Not resolved
12 comments

In late March 2015, I was shopping at the Bi Lo Grocery at Hudson Corners in Taylors SC., when I overheard an employee in the meat section and a customer having a very "lively discussion" about how they should assassinate president Obama ("we should pop the president"). I approached the customer and the employee and explained how inappropriate that conversation was in public in front of customers.

I proceeded to talk to the manager and he explained that he would handle the situation. I called the Bi Lo corp office to express my concerns and they explained to me they would get back to me with a resolution. I'm still waiting on this resolution!!!

I will not be shopping at a store that allows this type of employee and this behavior. BTW-this guy still works at the store!!

This person wrote the review because of poor customer service of staff from BILO. Reviewer claimed that he or she wants BILO to offer any options to resolve the issue.

The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.

We collected other reviews about products and/or services offered by BILO for you to read. This information may help you with your purchase decision.

Politics should not be discussed at the workplace. The complainant is correct. No need for your belligerence.

Politics should be kept out of the workplace. I can't discuss politics with my co-workers while I'm working. It's a common sense rule that most companies have.

How is disliking Obama a racist thing? I wish I had been that customer you approached, I would ripped you a new *** and embarrassed you so bad, you would never show your face in public again. Get stuffed, you nasty old busybody!

Employees should never discuss politics (as well as religion) while at work. Most workplaces have this rule.

Mine does. The Bi-Lo employee's behavior was inappropriate. And why did you mention racism? The complainant made no mention of it.

Racism isn't the issue.

It's that politics should be kept out of the workplace. There's no need for your nastiness.

Correction:. The complaint did mention racism. But since so much of the hatred for Obama was rooted in racism, although one can't assume from the information given that in this particular case it was, it's yet another good reason that employers should restrict their employees from discussing politics at work.

First, Hudson Corners is in Greer, not Taylors. It is located at the southwest corner of Old Spartanburg Road and Hudson Road.

Second, Bi-Lo does not have a store at Hudson Corners.

It did have a store, Food$mart #393, from 2001 to 2005, which was previously Harris Teeter. Bi-Lo has a store, store 5274, at Brushy Creek Crossing, 2460 Hudson Road, Greer, South Carolina 29650-2923.

Just because its not politically correct everyone has right to vent and freedom of speech regardless of anyones approval. Just as you had freedom to complain about it

The First Amendment only protects freedom of speech from intrusion from the government. Employers have the right to restrict their employees speech while employees are working.
