Walmart experience report

  • 12.Jul 2019
  • Employee

After nine years there, I was told I was never going to be good enough for a promotion, so I moved on to another company

2.39

Support from management

Some can be ok, but when doing what customers had asked me for years to do; I applied for a promotion. Management told me I would never be good enough, so don’t bother to try again. I know they were discriminating me due to my past seizures, but have no way to prove it.

Teamwork

A floor manager gives you a project to work on. The assistant manager says not to, and gives you something different. The store manager says not to and gives you something different than both other managers. Every day your first two hours go to waste.

Career Development

I walked in there with the dream of making a career out of that place and working there for decades, but after being told I was a good for nothing after nine years, it was time to move on.

Work-Life Balance

They don’t care about your life outside of Walmart. They just schedule you when they need you.

Company Image

Many customers say the only reason they go there, is because our town has no other store that carries certain products. Even if they had to pay more, they go elsewhere whenever possible.

Job Security

I felt safe myself, because I was good at what I did. Other people got let go for for the lamest reasons left and right.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to give new people a chance to prove themselves instead of throwing them around and doing what they want with them.

What I like about the company

The connections I got between me, my coworkers and my customers.

What I dislike about the company

They really don’t care about most employees. All that’s important to them is their daily sales totals.
