The robot scanners will be in all stores by year end. They will do all section work and scan entire store every 24 hours. Stockers will work reports and topstock also. ALL DM gone by 2019.
In 2008 a memo got leaked by a H.O. Walmart exec named Linda Chambers. The memo itself was lengthy and covered a variety of topics, mostly innoculous, but the passage that caused a real flap was a study she cited, that claimed 'the over-all... read more
So far everyone that has had their review in my store has gotten only a 2% raise. Even those that got exceeds expectations. WTF! They saved billions in tax cuts and billions more firing half the Co's. Makes me think they don't want people working... read more
I just applied for the Regional assistant manager training program!!! Wish me luck 🤞🏼🤞🏼
Why did Walmart just hire a new store manager from outside the company when there are so many displaced Cos??? We lost our Cos and our Store Manager in all of this mess. The Cos were hard working good people. Instead of promoting one of them, or one... read more

Oh to be a newbie & blinded by the light. Old timers know a thing or 2 you buckroos would love to know. 1st & foremost the culture & company created by Mr Sam was all about change. He loved change & was always studing retail thru the eyes of... read more
5466 We were informed individually that our store will be allowed to keep 2 of 4 supports. The 2 cut will have 60 days blah blah blah...same as all other eliminated positions. Remaining 2 will work with Cap 2 lead and DMs in teams.
Are DMs next? Are they going to be laid off in 2018? We had a few threads on this now, I wanted to see what the wider community here on layoffs.com thought? Please chime in.

The way to save WMT will be to save the brick & mortar first. Hey, if you can't trust the stores, why should the consumer trust the online business? They should start with the top executive leaders and HR because they got the company to this spot in... read more
I have a novelidea: Buy more .com companies and layoff more associates. That should help drive profits. Then close all stores and just go online. OK, this is all sarcasm - so, do not hurt me!
Displaced CO's, how many of you have found Assistant Manager positions and are any of you still waiting to get picked up?
WOW!! Great performance in chasing Amazon, not working! Acquired Companies, Jet, Bonobos, Mod Cloth, Moosejaw, Shoebuy and Hayneedle are really layering on the sales and profit for E-Commerce. Ridiculous moves and are not playing out as fast as the... read more
Now we know why Walmart started layoffs, and those surely won't be the last ones, especially with this news. Think you dodged the bullet? Think again. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/20/walmart-q4-2017-earnings.html
Check your paystubs this week.... Anybody notice a change in available PTO? Last paycheck (the one with the payout) the payout there was 80 hours available, now there is less than 20 available and i didn't use any of it... What's going on?
Now that the American middle class appears to be rebounding, it will happily leave Wal-Mart and its cheap, degrading stores on the side of the highway. Wal-Mart, founded in 1972, can't harken back to its glory days, because it has no glory days... read more
walmart has gotten some bad press lately but I think with the new starting wage more associates will be happier. if you made 9 an hour, your pay if you are full time, which most associates are, will go up 160 dollars a pay period. the insurance is... read more
I was told Friday my position is now part time. I haven't been in the position very long. I'm sure they knew this was coming and they let me leave a position that is still full time to get bumped down to part time a couple months later. Now my only... read more
All these changes are but a tip of a looming ice berg. If it all seems sudden and scrambled and disorganized, that's because the company itself is reacting to those very qualities of change from the market. With that said, we can expect to see some... read more
We lost our Cos and our Store Manager in all of this mess. The Cos were hard working good people. Instead of promoting one of them, or one of the many other Cos that are being moved around like chess pieces, the company hired a former grocery store... read more

When I started at WMT there were 3 basic beliefs....Strive for Excellence, Service for the Customer and Respect for the Individual. Then along came “Integrity Always”. Integrity used to be a given but because some people didn’t have any, they had to... read more
As we have seen a recent change to the APM role starting with adding Assistant Manager to the title and being a key holder I encourage folks to look at how the APM role has been transformed at Sam’s Club and find the similarities and possibly predict... read more
It seems to me that there are still a lot of naive people who think, "this can't happen to me". Wake up, no one is safe! Seems that the business as usual with the MAPMs is especially concerning. They are barely treading water and act like they have... read more
Does anyone know of any displaced Cos being offered ASM positions or hearing anything yet?

What is the 1% club doing about our toxic leadership at the director and above levels? It’s quite evident that leadership is now a title and not a quality. My VP doesn’t know who I am, doesn’t know my name and I’m sure doesn’t have any interest in... read more
