An employee in your department has been coming to work 20 minutes late for the past week. The rest of the employees have picked up the slack so far, but everyone is becoming angry. What should you do?

Practice answering the following question from Section 1 of the Walmart Retail Pre-Employment Assessment:

  1. An employee in your department has been coming to work 20 minutes late for the past week. The rest of the employees have picked up the slack so far, but everyone is becoming angry. What should you do?
  2. Explain to the employee how being late hurts the department's ability to get things done and that she can help by getting to work sooner.
    Warn the employee that you will speak to the supervisor the next time she is late.
    Tell the employee that it's unfair to everyone when she comes in late.
    Bring up lateness in the next department meeting.

When answering this question on the Walmart Retail Pre-Employment Assessment, answer honestly. Indicate the response that most accurately represents your personal experience. The instructions for the assessment are clear when they state:

"Please be sure the work you submit is your own. Do not seek or accept help in answering the questions on the assessment."
