Five Days Before Christmas

The HARASSMENT, RETALIATION, DISCRIMINATION  has been unbearable. The environment is very hostile.  The treatment is abusive and quite intolerable. It has happened many times. It will happen again and again. The biggest RISK is not Knowing the Rule. What happens to the REASONABLE employee who could no longer stand the abuse?  She was too afraid to go to HR because she felt nothing ever gets resolved.  I will tell you what happens.   Girlfriend took her break at 12:10.  She went to look for the manager she felt she could trust to talk about her stressful situation.  She locates the Assistant Manager by the fabric table.  The Co-Manager was there also.  The associate stated it made her very nervous and quite uncomfortable to be around the Co-manager  Why?  This associate is scared of the Co-Manager. There are many associates afraid of this particular Co-manager and afraid of the Store Manager.  She did get the opportunity to talk to the Assistant Manager. The associates clock out at 1:07. At 1:10 the associates passed by my register and told me she had quit.   Who created an Intentional Atmosphere Of Fear? No person should come to work afraid and get harassed. What happens when HR finds out. Does HR know?  Will they resolve the situation?   Jump in HR any time and do your job. Every associate across the nation whether if you work at Walmart or not should remember the RULE listed below.  To raise your awareness seek out information on Hostile Work Environment, Constructive Discharge (quitting your job), Wrongful Terminations, “At Will” Employment Rule, Retaliation, Laws Against Discrimination, Service letter Law (for the State of Missouri) Revised Statues Wage and Dismissal Rights: Section 290.140.1, August 28, 2015, Making Complaints, and Steps to take when you Get Fired. Know your Protective Rights.  Visit Department of Labor & Industrial Relations, Discrimination in Employment and click on labor.mo.gov. Also, click on eeoc.gov.  Employees in the United States without a written contract can be terminated for a GOOD CAUSE, BAD CAUSE, or NO CAUSE at all.  Judicial Exceptions to the Rules seek to prevent WRONGFUL TERMINATIONS.

RULE:

CONSTRUCTIVE DISCHARGE ARISES WHEN AN EMPLOYER CAUSES AN EMPLOYEE WORK CONDITION TO BE SO DIFFICULT OR UNPLEASANT THAT A REASONABLE EMPLOYEE IN A SIMILAR POSITION WOULD FEEL COMPELLED TO RESIGN. THE EMPLOYERS ACTION MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN WITH THE INTENTION OF FORCING THE EMPLOYEE TO QUIT. FOR WORK CONDITION TO BE SO INTOLERABLE AS TO ESTABLISH CONSTRUCTIVE DISCHARGE, THEY MUST BE INTOLERABLE NOT ONLY TO THE EMPLOYEE INVOLVED, BUT ALSO TO A REASONABLE AND OBJECTIVE EMPLOYEE IN A SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCE. AN EMPLOYEE WHO QUITS WITHOUT GIVING HER EMPLOYER A REASONABLE CHANCE TO WORK OUT THE PROBLEM IS NOT CONSTRUCTIVELY DISCHARGE.

On Monday, 15th of December an associate comes to the front by the service desk shook up. Fear was written all over her face.  The associate explained to me she was sent to the front-end to do return carts. The associate kept apologizing because she made it clear she wasn’t familiar with the General Merchandise area. She was overwhelmed and was in a great amount of pain. I asked if there was something I could do to help with the sorting of the basket where she wouldn’t have to bend so much.   I told her I would get some associates to teach her how to sort the grocery returns so the items would be placed in the proper isle. The associates laid out the baskets. They notice she was in pain and moving slow.  She reached over the cart and she dropped a grocery item on the floor.  Once again she apologizes. Grabbing two carts the associate tried to brace herself and pick up the item off the floor. With no such luck, she did not retrieve the items.  The associate excused herself to go to the bathroom. When she returned from the bathroom you could look in her eyes and tell she had been crying. She turns to me and said, “I got to hurt her on the job.”  “I’m in so much pain.” Check out Public-Policy-Exception. Read and learn more.  “Walmart will not take my doctor’s excuse.” “I am so afraid the Co-manager is going to fire me?” ” She wants me to do all of the grocery returns.”  When the associate finishes the job she needs to go over to the GM side and put the returns up in the different departments. “I don’t know where anything goes. I won’t finish in time.”  Makes you go Hmmm! Right Dr. M.E.D.

Why would management send an injured person to an area they’re not familiar with and give them a time limit?  Why would management constantly return to the front end to see how many carts the associate had completed?   Is this a set up for failure?  What happens when you are told you are too slow and unproductive in an area you have never worked?  Why should the associate be given a verbal, written, or the ultimate coaching when thrown into an area because Walmart failed to hire people?  Whose fault is it when Walmart goes on a rampage and force out or fire their GOOD PEOPLE?  It is one thing to manage but over managing is a totally different ballgame. Tuesday, 16th of December, the associates are back doing return carts. Over the walkie, all these demands are given out for the associate to do returns and zone several areas. I’m thinking ain’t no way this associate is going to get all these tasks completed. A person with no injury would not be able to do these task and finish by 7:00 am.  Freight is pulled off the floor at 5:00 am and the cleanup process begins at this point. There are several associates who stay to get their areas completed but run into overtime to later get it taken away or need to kill their overtime before the pay period ends. “NO EXCUSES.”  The associate was off Wednesday and Thursday the 17th and 18th. The associate returned on Friday the 19th of December and was back doing returns again. The associate is getting shoved in all sorts of direction.  The associate goes over to the seasonal candy section and starts to condense the candy. Wrong Move! The Same Co-manager visited the associate’s area about 4 times. Why? The associate can’t screw the job up that bad to deserve this intense management. Is this management or harassment? Could it be retaliation because the associate can no longer do her original job from her injury?

The associates go to break at 12:10 pm.  The associate seeks out the Assistant Manager and talk. Next thing you know the time is now 1:00am and the associate had quit and clocks out by 1:07am.  The associate passed by my register at 1:10am to let me know she had quit. The associate was so upset. Time passes. The assistant manager asks me over the walkie was the returns carts getting done. I asked him was I supposed to be monitoring the associate. There was silence over the walkie. About 2 more hours passed and here comes the assistant manager pushing a cart to the front alongside a support manager. I asked him again where was the associate.  Was the associate going to return and finish the carts?  The assistant manager looked me straight in the face and told me he had the associate zoning another area.  He LIED to Me.  I didn’t say a word. Just like the young man who had been told by an unloader he was sorry he had been fired.  The young man was FIRED on 11/15/ 2007 and reinstated on 11/16/2007 by Market Manager Mike Gray who is now deceased.  No 30-day treatment program for REHIRE. BIG MESS UP and the associate snatched back into the system to prevent a Law Suit.  Once again another COVER UP to clean up the SAME Co-Manager’s mess. This young man did not utter a word. Years of INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR yet no one at WALMART has done anything to eradicate the problem of this SAME Co-Manager INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR. HR and HOME OFFICE has known all alone.  Remember when the lying begins TRUST END.  The LIES just keeps coming.  It has happened before.  Wow! I knew the associate had quit as I checked my watch it was 1:10 am. Saturday 20th, FIVE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS. I knew management would do everything to cover it up. Whatever happens, I’m not to have any information. I’m cool. You call that building communication skills.

