Walmart worker resigns over loud speaker, " F-k this job."



Snip< "Attention Walmart shoppers and associates, my name is Beth from electronics," Beth McGrath said over the store’s PA system. "I’ve been working at Walmart for almost five years and I can say that everyone here is overworked and underpaid."

Snip< "I’m tired of the constant gaslighting," McGrath went on to say. "This company treats their elderly associates like s–t. To Jarred, our store manager, you’re a pervert. Greta and Kathy, shame on y'all for treating our associates the way you do. I hope you don’t speak to your families the way you speak to us.

They treat staff with some respect. And it shows!

The staff of the two local warehouses would be happy to welcome this hero to the team. Especially in electronics (occasionally unstaffed when I visit).

I was always afraid of burning bridges. I admire the woman from Walmart, and hope she finds a better job asap.

55. Same here.

I had a smart, hard-working friend (sadly now deceased) who got treated like garbage there.

She’d drive a long way to do her shift, and a couple of times a week they’d tell her, “Oh, we don’t need you today after all.”

And they’d always make sure she was just a few hours shy of qualifying for full-time benefits like paid time off and health insurance. She was just one of many getting the same kind of treatment. Truly a toxic work situation.

I’ve shopped there twice in my life, both times when I had a minor automotive emergency in an area where that was the only option for buying a battery or a tire. Hope to stay out of there the rest of my life.

She had a binder full of documents she was going to turn over to a reporter from the NY Times. On her way to meet with the journalist, she was bumped from behind and run off the road. She struck a culvert and died at the scene. The binder of documents was never recovered.

35. Just so everyone understands.

The fall of Wal-Mart would hurt us all terribly. Even lethally. Perhaps gradual rehabilitation could bring about reform without disaster. But that would require a firm and thoughtful hand at the helm. Fat chance!

First we need to find the helm.......... Then build a scaffold for executing abusive Wal-Mart managers. The threat alone should inspire some civility and respect for associates.

51. My point is that in some communities there is no other source of groceries and dry goods.

They ran all the competition off just about everywhere Americans lived. They did so by undercutting ALL their competition. Much of America is TOTALLY addicted to their proximity and prices. Cold turkey will kill us. So until there are other sources there is nothing to do about them These facts don't change because the Waltons are pigs.

Tell the employer that advice. They seem to be creating the problem. Walmart does seem to have the reputation as one of the least least employee friendly employers in general, although I am sure there are exceptions to that sentiment sometimes.
