Thread regarding Walmart layoffs

What really determines Core Hours?

The worst associates get consecutive weekend days off. Tenure has no play, open availability apparently doesn't matter, and attendance doesn't ring a bell. The good, tenured, experience associates get c-appy split days off. Apparently, WM wants to get rid of employees that have been around the block and earn a few cents more.

Unfortunately too many people equate tenure with talent. While in a perfect world, those two things would go together 100% of the time, the sad truth is that they seldom do. All too often, tenure equates to doing as little as possible. That's already a problem for Walmart with far too many of their associates. Adding tenure to that mix, wow - what a great idea.

To me, "tenured associate" means two things. 1) Someone that floats along and does the minimum not to get fired. 2) An experienced associates that can slay just about any task they are given in just about any area. Thankfully (and fortunately for management), the store I work at has a lot of the 2nd variety.

Stores would prolapse their anus if it weren't for some of the tenured associates.

Why would 'tenure' matter? If you want 'tenure' to be considered then go find yourself a nice union job somewhere. Wow, you people are precious.

My store manager does our core hours. People lead may or may not be involved depending on your SM.
If you have a fair SM then your in luck. I thankful my SM is very fair.
Our tenure associate use less ppto then the newer and less tenure associates but we are the ones they seemed focused on. When my time comes and it will, I would appreciate a buyout.

Ah. All these years after I'm gone, and I see this issue still continues. Like another B.S. 'policy': the meal violation.

In both cases, you'll hear about how 'this comes from home office, there's nothing we can do'.....and yet, as you stated, some people's scheduling always seem favored over others. With the meal violation there is / was a yellow sheet the associate and manager would sign—I've seen this, tho never benefitted from it—where, if they had gone over the fifth hour before clocking out for their meal break, they wouldn't have to be coached. When confronted about the hyposcrisy of this, one manager angrily spouted 'Needs of the business, don't worry about what other people are doing!!'

Next time a manager lips off about something being a 'policy', tell them to pull it up on the WIRE. Thousand bucks says they can't do it.

Favoritism will N E V E R end. Not at Walmart, not any where.

In theory, needs of the business determines core hours. In reality, no one really knows. It's a dumpster fire wrapped inside a garbage scow surrounded by a radioactive pile of $#!t.

The Home Office wants to get rid of the 'tenured' associates. These are usually the older associates that get paid more and possibly use the benefits more often. In some cases they can use ageism to get rid of an older associate and replace them with 2 associates and still pay less than the 1.
