A little background info for all of you. I work at Walmart doing the crappiest job there. I push shopping carts into the building. I get underpaid to do the most work in the **** store, if you don't believe...come try it for a couple days at 8+ hours a day. However, I'm not here to complain about my crummy job. I'm here to complain about how bad things happen to good people, because bad people like to have fun.

Tonight another "Stockman" as they like to call it, came over to me while I was working and jumped on my machine while it was moving. I told them to get off or I would get in trouble. I had to managers in front of the store do nothing as they just stood there. I didn't have a radio to call for some assitance so I just continued to do my work.

They take the key from the machine, try to punch me and do other bullcrap things to piss me off. I saw my 2 managers walk in as the other kid and his brother walked away.

Another employee came to get me and tell me my managers wanted to see me. I thought they were going to ask me what happened and other stuff. Instead I GET IN TROUBLE!!!!!!!! Yes, you read it right! I GOT IN TROUBLE BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE MESSED WITH ME. They jumped on the machine while it was moving and that is a safety hazard so I GOT A WRITTEN COACHING which is next to getting canned (The next step is writing a letter; kissing ass, so I can keep my job...hell no I'm not begging for a ****ty job).

I really can't believe this sh1t. I work harder than anyone in my department...work overtime when people decide to call off because it's raining or too hot/cold. They said they would have a talk with him next time he comes in to work.

I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get a written warning, but I got one because I already had a verbal coaching...and you know why?

WALMART DOES NOT ACCEPT DOCTOR EXCUSES, ONLY EMERGENCY ROOM PAPERS. So for that week that I couldn't walk because I pinched a nerve in my back (Dad's a Chiro...so it's all good), I got in trouble because I couldn't come to work. It's even worse because they never told me that they don't accept excuses...so WALMART's philosophy is, "We won't tell you what your doing wrong, but we will still fire you for not knowing what is wrong"!!!!

I know life isn't fair, but this is F'ing ridiculous.

I guess I'm gonna have to use that graduation money for gas now since I'll probably get yelled at tomorrow for wearing glasses or something...oh, I have gel in my hair, I hope I don't get fired!!!!!

END RANT.

Yeah, life can be a pain sometimes, man. Sometimes all you can do is tell your side to the right people and hope for the best.

Ready for it? Here we go!

Stay in school, study hard, and get a job where you're the boss!

Just wandering, have you applied for other jobs? Sounds like you should quit. Working at a movie theater isn't so bad, well the one work at.

A shop down the street is hiring for kitchen work...stopping by after school to get app. I should be able to work 3-12 so that is a good 9 hours so 9 x 2 = 18 hours just cooking food. Plus 9 hours days at walmart (8hrs of just work...1hr lunch) = 32hrs until I get fired...

Yeah, I'll figure it out.

I hate as**oles like that, like said earlier, I would quit, unless you're getting a paycheck or whatever is going to happen. Unless you don't get a job (which I doubt, you sound resourceful), they're the ones who suffer it sounds like. They'll have to get somebody else out there to get the baskets til they get someone else, and if they already have someone else waiting for your job, there is a good chance they'll quit because of the hard work or slack off(at least that's what I hear from my friends anyway).

Good luck on the job hunt, as again also said earlier, I hear the movies are good place to work

Wal-mart won't suffer if you quit. If you spin, they win. They'll just hire another gel-haired stockman to do your job. Or a laid off factory worker that would be happy to get anything.

Sorry to say, if you're in charge of your machine and you cannot control it, it's YOUR responsibility to stop the machine, get them off of it, and report safety violations. If you don't, then you may be at fault. Especially if you keep moving after they jump on it. Then it's on YOU.

Or, they may be gunning for you. In that case, hunt for another job, because they'll eventually get what they want. You to be gone.

Unfortunately, to me, Wal-mart is a place to gain work experience and move on, or for retirees to have something to do for a few hours per week.

File a harassment complaint with your supervisor.

Explain that your fellow worker is creating a hostile work environment.

If he fails to take you serious see HR.

O.K. Look...It's Wal-Mart. It sucks what happened, but you're talking about a company that hires uneducated workers, then promotes the best of the retards all the way up the chain up through the District level. This is where stoners work as stock boys, and single mothers work as cashiers. The standout high school graduates are usually an area manager in a year, and asst manager in 3. The people who are supervising you, have NO OTHER relevant experience or training other than from Wal-Mart. They think they're important now, but would be completely boned if they were ever fired. Take their BS for what its worth...Not a whole piss of a lot.

You're an 18 year old who is planning on going to college next year, and they know you don't need their BS.

At the end of the day, that's all that really matters. Although I do not know you future career plans, you'll have plenty of years dealing with corporate BS. Enjoy these years of your life. Don't stress about a job like this. Find some place that is FUN to work.
