Terminated by Wal-Mart

I worked for Walmart off and on for 25 years this last time was for 17 years. They told me I was terminated because I made to many mistakes, first they told me I was to slow and couldn't keep up, I pointed out to them before they promoted me to management, I was going to be slow because I was handicapped (I only have one hand) but I kept my head down and did my work the man you promoted me said I was exactly what he was looking for. Thru the years he left the company and a new GTM came in. After pointing this out They changed their tune to I was making to many mistake but still they kept me dispatching 3 D'C'S (distribution centers) when a lot of people where dispatching 1 or 2 DC's there were a lot of times 2 people were dispatching 1 DC. At first they started accusing me of things I didn't do. I was on vacation and they said they tried calling me in for coverage, I was out of town and I told them I would be out of town I had family coming up to visit me and I would be out of town also I wasn't next in line to do coverage two other people were ahead of me on of the person that was ahead of me said they never called him to come in. Also I have document to back a lot of this up, and also I have tape recording of them falsely accusing me of thing I didn't do. I used their open door and when they terminated me I asked the HR manager what every became of the open door issues no one every got back with me, she told me they couldn't find any reason to allow it so they threw it out without even telling me. I went to a lawyer and he said they couldn't use the tapes in court because it was done with out their permission also he wanted $460.00 an hour which I couldn't afford. So I gave up taking it any further. This all happen in May of 2014 I suppose it's to late to do something about it now. I was 7 months away from turning 66 I thing that might have been one of the real reason they terminated me. Since then I have applied over 200 places to get a job and been refused. I sure they were behind that to. #Walmart is all about politics.

Hi @Cindy Quasarano, when interviewing for a retail sales associate job, I'd show up prepared with examples of why you'd be a great candidate for the role. Use your resume as a reference and come up with some talking points around your past positions and how they relate to the retail sales associate job. I'd also think of any questions you would have for the hiring manager about the position itself and the company. This is a great time to review how to navigate tough interview questions, too!! And remember, an interview should be a two-way dialogue! Good luck, Cindy - let us know how it goes!

Things you need to know about working as an Order Processor at Hallmark’s Liberty Distribution Center:

The 1.7 million square foot distribution center is Climate Controlled and kept at a comfortable temperature year-round, so there will be no excessive temperatures in the summer or winter.

Order Processors (OP’s) are the last individuals to touch our product before it gets to the retailers. The OP will fill retail orders using a variety of pick mediums, so flexibility is key in this role.

Answer to Cashier Job questions

Actions speak louder than words sometimes. First things first: Dress like you would as if you were going to a holiday gathering. No suit and tie necessary, just a nice, unripped unstained shirt (T-shirt is fine, shirt with a collar and 3 buttons, even better, in my opinion! ). Nice, unripped, unstained jeans are fine. Clean sneakers are fine, since that's what you'll most iikely be wearing while at work! Be 5-10 minutes early. This will show your accountibility. Write a list of questions you might want to ask, because your interviewer WILL ask you if you have any questions, and having a list ready will help "jog your memory". Taking notes (ie: work policies, procedures, etc) Is also very helpful. Concentrate on the questions being asked, so the interviewer, sees that that you pay attention when people speak, and to detail (is: making sure you only scan each item once!). Lastly, be friendly and respectful! Good luck!!
