Walmart employee here. How do I report another employee for unethical behavior? I mean, my store uses phrases like "zero tolerance policy" and "open doors" but can I really trust them? In retail, no one gives a shit about you. I more or less expect the same treatment from the higherups.
Basically last night, a customer pulled me aside and told a long-winded story. I know all too well the desire for someone to just fucking listen to what I have to say, so, I stopped to listen. Only I was still on the clock and I needed to go clock out for the day. 10 minutes later one of the CSMs makes me ring her up. That didn't seem right. But she, in the past, has been one of those people to keep asking me to work on my time off. Or, asking when I start. Or, asking when I'm in next. But I rung her up quickly because she was my fucking manager, not just anyone else.
Those I could handle, but, then I had another employee (a fellow cashier) come up to my lane. My light was off. She was forcing me to ring her up as well.
>"But [my name] I work here!"
>"It's my lunch break!"
She wasn't being nice about it either. I told her that I was closed and my light was off. I would've helped her if she wasn't having such mean and forceful tones. But it was already the end of a bad day. Just one unfortunate event after another and I was very worn down and pissed off. I should've walked away but I didn't. Grabbed the frozen meal out of her hands, adamantly said $2.50, yanked the money away from her and put it in the till. She fucking forced me but I shouldn't have done it.
Ethical/unethical? What should my course of action be?
