Las Vegas, NV |

This was a new job had only been employed 6 weeks, I was the only female in a warehouse environment. Co-work/Trainer from the beginning was noticeably disturbedwith my employment in his deportment. I attempted to ignore it try to learn, fit in and become apart of this team. Before too long this man began making comments in regards to my strength , judging my performance abilities with name calling and intimidation. I finally asked him to stop and reported the situtation and then all on the same day I quit.
