    Hello,
    I work for WALMART...
    My senerio is last Friday I got called into the office by my Co Manger. So a assistant manager constantly picks with me, if I tell her I am not going to get something done by end of the business day she runs and tells him. Well on Friday I asked her does she believe in GOD b/c he sits high and look low I also TOLD her I think she she has issues with African American people considering the fact she got rid of 3 black people our the appeal department. So my Co Manger tells me that is grounds for automatic termination... I want to know if this true???

    The way you describe it, yes, it is.

    Your question appears to be an inquiry about your employer's policies, not any legal issue. If your employer determines that ranting about "god" and/or accusing a manger of being racist are "grounds for automatic termination," then so be it. However, I doubt anyone here is familiar with your employer's policies, whereas you should be familiar with them, so you tell us.

    Agreed. Walmart can let you go for many reasons you might not like.
    It is easier to lose your job than it is to get it in the first place.

    my first suggestion is to delete the name of the employer. They are NOT one to want you to be spreading any company business on the internet.

    Secondly, I suggest that you work on your people skills. No matter what she is doing, you allowed her to bait/goad you into something that could get you terminated. If you felt she was discriminating due to race, you should have made that complaint to HR/corporate/your boss.

    and in the end what you did could be grounds......

    Also, I noted that your post says that you "work for [employer name omitted]" (present tense), not that you worked for the employer (past tense).

    If you still work there, then that fact, by itself, compels a negative answer to the question you asked. Right?

    So, if you tell another manager you aren't going to finish some task during your shift, why would you think the one you tell shouldn't share that with the other manager? Just as a practical matter, that other manager would want to know what is and is not being completed. Either way, the solution is simple; stop telling Manager A what you are working on, or tell Manager B yourself if you aren't going to be able to complete your work.

    Regardless, snarky remarks about deities and accusations of racism based on nothing more than 3 employees being terminated for reasons you don't disclose and may not know is not the path to career longevity.
