My daugher is no longer 16 now she is 17. She was fired in September 2015 and we are fighting this.
At the time of her termination she was 16 and I was a single mom. This is no longer true as I am now remarried and she us 17.

My daughter 16 was recently fired from Walmart. The reason was because she did not have a doctor's note when she called in sick.
You see you are allowed to four points in six months. Then after two more points they automatically fire you. The points count when you do not have doctor's note. My daughter only called in sick once when she was not sick but that was because she had a friend's birthday party to go to and she forgot to book it off.
Then she had an ear infection and the doctor gave her a note since she already had five points and one more point would mean that she would lose her job. She apparently lost the doctor's note and they fired her. She came home crying because she was very proud of her job. We went back to the doctor and explained about her losing the doctor's note.
She was charged $30 again for the doctor's note. I presented this to the manager and he told me that she was not only fired for losing the doctor's not but for allowing her friends to use her employee discount which she was signed a form saying she would not do this and if she did she would be fired. Mind you she is only 16 years old and if she signed anything I should have been there if she signed anything. The manager just does not seem to like teenagers.
Sometimes my daughter's friends come to the store while she is working and the manager told her she is not allowed to socialize while on the clock. Well technically her friends are customers. Also when one of my daughter's friends were riding inside the cart while the other was pushing it the same manager that fired my daughter told her friend to get out of the shopping cart because it was for merchandise only. What about babies then?
Besides she was not in the seat meant for babies she was in the seat that was for merchandise. Two employees have a grudge against her and reported to the management that she is talking with her friends when they come. Her friends did not come to chat, they came to shop. This means that they are customers as well.
Then after they hired my daughter they hired this other girl in her school who is a year older. My daughter and her don't get along. I don't get along with her mother. Anyways one day they were both arguing on the sales floor and the manager took them both to the office and talked to them.
He should have fired that girl on the spot since she was the one that instigated the whole thing. He told them both that they are to keep their differences aside while on the sales floor and while on break. My daughter was employed first so she should have been fired or not scheduled when she was scheduled. Anyways i wrote a review earlier on and someone has been posting as me trying to make me look ***.
They made posts such as I am only fighting for my daughter because of guilt. Because I drank while pregnant with her and it caused developmental delays and birth defects. This is not true. I am fighting for her because I am a parent and that is what parents do.
I was bashed for standing up for my daughter. I was told I was treating my daughter like she is in kindergarden and to back off. As a parent I will not do this. I am not defending her because of guilt.
I am defending her because she is my daughter and that is what a parent does. Another lie that someone else posted against me by pretending to be e is that they claimed another reason that I am defending my daughter is because I got drunk and beat her when she was a child and she was put into a foster home. This never happened. CPS was never involved in my life.
My lawyer advised me to remove my original review and to not post on this site. I first thought that someone was got into my account. Then I realized that when you post under anonymous you can post under any username. That is how the person was pretending to be me.
Notice all my posts are in blue font and can be clicked. The person pretending to be me their posts are under black font and you cannot click on their username.
So if any posts are in black font they are from the person pretending to be me. Blue font means posts are from me.
Reason of review: employee treatment.