Hold up! I.O.U. Payment for wronging who. This associate was wronged and now out of a job. Wait! A miracle happens! Some miracle. The associate returns on December 31st, New Year’s Eve.  What! No 30-day treatment program to be rehired. OUCH! This is a BIG MESS UP and A COVER UP to keep the company from being sued. How many TIMES has the  SAME Co-Manager made this mistake?   The Co-manager who wronged the associate suggested a leave of absence should be taken on Dec 22nd.  What! No BENEFITS.  How much information did the Assistant Manager know?  The associate trusted the assistant manager.   The same assistant manager who called me a SNITCH. The same assistant manager who called RASHAUD a BOY. Rashaud no longer works for Wal-mart. The same assistance manager whose personal discussion/coaching list has grown. Why? Time for A PROMOTION.  Who is the target? The Black CSM who is a pain in Walmart’s  A**. The same assistant manager who said he is watching me.  The same assistant manager who said he would put me out to the floor. The same assistant manager who said 75% of his job is Coaching By Walking Around (CBWA).  The same assistant manager who will be changing rotation in February and said he will FIRE me. Telling associates you’re going to FIRE them can make them become UNREASONABLE.  I’m Cool.  I ask the question, “is that a threat.” He said “no.” Well, I got 4 months left. Not far off from 15 years Anniversary date.   It is just a fact. Yet everyone this assistant manager has given a personal discussion or coaching whether it was Coaching By Walking Around or just plain old coaching is no longer employed by Wal-Mart.  I have his list also.  Not a good list at all. It is always good to make up the list.  When I look back on the list I feel like Gomer Pyle. GOLLY!  SURPRISE! SURPRISE! The other associates he has told he would fire thinks he is kidding.  I don’t.  I understand the assistant’s style of management.  This assistant manager is trained to follow DIRECTIVES.  WOW! When will I get some positive feedback or learn something positive from the Asst? Manager/Coach or FIRED. Time to get a second opinion. What has he taught me? He is not a mentor. He is definitely not my Homie. He COACHES and uses it as a tool when things go wrong.   Members of management are trained to follow Wal-Mart’s script and DIRECTIVES. Wal-Mart language is in reverse. Instead of COACH being positive to TEACH.  COACH is in reverse and used negatively to PUNISH. Wal-Mart in return will reverse it back on the associate and say the associates did not want to learn.

Let’s take a look at CBWA (Coaching By Walking Around). If 75% of management job is COACHING BY WALKING AROUND (CBWA) it is definitely not working at store #2857 Boardwalk Square, Kansas City Mo. So 25% is paperwork in the office. So when will management get their hands dirty and do some real work with the associates?  Management gets paid and receives their BONUSES.  We’ve had several walkouts and mega FIRINGS.   I thought coaching was to improve a job performance not to lock you into a job. BEWARE! If a manager tells you that you’re so good at the job no one can do the job as efficiently as you, look out. Didn’t you go to see this manager about moving on or being promoted? You have been held back and your rights have been violated.  I thought coaching was for developing people skills, preparing the associates for change, and teaching problem-solving skills. There is much more but I will do that seminar another day.  What happens when management is the problem? Do you trust them? I thought the coaching job was to ask the right questions so the associates could find a SOLUTION to his own PROBLEM.  When will management reach out and TEACH the associates the job or have other associates train the associates before they are thrown into a fiery pit of hell?  How can management hold the associates accountable for what management failed to TEACH?  Why would a store manager grade the associate’s EVALUATIONS based on his failures? How is it possible for management to take an EVALUATION down to zero when not one member of management has pulled the associate into the office the entire year to say, “You have blown the job?”  Chipping away at your EVALUATION means you can no longer do the job,  you are headed out the door with no benefits.  Coaching By Walking Around (CBWA) should never become (CBBD) COACHING BY BEAT DOWN). Remember Wal-mart in reverse is to blame it on the associates and once again say the associates didn’t want to learn. The associates are slow and unproductive. (CBBD) COACHING BY BEAT DOWN.

Recently Home Office wanted to know why had there been so much overtime. Simple! All the MEGA TRANSFERS, MEGA FORCE OUTS, and MEGA FIRINGS by the same members of management had the same associates rotating back to snatch up the overtime offered.  The same members of management failed to hire people. What! It’s Christmas.  People could use the extra cash at this time of year. Our store suffered.  Did we serve the people?  NO! Associated were falling off.  Even the associates doing overtime got fed up. They finally realized the money didn’t matter and more people being hired did. It was not because of theft in the store  It was not all attendance.  Who has opted out once again to take responsibility? Come on! Say it with me. WAL-MART. Home Office could send the report to me. After looking at the list of events and the people who are no longer there, Home Office would not be happy with my report. Why do we have the story FIVE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS? EXACTLY! Some members of management.

How is your work environment?  Maybe your work environment may not be ABUSIVE, INTOLERABLE or HOSTILE as my work environment. Every time an associate walks out they prove the part of the RULE that states IT IS NOT ONLY INTOLERABLE FOR THE ASSOCIATE WHO HAS LEFT THE BUILDING, BUT TO A REASONABLE AND OBJECTIVE EMPLOYEE IN A SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCE. AN EMPLOYEE WHO QUITS WITHOUT GIVING HIS/HER EMPLOYER A REASONABLE CHANCE TO WORK OUT THE PROBLEM IS NOT CONSTRUCTIVELY DISCHARGE.  In this case, it is the SAME MEMBERS OF MANAGEMENT.  You really think management is going to work through the problem when they have caused the problem?  Do you think management know what the problem is?   Not only one associate got harmed but MANY ASSOCIATES got harmed by the Same Co-managers.  The Same Store Manager brought harm to another store (1802) in Topeka Kansas. Why has the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR continued? Who did he “CONVINCE” to come to another store and drag the entire store morale down and chase everyone away? Who did the same Co-managers and assistant managers “CONVINCE” they were going to correct the mistakes they made? Whose DIRECTIVES did they follow? Not to question one time whether it was right or wrong to FORCE OUT/FIRE all these associates and not have any help during the Christmas season or throughout the year. Who should take responsibility? We know who won’t take responsibility. WALMART!

