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:.

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
