kboykb Posted May 12, 2010 Share Posted May 12, 2010 I would like to know how to handle a situation here. I just started working at Wal-mart about 3 1/2 weeks ago as an overnight stocker, and it hasn't been great. First off, I signed for another shift, not third, but I'm stuck on it because they won't change it and I need some income. As a stocker you're given certain "times" that you should finish with your work, and if you do not finish by that time you and the manager will have a talk. Of course with me being new I don't know where everything is, so I struggled with my area for a while (though he was pretty understanding at first). I won't make this a long story, but let's just say my manager has realllyyy been on me, no matter what I do. He's come and "talked" to me over and over, switched me to another area, and I'm still not up to his expectations. The thing is, every time he switches me to another area I have to learn where everything is! I'm not slacking off at work whatsoever. I'm busting my butt trying to stock the products, but when I can't finish on time here he comes. For instance today I was given 2 hours to do my section. Everything was going smoothly until another manager had me do a task that took around 30 minutes, and then once I returned I had to do something else for another manager. I really dislike multiple managers (with one "big" manager) and retail stores. Today I got my first "write-up" ever (including school, lol). How should I feel when I'm actually trying my best and still getting written up? I can understand if I'm slacking, but I'm not. I even skip some of my breaks and stay after work an extra 20-30 minutes to get the job done. *-Also, I will be fair. In *his* eyes he sees a person that is given 2 hours to finish a job and ends up taking 4. I can definitely "see" where the problem lies, but this is not the complete picture. Link to comment
