I was in the Army for almost six years until my contract ended and now I am attending school while I was working at walmart.
Well yesterday at 1830 i was brought into the office and sat down with the store manager and the PA I think he was. They told me I was be investigated into for comments of violence and sex, I have never done this but they kept on saying "we have done a thorough investigation". Now I am an honest man and I don't go around threatening people or harassing them or saying sexual comments.
They never approached me and asked me if this was true or what's going on, my side of this farce. So either someone had it in for me or they just wanted me gone, this I do not know.
But I was banned from all their stores so they say and sister stores, I had two cops talk to me to make sure I wasn't a threat because I ex military and because of god know what was told I said. I feel embarrassed and attacked, but most importantly I left puzzled why people would do this to someone for no reason and treat them like this.
I worked at Wal-Mart for 13 years. This past June I was
terminated. Early June I was called into the manager's
office and informed that there would be a red book
investigation. Human resources was to be doing this
investigation. Two other associates claimed that I was using
profanity. The word that they said I used is a word that I
don't use. I don't even like others to use that word around me.
This investigation lasted at least two weeks. On June 12 I went
to the store manager and told him that I might need to leave
work early on June 14. My aunt had passed away and I needed
to be at the funeral hom with my family. On the morning of
June 13 I went to this same manager and asked him if I was
getting fired. Several people had come to me to tell me that
the personel manager had been telling people that I was
getting fired. He assured me that I was going to be terminated.
I finished my shift that day. As I was on my way to the time
clock to punch out for the day, I was paged to the personal
office. This same manager then informed me that I was
being terminated. For an investigation done by HR, it is
funny that HR never bothered to visit the store to speak
with me. He informed me that I was to leave the store
without speaking to anyone so he had me escorted out like
a common criminal. I am not rehireable at Wal-Mart, and
I am currently unable to find a job. I believe that Wal-Mart
is one main reason that no one will hire me. That store
manager has since been released from Wal-Mart as well.
I emailed home office asking for an explanation, and they
obviously did not feel the need to respond.
I had worked for walmart for almost 2 years. My department manager in KY started sexually harrassing all the employees in the photolab and he started to bring his baby son back there with all the chemicals and help customers while carrying him around (which I talked to OSHA and its very illegal) and management didn't do anything about it! I gave them the dates and the times that he ever did it and they never cared UNTIL I contacted OSHA! They tried to coach me for every little thing possible. They started cutting my hours and things just kept getting worse! Management tried to coach me AGAIN. The GM sat there and yelled at me. I later went to the doctor on my lunch break because I started having chest pains and severe headaches. The Doctor would not let me leave because my blood pressure was reading close to 200 and I was suffering from severe anxiety. I had to have someone come to release me before I could leave! and guess what... Walmart yet again tried to get me in trouble because of attendance! I later just gave up with walmart! I lost my house and everything because I was without a job! I couldnt claim unemployment because they said I abandon my job even though they were firing me! Walmart kept my paper work from the doctor and I also had people in the photolab write statements against the manager and they kept them also! This all happened from Feb. 2009 - July 2009 in KY
