Wal-Mart As A Communist Regime

If you have ever heard me talk about Wal-Mart, you may notice I constantly call it a communist regime. It may have nothing related to communism, but communism is bad and so is employment at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart for me was the most biased and unfair treatment of any kind that I have ever felt in my life. Their policies are extremely ridiculous and their managers have very unrealistic goals. Wal-Mart is, in my opinion, one of the most stressful and unfair places to work.

I had just graduated high school and I wasn’t too interested in going to college. My plan was to enlist into the armed forces after high school, but I took things slow and decided I wanted to make a few bucks first. I had applied for Wal-Mart in late May and very much wanted the job. I called frequently to check on the status of my application and eventually they called me in for an interview. The interview itself took around three hours and I didn’t go home until about two in the morning. On June 10th, I got a call from Wal-Mart asking if there was any way possible I could go in the next day for training; I had been hired at Wal-Mart.

To this day, when I walk into Wal-Mart and come face to face with a manager I once worked under they give me dirty looks. People report that managers will trash talk you to another job that applied for if that job contacts Wal-Mart about you. Wal-Mart has unrealistic workloads for some overnight stockers, their managers aren’t the best in the world, and their policies are harsh. This is why I constantly call Wal-Mart a communist regime; not because it shares the ideals but because it is just bad for everyone in general. Hopefully one day a high positioned power will restore the order and peace that once was Wal-Mart according to the history they teach you in training and that their policies and workloads may become more realistic and doable.
