Walmart Ripoff! got fired for standing up for myself Danvers Massachusetts
To anyone concerned,
I had worked for several Walmarts in the past three years, I worked up in Maine and then moved to Massachusetts. Well the Walmart stores in Massachusetts are totally different then the ones up in Maine.
Well I got a good position, and I was always praised by customers, I could multi-task, and I was a hard worker. My department manager left me a task list, and I needed to check the work I had done off, so that she knew what I had done.
So pretty much you could say I did a lot. I knew where all the merchandise in my department went, and I was a favorite to my returning customers. I did the CSM's favors by ringing on the register, even if I didn't want to. I would go outside and push carriages sometimes, I would have to do anything they asked or else I would get in trouble. I had to come into work even though I was sick with pneumonia, even when I had bronchitis. They would not let me call out, so I had to suffer and work..but I got the work done.
Well here is where it starts. I was and still am dating someone that works in the Walmart where I worked. I got her the job there, when she moved to the state. So of course, the personnal manager had to tell me that he hoped it wasn't a mistake of him hiring her.
So months went by and everything was a-ok. We both did our work and went home at the end of our shifts. Almost a year down the line, and associates who we would normally talk to on a regular basis were accusing both of us of calling their cell phones, and calling them at the Walmart--pranking and saying rude things. Well one day there was an obscenity in the bathroom of another associate, it said so-and-so is a whore. Well another associate got involved by taking a picture of it and bringing it to the store manager. Needless to say, another associate got involved by saying that I had written the obscenity in the bathroom. Well my soul purpose of going into the bathroom is to wash my hands and well go to the bathroom.
Then one night while I was off, and my gf was working..an associate attacked her verbally, saying to stop f***king calling my phone and stop calling this person! We know it's you and your gf! She tried to tell him that it wasn't us. Well he didn't listen and just yelled more, and then he went to his own department.
So she called me crying, she was in the bathroom, and she was very very upset. So me being protective, and very angry, I went to Walmart, and gave this kid a piece of my mind. Mind you I was off the clock and well as far as I am concerned when I am off the clock I am on my OWN time. I made my gf leave..she was having a panic attack from being yelled at.
Well the next day my gf's manager yelled at her saying that she wasn't having a panic attack and that she lied to him. The manager told her she was in the wrong. So we both went to the store manager and told him what had happened, and we both went in to have ourselves some kind of witness. Well the store manager said what I did was wrong, he said that the witness' to my little escapade were insulted, upset, and offended. I asked him several times if I was going to get fired, and he said no.
Well a week went by, and I went to work on a Friday. I had worked for two hours, when they had called me in to the office. I was with the store manager and a assistant manager. The store manager that said I wasn't going to lose my job told me, I'm very sorry, but I need to terminate you. I said to him, thanks for lying to me. He said he didn't lie to me.
I had told him when I was in tears that his firing me was a mistake. He asked me why, and I told him. I have never slacked in my work, and the person that was doing the accusing was the biggest slacker of them all. He is friends with the LP(even they got fired, for stealing 10k) so he was able to steal stuff on his own, and having the tapes get erased. He tries to get everyone in the store to hate my gf that is still there.
I am still without a job, it's been a month and a few days now. I still go in there to get lunch to my gf, or go visit her if she is feeling sick and needs some medicene. I believe I was wrongfully fired. For three years, I have watched an 81 year old man get accused of stealing, and then was fired. I watched a customer in a wheelchair having a seizure, get pulled over by Loss prevention--being accused of stealing.
I have watched this associate that got me fired, sit around and do nothing, he hits on every girl he can, he can't keep his hands off of them--and he never does any work--also I have seen him sitting around watching the videos in the LP office, when regular associates aren't supposed to be in there. I have seen him steal. I have seen other associates steal. I always kept my mouth shut about it..I could not keep my mouth shut about being accused by some little low life who gets off on watching people hurt. I've seen so much, and well I know a lot of juicy details about the company of Walmart. I will not be afraid to tell the world. That company is nothing but lies.
I was promised good benefits..well those benefits are crap. Those benefits have put me into debt. I do not shop there anymore. I refuse to. When I left that night when they fired me..they handed me $800.00 to keep my mouth shut. Well that won't do it. Thanks for listening, and if you have any questions, or comments..feel free
