Wal-Mart Complaint - Being A Walmart Associate
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA -- I have worked for Walmart going on 5 years now. When I first started, Walmart was fun and management cared about the associates. Now it's awful. The ones that bust there butt everyday, rarely call in,the ones they can always depend on get harassed constantly. While the ones that come to work when it fits there busy schedule, do absolutely nothing when they do come get away with everything. Management don't care so how can they expect the associates too. Sam Walton is doing back flips in his grave. Walmart is no where close to what Sam Walton implemented in the very beginning. They have taken away all of the incentives we use to get: bonuses, good job buttons and now they are cutting peoples hours. Walmart is the only company I have every heard of when you switch positions with in the company they take money away from. The pay scale Walmart has is 1-7, 1 being the lowest and 7 being the highest. If I'm a 3 and going to a 6 you would think you'd get a raise right? Wrong not at Walmart they want to take 30 cents away. Is that even legal?
I am very disappointed as to what Walmart has become in the past few years and I know many others are too. All the things you hear about Walmart being a great place to work is bogus. You only find out the entire truth once you've worked there awhile.
