Confused about what to do

A few weeks ago, probably around a month or so ago, I was hired. However, I have not heard about when I am scheduled to come in or when I should start working. I think I was hired in September. I completed my background check and paperwork. I even went through training and got the uniforms for work a few weeks ago.

I've been trying to contact HR but I haven't had much luck. Should I drop by and ask? I'm afraid that I might come off as too clingy and then they won't want me to work there. I am also afraid that I ended up being a no show because they scheduled me for work but I didn't receive the schedule. This is a place I wanted to work at since I was a child. Should I just continue to wait? #hired #joboffer #startdate

UPDATE: I got a schedule! Thanks for all the advice everyone. I really appreciate it.

Go up there and ask to speak to one of the assistant managers and tell them what's going on and figure out from there or ask to speak to Heather in the Walmart store in Waynesboro Supercenter not sure which store you applied to

I would go in to the store you applied to and show them whatever proof you might having showing that you were hired and ask.

Go in and ask. Find out what's going g on and explain you haven't heard since training and you would like to know.

Did you find out? Did you get a paycheck for the training?

I remember I was hired to do computer work at this small company once. I was really looking forward to getting hired since I thought it would be a good opportunity for my career. Yet, as time went on I found out that there was not any paperwork for me to sign or any training whatsoever. Needless to say, the manager who hired me transferred to another location.

Yet, I have to admit that I had met an acquaintance who said he had a bad experience working with the same manager at a different location in the company.

Needless to say it was a missed opportunity. But I had an insight for how the manager's personality was like. He didn't take much consideration for his employees.

I would go in and ask to speak with the hiring manager and explain the situation. And let them know that you have been trying to contact HR. It was in September when you got hired, it is now November, and you haven't been able to speak to anyone. No one is going to hunt you down for a job. You need them, they don't need you. So you have to go after what you want. Have an explanation ready as to why you took so long to reach out. The worse thing they can say is no, in which means there is a better opportunity that awaits for you.

Go do a walk in and ask to talk to a manager they won't see you as clingy. They look at you as you ready to work and explain to him/her on what is going on.

Go tell them what you told us. It's yes or no you need to move on if they don't need you. There is other job's out there that pay what they pay.
