Who is Letting Wal-Mart Away With This Greedy Nonsense? The Employees, of course.

I work for a Wal*mart in CT. I'm currently working in the accounting office, and it is pure hell.

On June 18th our office (which housed 7 associates) was told about Flight 1. We soon called it the day our office died. My Lead Cash office assoicate lost a paygrade, and she was going to lose 4 of her girls. We were told that if you still wanted this job, you had to be able to work from 5am to 2pm, and only three people will be in the room.

I was one of the "lucky" ones.

Soon we found out that half of our stuff had to be taken out of the office, we lost a calculator, a filing cabnit, and a chair. There is always two people in the room, yet one always has to stand. Then we were told that we had to process a whole days worth of money by 9am!! We've been doing this for about a month and we still can't do it.

It has gotten to a point where our managers are coaching us for "not adapting to change" and "not following policies". It's not that we aren't trying it's just that you can't process 30 to 40 thousand dollars in 4 hours AND balance.

It got to a point where we were asked to be taken out of the room, because we can't take the stress, nor stand the constant bullying we recieve.... but we were denied.

Our store manager came in to talk to us, and told us that the stress that we go through in this office will be nothing compared to what's going to happen with the next set of "Flights."

We were told that we will no longer have loss prevention, there will only be 4 department managers, and ALL associates MUST HAVE an open availablity. If you don't, then you have 1 month to decide if you're going to stay, or quit.

This company is forcing most of their long term employees to quit, not to mention a lot of single parents, just because they don't want to pay for overtime, and insurance. Something needs to be done!!
