The class action lawsuit claims that the Assistant Store Managers engaged in a finite set of non-exempt tasks throughout their shift, including greeting customers, handling customer service requests and customer service complaints, answering phone calls, taking inventory, receiving product shipments, assisting in the merchandising operation, printing out reports and providing the reports to upper management, unlocking safes, counting money for the cash register, conducting safety inspections by walking the store aisles, processing merchandise returns, operating the customer care center, return desks and self check-out areas. The Complaint also alleges that the Assistant Store Managers spent almost no time supervising other employees working for Wal-Mart.
