No more Walmart culture

Lipstick on a pig doesn't change the pig. And for all of those interns who came & left due to the disgust of even thinking of working at Walmart- well to each their own. All that glitters is not gold but if you have been in the dream world of a... read more

Just let go!

This company is ridiculous! I have given 19 years to this place and was told today my role had been eliminated. Leadership has NO empathy for their people. What a disgrace this company has become!

Layoffs is the "New Way of Working"

Doug made it clear in an HR quarterly meeting that layoffs will continue & basically said if you cannot accept that, you need to go somewhere else. HR has the lowest AES scores across the company. We get blamed for all the layoffs even though we just... read more

Can people post layoff info on here?

Does anyone have information on layoffs? It'd be nice to know if co managers are going to be laid off. I'm not sure why other stuff needs to be on this site. I'm more concerned about if I will have a job tomorrow.

Government to Break Up Amazon

It's time to break Amazon up and I think the regulators realize this now... Amazon treated the book industry the same way we handled the territories into which we decided to expand - use massive amount of capital to lower prices, destroy anyone who... read more
