Decent Workplace with Decent Benefits
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee) – Forest City, NC – June 25, 2017
This review is based solely on experiences at Walmart 01036. Beginning pay at Walmart is higher than almost any other place for new employees, but the company does not care about it's employees anymore. Employees who have been with the store for 10+ years receive the same pay, or slightly more than new hires. The store does not accept doctor's notes for medical emergencies (miscarriages, heart attacks, death in the family, etc. The store cuts hours by more than 20 hours unexpectedly. The managers show favoritism toward employees (some employees are denied raises for invalid reasons, while other employees with same circumstances will receive raises). There has been unaddressed reported acts of inappropriate conduct by managers. The store powers down the A/C and heat at night, disregarding the comfort of third shift employees. However, as opposed to the three strikes you receive at other stores, at Walmart, you receive 9 strikes before you are fired. An employee meeting giving a brief overview of insights and freight numbers and employee departments begins a typical night at Walmart. Then, employees are sent to designated departments to work 1-15 pallets of freight, depending on the truck load that night. Employees are given two 15 minute breaks and one 1 hour lunch break.
