Walmart ripoff treats employees like s*** Never work or let anyone you love work for Walmart! Bentonville Arkansas
*UPDATE Employee: I agree no one shold work at wal-mart
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Walmart employees are slaves
*Consumer Comment: IT IS NOT PAST THE POINT OF SALE
I have to agree with the lady who worked Walmart I.T. I spent two years in Walmart purgatory along with several friends.
Know this, from the minute that you are hired at Walmart they begin setting you up and building a case to fire you. For example: If you run across a family problem or something that requires you to miss work the managers will tell you everything is O.K. and there will be no consequence, but there always is. Another setup they use is the lawn and garden merchandise they stock in the parking lot. You see, if a customer takes a bag potting in the store and leaves it some employee is required to take it back out to the parking lot. If it is an employee that is on the short list they are fired for shop-lifting. You see, in order to get the merchandise back out to its spot the employee has to take it, "past the point of sale". That constitutes shop-lifting. I have seen it many times. I have also seen employees fired from the snack bar for putting too much popcorn in the "free" bags of popcorn given to children and labelled thieves.
Forget about your family too. Especially if you work 2nd shift in 24hr store. You see, if you work 2nd shift you have to stay until the entire store is zoned (which all merchandise in proper shelf and aligned). I once heard an "associate" told that her babysitting situation was none of Walmart's concern when the employee expressed that she was supposed to pick up her daughter at the babysitter's at 11:00 (the associate asked to go home at 1:00am).
The Walmart I worked for hired a mentally retarded boy to stock the candy isle and paraded him around for years for publicity. About two years ago he was fired and thrown out by the manager because he did not know how to mop a floor.
Never work or let anyone you love work for Walmart!
