I was with Walmart for 10 years. I started full-time on the floor in Domestics in 2009, then Domestics & Housewares were combined so I handled both.
Then I took a cut to part-time to get in to work on the floor in pharmacy & soon after was given full-time there & we'd help cashier in the pharmacy when the Techs were busy & there was a line.
I was offed the opportunity to become a Tech in 2014 & in 2015 I tested and passed the National Certification test, as required by Walmart.
I've always had excellent reviews, my customer service was/is top notch because of my past work experience working as a waitress, bartender, nurses aide, and catering staff, which are all customer/patent centered. My attendance was stellar, my speed & accuracy was stellar, AND I even traveled to other pharmacies that were short on Tech staff, but yet the computer chose me to layoff, rather than the Techs in our pharmacy that had customer complaints & attendance issues. 2 separate outlying pharmacies were expecting my help 2 days after the layoff, and Walmart didn't even bother to let them know I wouldn't be there since I was 1 of the "chosen" to let go from the pharmacy.
I am crushed! :'-( I'm currently working self check & cashiering since we are not allowed to work in any of the Walmart pharmacies unless we are hired into a position at another Walmart pharmacy & I have until August 30th to find another position, or I will be let go & get 1 week severance for each year I've been a Walmart employee.
I put in transfer requests to pharmacies within a 1 hour drive area & contacted the Pharmacy Managers to let them know I was let go & see if they had any full-time Tech openings- all of them said they'd absolutely hire me if they had openings, but unfortunately they did not.
I don't appreciate being let go because of a computer algorithm that ignores who I am, my work history, and my stellar reviews & costumer service, yet keeps lower quality Techs.
