As a temporary front end worker until I recover, all I have to say is WOW at some of the situations front end workers put up with. I have been verbally abused by customers almost on a daily basis, despite doing my best to provide great customer service, and I have about 4-6 different managers asking me to assist, lift, push, pull, and grab things, despite my injury, and even my arm being in a sling. This is not to mention the harassment I face from upper management for having filed the accident report. I am definitely receiving the cold shoulder. Even when I recover, I have to wonder, at 23 years old, is working for a job which barely covers my base expenses, worth winding up in a sling over, with potential for further injury if I get thrown back into the receiving area? I have read a few comments from previous walmart workers, and their experience with injury on the job. I definitely know where those folk are coming from now.
Thanks again for the support!!
