Walmart, Where We Throw Your Paycheque at You

I have been working at WalMart for a little over a month now and I just got my paycheck last week. It was half of what I actually earned! They didn't add the 30 hours I worked to my paycheck.

I have been relying on unemployment because of this and now unemployment is on my ass saying that they may have overpaid me! I was quite shocked to get the letter and I hope that they understand my situation but that's only half of the problem with how WalMart has treated me.

I asked my Front End Manager when new people get paid and she said that the checks should be in personnel.

I followed one of the other front end guys to personnel and called Accounting. The guy with me said that Accounting was busy and that they would be here shortly and told me to wait for them. 10 minutes go by and a manager comes in and starts yelling at me saying WHAT ARE YOU DOING BACK HERE DOING NOTHING?! WHY AREN'T YOU UP AT THE FRONT?! HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BACK HERE?

I explained that my manager had sent me back here for my paycheck and that I had been back here 10 minutes. She of course didn't believe me and called Accounting. She talked to the wrong person and had a "Gotcha" look on her face. She practically threw my paycheck at me and said "HERE! NOW GET BACK OUT THERE!"

God forbid I actually get paid what little I did get! She treated me like I was some kind of ingrate and that I should be grateful for having a job! I told my manager and she said don't worry about it. Gee thanks.

You don't know pain and despair until you have worked at WalMart. Their latest commercial of "successful" associates is absolute BS!
