From December 2022 to May of this year, I was working at my local Walmart. I started as a cart associate initially, before I was granted a door greeter position a month later.

During my last month of employment there, I wanted to request a schedule change so that I could have some free time in the week to work a secondary job. The personnel woman told me that I had to speak to a certain front team lead about getting a 'schedule change' paper. I approached the team lead in question and asked, in a calm and polite manner, if I could have the paper in question. She responded with a scoff and said 'You can't get your schedule changed 'cause you ain't been here for six months!' I was taken aback by how she answered my question, but I didn't think much of it and moved on.

A few days later, I was pulled aside and confronted about how I was clocking out early. That, I will admit to doing. But the times I was clocking out were practically inches close to either the store's closing time, or the end of my shift (i.e.: clocking out at 10:59 when closing time/shift end was at 11:00).

A few more days later, after I came back from my last fifteen minute break, one of the team leads pulled me aside again, and called me out for not checking a cart as I was leaving to take the break in question. I wanted to argue that it wasn't my business if it happened as I left for my break, and that it would be the business of whoever took my place so that I could take my break. But since I didn't want to lose my job, I kept my mouth shut.

Around this time, my uncle passed away from bone cancer. The day before his funeral, I approached one of my team leads and asked if I could take that next day off so that I could attend the funeral. She responded by saying I could call the employee hot-line number and put in that request. So, I did just that.

However, when I came back to work a few days afterwards, that very same team lead approached me and asked. 'When you put in the request to take that Monday off for bereavement, who was it for?' I felt confused as I thought I had already told her what went on on that Sunday. After I answered that it was for my uncle, she immediately said 'Okay, so that doesn't count, and now you're on the chopping block with five points of absence.' (context: I did have some penalty points accumulated for taking sick days)

Having had enough, the very next day, I went straight to the personnel office to report everything that had happened to me, and the woman said that she would get in touch with the store's manager as soon as possible. However, the day came and went, and even when I knew for certain that both of them were in the same vicinity (and on the clock, too), I was told that they never approached each other, and by proxy, my serious report was never talked about once.

Seeing that as the final straw that broke the camel's back, after I clocked out of my shift, I turned in my vest and various employee cards. Ever since then, I told myself I made the right decision, but now, I'm not so sure.

Was I right to quit my previous job? #question

Me pasa mucho que al final de la semana hablo lo que he bautizado como 'broken English'. Mi cerebro se cansa de pensar en inglés/traducir/entender... ¿Te pasa? It happens to me a lot: I'm bilingual, but at the end of my work week, my brain is exhausted, and I speak "broken English." Sometimes, managers are out of patience too... bad combination. #question #bilingual #Latinx #English #advice #Español

How can companies build and maintain a strong company culture in a remote work environment?? Company culture is often built through in-person interactions and shared experiences, but remote work can make it more challenging to build and maintain a strong culture. Companies are exploring ways to create a sense of community and shared purpose among remote workers, such as through virtual team building activities and company-wide virtual events. https://media.giphy.com/media/dSetNZo2AJfptAk9hp/giphy.gif

Ideally, I would like to work in a hybrid mode. Now I am looking for my next job but I need to move to another state in the summer so remote is the ideal way to go now. Very interesting your POV, @Amanda Garcia and completely agree remote work may not be a fit for everybody!

I love working remotely. I use all the tools in my arsenal, telephone, internet, video chat and text messaging. I am able to stay connected to all projects I am associated with and/or I am interested in. I think that a remote worker must be disciplined and have an internal drive that makes them want to excel. I also travel when necessary to the work site. Most of the work sites are 10+ hours away.

Do you enjoy working with Public or in a Private Sector? For me I enjoy working with the Public because of the rewards of it. Each day, I never know who I am going to meet when providing services to their homes or business. The rewards of meeting new people each day allows me to educate myself. As a small business owner, my day starts with arriving at a strangers door and identifying myself as the technician who will resolve their issues. For the most part seeing the smiles on their face after resolving their issues is the most satisfying feeling. From small to large jobs, you only have a brief description of what is happening at their home or business before arriving. After the introduction it’s time to get to work. Once the job is complete, we show the customer the results and watch them smile and thank you. This is the best part of it for me. When I asked my employees the same questions they agreed that’s why they enjoy the job. How about you? #workquestions #question

As the year 2022 comes to an end, it is important to find out how our community is feeling about the Jobcase App and Community?

By providing our feedback it will allow the Staff at Jobcase to use to better understand how we feel. I will start with answering my own question first.

As a member of the Jobcase Community, I love the interaction this platform offers when searching for a job, sharing #MyThoughts with the Community. Over the years as a member of the community, it allows me to help others by sharing and helping one another.

My Dislikes are the fact that it takes so long to flag a Post or Person who is trying to SCAM PEOPLE in the COMMUNITY. I feel Jobcase can do better to Stop the Spread of the Scam Threads. Keeping in mind we will never be able to completely stop the spread or intent of Scams. However, they are preventive measures that could be done in order to limit the damage it causes yo our members. I often see post from people who Post Fake Jobs and Dating. I report it and it takes days before that account is suspended. I believe Jobcase can do better in the future.

What are your Thoughts? #MyThoughts #questions #question
