Notice question

What kind of a notice is given when the store is slated for closing? Do they let employees know a month or two ahead, or is it just sprung on everybody a few days before the fact? I'm talking about single store closings, not the ones that are... read more

The more that emerges from this...

Severance packet

Anyone else get their fedex packet in the mail? Any surprises? Was interesting to see the associate listing with ages. But it did not include the list of those kept like it said it would. Glad to be away from these toxic f---tards.

Humana

Can someone explain why Walmart wants to overpay for Humana like it overpaid for jet.com? It seems like they want to spend money on everything BUT their brick and mortal retail segment these days.

Metro asm

Has anyone noticed the job listed as metro not non metro?

Excellent point

WalMart is known for building their business with older staff. 1) they wont unionize 2) their wages are low...and 3) uncle sam is already paying their healthcare..NOW if you're amongst a well paid minority of folks (primarily women) who built their... read more

Changes in DSD??

Going to the DEX system? What does this entail? Quicker or slower? What about vendors that don't have DEX, PFS or ASN? Hours/ number of associates changing? Affects Reclamations in what way?

Things aren’t looking so hot!

Imposing duties on imports of those products could spell trouble for some prominent U.S. retailers, including Walmart and BestBuy, which sell products imported from China. One way companies may adapt to tariffs is by raising prices on consumers. A... read more