It is terrible for someone to HARASS and wrong you.  Why should you have to figure out a way to get BENEFITS?  Maybe they will use their short-term disability, vacation time, or any time the associates accrued.  What a setup! The bar is set very high on the Rule: Constructive Discharge. It has happened to an associate who is Hispanic, who walked out and has her job back. Same Co-Manager.  Review the story Screamers, Shouters, and Shooters-Dec 3rd, 2013.  It happened to another associate from Kurdistan. The associate was snatched back into the system and still works for Wal-Mart.  No 30-day treatment plan for REHIRE. The mess up covers up is back.  He is not at all happy. Same Co-manager!  A young lady on maintenance, Mexican,  is scared of the Same Co-Manager and Store Manager the way they talk to her and treat her. She is transferring out to the store. She hopes her transfer goes through.  I thought SAM WALTON said you don’t have to leave the store. I guess all bets are off. Go talk to the unloaders or maintenance crew.  You can talk to any person in the store and see what you will get. They would be very helpful.  Hispanic, Kurdistan, Hispanic this list is not starting out too good. The associate who walked out is from the Philippine. Throw in a couple of Africans or some Micronesians. Go ahead and make some Gumbo soup. Who’s being targeted and set up for failure? NOT GOOD!

It is a known fact the Store manager,  same Co-manager, and the same members of the management team will deny the transfer. These same members of management will coach you and you will be locked in for one year or until they find a reason to force you out or fire you.  The Same Co-Manager has a pattern of behavior of constantly using this strategy on the associates to induce mega fear.  What about people from other countries?  I’m quite sure it is a struggle to learning the laws of becoming a citizen but to compromise ones citizenship induces more fear. When the associate comes back to work they will do anything.  Did any of the following associates get reimbursed for time lost? I think we know the answer to that question.  Strange! Why do they have their job back all of a sudden?   Targeting different races who are afraid to speak out because they do not wish to get in trouble with the United States while they are trying to Gain citizenship.  What a Cover Up.  Walmart in reverse mode again. The term GAIN is to FIRE an associate in Walmart’s Reverse World.  I guess the next step is to ACQUIRE a new person which is GAIN in the REAL World.  Why has this mistake been made time and time again and the Same people seem to get away. Who BENEFITS? Don’t you think it is TIME for an Independent Investigation by the Attorney General?   Assistant Manager Stephanie Pope walked out and we never saw her return.  Why?  We can refer to the RULE at the top of the page for her exit. There have been many managers who left the store because of the same Rule.  Why did so many of the associates transfer from the store to become new associates at Gladstone, Liberty, St. Joseph, 40 hwy. and other surrounding areas? Refer back to the Rule at the top of the page. This will help HOME OFFICE with their report on the loss of associates. It is the Store Manager and the Same Members of Co-Managers, and the same members of assistant managers. HOME OFFICE if you do not realize it by now it is definitely a MANAGEMENT PROBLEM. You Know Now!

The associate made it quite clear February appeared far away.  She didn’t know if she could make it. The associate’s fear is great and very legitimate.   The associate didn’t know if she could wait until the Same Co-manager rotates over.  Good news! The associate has many witnesses who saw what happened on the days she was up front doing returns. Who will be dragged into the office and interrogated?   The same thing can happen or has already happened to other associates.  This incidence should have never been overlooked.   Reasonable chance for the Employer to fix the problem when the problem is (the SAME) members of management who has gotten away for years.  The Employer doesn’t want to get the WHOLE PICTURE because the picture rests on NOT paying out BENEFITS. Another way to look at the situation is getting rid of all these people so the store can operate on part-time associates only. Well, I guess that solution will kill paying out insurance.  We didn’t have enough full-time associates hired in a timely manner to operate the store.  Knowing the Rule is quite significant. Once again my head goes back on the chopping block.   Intentional Pattern of Behaviors has raised its ugly head once again the same time this year.  Coaching is right around the corner and firing is next on the list.  It is time for another Assistant Manager to step up and become Co-Manager. Why?  So if the Assistant Manager get rid of the thorn in the side who swings the sword of ACCOUNTABILITY he will no longer use his 75% of time CBBD (COACHING BY BEAT DOWN).  I can add him to my list of all the other managers who have come to my head. This is the same Assistant Manager who said I need to watch what I say because people listen to me. Why should you listen to me and learn about your Protective Rights and the Laws? Listen to him. Remember 75% of his job is COACHING BY WALKING AROUND (CBWA)

It is time for maintenance, the unloaders, backroom associates, stockmen, cashiers and all the associates to speak out and let your voice be heard. What good is fighting for $15.00 an hour if you do not know the RULES, the LAWS, and the Company you work for to sustain your job?  ACCOUNTABILITY 2016. A lot can happen at any given time.  To this associate, Five Days Before Christmas was pure hell. The associate is still afraid. WHY?  Once again, Refer to the Rule at the top of the page. It could be me or you NEXT.  There are a lot of injured parties at store #2857.  Remember to learn more about this RULE before you quit your job. You will lose out and your case will be harder to prove unless you have some witnesses. I want what is best for the ASSOCIATES.  Walmart does not invest in their associates but is willing to reap all of the benefits.

Special Note: Visit eeoc.gov and review eeo21.com on Constructive Discharge. Read and learn more. Also to raise your awareness visit timslaw.com.  GOOGLE “At Will” Employment and learn about the history of this policy and know your rights.  Knowing your rights put you at an advantage when you are Wrongfully Terminated or when you are FORCED out the door or not given the option to RESIGN.  Wal-mart has it a way of dodging Accountability.  FEAR can make anyone become UNREASONABLE. The associates have been severely PUNISHED. Let’s change the word to PUNITIVE. Same! Same!  Questions the associates need to think about/mental processing.

1.) Do you feel your employer has treated you poorly or severely punished you/WRONGED YOU?

2.) Do you feel your store manager, certain co-managers, and assistant managers have treated you poorly and severely punished you/WRONGED YOU

3.) Do you think these members of management could ever “CONVINCE”  the associates their BEHAVIOR would change and they would not make the same mistake?

4.) Wouldn’t this be INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR if these members of management knew the strategy of their WRONG-DOINGS induces FEAR in the associates?

5. ) Did HR know about the MISTAKES and the BEHAVIORS of these same members of management?

6.) Did Home Office know about the Mistakes and the Behavior the Store Manager made at the previous store?

7.) Who did the Store Manager “CONVINCE” to give him another chance?

8.) Has the Store Manager failed again?

9) Why hasn’t any action been taken against the Store Manager?

10.) Why hasn’t any action been taken against the same Co-managers and assistant managers?

11) Is there any reason to TRUST these Same members of Management again?

12.) Who did these same members of management “CONVINCE” they would not make the SAME MISTAKES again?

13.) Is there any reason to TRUST HR to help solve the associate’s problems when nothing ever changes?

14.) Who does WAL-MART work for?

15.) Do you feel “DAMAGED” as an associate?    PUNITIVE+DAMAGES=PUNITIVE DAMAGES

16.) Will Walmart be held ACCOUNTABLE for their actions?

