It's about shareholders

This is not a company that cares or values their employees, the people on the front lines making them their 121 billion. It's about their shareholders, failing business deals and being on top. All the talented a nd well seasoned employees will leave... —  read more

Coming from the other side of the layoff. I just want to say the grass is greener. I know a lot of store managers like me that have dedicated their lives, moved their families to other towns or states, worked 12 to 16 hours all the time, usually 6 or... —  read more 

Nobody is safe!

if you made it through the first round of firings, this is NO guarantee you will make it with this company. It's a company that can't be trusted in any way. They can just as easily change their minds or receive commands from great leader that more... —  read more

Former customer

Walmart is the lesser of two evils
