I work there... Been there on and off for almost a yr!!! WELL today I went to work as usual (Ive been getting AROUND 38 hrs a week) and the Manager called me to the office right after I showed up... and told me...

"Im sorry but we have to cut ur hrs!!" I asked why and she said that They just hired some new people so they had to cut some hrs to accomidate them...

Ok so.. WHY IN THE HELL WOULD U HIRE NEW PEOPLE WHEN U DON'T HAVE ENOUGH HRS TO ACCOMIDATE THEM!?!?!?!

Im SOOO pissed!! I freaking HATE Wal-mart!!! If it wasn't for the fact that NO where else in town if Hiring I would leave!!!! So I may have to give up my Interent soon... Just depends on how long my hrs are cut.. BTW my Manager KNEW I was pissed I was very Short with her and all the managers today!! I wasn't rude but I didn't just Chat it up with them...

OK????

Your hours would most likely pick back up when the holiday season gets closer.  They might be filling positions that need to be filled or getting ready for the holiday season.

well I assume that they have reason for hiring new people to fill in other shoes.

Hope things get better though,.

I worked there two years through college and now my sister is there as a cake decorator. They are doing the same thing here hiring new ones and cutting hours on seasoned employees. Dumb dumb dumb. I wish you lots of luck and hope it gets better.

Well I understand that... BUT ITS JULY!!!! I would understand in like sept or august Like they did last yr.... but NOW!!! and my issue is that In the department im in now we were already OVER staffed and they just hired like 3 new ladies... THATS why My hours got cut... I just don't get it... No one elses got cut.... Kinda Pisses me off.... I haven't miss one day... Never been late... Do my job... (not that hard of a job really... I answer the phones and work at the fitting room) It just really freaking annoying... PLUS their are others there that have been there 3-4 months and THIER hrs didn't get cut... But because they want to train one of the new ladies on my Job I get my hrs cut... Its just really annoying!!

Totally not trying to be disrespectful but while I'm in your post can I ask how much money you start out making at Wal-Mart, I may have to get a second job and that's about all there is around here!

That does suck though, hope it gets better!