17.) Do you think Walmart hire and targets immigrants INTENTIONALLY because they are not aware of their rights in a foreign country?

18.) Do you think Walmart hire and targets Blacks (African-Americans), Hispanic, Latinos, LGBT, Disabled, or people with lower incomes,  and the poor INTENTIONALLY because they are not aware of their rights in their own country?

19.) Do you feel these questions will be helpful to your mental processing?

20.) Do you understand WHY Walmart wants to get rid of me?

Too much INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR. Once upon a time on the grocery side, there were a lot of immigrants. What! GONE! Shut Up!  You better know it was not because of ATTENDANCE.   Review question 17 and 18.  Let’s go back and visit the story Message To The People Dec. 11, 2013 another giant SURPRISE! SURPRISE! Nelson Mandela died December 5, 2013. This story was released 6 days later. I did not make this up. TRU! DAT! Look at the list. There are 11 different languages. All these associates were on the grocery side. They have all gone missing. Why?  I can’t make this up. I sure as hell can’t speak any of these languages. UnBelievable! Let’s take a look at the countries.

1.) BOSNIA

2.) Ethiopia

3.) SPAIN

4.) ARABIC

5.) SW NIGERIA

6.) PHILLIPINO

7.) GHANA

8.) HAITI

9.) UGANDA

10.) MICRONESIA

11.) PHILIPPINE

WHERE DID THEY GO?  Hmmm!

Dr. M.E.D. It is Time to start putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Let’s revisit the story Inspirational__You which was released August 4, 2014. Yes, it was the President Birthday 2 years ago. I didn’t make that up.  TRU DAT! I need all of the MEDIA that MATTERS to take a real close look at this story. A new assistant manager, Stephanie Pope is placed overnight on Tax-Free Weekend by herself without any Co-Managers. Will she survive Walmart’s test? In comes the Dark Knight, Ricky Farr, to the rescue. This was the Black Assistant Manager who was placed overnight.  This was wrong to the 3rd degree.  The COVER UP was to place a white female overnight. I mentioned there had not been any New Assistant managers placed overnight. Walmart is reading the stories.  New management always starts on the day shift. Assistant Manager Stephanie Pope walked out because of the RULE at the top of the page.   Remember in Charlotte’s Webb_Redemption Time!  Stephanie Pope was the only Assistant Manager who did not receive a Development Needed for her Evaluation. Ricky Farr was sent to the LEGEND store #1151. Why? Same Rule at the top of the Page. Notice how I used the word Legend.  Watch how LEGEND come to life in Walmart’s reverse mode World. Here comes the TWISTED BEHAVIOR.

Who needed to once again feel they were POWERFUL, in CONTROL, and UNTOUCHABLE. The store manager.  The store managers favorite pass time is race cars. Who does that remind you of? The failed Chairman of the Board Rob Walton who was removed and replaced by his son-in-law, John Penner.   Both these men have something in common. Rob Walton loses his position as Chairman of the Board.  Maybe Rob went Wild and spent too much money.  Randall Addison lost or was ousted out of store #1802  in Topeka Kansas.  Sending Ricky Farr to the LEGEND, a store, and location, where he did not want to go, was torture. See how the word LEGEND is now 3D.  Ricky Farr revealed to the store manager he wanted to REALLY go to TEXAS. The LEGEND is in KANSAS. Okay!  Having Ricky look at the Speedway was Randall Addison PUNISHMENT.  Refer back to Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.  Whose plan was it to keep all the Black Manager out of the store? What manager had been at the store the longest. Hmmm!  Forget about the TRO (Temporary Restraining Order). This store manager and his crew need something that will last much longer to keep their INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR from becoming bulletproof.  Time to go for another court order (INJUNCTIVE RELIEF) their behavior is out of control. Randall Addison INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR CONVINCED WHO? Soon as Ricky Farr left store #2857 he was replaced by another Black Assistant. Cover up again. I know Walmart read the stories. Hey! Why Not. The TRUTH would be good for Walmart. Did Walmart kill 2 birds with one stone? Stephanie Pope and Ricky Farr no longer work for WALMART.  Unless Stephanie Pope is at another store and Walmart is keeping it under wraps. Peep at the top of the page and the RULE is still there.   Revisit My Friend With the Yellow Pen June 11, 2014. Oh, we are finally approaching the end.  GOLLY! SURPRISE! SURPRISE! Gives you a nice big chunk of the puzzle. The same managers and all the VIOLATIONS in the store and VIOLATING the associate’s rights. As I looked around all the associates who had disabilities began to go missing.  Reviewing Constructive Discharge do you REALLY think these same members of management would try to resolve any of the associate’s problems.  What A SETUP!

Walmart loses an assistant manager. He only thought I had one skill. Later the one skill I had been taken away by the Same C0-Manager.  Why did I file EEOC complaints? The Black CSM head goes on the chopping block again. CEO Bill Simon is kicked to the curb and CEO Doug McMillon steps up to the plate. All in the month of August 2014. Busy Month hey! Talking about tying up loose ends. Every Manager that was on my Evaluation is Gone. Co-manager Shanna-transferred. Why? The RULE is still at the top of the page. Richard Fransen screwed up BIG TIME. He is now at another store. Stephanie Pope and Ricky Farr. The RULE at the top of the page. The only two left are the Same Co-manager who has NEVER changed her behavior since her arrival in 2007.  The same assistant manager who said he was going to FIRE me.  HR has known all the time. My last visit to HR was in 2012.  To help shed some light on the subject on May 15th my 15th anniversary will be coming up. Any associates grandfather in the store has to go.  Any associates that have overstayed their stay has to go. Any associates with medical injuries and can no longer do their original job definitely has to go. Sounds familiar. Any associates that are 40+ has to go. Any disabled associates have to go. Any associates that are immigrants have to go. The list goes on and on. Any associates close to becoming fully vested, look out. There is so much more.

As for all the pain, suffering, and mental distress the associates have experienced is called COMPENSATORY DAMAGES. Hey! There will be more DAMAGES to discuss. So hang tight. Next time you become so upset and frustrated and say the word “I quit” think about Back Pay, which is the wages or salary you would have made from the time you quit until the time you file your lawsuit. Front Pay, payment of your normal wages or salary from the time you won the case or until you are rehired by your former employer or until you find a similar job. Throw in your PUNITIVE DAMAGES because you know you as an associate, “WERE WRONGED.”  Throw in Attorney Fees (Cost Sharing) Whoever was responsible for your troubles (finding of liabilities).   It would be so nice if the associates could request a court order on the out of control behaviors of the Same Members of Management (Injunctive relief).  So the Same Members Of Management would not have a REPEAT PERFORMANCE on their Threatening, Bullying, Retaliatory Behavior.  This would help the calm before the storm until Court TV (Status QUO) to keep Walmart and their team of management from becoming “BULLETPROOF”).  A court order is granted to basically say “SLOW YOUR ROLE”  Just to let you know there would be so many TRO’s (Temporary Restraining Orders) Why? To hold Walmart in place before they could do more harm or damage until Court TV.  No Corporation should be TOO BIG TO FAIL or TOO BIG TO PAY THE PRICE when harm is done to you, me, and anyone NO CORPORATION should be TOO BIG TO JAIL.

