Wal-Mart Complaint - employee grievance Walmart store #2112
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA -- I am a current employee using someone else's e-mail address as I want to state my anger. I have been working for them for two years and this last year has been hell. I am speaking also about other fellow employees that feel the same as I do. I was trying to locate corporate office to let them know but unable to locate that e-mail address. Not only does does this store carry favoritism towards certain employees, but they treat others with no regards. When I started it was a wonderful place to work. Since then they have changed store managers(A HORRIBLE MISTAKE)that is very unfair. I am suppose to be full time but I am getting less than full time hours. I also get 25 cents an hr more than when I first started. This last week I was scheduled for 30 hrs. I was then called this Friday morn. to not come in to work until 3 hrs later as I would be over my hrs. NOT TRUE-I wound up with under 30 hrs (28 to be exact) and this coming week they have cut me to 25 hrs. Can anyone making under $8/hr live on this? I am trying to go to school so that I can survive at a job that will provide me to live, I have not been able to get health insurance do to the policies that the store has. I have given my all to the store and was once proud of working for Walmart-NOT ANY LONGER! I am putting in my resignation today because I can't handle it anymore. There are many other employees that feel the same, but have no where to turn. I can only do this because there is someone I can live with for a few days. I can always get a job housecleaning for more money than Walmart pays. I am so angry I will never have any regards for Walmart anymore. Those other employees that I have heard that sued Walmart for their treatment I truly understand why. We work like dogs, get treated like dogs, get 10% discount on products we buy which puts our hard earned money back in Walmarts pockets. What Walmart does to their employees is diffently unamerican. The management knows exactly how I feel and so do the employees, who are behind me all the way. The only ones that aren't are management who must be brainwashed or are getting large paychecks that us little ones see nothing of. I was told not all Walmart locations are this bad! But I would like to hear from ONE happy employee!
Thank you for listening to me and I hope their is someone in higher ups, that really care about their employees. This is not the way SAM WALTON would like to see his stores become. What happened to just caring about employees? All I hear is lets make a profit, no matter who it hurts or how hard the employees work! I hope there is someone somewhere that believes in humanity, God, and giving employees back their dignity. No wonder there is some much stolen merchandise, which I'm guessing alot is from employees who are angry. Maybe someday I can get over this anger, but now I feel hurt, loss of self respect and treated as a nobody!
