"Gee, You Didn't Even Cry Once After I Humiliated You. Good For You!"

Hi I work for a Walmart Super center in Tx, but seeing how they are currently out to fire me I am reluctant to say which one.

I have slaved for this company as an overnight stocker for almost 3 years now, and like most people when I hired on I thought it was the greatest job ever. Back then we had an assistant that actually cared. (Try to find one of those now. ha) After 6 months he gave me a merit raise for being one of the hardest workers overnight. I thought I was in heaven, but all that changed when he got promoted to co-manager at a different store. As the years went by the managers got worse and worse. Now we have (name withheld).

His main priority is to clean up the overnight crew. He does this by harrasing anyone who doesnt kiss his a--. Now for many months now my husband & I have worked paper goods together as a very well oiled machien. Nobody will denie that we are the best in our departmant.

Plus we had just received great news. I am currently 3 and a half months pregnent with our first child. Well apperently to Clint this is a crime punishable by death. After I informed management of our joy I've been taken out of paper and had to work departments like Chemicals, Housewares, and even Furniture.

My job has also been treatened time and time again, so I finally got up the courage to talk to the store manager. Sence I have a small problem with being over emotional I wrote him a letter detailing the problems that I've been haveing wiht this manager. After he saw that I wasn't planning on leaveing the store manager reluctantly read my letter. After so many minutes of waiting for him to finish he finally looked up and the first words out of his mouth was. "You've been working with your husband. Oh we cant have that I'll move you to days."

I tried to explain that that is not the reason I had come to see him, but the more I tried to make him understand the more dumbfounded he seemed. Finally I got up to leave my face red with anger, and as I turned to leave he said the greatest thing to me. "Now see you didnt cry once, Im so proud of you. You are really starting to grow up." I was so sicked and belittled by that statment I couldnt even squeeze out a reply.

Principles Not Tolerated at Wal-Mart

At the morning meeting just this morning, the store manager tried to
present me with a 10-year certificate and pin. I respectfully declined.

(I have dealt with numerous unjust write-ups, days of decision, and
even had to have a wrongful termination reversed by the Regional
Vice-President. In view of the terrible way the manager and comanager
in my store have treated me on various occasions, I declined to accept
the certificate from his hand as a matter of principle.)

The result? I was terminated.

Terminated for not accepting a certificate of achievement.

Now I am an unemployed single parent.

Chemical Burns Courtesy of Wal-Mart

I used to work at Walmart but quit, before I quit though I did buy a pair of cheepie flip flops to wear over a weekend trip to the beach,

well, after wearing them a few times I developed what I thought to be a rash from the straps, then it took on the appearance of chemical burns, I have now had this for 10 days, I really thought it would just go away on it's own.

I tried to alert Walmart to a possible problem so that no little kids might end up with this (it hurts after all!) I couldn't believe how rude and mean the manager was to me, he acted like I was making it all up, I tried to show him & he turned his head away so that he could say he never saw it.

I never used to think so but now I really feel like Walmart is a horrible company. You would have to been there but it was almost as if since I was a former employee, he was going out of his way to be mean to me.

All I wanted to do was let them know that there might be a problem with some Chinese made shoes since I am not allergic to latex or rubber. I am not a sue happy type person but automatically he was defensive and basically acted like a complete jerk to me.

So now I have decided to let every single person who will listen know exactly what happened and how a representative of Walmart acted toward me.

Thanks for your time, and yea...I really do agree, Walmart is terrible, not matter what I will never set foot in one again. Kerry
