As part of Walmart's 'quest' to help people live better for less money, they short-staff, skimp on training to get warm bodies out there on the floor,
have done away with people who focus on each department so that they can actually answer questions and help customers, in favor of employees that just
work store-wide and know little about any of the departments period. We're constantly stuck in the photo lab and we have no idea how to do much of
anything there. There's no training and no manuals.
Short-staffed employees are expected to put out the same amount of work as a larger staff would and are treated very poorly if they can't live up to
the expected level. You're given tasks to do, but are also responsible for keeping up with a myriad of other things that come up and anything else a
manager decides to toss at you at the same time. If you can't get your original task done because of everything else on your plate, it's a failure on
your part. Not the managers who never communicate with each other and give conflicting jobs. It's your fault. You're lazy, slow and unproductive.
Morale where I work is incredibly low to the point where employees that have worked there 13+ years are fed up and tired of the way things are going.
We're expected to push that awful WM Mastercard hardcore to the point where our small community is sick of hearing about it. This even includes the
self-checkout. You can't even use the kiosks without someone coming up trying to bully you into signing up for it. Think of telemarketers and their
refusal to take no for an answer. Two have been fired for not pushing the card hard enough lately. It's disgusting.
You can't call in sick. You have to use the online wellness site and they can email you back telling you that your request for sicktime is denied and
they expect you to show up.
I used to think my job working in the medical field was high stress. Then I started working at WM. Oi...
