One of our CSM's got murdered / shot in the head in the store on a busy Sat afternoon.(Many familes and children were present). Management knew she was being stalked and her ex boyfriend had threatened to kill her several times.
They were informed each and every time he came in the store. Brilliant management moved the money podium, BECAUSE OF A MEMO, away from the front of the store, where she could see 180 DEGREEES around her, with her back to the wall, to the middle of the friggin candy /softline main aisle , exposing her 360 , so she was looking at back end of the customers and checkouts.
Her stalker was hiding amoung all the clothing racks.
Walmart has the murder on video. Walmart cares more about their stupid memo's than about employees safety. She died within a 10 day period of this brilliant move. Walmart management and Corp policies don't give a damn about people they care about money and whatever dumb new ideas they can think up. (What's this crap about "flights").
They knowlingly put her in an exposed area.
One of the managers of the store, who leans heavily on her help, and can't deal with a crisis alone, called in the HR mgr, who lives 2 hours away, had to help her deal with everything. He came in and helped everyone, management, the victims family, set up a memorial book, tables, helped with the funeral etc. was there for the assoc. p.s. no one saw that manager for weeks. he was the veritable backbone that kept that store going.
OBVIOUSLY THE STORE CLOSED THAT SATURDAY, SINCE IT WAS A CRIME SCENE AND THERE WAS BRAINS AND BLOOD ON THE FLOOR, ETC. SO MANGEMENT SENT EVERYONE HOME. TOLD THEM YOU WILL BE PAID FOR THE DAY. duh!!! WE KNOW ITS NOT YOUR FAULT YOU CAN'T WORK YOUR HOURS. THERE WAS A MURDER!!!!
CORP WALMART DID AN AUDIT THIS YEAR AND FIRED THE HR MANAGER, BECAUSE THE EMPLOYEES WERE PAID FOR THE HOURS MANAGEMENT PROMISED ON THE DAY THE CSM WAS MURDERED.
WHEN CORP DEMANDED TO KNOW WHO AUTHORIZED THE DAYS WAGES. ONE OF THE STORE MANAGERS LIED/ BAILED, AND LEFT THE PERSONNEL MANAGER HANGING IN THE BREEZE. BECAUSE THAT MANAGER DIDN'T BACK UP HER PERSONNEL MANAGER , WALMART FIRED HIM. TOLD HIM HE COULD QUIT OR BE FIRED AFTER 16 YEARS WORKING FOR WALMART. IT WAS HIS ONNNNLLLY JOB REFERENCE.
DON'T TELL ME WALMART CARES ABOUT IT'S EMPLOYEES. IT CARES ABOUT ITS LAST NICKEL IT CAN DRAG OUT OF YOUR DYING HAND.
