her. Why? Fox 2's Brad Edwards shows us.

    generally speaking, the folks that do graveyards at these types of gigs know the deal. They drop their cash. It's just part of the deal. Hell, years ago I worked a register and it was beaten into my brain: drop your cash. Things get hectic, it's impractical to drop cash in the middle of dealing with a line of customers so you wait for the first break you can to drop the wad.

    I don't doubt that she was in the process of doing her drop when the guy walked up.

    But hey, zero tolerance.

    Just like in schools, zero tolerance in business is just a way to deal with having retards in charge.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    just listening to her account of the robbery, it's clear that she messed up. There was no one else in the place when the robber came in so there was opportunity to drop cash. I worked in a convenience store for 6 years and if we ever got robbed of $300 in cash I'd expect to be fired.

    you've got to make sure that the policy is followed and any deviation from it is corrected for the safety of all the other employees.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I see what you're trying to say but she has kids to feed and in this climate now we have to remember that people are busting their asses trying to live a life. Money can be replaced. And those children deserve to eat.

    I'm completely against the company's decision on this one.

    i would make the argument that she knows that she has kids to feed and in this climate should know to not have that much cash in the register. It does suck though.

    so now that she's cash strapped and has children to feed, maybe she should just knock off the gas station

    Seriously though, I think it sucks. People need to show some compassion when it comes to stuff like this

    Now they can hire someone else who's out there looking for ways to feed their kids and will adhere to policy.
