I was working at the local WalMart for almost a year and a half (10 days shy of it actually) when I was called into the asset protection office. I have no idea why they might call me into that particular office, since I hadn't stolen anything, so Im thinking they have 'proof' that I did.
Turns out, I was getting fired for 'pointing out'. The manager that was in there with me pulled up the record of my attendance, and the last time I had been late/missed and gotten a point was about TWO MONTHS before then (this was happening on 5/1/15). If I had pointed out already by that time, why not tell me then, and not TWO MONTHS later?
Apparently I wasn't the only one to possibly get screwed over- manager said there were at least 10 other people that were gonna get called in.
Another thing- there was an employee in my 'department' that was constantly not doing his work, managers knew about it, other associates knew it...Yet he kept his job for nearly a month after I was fired (something to do with a lunch break finally did him in. I don't know the details)
