    I was an overnight stocker from June 28,

    2014 to August 3, 2014. I liked the job, for the most part. I got along with 4 or 5 of my co-workers. The guy they usually put me with was always happy to have an extra pair of hands. The management, however, left something to be desired. I, along with my friend, were treated...

    As a second job, for extra income

    and to be closer to a loved one. Red flags came up during orientation when on their tv- they kept looping propaganda for LGBT. I thought little. I mean, it's a job! 'A sure thing.' I was to report for computer training (never happened. They were upgrading computers) I went...

    As Peak Time

    I worked as a Christmas peak time worker at Walmart for several years.  I worked mostly in the jewelry department.  It was a great way to earn extra money for Christmas but it was also a very stressful job.  I hope that I never have to work there again.

    I Think I Would Like to Go Back!

    Most people who have worked at Walmart would probably not want to go back there! But me, I did like the job! I would love to work there again but the downfall to the whole job for me was that it was such a long distance from my home. It was right at an hour away...

    I did it for some extra cash.

    It was hard, I was a maintenance worker (aka janitor) and a cart-pusher. They wanted me for Cashier, but they schedule their lunch/meal breaks SO much tighter. Maintenance especially could take lunch whenever they wanted to as long as it was before 6 hours. Did it for exactly 3...

    Big Surprise, They Effed Me!

    I got the run around on benefits for so long, I finally quit. They took advantage of me and when I demanded benefits they said cool, in 90 days. I had already been there almost 2 years as a part time employee working 35 hours a week. I didn't even care really, it was my...

    I have and still do work

    for walmart. Some days I love it.... Other days? It's a vile, stressful pit. Even in good days? It's very stressful. It's like they put the weight of the store's success, on your shoulders. Workers are crippled by policy and yet told to break it for shoppers. So, the strict...
