drives me a bit crazy with it's "policies" . . .
I caught some sort of kootie . . . have a lowgrade fever, joints are aching, coughing up stuff that . . . well, the stuff coming out of my lungs & nose would make for a worthy science fair project . . . I am in the early stages of whatever I have, does not warrant going to a doctor but as well seeing I work in the Bakery with food Walmart made it clear if you have an cold/illness you should not come into work . . . logically for concern of contamination of products as well as making others ill . . . makes sense right? mmmmm, yes it does UNTIL you have to call in ill . . . you have to call a 1-800 number . . . it sounds silly but truth be told this covers the employee really smartly, this way if your store says you never called in you have the 1-800 number & confirmation code to help back you up . . . after putting in all the numbers they require you too ( & let me tell you there is quite a few ) they then transfer you to your store . . . where once they answer the phone ( it can take up to 15 minutes for this at the store I work ) you then need to speak to a member of management . . . I was very Blessed today to speak to one of the more better Managers but yet after telling her I would not be in & explaining why I was told this would be an "unexcused absence" . . . . ??? ??? . . . what? I called the 1-800 number, I got my confirmation code, I spoke to management, I even called out 6 hours before I was scheduled . . . yes, but it is still considered an "unexcused absence" . . . ???? what ????? . . .
You are only allowed 3 absences within a year period . . . mmmm, okay . . . I have been working here since Feb. & it was in May when I had to call out due to my husband having not an agreeable moment with the meds the doctors had him on . . . so this is my second absence & I have germs . . . . . . I know they have policies to protect themselves & the employees but sometimes . . mmmm-mmmm-mmmmmm
No less then 10 minutes after calling Walmart I got a call from Walmart . . . this time from my Bakery Manager who asked if I was coming in . . . ?? ?? . . . re-explained to her . . . she said "Oh well I had permission to call you in early due to we are possibly closing the store early today" . . . communication is not a key factor with Walmart
( the store may be closing early due to Hurricane Irene sending a bit of nasty weather our way )
God, Your flawless character and wonderful name always perfectly provide for all my needs. Your name is above every other, and I praise You forever! Amen
