Wal-Mart Informative - Tired of Walmart?
SOMEWHERE, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Are you tired of the most ruthless company in the world? Feel like you need to tell someone about it? Well why not go right to the top.....yep that's right....To Walmart's very own President and CEO...Mr. Michael Duke....(Michael.Duke@walmart.com)
Have you been treated rudely by an associate at a walmart store or sam's club? Let me tell you one thing...don't take it out on them...they don't get paid enough for half of the work they do. Believe me , I know. I work third shift, making $7.75 an hour. Wait....hold up, before you start "that seems reasonable," think about it this way: Somtimes we can get up to 4000 pcs of freight a night, some pallets are taller than the tallest guy in the store (6'4"), certain departments get at least 10 pallets on those nights. Nope, not quite done, we are supposed to do at least one of those pallets an hour, 10 minutes per box, plus when we're done with our department we are supposed to go help others with theirs. So, not only are we doing our work but also several others as well. Now $7.75 doesn't seem that reasonable. Now what's even worse is this; in the supercenters the dry goods grocery side of the store is seperate from the general merchandise side, seperate trucks each night...on average each night they get anywhere from 700 to 1500 pcs and get paid at least $2.00 more. That calculates out to their freight is equal to ONE department on the GM side. NOT COMPLETELY FAIR!!!! I am asking that anyone and everyone that reads this boycotts walmart stores, Inc. completely. They are a multi-billion dollar company they can afford to pay and treat their employees better!!!! There are many employees that feel the same way I do, I have read some of their complaints on this site, the people I work with (soon to be former co-workers) feel like I do but for some reason I am the only person there that has the power to speak my mind.
