Topics regarding layoffs at Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
I've been employed by WM Canada for 6 years. I started as an hourly (minimum wage) associate at the "front end" (cashier) even though that was not the job I applied for online. It took two years of applying for everything on the "wire" before I was... read more
Starting Monday, 5/15, 1/2 of all US Co-Mgrs are gone!
Walmart is in big trouble. Massive changes in retail and new competition require new thinking and innovation that I have yet to see at Walmart. Walmart would have to lay off 90% of their store associates in order to maintain the bottom line. Maybe... read more
It seems the personnel coordinator position has been saved for the moment, but has anyone heard anything about the training coordinator position??? With the academy and the new orientation program it sure looks as if the writing is on the wall
Recent new store structure called for a reduction in co-managers and assistants in Canada. Our store had to move out an assistant manager to make room for a co that had to "step down" as we had one too many. The trouble is he is still acting like a... read more
Rumor mill is stating Walmart is not done with the layoffs.... Thousands more layoffs to come for HO Bentonville. I suppose time will tell. May be time to think about going elsewhere.
The thing about Walmart associates especially tenured ones is that they are very very loyal. They "bleed blue". They've dedicated their careers to this company. Poured their hearts and souls into building it up to the company it is today. I saw... read more
It's in the news. The Trump administration is examining and vowing to curb the rampant mis-use of the H1B visa program that was flooding the US job market with cheap labor from India. In ISD we have more H1B holders (associates) than you think. Then... read more
I worked in the IT (ISD) department for about 9 years. It is full of wonderful and knowledgeable people who know how to do what they do. Here was the problem, nothing new could come about because of our the associates unwilling to allow or think... read more
The fight between e-commerce and Homeoffice will end in the destruction of the company. You can't M&A your way to success at some point you have to stop fighting and do real innovation. All the non technical managers need to be let go and they need... read more
I knew Sam and worked closely with him in developing the first iteration of the Walmart Visitors Center in Bentonville back in 1989-90. Sam was adamant that we not call the WMVC a "museum". I'm paraphrasing, but I vividly recall him noting that... read more
They'll never be able to cut enough headcount or skus to be as efficient (and thus cheap) as Aldi. Their stores are just too big for that sort of efficiency. And their stores are a fixed resource. So that's a big problem for them. If it were me, I... read more
The top brass does not give a damn about the long term viability of the company. They are only trying to squeeze out as much as they can in the short term. They make a ton of money then move on. WM is no longer a mom and pop shop. It has become a... read more
Walmart USA is what was impacted. Not sure why pricing is relevant when there is only one person in some of the SBU's. I guess Savings Catcher is being so utilized by so many consumers that there is no need for pricing. Not sure what will happen with... read more
Friday, April 28th, numerous pricing team associates were impacted. They either received a package because their position was eliminated or offered a demotion to another group. Seems like a significant restructuring of the role within Walmart. Maybe... read more
I heard from a reliable resource there were layoffs occurring in DGTC next week on Wednesday Thursday and Friday. The layoffs will be targeting 75 and higher.
http://fortune.com/2017/04/28/layoff-fears-record-low/ The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews of about 550 Americans at the beginning of the month. Concerns about layoffs, as recorded by the survey, reached an all-time high in 2010, with... read more
I know a re org is coming to Bentonville technology. If I don't like where they are moving me too, Will they give me a severance ???
What happens if we choose not to apply for the new positions? Do they have to give us a severance package? What happens if we don't get the new job we have applied for?
Anyone have new information on personnel positions being eliminated in Walmart stores??
I looked at the wire this morning - search severance . The policy used to be 2 weeks for each yr of service + 1 week per 10k of base pay, max 40. Now it's 2 weeks + 2 week for each year if service , + 1 week per 20k of base pay, max 40. This has... read more
Well another example of our Executives being held to a lower standard! A Role Model rating on an evaluation for us grunts is 5%. No One gets a Role Model anymore. But, do a mediocre job of running our company and you get a 13% raise! If you wondered... read more
So there are no department managers anymore... and are making us all apply to different positions. Does that mean that if we dont get the job they will lay us off? I dont think the new hours are so bad... but are they gonna have the sames shifts... read more
Was in a meetings with LT, SM, PT & GV. Get your box ready, Finance restructure is coming.
My advice to all, use all your PTO, all hours in those so called buckets they set up last year. This was a set up for us not to use. You don't get to use your personal hours once they terminate your position. i am so sad to see this happen to our... read more
Vendor rooms 1-4 are booked all day. Usually this happens for layoff conversations.
Bentonville David glass building.
i heard some regions began laying off their co managers to get to the new guidelines. Others said we aren't letting anyone go. Anybody have any info? That's a lot of people losing their jobs!
What if any positions are being eliminated Friday at Sam's club ?
I am an ASM in Canadian Walmart. Does anyone know if the company can force me to be the overnight manager? Could I ask for severance instead?
Important meeting today for all store mgnt at 11 : 30. I'll keep you posted.
Were all the hardines managers at Sam's Club laid off?
This for the market in total, so the numbers are not Walmart specific. Anyhow, on a monthly basis, retail sales decreased 0.2 percent from February to March (seasonally adjusted), and sales were up 5.2 percent from March 2016. Source: at... read more
