The have a point system which they didn't have when I started. Your only allowed a couple. If your in the hospital that counts, that is just not right if you have a death, that counts, etc. Wal-Mart was always a family oriented place, that is suppose to have an open door policy. That's total B.S. The management for the best part has been chosen by the riff- raff of Wal-Mart. Now the management however is treated wonderful, they leave work whenever they want (not that all management knows that) they can call in whenever and it doesn't matter, they have visitors that walk around with them their whole shift (that's all the managers do at night) but yet if you're not an a*s kisser, your gone. For instance, I got written up for a couple points, a death, I was in the hospital, and a migrane and doctors notes to follow. I got my D-day and my review paper the next day which I got a raise and on it it said thank you for all you've done the years you worked for Wal-Mart. The next day they worked me until break and fired me because someone didn't get one of her bags off of the spindle which hasd been a problem from day 1 when they switched to them. We had a whole notebook of things people didn't get off of the spindle and all they did was bring in their receipt and they could get their things. I had been their 5 years, worked on my days off, was given CSM work to do (not CSM pay) Which I didn't mind, and all sorts of duties besides the ones expected of my job, and then that's how they sh*t on you, but it's O.K. for them (the management) If Sam Walton would know his employees were treated like this, well, he's probably doing back flips in his grave. And to end this tragic story of Wal-Mart their are quite a few others that were screwed royally! This is addressed to the NORTH HANOVER WAL-MART NIGHT SHIFT !!! They have had numerous complaints about the management on night shift also.

This is still a new poll, another ex-employee will tell you her story which is similar! She was in the hospital, the next night they worked her until morning and BAM, fired her.

You know, if you're working night shift at Wal Mart and complaining about how you get treated, maybe you should be bemoaning how little you studied in school instead of nitpicking people who actually got ahead in life.

Who is the store manager? Have you called the better business bureau? I had no idea that they treated their employees this way! Best of luck to you!

This is really sad.... and strange. They don't have to make it so difficult for employees. Yes, I'm sure there are some that abuse the system and take off work, but if you have documentation that shows hospitalization, I'd say that's a pretty damn good reason to miss work. Guess the managers never have emergencies of their own? Are they doing this because of so many people losing their jobs that applicants are now plentiful or has this been their policy all along? Did you know this when you were hired?

Another worthless poll from H-D Rider. You know you're redneck if you can't keep a job at Wal-Mart.

We also have a point system .3 points = verbal warning- 5 points = 3 day suspension- 7 points and your gone. No points though if you have a doctors note. Its really hard to get past 2 points because all you have to do is go to the doctor.I gpt a point last Feb for calling off for the faytona 500.I even told them i wasnt coming in because im watching the race. I guess ill get another point this year.It would be a cold day in hell before i would work at wal mart. i cant stand that place.I cant wait until Target opens up.

Where's Target going to go? Any idea yet?(And I understand about the faytona thing. I've been making a lot more typos lately, too, and I hate it when they come out in public, lol.)

YOU SOUND LIKE A LOYAL, HARD WORKING EMPLOYEE TO ME ! I am a small business person, and if any of my employees did not show up for work because of a car race, they would be terminated immediately! No points, no warning, just "here is your last check and out the door you go"! You have a "red neck" work ethic.

Come to work at TaTeR-MarT and get all the benefits you want, sick days off you want and vacation you want. Of course in order to do this all customers entering the store pay a five dollar cover charge, have to help stock the shelves and check out in the automated line.

TaTeR-MarT, all things to all taters
