I was a longtime TM, I reapplied (not to the store where I used to work) for a seasonal position at one store and a permanent position at another. And rejection. I was at Spot for a number of years. I left my store on good terms less than a year ago.

What happened? Did their hiring standards get strict these days?

Any of our old TMS had to adapt to modernization and those who didn't or refused left. Have you called HR to ask them?

the HR at the Walmart said she had to go through 300 applications.
I always list my felonies as achievements. Is that wrong?

Anyways, probably low hours as many have said. Standards are not up. Distribution Centers used to do a physical test. Lift a box. Step up. Step down. Now we take sight unseen senior citizens and put them in the Outbound wing & wonder why the fail is so strong.

Progress!

No. List misdemeanors first, then the felonies. You want to build up to a crescendo.

Do they warn about mandatory overtime when they hire?

Overtime in the store is never mandatory and is rarely offered. In the DC though, yes, it is very frequent and talked about during orientation.

Yeah I didn't even get interviewed. I applied online, then a couple weeks later got a random email with an offer letter. I was confused but happily accepted the job.