Charlotte’s Web__Redemption Time!

Dude! Has it been a month already? Beebe Arkansas! My girl Charlotte has flown the coop.  Were you tired of being invisible? Here’s your chance to speak out.  Click on the story’s title and weigh in.  Tell us WHY, WHO, or WHAT  made you leave Walmart?   Sam Walton stated you do not have to leave WAL-MART to find another career.  Hmm! Inquiry minds want to know WHY Charlotte left?  What ruffled Charlotte’s tail feathers? Corporations try to make you feel like you are a disgruntled associate.  Get out of here! You are not the first and you won’t be the last of the disgruntled associates. Why did so many associates change shifts, transferred to other stores or left the company for better pay? Do you feel you were Wrongfully Fired?  Did you hold a manager position and had no people to manage? Are you being held accountable for a job management failed to explain?  Did you step down from a higher position?  Were you denied the position?  Were you underpaid?  Did you find out another associate got paid more for having fewer responsibilities?  Are you one of the associates who said screw the pay it is not worth the headache? Did you get fed up with management?  Were your problems ever resolve?  Are you tired of the brush-off?   Have you gotten any results from HR? Do you feel like you were being forced out because of your age? Do you feel you would get fired before you get the opportunity to retire? Did Walmart fail to work with your schedule?  Are you being bullied on the job? Has your work environment become hostile? Do you feel you have been retaliated against? Do you feel you have been discriminated against?   This is NOT A NO-DOZ commercial. Wake the hell up and pay attention!  REDEMPTION TIME! If things are going sour in your work environment here are some awareness sites you can check out to keep you well informed.  Learn to advocate or negotiate what you want to happen on the job.  Management can hold you accountable.  Time to hold management accountable and the company.

Wal-mart has lost many associates to GM, Costco, US Postal Service, Hallmark and other business. Walmart invests in their investors and not their employees. Rob Walton, the now-ousted Board of Chairman, never was concern about the associate’s troubles in Walmart. As I recall my last name is not Walton.  Another family member has locked down the position of Chairman of the Board. John Penner, son-in-law of the Walton, will share the nameplates along with CEO Doug McMillon.  The associate’s certificates who dedicated their lives to put Walmart on the map will share a new signature.   All that money Rob Walton spent on races. Another 2 Fast and Furious who crashed and burned and never got serious. Rob Walton liked his zoo zoos and wham-wham’s.  You can always go to Walmart1percent.org and learn more. Just a friendly reminder to let you know in the World of Walmart you are an outsider and will never be included in their family. Walmart works for Walmart. Walmart unfair wages and unlawful labor practices should be included in the 2016 Presidential debates.

It is not as if Walmart can’t afford a pay increase of $15.00 an hour to the associates.   Please go back and read Thanks For the Memory__Wordpress.com (January 5, 2015).  Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, thank you for coming OUT OF THE SHADOWS strongly advocating the pay increase of $15.00 an hour for the people who put large corporations on the map.

I’m sitting here admiring Charlotte’s’ beautiful card. Thank You for acknowledging me as a True Friend, Charlotte.  I thought I would wait and let you burn off some steam. Girlfriend, when you left Walmart in Missouri you were HOT ABOUT IT.  The greatest gift of all is to be True to yourself so you can reach out and be True to others.  Some relationships last and some fade away.  No matter if it was a Marathon or Sprint there was something about the person that made you want to stay. Hoping the relationship would last forever and never decay. Why do people run away?  On the Flip Side Of The Chart, there are many people who don’t have a clue on how to begin. Opening one’s mouth will be the end of the beginning of establishing a new friend.   Their body language is awkward and they just can’t seem to win. Developing friends and relationships in the World of Walmart is a crime and a sin.  Isolation will be your destiny because you are tagged as a whistle-blower and the enemy from within.  In the World of Wal-Mart, there is a disconnect without any respect when you advocate for your Human Rights. Taking on a corporate giant can turn into a messy fight. Stand up for what you believe and do not take flight. Walmart World Project Their Fears Upon You.  When all is said and done this is what WAL-MART say the associates do.  Who is always in the news for getting sued?  Exactly!  WAL-MART!

You see the word Chart, Charlotte? When something doesn’t appear quite right I begin to chart a person.  I am acknowledging that a problem or problems exist.  In order to find the solution to the problem, I start tracking, mapping out, or documenting. If I do not track, map out, or document the problem, I am giving POWER to the person, or persons, or entity.  It will give them the power to punish and enslave me.  Management and the company can be an A**Hole but it boils down to the Law. Shonda Rhimes the creator, producer/writer of Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and How To Get Away with Murder have a No A**hole policy. Rhimes like the fact that her crew all get along. Walmart has constantly gotten away with Murder (downright cruelty/abuse to the associates). It is sad to say the associates are commodities. Walmart is neither loyal are dedicated no matter how long we as associates serve Walmart. Stay off of FACEBOOK talking about your drawers. Puts some quality time in and learn about the LAWS. When the customers roll up to the counter they have their SMARTPHONES out. They keep Walmart ever-changing policies in their hand so they won’t get jilted. Keep the LAWS by your side so you won’t get jilted.

How is it possible to serve 15, 20, 25, or 30 years to a company and all of a sudden the company has begun to look for anything to nail you on?  What is your theory on WHY you are now being treated so poorly?  The associates are the engines that make the train run in Walmart World.  Without the engines, Walmart would not have a World.  How is it possible associates who have served the World of Walmart for all those years go from Sugar To S***  in 2:00 minutes?  Nothing the associates do is right.  When Walmart wants the associates to go away they are picked apart at the seams.  Who made the work environment INTOLERABLE?  Why have the REASONABLE people all transferred, left or gotten fired?  Walmart is a company whose accountability is based on Denial.  Denial of request for the associate’s needs is a major strategy to frustrate, anger, force out, transfer, or make associates quit.  How many Wrongful terminations have there been at store #2857? Hmmm!  Well, at least your popcorn is done.  What is wrong with this picture?  Walmart World is not an Inclusive World.  Who holds the key?  Visit Legal.com. and read the Constructive Discharge-an abusive atmosphere.  Also, visit www.timslaw.com. Tim gives some good advice on the article on Constructive discharge. Laws vary from state to state. Don’t forget to click on the sites above.

