I Work At Walmart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 34 People

    I was stocking shelves

    when this guy (maybe in his 30's) comes over and starts looking at plates. I asked him if I could help him find something. He says "I'm good, babe. Can I help YOU find something?" I then slowly walked away.

    Ugh...

    I keep wanting to enjoy my job...and I did actually enjoy it for a while.  But my GOD!!!  These people are slowly but surely wringing that out of me.  I look around and see people wearing these tags saying "Proud Walmart Employee for 10 Years".... ...

    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...

    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...

    I just had my orientation today.

    I'll be doing overnight stocking. My friends told me not to work there for various reasons, but it's honestly not as bad as they make it sound. I'm getting paid more per hour than my last job, and I'm getting 32 hours every week. And they also have some good benefits for part...

    Use To Work At Wal-mart And Now I Am Going Back!

    I use to work for Wal-Mart and at the time I was working at Wal-mart I LOVED it, loved the fact that I was able to basically do anything I wanted from being a cashier, working in jewelry department, fitting room and etc, there we're so many opportunities.  The only thing I did...

    If you haven't read my previous story about my

    career at Walmart, I suggest reading that first. Saturday the CSM scheduled had called in so one of the two support managers was the primary CSM for that night. She was helping me learn the various tasks I would be responsible for every night. We had to work out which of us...

    I've been with Walmart

    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...

    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 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...

    In my store when you walk through

    and look at just about any worker, you can see it in their eyes that moral is just nonexistent. It's been really hard lately as understaffed as we are everywhere for anyone to get anything done. I am a CSM during the day. I have 41 Cashiers right now where as last year at this...
