I Work At Walmart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50 People

    As some of you may have noticed,

    I had recently chosen to step down at work. Being a customer service manager overnights is very hard work and is very stressful. With all the constant stress I was under, I ended up going back to stocking. Management could tell I wasn't happy and so they took me into the...

    I still do for another 5 days

    but I have to admit it has been the absolute worst experience of my life. Even spending night in jail for something I did not do and got cleared of was better than my experience working for walmart. Things have gotten even worse since putting in my 2 weeks notice I have been...

    I've been with Walmart

    since May of 2007. I started out as an overnight cashier. I quickly become the fastest cashier the store had. I always had all the bills facing the same direction and work area neat. About a year later an overnight electronics associate went on a leave of absence. During...

    I promised an update of how my first week went

    so here we go. So far I've been remembering everything that needs to be done and how to do them. It only took 1-2 times on seeing how to do a particular thing before I was able to do it on my own. I've always been a fast learner so I'm glad this was true in this instance as...

    Only Getting Worse

    I work overnight. I started in '05. I liked it back then, but over the past few years with the changes they've made overnight and all of the different unqualified managers we've had, it seems that the store is going to hell in a hand-basket. :/ Terrible....looking for a new...

    So obviously, this is my first blog.

    So I guarantee it won’t be anything great. Actually, it will mostly likely be terrible. But you have to get past the terrible and awful to get to the wonderful and great right ? First off, you see I work at Walmart. And I for some reason really like to run self check out. And...

    I Sincerely Like My Job

    I used to work at a grocery store called Market Basket, where I was a bagger. I f***ing hated that job. They have me almost no hours and the managers were complete and total ********. So when I quit and looked for a new job, Walmart said they'd hire me. I was so dreading working...

    Outside. In The Snow.

    I love the fact, we get .40 cent raises every year. I love the fact, its pretty hard for a cart pusher to get promoted. I love working outside in the freezing cold snow. I really do like that last one. I try my best not to complain, and make the best of every situation. At this...