Walmart E-commerce (online shopping) will never be able to compare to the Great White Shark__Amazon. Why? Sustainability and Consistency! Amazon has reached out to the World not just their family. If you can’t step outside the box and hire a Board of Chairman outside of the family then it tells the world you are only looking out for #1. Time to get a new dance. The Wally Cheer is out. Uptown Funk would be good.  Sustainability encompasses not the ability for the Walton family to keep all the money for themselves. Sustainability encompasses the outside world.  The Ecology, Politics, Technology, and Ethics. Walmart failed their Ethics course. Walmart is Global Warming deniers.  They want to control the air you breathe. Freaking Fracking is destroying the planet and Walmart invested in the Keystone Pipeline. Drill baby Drill will destroy the planet. Walmart interest would be the oil and their gas station.  Walmart wants to privatize education.

Walmart takes a very literal meaning of Sustainability. The 3Rs for the Walton Family is Reduce the associates. Reuse the old equipment and bypass modern technology.  Recycle bad management who bullies, intimidate, harass, and threaten the associates.  Sustainability includes public opinion, cultural diversity, and social change.  Walmart does not want your advice nor does it wants to change. They want you to follow DIRECTIVES. The politics of Walmart is to protect their world from crumbling from the Deniability Accountability their business was built on. The Politics of sustainability is to protect and prevent environmental damages to the planet.  Walmart does not own the Environment. Wal-mart specializes in Greed.  Science needs to be funded so the government will not shut out new technology. No one will be beaten for using old technology.  Look at the wealth modern technology will bring to our economy. Look at the wealth Walmart has brought to themselves.

Once again Walmart PROJECT their fears upon the associates. Management turns the tables and labeled the associates as bullies. As the late Gilda Radner of  Saturday Night Live (SNL) would say “Isn’t that special.”  Tony, are you and Tara a product of your environment?  Have you been labeled as Bullies?  Don’t be afraid to speak out. Who taught you this skill? You both hold a key. What members of management have you seen as a bully, other associates if you are bullies?  Turn the lock. What! If word comes out the office you both will be punished.  Who is out there on the floor wheeling and dealing undermining different departments?  What happens when you promise you will come on your day off and the deal falls through. Punished!  I can tell by the expression on the associates face when they clock in and look at their task for the night you guys probably feel punished. Make a mistake and get coached and you are punished for a year. Warning! Warning! Danger! Danger! The rotation ends in February. It’s sad to hear the associates say they may be unable to make it through the end of this shift rotation for fear of being coached or fired by Co-Manager Trez and Assistant Mgr. Dianne.  It’s sad to hear the morning shift dread these 2 managers are coming back in February.

I am not afraid to say Co-Manager Trez and Assistant Manager Dianne has made this rotation a living hell (intolerable, hostile, and unfavorable).  I did not break the law. That is just my opinion.  Now when it comes down to the facts I will be able to back up what I said.  Bring It! These 2 managers have their opinion of me. Associates get in trouble when they hold all of the animosity in and feel they can’t trust management to do what is right. Management has their favorites. HR has not jumped in. Management love painting negative pictures of their associates who bust their A** every night. I’m bringing it downtown. That’s why I’m putting this information out here so the ASSOCIATES can fight back. People ask me all the Time am I afraid of getting fired for speaking out. My reply is, “you should be afraid of imploding or exploding when all you had to do talk to someone and let them know something is seriously wrong.”  You should not be AFRAID to come to your job. You should not be AFRAID of certain members of management. The crying, headaches, nervousness, drinking, pill taking, low self-esteem needs to END. AFRAID in the workplace. NO!

Walmart has their inconsistent policy and you should know your rights. I don’t want any associate running in the office saying CSM Linda said. I always think of Big Eddie saying, “get out your cell phone and let’s get to work.”  Management needs to see it in print. I have never in my life seen managers who don’t want to get on a register and serve the people who pay their salary. How can you hold a management position and lack communication skill? Bottom line management doesn’t know how to talk to the associates. Management doesn’t know how to treat the associates. The associates are not second class citizens. Get Real! The associates make management look good. Stop putting so much wax on the floors and pay attention to the associates. They are the Gorilla Glue to Wal-marts. Weigh In. How do you feel?

I strongly feel the associates have been treated poorly. The associates have been shuffled around from area to area.  They are working 3 to as many as 5 departments a night. Management EXPECTATION is unbelievable. It has been so understaffed. Here we are approaching Black Friday and Christmas and once again our store is not prepared. Look at management. Who in their right mind wants to do overtime for a company that will later take the associates overtime away? Who in their right mind wants to do overtime for managers who undermine the associate’s promotions?  Telling the associates one thing but another associate walks away with the position that is promised. This authoritarian management needs you to be afraid. You know WHY? You will find out what management really knows. Walmart hasn’t changed.  Whenever Walmart is under fire Walmart wants you to think they are making changes because they are under a microscope.  Out of all the Co-managers I have seen as a teacher it would be Co-Manager Barbecue Man Himself. Co-Manager Keith. Sorry, Co- Keith I am not trying to get you shipped out of the store. I don’t view you as a Failure.

The store manager lost the associates because he never stayed in touch.  Before Randall Addison arrived other members of management and the associates had taken a beating off Co-Manager Trez arriving at our store in 2007. I will not go down for slander. I like the Truth and I really despise a person lying on me and trying to set me up, my family, or my friends. If Wal-marts goes down it should not be for SLANDER nor SCANDAL. It should be the TRUTH. Some people call it transparency. I call it the BUTT-NAKED TRUTH. There are consequences for telling the TRUTH. I am able to live with myself at the end of the day.   The SLANDER and SCANDAL is a slap on the wrist for Wal-mart overdue BS.  Stop the SLANDER and bring the TRUTH to the table. This store is way overdue for an INTERNAL INVESTIGATION. If Home Office or HR wants to know where the problems exist or can eradicate the problems, they are more than welcome to start here at this blog and work their way through the associates. In the meantime, I will keep working on my end to continue to shine the light on store #2857.

Walmart policy changes in a blink of an eye to fending off the constant laws they break. Consistency goes out the window.  Who make the policy changes? Did corporate make the policies?  Did the store managers, Randall Addison dictate the policies to control management and the associates?   Tara, what happens when you thought you were doing a good deed for Walmart and it went sour? Many years ago I thought I was doing a good deed by going to management with concerns of one of the CSM having some drug-related issues.  That didn’t go well. I caught the worst end.  The CSM got a promotion and a transfer.  To all the associates around the world Weigh In. It doesn’t matter who you work for.   Tara, make sure you tell HR it was Co-manager Trez who went to the floor and discuss the other members of management who received Development Needed on their Evaluations.  Do not hide your key under the rug. The only manager who did not receive a Development Needed was Assistant Manager Stephanie. All the managers are locked in and cannot transfer to another store for at least 1 year because of Randall Addison.  So now we understand what happens when Sh*t the fan.  A member of management transferred to another store but it was not considered a store other members of management would race too.  Hmm! I can’t think of her name right now. I thought of her name and it was Co-Manager Shanna. The store manager and Co-manager Trez treated this Co-Manager very poorly. She probably doesn’t care what store she transferred to. Come on!  A Co-Manager left the store very angry. You are not going to make me believe HR doesn’t know WHY.

