Topics regarding layoffs at Walmart

Black Friday?

Anybody else finding their store not even close to the usual Black Friday crowds? Not sure what's going on, we are usually packed, but today other than this morning, we barely have more people than we do on usual days. I'm afraid that if we are doing... read more

Fake Leader!

How are expenses up?

With all the layoffs, expenses for third quarter still reported as being UP?!? Where is all the money going?

Smile

Every store I have ever gone into nobody is smiling. They look mad or sad and some look frustrated. What happened to that place?

To the folks at WM HQ

You thought they just treated folks in the stores like dirt, didn’t you? It looks to me like home office is starting to get a taste of the treatment store associates have gotten for years. But hey. The stock price is up.

Walmart’s Toxic S-xual Harassment Culture

Some say it’s just the way men are I disagree not all men are the same and not all men harass women. But after a decade of service at Walmart I can’t tell you the number of stories I have heard about what other women like me have endured. Am I the... read more

Walmart has quietly begun testing an advanced, autonomous floor scrubber during overnight shifts in five stores near the company's headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., a move that could free workers from hours of drudgery, but that has already raised... read more

Lots of good guys leaving

Just saw a post on Facebook from a friend announcing today was his last day at walmart after 10 years. He was one of the most talented and friendliest developers/engineers I’ve ever met and had the honor of working with during my 15 year career at... read more

Nepotism is astounding

Whoever described the current situation as "looting" wasn't exaggerating. Walmart is infested with NEPOTISM and FAVORITISM at all levels. A lot of us on these forums, what we have in common is being overworked while being held to impossible standards... read more

Performance Improvement Plan(PIP)

Seems that a couple of people I know of have been PIP'd instead of getting laid off. Seems a little fishy in that if you don't agree to the plan apparently they fire you. Not sure if they are doing this to save money on severance packages, but seems... read more

Personnel

Any word on when personnel offices are getting the boot???

Bonus eligibility when leaving Walmart

Like most people here(it seems), I'm looking to leave Walmart. Is it confirmed that staying through the fiscal year, January 31st, will secure the yearly bonus? Honestly, I'm at the point where the thought of staying until mid-March for the actual... read more

Goodbye Walmart

I left Walmart after almost 10 years of service. Leadership lives with their heads in the sand, oblivious or unwilling to see what is happening around them. I survived multiple rounds of layoffs over the past 3 years in my area and eventually just... read more

WM lays off 155 store planners Nov. 3

Store planning got hit hard last Friday. Most of these are field positions, so there is not as much exposure in Bentonville. These were probably due to the move away from new store openings and remodels. We are going all in on e-commerce. You have to... read more

.com/bentonville benefits (Seperate, but equal)

Guess this is the problem with transparency? .com has always had a different benefit structure that’s been (better). But since we are (combined), in theory, it’s more apparent now. (This is literally, (separate but equal) (doesn’t feel good does it?)... read more

ALL CURRENT HO EMPLPYEES LOOK AT HEALTHCARE

Knowing the exact date of layoffs will not help

Since people are catching on to HR booking vendor rooms and using that to pinpoint when a layoff event will happen, do you not think HR could ask anyone in leadership to book a room under their name and still use it for layoff? For that matter, they... read more

Walmart free!!

Last year I was one of the invoice associates (another of the "useless people") that was given a choice and it was the hardest choice I've ever had to make; take a job that would pay me less and be on my feet 8 hours a day (nearly impossible after... read more

Walmart Digital

I am a store employee and somewhat low tech. I am hearing the term "Walmart Digital" - what is it - I am trying to figure out if and how this is important and what kind of influence this will have on us in stores. Is this making the website bigger?... read more
