Let's list all the changes we expect Walmart to do in 2019. This may be several things: changes due to pilot programs changes due to market changes changes due to restructuring changes due to financial reasons changes due to (fill in the blanks) I am... read more
Has anyone heard about Department being eliminated and go strictly mod and price changes team
It’s a slippery slope......eliminate associates = save wages.....sales are not meeting expectation = eliminate more associates.....inventory is too high = decrease orders....This is a vicious cycle. How about this....staff the stores to take care of... read more
How many people stand to lose their jobs once this is implemented? Microsoft is now working on tech that would allow retailers to build checkout-free stores. However, instead of installing that tech in the smattering of Microsoft stores across the... read more

Resource actions that were scheduled for Q3 are being moved up. Most will be at HO, stretched out during August and September.

Our connections people were told that they are being replaced by a Third Party company.....Luckily oe person is moving onto another job.....don't know what will happen to the others....
Does anyone know what the Holiday Balance is on the new scheduling App is? Are they doing away with Pto?
How will it effect Cap Team 1 members will they still come in and cap and run consumables?
I think this is a good thing. The more Walmart focuses on operations in the US, the better it will be for us as employees. Or at least I hope so. I'm frankly already starting to see some improvements... read more
One of Sam Walton’s mantras was to listen to your associates. That isn’t happening because everything is hush hush. No open dialogue , Therefore, I can see them failing and having to rework everything in a couple of years. Many of the long term... read more
Two things I see this company doing: phasing out all hourlies and going through temp services, and of those, pushing for a huge % of illegal immigrants. Walmart has already dabbled in both. Get ready to see it explode.
Consolidating 3rd Food Sales Associate with Overnight Stocker. Eliminating Overnight Fresh Cleaner. Cap 2 will do all stocking but Grocery, 3rd Shift will take that. There's more but that's all that the person would say. Anyone hear anything more... read more
Seems like the company is trying to find ways not to raise the wages. The hiring pool is slowly closing in on them. Target starts at a higher rate.
San diego leadership under the microscope
Hearing 5-700 more HO associates to lose their jobs by the end of Q2 from several sources. Anyone else hearing the same? All of WM Real Estate now under WM Operations since EVP is moving on to WM International. This leaves the Real Estate team very... read more
Walmart will help funding college degrees for all of the associates who have been with the company for at least three months. I wonder if this is a publicity stunt or a genuine attempt to help out employees. Knowing Walmart, it's most likely the... read more
Is anyone else noticing a lot of people,especially merchants, getting let go on ethics violations? It makes me wonder if your pay gets too high, do they go digging for stuff to get rid of you? I don’t know this to be true, but there are a lot of long... read more
I’m hearing rumors that replenishment and mod are getting cut again. Anyone else hear or notice anything?
Watch out for Wal-Mart Labs and ISD counterparts. These teams are going to take on your business analytics and reporting functions.
Always watch out for pilots, always. That tells you what's coming... For example, see if any of the pilots going on right now will turn into global rollouts: day supports going away, PC/TC going away, adding DMs and splitting departments, closing... read more
Anyone hear about this? What areas were affected?
No overtime nationwide according to my assistants. As they sent everyone home early. That doesn’t seem possible
How much is the employee pay raise? I am new to Walmart. Do we get any holiday pay? Also, what about time and half.
Anyone notice the excessive hiring of management at Corporate? Seems they are getting top heavy. Is there no balance checks in place?
When does the customer first start
Any news of layoffs in San Diego?

Curious if any Co's out there who accepted severance and won unemployment? Really, Severance helps the the $950 month Cobra, 40+unpaid days of PTO I earned and only got paid for 5 (which I carried over from last year) yet there are still the same... read more
How'd your area do? My area was ok at about 45% but heard of another that got a dismal rating. Like unheard of negative sentiment, less than 25% engagement.
It’s nicer than it was, but none of that matters if they don’t fix their terrible search.
This is driving me insane. With so many things going wrong here, so many stores and clubs being closed and so many good employees being laid off for cost cutting reasons, Wallmart drops $16 freaking billion on an Indian company. Imagine if we... read more
How many jobs will be lost to pay for this boondoggle? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/heres-wall-street-saying-walmarts-202317531.html?.tsrc=applewf
Walmart is mediocre at everything: Amazon is better at e-commerce. Target is better at store experience (and better style in terms of products), Aldi and Lidl and Dollar stores (and Costco, usually) are cheaper, HEB and Publix and Wegman's have... read more
We just printed a whole lot of severance packages
