Recent remarks from our EVP outline that sentiment exactly. Without ever addressing the layoffs directly, he told us to stop "the worry, gossip, rumours, paranoia and assumption of negative intent." Pardon me, sir, but you've laid off about a dozen... read more

A 3rd party survey link on Friday close to midnight, left me wondering!, well its simple… (1) siphon the opinions into a black hole (2) save some embarrassment by reducing the feedback posted in public. Changes made in last few months, reminds me of... read more
Some observations/comments on my part..... Working for WM has become a one-way street where they now take and take and take. I would be amused at every year begin meeting (YBM) where someone in leadership would inevitably say "We're going to do more... read more

Restructuring has become a new way to announce layoffs without actually having to say the word. It's mildly put annoying and a huge cop-out. A title with restructuring and Walmart in it does not seem as bad as one with layoffs and Walmart, I guess... read more

Anyone hear anything about layoffs coming to the stores? Personnel, DSD, Claims?
I've heard that they're trying to hit an SG&A number of 16% over the next four years or so. If this is true, they'll have to keep cutting headcount. Can anyone confirm/deny this rumor? Is it even possible for Walmart's SG&A to get that low?
This company is ridiculous! I have given 19 years to this place and was told today my role had been eliminated. Leadership has NO empathy for their people. What a disgrace this company has become!
SVP of retail let go today. Another VP in retail let go today, more to come this week.
Doug made it clear in an HR quarterly meeting that layoffs will continue & basically said if you cannot accept that, you need to go somewhere else. HR has the lowest AES scores across the company. We get blamed for all the layoffs even though we just... read more

Been reading on here and saw a post asking if anyone else's area had been audited/reviewed by Deloitte. The idiot that leads our department (in Corporate Tax) told us that PwC would be coming in to do a "tax effectiveness" review. Since this moron is... read more
Walmart has historically put people in senior leadership roles that have absolutely no experience, or education for the jobs they are given, then wonder why they get bad results. Recall years ago when they used to play musical chairs with the... read more
Anyone heard anything about layoffs at the H.O. in Q3 or Q4? Seems to be occurring quarterly nowadays.
Why don't they outsource management in ISD. Do they really do much at all besides ask when things are getting done? If you work in ISD you know what I mean...

Then numbers were bad, but the only reason the score was as high for (would you recommend to work at walmart) was because India was included . As you should know, Walmart India is taking on a lot of the work that was once done In the USA. My sr... read more
Does anyone have information on layoffs? It'd be nice to know if co managers are going to be laid off. I'm not sure why other stuff needs to be on this site. I'm more concerned about if I will have a job tomorrow.
It's time to break Amazon up and I think the regulators realize this now... Amazon treated the book industry the same way we handled the territories into which we decided to expand - use massive amount of capital to lower prices, destroy anyone who... read more