How can Randall Addison Evaluate anyone when he has ousted/town hall out from store #1802 in Topeka Kansas? Management failed to fight on the assessment. This store manager weakens, humiliated, harassed, induce fear, discriminated, retaliated and broke down the self-esteem of the associates.  My theory is Randall Addison past failures strategy was to reduce the job performance of the associates/management so he could reign as a powerful person.  This gives the store manager the opportunity to pick people he wanted for the job qualified or not. Only the people he can control will serve his purpose.  Once management starts chipping away at your evaluations on your job performance you lose confidence.  Addison sends his Crew out with crowbars, drills, hammers. The conditions of one’s mind may not be able to focus on the job due to a hostile environment.   You must remember Reasonable people spirit and mind must be broken in order to diminish their self-esteem. Working conditions are very unfavorable/intolerable/hostile at store #2857.

Any behavior can be labeled Intentional unless proven otherwise Unintentional. We will not weave a Web of deceit. There is a Lock and a Key. Which key do you hold Charlotte that will set you free? Here are a few keys that may help you on your awareness journey.  Don’t forget to click the sites that are highlighted. Please search the unlit sites.   There is a life outside of Wal-Mart and many business owners have come into Walmart recruiting.  Amazon is the Great White Shark. It will eat Walmart alive. Why do you think Walmart has the sign up saying NOW HIRING?  Would it have anything to do with the way Walmart treats their associates? Would it have anything to do with the way certain members of management talk to their associates? How about the way the store manager talk to other members of management and the associates?   Walmart, Big Snuffleupagus, the Behemoth towering over many businesses has violated the rights of many associates.  Falling from grace to the tune of 11 billion dollars on Monday and Wednesday losing 21 billion dollars,  Walmart has destroyed the Legacy of Sam Walton. Why! Pure Greed and not investing in their associates only to invest in their investors.

UnBelievable!  How scripted can a person get? This is what makes a person appear not credible or not believable.   CEO Doug McMillon stood in front of the cameras and LIED. CEO McMillon said, ” Clean up your house before you invite people over.” Pinesol has more fresh scents. Maybe he should try using Fabulosa  You can bring people over to your house.  Your house may appear to be clean. What has Walmart swept up under their rugs? What has Walmart hid up under the bed? What skeletons lie in Walmart closet?  What broken toys are in Walmart’s attic? Who broke them? What has Walmart buried in their basement? Walmart needs to be held accountable. Time for the associates to clean house on a regular basis. Forget about Spring Cleaning. Visit www.fastcompany.com/47593/Wal-mart-you-don’t know and read Charles Fishman article.  Charles Fishman has a spectacular book that is a must-read.  “The Walmart Effect: How the World’s Most Powerful Company Really Works and How It’s Transforming American Economy.” Don’t forget to click on the highlighted sites

Charlotte I brought some people from the Walton family into this story so they can see how to correct the global problems at Walmart. I hope Rob Walton participate because he doesn’t appear to be willing to address the concerns of the associate nor did he answer the question on climate change.  You know the associates are quite concerned about their overtime, Time Theft involved around their hours being cut, and Time took back from the company. Walmart has come up with the strategy of labeling associates as managers to avoid paying overtime pay. If you want more information read the article put out by Think Progress back in April of 2015. Visit  thinkprogress.org/economy/2015/04/10/3645483/walmart-wage-theft.  Workers sue Walmart For Manipulating Employee Classification To Deny Them Overtime. This potential lawsuit is taking place in Alameda County. Walmart manipulates associates all the TIME. Associates can’t be manipulated if they step outside of Walmart World and educate themselves about the company. Associates cannot be manipulated if they know their Human Rights. Send letters to US Attorney General General-Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of Missouri-Chris Koster, Claire McCaskill-senator of Missouri. Send a letter to Thomas Perez-Secretary of Labor. Get in contact with Human Rights Commission. Seek out an Employment Attorney for Advice. Contact the media. Use social media. I feel like I’m in a beauty pageant.  I got the answer right.

Stop clicking on your CBL’s and really start reading the rules on overtime.  Walmart has to pay you for half your shift when they call you in. Check out what the 24-hour rule if a member of management gets ahold of an associate to come in and later tell you to get off the clock.  Who is stealing TIME? Shut up! Who made you kill your overtime? NO EXCUSES!  Check out the latest strategy of Walmart stripping the titles off the associate’s badge. Everybody has their name badge with no specific job title. Wow! If this ain’t cross-country instead of cross training. You know longer have cashiers identified as a cashier.  Stockmen are no longer identified stock-men and so forth and so on.  Just your name. Every associate will be pulled in every direction to do every job. It’s what the associates have done anyway all the time. This is probably to avoid another class action lawsuit to rip the levels and pay grades away comparing a person on a level 2 getting paid more than a level 6. Everyone will be considered as equal and has to do every job. Trained or not everyone doesn’t get the same pay. Everyone isn’t treated equally. Everyone doesn’t work at the same pace.  Everyone certainly doesn’t have the same set of skills. It boils down to major unproductivity, more accidents, transfers, and straight out Firing. What a scheme! Look at the name badge. You are now associates without job titles, no promotions, and kind of sorta without a store. You are now on an island and you definitely stand along. It is Walmart’s World and the people who put the Walton family on the map do not belong.  In the world of Walmart Time Theft and Wage Theft are pervasive by members of management.

Let’s get acquainted with the Wal-Mart 1% The People Behind Walmart’s Empire. Visit walmart1percent.org. Click on Meet The Walmart 1% and go to Family Tree. Remember Walmart works for Walmart.

1.) Christy Walton-married into the Walton Family to the late John Walton estimated net worth 39.1 billion dollars (richest women in the world rank by FORBE)

2.) Jim Walton-estimated net worth 34.7 billion dollars

3.) Alice Walton-estimated net worth 34.4 billion dollars

4.) Rob Walton-estimated net worth 34.2 billion dollars

5.) Anne Walton Kroenke-estimated net worth of 4.8 billion dollars and her husband Stan Kroenke estimated net worth is 5.6 billion dollars. He is the owner of the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rapids, Mammoth of National LaCrosse and St. Louis Rams.  Stan also made part of his fortune in real-estate.

Don’t forget to google the net worth of each of these CEO. ( David Glass, Lee Scott, Mike Duke, Bill Simon, and Doug McMillon) The biggest mistake associates make is to work for a company and know nothing about the internal operation of the company. Who really reap the benefits? Who or What is destroying Walmart? Weigh In if you feel certain members of management need to be ousted?  Everyone at store #2857,  and across the country weigh In if you have members of management you feel needs to leave Walmart.

