    Default I'm probably getting fired today

    So I'm probably getting fired today.
    Apparently there's an "investigation" going on from the night of black Thursday of an associate who possibly accepted money from a costumer to get a place in line.. Apparently they think I'm the alleged associate that was doing the transaction.

    Like really? I was in the least dense crowded portion of the store that day (rear bathrooms/hiring kiosk area) and I in no way shape or form received any type of money. I have a photographic memory and I walked them through my entire day. From the time I went at 8 to time I left at 8 pm, but They kept saying there were others that are being investigated however they kept pointing it to me being "that associate". Apparently it's serious cause I was being damn near interrogated by an HR member, store manager and the marketing dude.

    Smh I know how these stories go anyways, I'm innocent but I'll end up losing my job anyways somehow. It's tragic. I followed every policy including the "never point, but take them" rule we tend to forget after a few weeks of working..I even made myself look like an A hole when I'm obviously defending a store policy and a manager just says "let them do it anyways"..

    I can't believe this.

    Retail companies have no souls these days. Talk about a costly waste of trained human labor just to save face in front of a single customer. Bad management if you ask me.

    That's awful. I've never worked in retail, so I have no idea the type of shit you go through, but I hear shitty stories all the time. I'm sorry you're going through that. I hope everything works out for you.

    "The office" level shit... It should be pretty easy for them to find out if the story checks out or not, what a bunch of wankers.

    Sorry man.

    Stay frosty.

    War-Mart probably won't fire an employee without proof.
    Just contact your district manager.

    If you get fired. Sue them.
