I have heard so much crap about Walmart, mostly from women and mostly about wages. This is retail. You don’t get paid like a doctor, lawyer or Indian chief. It is not Walmart’s problem to give you a wage you can support your family on. Like teachers you picked your job so don’t complain about the wages. I have worked several low paying jobs and moved on to higher paying jobs.
If it is so bad why are you working there?
Here’s what I know. Almost every store I have been in the manager is a woman. It looks to me like most of the management is women as well as the workers. If you don’t believe me look at the display board with the managers on it. Look at the workers, most are women. I would guess 80% are women maybe more.
A couple years ago I worked for a company called Teletech. It is a work from home company. They had a line called We Hear You for confidential complaints about the company etc. I called because I thought I was being held back by women. I told them I thought the women numbered about 90% and that doesn’t happen by accident. When they answered me they said it was 80% and blah blah blah blah blah. Then they blew me off. It wasn’t long before Teletech relocated what we were doing to the Philippines call center. I don’t know if this was from my complaint and they were worried about a lawsuit or what.
Walmart and my son, a male worker.
Anyway back to Walmart and my son. A few years ago he was in a car accident and almost died. He came away with a Traumatic Brain Injury and a tremor in his left hand making it difficult to use. He has had trouble getting and keeping jobs because he has some trouble following directions and with his memory.
Well, his mother knew someone that worked at Walmart who told him to do an application and then he got an interview. When they hired him this woman said “you can thank your mother for this.” Not sure what she meant.
So he works there for over three months and was there every day and on time and never missed a day. He even worked for other people who wanted the day off. He started being harassed by this female assistant manager named Linda.
She was following him to the time clock.
She accused him of taking a set of keys that later turned up in another assistant mangers possession who had taken them on vacation.
She accused him of taking $200.00 apparently because this was his transaction. I knew she was lying because they have tons of security cameras and security people. Also the register is used and can be used by everyone in the store. They always had 3 or 4 workers working in electronics all the time (where my son worked) so anyone could and did use the same register including this Linda.
Lastly she accused him of using his cell phone while working. HE DIDN’T HAVE A CELL PHONE. What she saw was him with was a scanner they use to check inventory. Since then I have seen women in the Walmart stores as well as Sam’s Club on cell phones texting etc. There was even a woman pulling a pallet and texting at the same time in Sam’s.
This manager, Linda, calls him in and says he is still temporary, less than 90 days which he was not. He was past 90 days because he had started getting his store discount which is after 90 days. So this woman is a liar and maybe a thief if she took the $200.00. Then she fired him.
As far as management they had a male manager while my son was there and he was fired. A female manager was having sex with a worker and was fired and eventually they ended up with a female manager again.
