Walmart May 8, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — jillmariekk @ 1:26 am

I recently learned that a High School Diploma or GED is NOT required to work at Walmart Stores. I have to say that I am outraged. I know that some people had some situations in where they were not able to finish school. However to land a job with a major company like Walmart, should not be allowed. I would of expected more from Walmart. They should want their associates to better themselves with an education. A GED at the least should be required.

I am a sales floor associate in apparel. I recently learned that the stores fitting room associate makes more per hour than I do. I have a high school education and some college education. The associate making more than I do, DOES NOT have a GED or high school dipolma. Am I wrong to think that this is unfair?

 

So FRUSTRATED!!! February 13, 2012

Hello everybody,

Today I am so frustrated more than ever with a couple of companies.

1. Dish Network. I had the cheapest of packages. Dish America. It had just enough channels to keep me occupied while on my days off. I loved watching GMC, Gospel Music Channel. We they suddenly decided that it was going to be a “free preview” for about a month (it was posted on their website apparently), then the channel disappeared. They moved it to a higher package. I called them in absolute rage. They said well its been a free preview for a month and now you have to upgrade to get it again… umm… I said, ” **ck you! ”

Paul has been itching for the Speed Channel so he can watch all the NASCAR shows. We happen to look it up this morning to see what package it’s in. I planned on upgrading it for Valentines day so he can stop pestering me.. lol… While browsing the Dish Network site this morning, I discovered they are running a “free preview” of the Travel Channel now thru the end of the month, then they are taking that channel away from me too…. I mean seriously. Your that kind of company??? I hate Dish Network.

2. Petsmart. When we moved in, I purchased a bag of 9 Lives cat food for Buddy and Scatter. I had a coupon so that was the 1st bag of food they ate while living alone with us. By the end of the bag, I saw such a difference in the boys’ coat. It was shiny and thick. Buddy didn’t have much hair on his backside and it was thin and patchy. He grew all his hair back!!!! He looked sooooo good! When my grandparents visited, they couldn’t believe how soft and shiny their coat was. I told my grandmother, “9 lives!, That’s all I feed them”..

I received an email from Petsmart this morning. They will no longer be selling 9 Lives at Petsmart stores and online. WTF? Thats ok, I work at Walmart and they carry 9 Lives, I also receive my associate discount of 10% off a bag. So, SEE YA Petsmart. I don’t need to shop with you anymore!!!!

Good news, Walmart has cat food on sale this week for $8.97 a bag. Paul is already sitting in front of the TV enjoying our recently upgraded Dish Network Package. Its Speed Channel from here on out…

What are some companies that have frustrated you lately?

 

Its been a while! January 23, 2012

I am so sorry everybody! Its been a long time! This is long overdue.

So much has happened and changed. Christmas has come and gone. A visit home after Christmas was good. The cold of the century is finally over. A promotion has come and gone. “Friends” are gone. Wow, I feel like a lost a lot! But I have gained a few things..  I will soon be working in a new area all the time and its pretty much drama free. I’m thinking about going back to school. I think I have finally realized that a career at Walmart is not really in the cards for me. They have great options for going back to school and discounted tuition so I think I better get cracking.

The only problem is I cannot seem to decide what I want to do when I grow up! I have a good idea, but is it the right choice?? If you look at me and my personality, what career do you see me in?

I need your imput please 🙂

 

 

will you ever grow up? October 23, 2011

If you don’t already know, no matter where you work, or what you do, there will be drama. The only time there wasnt drama in my (many) places of employment was with the Census Bureau.  BUT, I worked with mostly older adults and they were well above trash talking and lying.

So what do you do when you are being deliberately targeted for lies? It’s to the point where I just have to turn a blind eye and ignore it. I cannot keep stressing about it because the childish ladies will never grow up.

Here are some really funny things that I am accused of:

I am out to steal everybody’s job.

I talk about EVERYBODY and trash talk constantly.

I rat you out to management for stealing food and beverages. (hilarious)

Obviously some people are worried about losing their positions at the company if they are out to get me in trouble constantly. If you are confident in your work performance, you wouldn’t go OUT of your way to start rumors and make things up, would you?

Well, that’s just another day in the life of me 🙂 Tomorrow is another day, and another chance at success.. hopefully.

 

new haircut October 20, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — jillmariekk @ 10:25 pm

As you all know, I have a bit of an obsession with my hair. Occasionally I have a bad hair day, but most of the time, it has to look just right.

Since moving to Georgia, I have had to find a new stylist. Working at Walmart and not really knowing any other cheap places around town, I decided to get my hair cut at Smart Style inside Walmart. My first cut was back in the beginning of September. I hadn’t had my hair cut since March. The poor girl had quite a work out just brushing my hair. She took of 3 inches and thinned it out. It felt GREAT! For 2 weeks. It went right back to thick and long.

The days are getting cooler and less humid, so I’ve been blow drying my hair almost everyday. I think 10 mins of solid high heat is pretty bad for my hair , so it was hair cut time again.

I returned to Smart Style with a picture on my iPhone of the cut I wanted. Amanda my new stylist is awesome. She has done a great job both times. She almost died when she say how thick it was already! Of course she has sold me on yet another product. Designline Enchanted Products. They smell amazing, enriched with diamonds, gold flakes and pearls! My hair feels so good and smells amazing! I will definitely be back on November 1st when they have the holiday gift sets containing a shampoo, conditioner and shimmer spray for just $20!

Just want to share with all of you how pleased I am with this salon.
