I got fired from Walmart about 3 weeks ago for something I know I didn't do. My father is an assistant manager at another Walmart so as his daughter, hired as a cashier, I wanted to be a food employee and be a leader. I was really fortunate to have this job as my manager knew my father so it was great. I was just really confused on how I was terminated and even now, I'm still a little upset by it. I was terminated vecause of a cash shortage of $100. This was the first time I had gotten a warning but they went ahead and terminated me anyway. Knowing what my father told me, I had 4 warnings before termination. I am upset because I know I didn't have a cash shortage, I always made sure to count my money correctly for my CSMS, and made sure to hand customers the correct change. If I happened to do what they said I supposedly did, I would have liked to be shown evidence instead of just being accused of fraud. I'm 18 so I was trying to be responsible. It also upsets my Dad because he actually had to be called but he is disappointed as to why it went straight to terminaton. Plus, my own manager didn't even fire me, another manager did. This job was great, I was only a month away from getting my $10 an hour... and it got taken from me. If I had used all my warnings, they never sent me in to talk about it or to warn me. In my opinion, I feel like they fired me for nothing. My Dad has worked for Walmart for almost 20 years as assistant manager and he has never seen anything like this happen..
I think something was up, like they just wanted me fired. This story is 100% true.
Walmart Pros: Great store, Pricing.
Walmart Cons: Walmart did not abide its own terms and worst customer support, Attitude of customer service.
