It happened again

I swear that I must be cursed. Last night was my first night at Wal Mart. It was one of the worst nights of work I have ever had. The amazing thing is that it mirrored my first night at Target 3 and 1/2 years ago. I thought I would never experience that tortuous feeling again. Guess I was wrong. I thought I was going to be a stocker at Target and the next thing I know I'm in the backroom. The good thing is that I was so attrocious they pulled me out of the backroom and put me on the stocking team. I guess my attitude most have been bad because halfway through the night this guy came up and started talking to me. I guess it was apparent that I hated backroom. I ended up talking to the boss. She kind of talked to me like I was retarded. She wondered why I didn't know I was going to be in the backroom. She asked if I had read the packet. I told her I did and that's when I started to really think something was off. I kept trying to tell her that I don't like backroom and I don't think she understood. She kept saying that I hadn't even learned how to do it yet. I told her that I had done it before and I didn't want to do it again.


Apparently I had applied to be a backroom person. In the descriptions they gave on the website there certainly wasn't anything that led me to believe that's what I was applying for. If there was I would have never applied. Throughout orientation I knew something was off, but I wasn't sure what. The initial description would have me believe that I was a stocker. Even some of the things I was told led me to believe that. Then I found that a couple of guys I was in orientation with had Sales Floor on their tags. When someone asked what they did their response was that they were a stocker. Since when have Sales Floor people been stockers? During orientation they made us take courses over everything under the sun. If it would have been narrowed down to backroom info I'm sure I would have picked up on it immediately. Instead they had me doing courses on things like the register.


I was told to go into my preferences on the computer and change what job I wanted. That would get me out of my current job. The stupid system won't let you do that unless you're clocked in. I had just clocked out so I had no way to fix it. The woman that is over the thing talked to me like I was stupid. I guess she's just a wonderful person because she talked to the other people in there like they were stupid too. Stupid company in their efforts to fix a system that probably wasn't broke in the first place have created a monstrosity. Their job descriptions are jacked up, as are their company policies, and clocking in procedures.


If they don't put me somewhere else I'm walking.

That Sucks!!!!

Did you put on the application for job description (ANYTHING)?

That's when they give you the shit detail!!!


I thought I had made it clear in my application that I wanted to be a stocker. I read their descriptions on the website and nothing I read made me think I was going to be in the backroom.


Get outta retail...go to D.C.-apply for a job at the white house.Im sure that f**ker Obama would be more than willing to pay you a mint for trimming the white house lawn...


I'll just tell it like it is. I f*ing hate retail. My work history isn't exactly wonderful so I applied where I thought I'd have a chance of employment. I was hoping this would be a temporary thing that would help propel me to something I could succeed at. Unless they get their crap together and fast I'll be gone. I'm not going to deal with the headache that is backroom.

In the 7 days I have worked at Wal-Mart I have bounced around quite a bit. 2 days of training, 1 day of backroom, 1 day on cereal, 2 days on baking, and 1 day on water. I don't quite understand it. At this point in time a job is a job. I'll do my best and hopefully I'll survive. In July I'll be headed back to Oklahoma. Hopefully by that time I'll know where I want to be and how to get there. Surely I can survive Wal-Mart for 5 months :unsure:.

    • 14th September Bad Reputation release... Already storming up the U.S. Billboard singles chart — currently at No. 8 with a bullet - MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY was written by vocalist FREDDY CURCI and guitarist STEVE DeMARCHI (both formerly of Canadian band ‘Sheriff') who also produced the track with the assistance of Rick Neigher (Vixen, Tim Karr) Available on 7", 12" cassette and CD single, all formats feature SAY WHAT I WANT TO SAY which, like MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY, is taken from the band's eponymous debut album due to be released on November 26th. The 12 includes the track WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? with the CD single additionally featuring CALL ME — these two cuts will not be available on the forthcoming album. (Nota Bene from Bad Reputation: Now they are !)   CURCI and DeMARCHI have already enjoyed their share of the spotlight as former members of 'Sheriff' who achieved a good deal of success in the early 80 s. After Sheriff' disbanded the two went their separate ways for a while before eventually meeting up again and buying a 16-track studio, which they duly installed in DeMARCHI’s basement, They then began working on some music while holding on to a succession of day jobs. In the midst of putting a demo tape together, they were suddenly catapulted back into the public eye via the success of an old 'Sheriff' tune, 'When I’m With You which rocketed up to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart, eventually selling over 500, 000 copies. "We couldn't believe it,” says DeMARCHI. "Here we were, with a number one song, but no tour, no video, and not even a band! " ' Although the idea of ALIAS had already been discussed, the project shifted up a gear with the success of 'When I 'm With You' , CURCI and DeMARCHI had been planning to record an album together after the demise of 'Sheriff' , but both realised they would much rather be in a 'band' situation.While recording in Los Angeles, they crossed paths with drummer MICHAEL DEROSIER who had been in the original line-up of 'Heart' and who proved to be attracted to the idea of being in a band again. DEROSIER then brought in STEVE FOSSEN on bass and guitarist ROGER FISHER, who were also originally founder members of 'Heart'. Thus united, the members of ALIAS are looking forward to the release of both the debut single and the album. The band have recently completed a successful tour of Canada and are currently supporting 'REO Speedwagon ' on their U.S. tour. Additionally, the band is plotting an international concert tour which will hopefully include dates in the U.K.Says DeMARCHI, "We 've been dying to play live again. The feeling of being out on the road, no matter how small the stage, is the best in the world, There's nothing like being in front of a drummer and feeling that bass drum in your stomach. It's f *** ing great! " Say What I Wanna Say Haunted Heart Waiting For Love The Power Heroes What To Do After All The Love Is Gone More Than Words Can Say One More Chance True Emotion Standing In The Darkness       Bonus Tracks Who Do you Think You Are? Call Me Into The Fire When I’m With You (Acoustic version)