This would be the last Time I would hear Charlotte raspy voice passing register 21.  If steam could come out of her nose and ears, Charlotte would be the upgraded model of Amtrak.   Both hands were placed in her back pant pockets. Charlotte made her way over to the vending machine where she picked up a cherry coke. As she walked further down the aisle I could see that she had picked up a bag of peanuts. “Dude, it is hard being your friend. Co-Manager Therese (Trez) has put me over on the grocery side and tells me I need to redeem myself.  Co-manager Trez wants to punish me. I bet she puts me over on grocery side until I get the hell out of here. What the hell did I do that I have to redeem myself?  Assistant Manager “Dianne did not understand I was in cosmetics not because I wanted to be it was because of my injury.” Weigh In Charlotte and tell us the rest. Thank you, Charlotte for hanging out with me and being a real friend. You caught hell but you hung tough. Not many people would have stuck around. Don’t feel bad Charlotte.

Assistant Manager Dianne has isolated communication.  The other CSM is not allowed to give me certain information. Assistant Manager Dianne calls the CSM on the phone so I will not hear any information about the walker.  This is no way to build communication and team skills. When an associate is fired I am not to be told. Whatever information Assistant Mgr. Dianne wants to withhold she has her own system. Other information is relayed to me by support managers or the other CSM. Really!  Just suppose no one relates any information because I am the enemy of who wants what is best for the associates.  It does violate my communication rights.   Dude, I’m so glad I’m gone. I got my work done faster when Co-Manager Trez and Assistant Mgr. Dianne wasn’t there. I really did struggle.  The night went by slow when Co-manager Trez and Assistant Manager Dianne worked overnight.  Dude! It was torture. Who in their right mind want to do overtime for those two managers.  You can take a poll and I bet a lot of people feel the same way I do. The atmosphere was less stressful when Assistant Mgr. Dianne and Co-Manager Trez weren’t there. Tell Assistant Manager Seth Hello. Dude is Dianne still driving him crazy.  Poor Seth! At least he ain’t a pain in the A**.  He can be an A**Hole. Don’t forget to let the associates know Co-Manager Trez punishment for them was putting the associates in the can good aisle. Did Shooki ever get out that aisle? I haven’t seen Snooki.

Weigh in Sarah Q.  I forgot she has defected from store #2857 and now she is at a Walmart store in Camden.  Sarah Q. tell us why you left so angry?  Hopefully, she will get back with us. Sarah worked on the grocery side a few times. Once you go over to the grocery side it is hard as hell to get out of there. Look at all the associates who have been asking for years to be moved.”  So many associates were DENIED the right of PROMOTIONS.  Even worse the associates did not appear to be informed about the different levels and pay grade.  If the associates worked out of their area they were never paid.   Some of the associates have suffered injuries and their job code needed to be changed. Just another Walmart strategy to break the associate down.  Speaking on Sustainability the welfare of the individual is not sustained. Attorneys should be lining up outside store #2857.  Really! You don’t think HR has any of this information? Get Real! Right, Teresita.

People fail to report the events because they think the corporation is too BIG.  Yes, those policies that play to an audience of not doing a lot of damage and appear to be minor policy changes is really Hurricane Cleo. Further up the road, the changes here and there made on your Evaluation will later signify you can no longer do the job. Guess What? You will be out of a job later.  ADVERSE ACTION.  It really did seem harmless at the time and the associates will suffer the horrible consequence.   Remember when Walmart brought in a CSM from Maryville but she never got the opportunity to be a front-in supervisor.  Her name was Cynthia. I remember her telling me she had received several talks but she didn’t know she was being coached. She said management would pull here over on the floor and she thought they were giving her directions.  Later when she was called to the office she realized the directions she was given was the direction for out the door. Management did not identify what those talks really were. Those personal discussions added up to coaching for failure and not for success. Walmart put associates under surveillance. They track, monitor, and document associates to avoid paying any benefits to the associates once they are fired.  How does your work record look at the end of the day? You thought it was a harmless policy change.  Redemption Time! Get Them Their Papers and line up your witnesses. It doesn’t need to be in order. It is Time for Show and Tells. Keep it Simple and organize your paperwork.

As I was writing this story something strange happen. A part of the story was snatched out. I went through every revision but it is gone. What was written has been lived and will never be forgotten.  The young man who lived that part of the story remembered a quote from Co-Manager Trez who fired him at 9:15 pm on 11/15/2007 in the ad office. “Since you know your rights, you can have your meeting, but it will be harder on the outside looking in.”  On 11/16/2007 this young man was reinstated by phone at 11:00 am by Market Manager, Mike Gray. This sounds like this would be a sign of REDEMPTION for this young man, his family, and friends it led to 8 years of RETRIBUTION. There are many keys to unlock this story of RETRIBUTION. Ye better know it!

I am inserting the piece of the puzzle that got snatched from the story.  A young man arrives at his job around 2:00 pm on 11/15/2007. He clocks in and runs into another associate from the back room.   The unloader greets the young man who works in automotive and tells him how much he is going to miss him.   The unloader tells the automotive associate how much he appreciated all the support he has given the unloaders.  The unloader tells the automotive associate he is sorry about him getting fired.  The young man never utters a word of his firing because he did not know himself.  Imagine how this could really work on a person’s nerve.  This could turn a very Reasonable associate into an UNREASONABLE ASSOCIATE after waiting all that time and not having a clue why he was getting fired. The clock is ticking. The time now is 9:15 pm and the young man is called into the ad office where he is fired. For Real!  Another one of Walmart nasty and dangerous labor practice.  If you are going to fire an individual they should be told not to come in on their scheduled shift. Things can get quite ugly. The rest of this story is UNREAL. You just can’t make this up.

Bottom line, in order to fix a problem you must realize a problem exists. Fixing the problem you need to show concerns and want change.  Rob Walton showed no concerns for the associates. His family interest is the investors. As for Walmart, they are in denial.  This is the only accountability Walmart/Walton rely on. Certain members of management have caused major problems at Wal-mart. HR stood by and let the behavior continue.  It will take a big key to unlock the problems at store #2857.  Who holds the key? The Associates! EXACTLY! This store probably doesn’t realize the problem exists. Hint: It started with the Pilot Program of 4 C0-managers being in the store.  At one time there was the market manager and the store manager in the store. This arrangement didn’t survive because everyone went to the market manager to get their problem resolve.  The 4 Co-managers are locked in.  “NO ONE WILL EXCEED EXPECTATION.”  NO ONE WILL BE PROMOTED.  NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO RISE ABOVE THOSE WHO CANNOT HANDLE THEIR OWN FAILURES. NO EXCUSES!
