Just wondering what everyone’s take on this is.
Money has been #1 since the first business was created. If you don't make money you can't stay in business. Business 101. The problem is these companies have forgotten who makes them their money. It's the associates on the front lines in the stores... read more
I've been particularly present at my local Walmart throughout this holliday season, and here's my report: The side counters everywhere, all departments, are almost always blown out. I see maybe a handful of stockers in the whole place----and this is... read more
As a licensed professional, I decided to end my relationship with this company. For the past 5 years I saw the writing on the wall. More automation, more online access, thus reducing the work force. Less people on the floor to assist customers. And... read more
Think that this is more of a move an advertising move rather than something that will cost a lot of people their jobs, but symbolically I saw this move as a display of the process of Automation that is going on for a while now. A lot of people are... read more

The article in the link brought up a valid question, if you ask me. Generally beating Amazon is going to be very hard, if not impossible, but I think that WM has advantages in some markets and can prove to be a tough competitor to Amazon. One of them... read more
The fresh cap 1 hours are being cut from 40-to-36 hours a week. Some employees are getting 37. Why do they cut employees hours? How long will this last.
You know it's happening everywhere, and it is. Is Walmart the only company going through this? Let's see... That Titan of the Tech industry, Microsoft laid off close to 10% in 2017... read more

That the layoffs will begin before the holiday
I understand that this is not a layoff-related subject, but wanted to post this. The possibilities are endless on the Chinese market and I think that it’s a good move that WM plans to expand services. Think that the company can benefit from this... read more
Not a prediction, a fact. The US-China trade war will turn into a full blown cold war, where both nations will aggressively try to take each other down using every economic weapon they have. Walmart and other corporations which heavily rely on China... read more
Here are my questions about this. Is Walmart getting rid of assistant managers? If yes, when? Is this going to be a program, with some duties transferred? How will we operate if this happens? Do you think this will benefit the company? What are your... read more
If sales drop significantly enough to cause a problem, it won't be because of public out cry against working conditions/employee abuse. The consuming public couldn't care less about retail workers; many of them don't even think of them as human... read more
I called gbs a few months back. I am insider and can confirm reality and tax will be outsourced by end of 2019.
Christmas bonus... That was one of the first things they did away with like 15 years ago. Luckily? I'm grandfathered in as a 19 year employee and get a whole 75 bucks or something. No you get NOTHING for working days like Thanksgiving, New Years... read more
Do you think that Walmart’s treatment of their workers with all the layoffs will hurt sales? The company has what? Two million employees? You would think those would be their best customers. But if the company treats people poorly, will they still... read more
Walmart is experiencing the same wane in their success as all powerful institutions before them; that's the cycle. The new trend is online shopping, and it's such a radical departure from anything the world has seen before I can't imagine what is... read more

How many customers told you it was "oh so bad and sad" you had to work on Thanksgiving while at the same time being completely oblivious to the fact that them being there on Thanksgiving is the exact reason you were there to begin with? Maybe it's... read more
What a great day to be at work working for normal c-appy Walmart pay! I hope no one was dumb enough to go to work today, if you did you should reevaluate what your prioritys are. What kind of company expects its entire workforce to work for normal... read more
