Wal-Mart Complaint - Over Worked Under Paid!
LANSING 2869, MICHIGAN -- I am a current employee of Wal Mart who is on the verge of a mental break down!I feel I am a great asset to this company but they will not stand behind me nore care about any of their employees. I am job coded as a cashier but rarely have a cashier shift and if am scheduled as a cashier 90% of the time I am used as a CSM (customer service manager) or service desk both are a higher pay grade than a cashier but I am only pad cashier pay. some days I do the jobs of all 3! Recently I had to take a family medical leave which was approved as my children were VERY ILL but they are still applying some of my missed days during this LOA as absences against me. I asked for a availability change and filed the proper paper work and gave it to the HR department who said it would be given to management for approval. It never did and I had to do the paper work again take it to the manager and still after the approval my schedule dose not match my availability.
Our store dose "pulls" on registers taking money and or switching out new bags of money this is done at the front checkouts and at all registers in the store CSM's perform this task we are supposed to take another associate with us for safety but we rarely are fully staffed and have long lines and cannot get someone to do this with us so it is often done alone the other night while doing this a manager seen me and told me this is not allowed and if any money came up missing he would make sure I was held accountable!
Come to find out this job is supposed to be done by a salaried member of management!!! It is also required you put in a request for time off at least 3 weeks before the requested day off I did this knowing we are planing a birthday party for my kids at a place where we had to make reservations and put a deposit down of 150.00 dollars invitations have been sent out and we have spent a great deal of money on this to find out my request has been rejected this was today I tried to get with management to see if this can be changed but they were in a meeting so I called after was home and told by my manager "I can't talk to you about this because you are not on the clock" but if I'm not scheduled to work and they need me they have no problem calling me while I'm not on the clock to see if I can come in???
I have a family I have bills I need some type of income and have been looking for another job but nothing has come up yet if you are smart you will not apply to work for this company not just the store I'm employed at but any Wal Mart I am one of many around the world who are having issues within the facilities they don't care about any of their employees !!!!
