Topics regarding layoffs at Walmart
Told this week all dept managers have to work 3 weekends a month starting week 5.
Thought for a long time that this chase for applying new technologies was just a phase of the leadership in their efforts to show the shareholders that they are innovating. But it looks like they’re not giving up, are they? The sad thing is that this... read more
Big Changes Coming Soon to a Walmart near you!
Here is an interesting preview of WM’s earnings that underlines the segments in which the company is expected to outperform. The grocery market is something that is especially interesting, as that segment is especially expected to boost sales... read more
Cashiers are an opportunity every time a customer comes in the store to check in on the customer experience. It’s just that the industry uses them wrong for the most part. Your cashiers should be brand ambassadors. If they were coached on how to... read more
The REAL DEAL Call happened to day from Market Managers to Store Managers for Phase 1. These changes will roll out in Phases. It will be similar to the Stores meeting goals on the CAMP process. Store Managers received an email today that outlined the... read more
Has anyone confirmed smaller store (less than 60) will be going to day stock or is this another rumor. I'm guessing they would get rid of the 2 overnight asms.
Call Buttons to replace staffing of departments. Walmart is even using digital technology to change the way customers ask for help. New next-gen call buttons activate GPS-enabled devices worn by staff members, meaning, only employees who have... read more
At store 992 in Tulsa our Fresh Cap program is quite a joke. I don't think it's run the way it's suppose to be. We aren't allowed to cap and pick the old produce first, we have to work the new freight down on the pallets, then cap everything. Same... read more
Anyone have any details? A market call was today.
Heard this on r/walmart on reddit. AsM are being met with tomorrow. Affected associates to follow.
As far as I could tell the elimination of the ASM position started off at smaller stores and neighborhood WM’s, so it looks to me the management is testing an operating model that doesn’t involve the ASM position, if it proves to be working on the... read more
Has anyone heard what the actual hours are for the new People Lead position?
Anyone else tired of the customer complaints and theft through self checkout? What a mess. Just like the steal and go program, they should call this the “help yourself to free merchandise” program. Also, if you want to see customers just walk out and... read more
It will be interesting to see what our management teams look like 2-3 years from now No ASM’s prob not getting cut, why would they. They quit,get fired, or just don’t show up. It’s a toxic environment I don’t know any manager that loves their job... read more
well im sure cutting pto accrual rates for all employees will improve employees attitudes!! as most employees are part time your now only earning a fraction of time for vacation.. as a employee of 5 yrs thanks to their current pto program that they... read more
I heard there was also a freeze on ASM promotions currently. Anyone else hear this? It would make sense to do that if big changes are coming! Store managers just had to do the calibrations on current ASM to figure out who to cut, so makes me wonder... read more
Bring it back. It is the only just thing to do. Now. It is a win-win situation, Walmart wins and the worker wins, the customer is happy as the worker behaves much better. And, stop whining about folks calling in sick, give us back our holiday pay and... read more
The merger of pharmacy and optical has ruined both departments. Pharmacist don't know how to run a successful OPTICAL. When Opticians were DM's the operation ran much smother and opticians actually enjoyed their jobs. Now.. Opticians dread a visit... read more
....Sadly Walmart was once a great place to work with tremendous career possibilities. However, once LS took the helm as the leader, it has gone down hill ever since. It used to be a great TEAM environment where if you worked hard, there were... read more
Every store I see here in central Il. looks dead in the water. Almost no cars in the lot or people in the stores. They look like K Mart of the early 2000s. Which is actually all fine with me; I never was a fan, could never see the sense in having to... read more
I find it very sad that anyone would say people who work at walmart are not smart enough to work a real job! I've worked since I was out of high school. Almost 30 yrs for walmart. It was a wonderful company to work for when I started. Only the last 8... read more
I’m at Sams and have not heard anything on raises this year. Anybody on the Walmart side heard or seen anything about it??
Hard for me to process that such a huge investment was made without taking into account all the possibilities of what might happen. Just hope this Flipkart thing doesn't turn into a bottomless pit in which the company will through money... read more
Which tributes were sacrificed to shareholder profit this season? Leave a list of the positions affected below.
Is there a way to see what our bonus is going to be? I can't find it anywhere on the Wire?
Ever since Sam passed away his family and the board have done nothing but run the company into the ground. Looks like they want to run the stores on a very minimal skeleton crew. Good luck with that. Before long there will be no more Wal-Mart's or no... read more
Does anyone have any more info on PP (hehe) position? Timeframe? When job will be posted? Pay? When PC and TC positions wil be eliminated? Training? Anything would be appreciated. Thanks.
Asms at my store have mandatory meeting tomorrow....any other store having one also? Wondering if Asms are getting cut.
Am I the only one who is in a situation that his manager is dumping extra work on you, while he treats you like garbidge? I and a couple of other guys work our asses off, but that seems not to be enough, as we are told of or written up for every... read more
Any ideas on how to deal with a manager who waits until five minutes before I have to clock out to give me a task that will require much longer than those five minutes? Of course, I'm still expected to clock out when I was supposed to AND finish the... read more
I need answers what are core hours? I am a full-time associates and my manager told me about core hours. My hours are 32 a week, and he would schedule me more hours so that I would get up to 40 hours a week.
Today, all the PTCs at Sams were told their jobs were eliminated. They have until 3/29 to find another position. Severance is being offered.
Walmart is running a proof of concept for almost the past year on this program called "Great Workplace" in two Supercenter stores. The structure is as follows: 1 Store Manager 1 Developmental Store Manager (Co-Manager) 3 Business Owners (1 Fresh, 1... read more
