Could it be argued that there is a logic to protecting a family business or family-owned enterprise by populating the upper management ranks with trusted family and friends? However, the consequences of nepotism in the workplace are vast and far outweigh the benefits, if any.If a company is publicly-traded, flagrant nepotism also breaches the company’s obligation to its shareholders.
I rescently interviewed with Walmart about a regional cable technician position.They cuss so much I have a headache working aroung them-Even if there are customers they cuss.The thing i cant tolerate the most is how they treat walmart property by throwing it,throwing it from one isle to another-They claim to have an open door policy however when I complained I was the one sent home-I feel like I am in a twighlight zone however I need to work and hopefully walmart will see that these girls are not true assets to the company-plus I have never been a quiter!! I was not fired and have no intention of ever returning.Best advice I can give to new employees: work hard, be extra friendly to co-workers and management, and DONT GOSSIP because that will get you in a lot of trouble.I am a 3 month employee at a very new walmart-Since I have started I have suffered lots of abbuse-I refuse to quit because the two girls creating the most drama wants that.I pray things will get better, I love the work I do I jut hope I can find away to accept and deal with these issues-Thank you for listening I have been a licensed real estate broker and former owner of a RE/MAX office. With the state of the economy, I took a part-time job at Walmart to fill a gap in the real estate business. However, if anyone is thinking of going there for employment, run for your life!!! If you are not a person who is strong of character, Walmart will beat you down.
