I did not come here with the intention of staying. My idea was to stay just long enough to gain experience that will help me find something better. However, I’m not happy with how much I’ve managed to learn here so far. How did you expand your... — read more
My mother works here and they recently cut her hours. Even as a full-timer, she could barely pay the bills, and now it's going to get even harder. I wonder how often it happens that Walmart adds hours back to schedule again? I believe this does... — read more
Before I came here, I was prepared for the worst because I knew what kind of company I was coming to. However, it turned out to be even worse than that. I really won't be able to continue working for several people for much longer. Management is... — read more
No group is in more need of union representation than the abused work force of this abusive company. Sam Walton called management by intimidation "chicken management", but that is the only method those currently in charge of running this company... — read more
What positions will be eliminated in the 1st quarter? When will they actually tell the stores?
I am a manager wanting to put in my notice. I also want to stay long enough to collect my bonus. Does anyone know the exact date of the end of fiscal year? I was told you have to be there through the 4th of Feb since the 31st falls in that week. Does... — read more
Colleagues who have repeatedly said that they will not take the vaccine and that they will find another company that does not require vaccination, where are they now? They are still working at Walmart, only became vaccinated in the meantime. .. — read more
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments today on the vaccine mandate. As reported in a recent poll, most people in the US believe we should be able to make our own decisions on vaccinations. But, in the same poll, those same people also said that in... — read more

When is this suppose to start?
Is there anybody here from one of the stores that recently closed temporarily for COVID-19 cleaning? Considering how little attention is spent on day-to-day cleaning at my store, I'm just wondering if there is actual, deep-cleaning done while the... — read more
If so, to what extent?
Regardless - how does it work? What are the categories, what do they actually mean/benefit and is there a quota system?
Why are new people taking so long to learn registers? What is so complicated about them? I'm not talking weeks, but months (if they decided to stay that long.) That is not quantum physics, it's the freakin' register! I guess the hiring pool is... — read more
Now, of course, I regret not leaving before the holiday season. The worst thing I could've done to myself was to stay and wait a little longer. I literally already feel squeezed. I've been here for five years and if I compare the holiday seasons... — read more

Now that AP ASM's have been transitioned to AP Operations Coaches I'm curious to know what everyone has heard about the ACC Manager's fate?
You don't have to work there. You really don't, not when so many employers are struggling to find employees. This place is a nightmare, everybody knows that. Other places will pay you more for significantly less hassle - and you might even end up... — read more
I think it’s all over but the crying now. Federal Appeals court reinstated President Brandon’s vaccine mandate. a small summary: “A federal appeals court has reinstated the Biden administration's vaccine and testing requirement for private... — read more
As long as the Walnuts remain majority shareholders I don't look for us to see a similar outpouring of concern for the workers here. All Alice and the gang care about is another yacht, private jet, or mansion. We need a union. Period.
It's mostly an anti-union tactic. .. read://https_www.bloomberg.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bloomberg.com%2Ffeatures%2F2021-free-college-through-tuition-assistance-guild%2F%3Fsrnd%3Dpremium
We're treated way worse than they are. We could do the same! Right now they need us more than we need them. How do we make this happen so they'll quit treating us like garbage??
Well, it’s roughly 4 weeks until the vaccine deadline hits. If you don’t remember, this is what happened: The newly released rules, issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration under the Labor Department, apply to businesses with... — read more
Are DCs Grocery and General still really behind? Are they low on labor?
Can we look back at Wal-Marts decision to create centralized teams, especially the horrid Demand Team and how it’s crushed Walmart and our home office structure? I’ve never seen us hold onto such a bad decision due to people not owning being totally... — read more
Restructuring of the Vision Centers likely coming soon. VCAM role being rolled out more widely, licensed VCM’s being demoted to LDO, and, depending on the sales volumes of the VC, unlicensed VCM’s given the choice to either be demoted to VC... — read more
The stock is now worth 10% less than it was 12 months ago today. I think it's hilarious that all those stock options the big wigs have are getting more worthless every day. If they keep making d-mb decisions this pig could get cut in... — read more

I wonder how many pharmacy managers would have been glad to testify about the pressure they were under by their Market Manager to get their prescription volume up at the time these prescriptions were filled. I wonder how many were told to fill them... — read more
But it seems to me that most of them would not be able to do the work they are very critical of when someone else does it. The work of a critic is easy. Those managers who are really capable, they know all the challenges of a certain job and that... — read more

This is a master thread about Walmart layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Frustration here is growing. I don't understand how it is possible for a boss to ask of an employee what he himself cannot do? Taking responsibility is one of those things. For everything that person does wrong, he always blames someone else. We... — read more
