I work at Mayfield Walmart.I really enjoy my job.Most of whats being said is garbage.People forget about all of the community work Walmart does.I try really hard to be nice to everyone I come in contact with.But just like you I am only human.I get yelled at,cussed at,stepped on.I also sometimes babysit for people who had rather shop than keep their eyes on their children.For every person who is nice and respectful to me there was 9 before that person being mean and disrespectful.One more thing,I have never seen anything to suggest that Lisha is anything like you people think.

my problem is not with the employees, but with the way the store is now.with the way the economy is they need to bring layaway back.it would help out alot with christmas and other things needed.
also, they don't have has big of a selection of items as they did before. all the changes they have made has only encourged people to do more shopping in paducah where they can get what they need since they can not get it here any more.

I work at mayfield walmart too and i don't care what anyone says about lisha key, she is nothing but a bitch. She would rather fire you than look at you. and about the changes and selection, that is all controlled by home office. they send us shelf layouts and tell us what we are going to carry. we are just the nobody's who do there dirty work.

im sorry you have to work in an enviornment such as that. i know you ppl at wal mart work hard for slave wages.i have a friend who works there,and they dont make squat,and they work like a dog. plus its always so damn hot in there and they control the temp from a place out of state!what a cheap ass company! i really hate walmart and dont shop there unless i cant find it anywhere else.

I agree with you about Leisha Key. I worked in the receiving department a while back and we were all doing our best at Christmas time and all we got was yelled at about how we were doing such a terrible job. She lined us all up in the back and berated us for about 15 minutes straight about how BAD all of us were at our jobs and how we were screwing everything up, but never ONCE offered up the RIGHT way to do it. Everyone stood there quietly with their heads down. I raised my hand and asked a question. "How ARE we supposed to do it?" Seemed like a reasonable question since I was new and the only way I knew to do things was the way I was being shown. SHE WENT OFF ON ME!! Telling me I was back-talking her and sassing her like a smartass.??? wtf? She never DID give us an answer on the RIGHT way to do things. A week later we ALL got either relocated or fired. The put me outside pushing carts, even though it said on my application that I was unable to work outdoors. I walked out on them 2 days later. Screw the big corporate monster that chews up good employees and spits them out. My sympathy goes to ALMOST everyone that works there.

I dont recall that.I'm not saying it didnt happen I just dont see anything like that happening.I feel bad for anyone who goes through that at any job.So far I have had positive things happen for me at Walmart.I work really hard and take pride in my job.They let me know that they notice my hard work and dedication.And no,I dont brown nose or kiss ass,I just do my job.I guess I enjoy being around people.

Had a good friend who worked there and was miserable because they were not treated like a human being. They needed the job but had to quit due to harrassment from higher ups. Thats a fact of life at Walmart. Some people are hired and seem to be on the pets list and they make it just fine but if you are hired and do not kiss ass then you will not be there long.

The problem is that since Wal-Mart is effectivly the only "game in town", they make wonderful profits and that's all that corporate sees. Unless formal complaints are made to them about the managerial skills, or lack there of, of a store manager, they won't change anything until profits suffer. Since the daily public doesn't deal with the manager, the staff would have to contact corporate and complain. Which, of course, risks their jobs, so its a no win situation.

I get so mad at wal-mart because every time I find something I like they seem to discontinue that item soon thereafter.

thats so frustrating!!!!

for example the Ben and Jerry's Cinamon Bun ice cream. oh man its so GOOD!!!!!!

and they quit ordering it.

I may go on a rampage inside wal-mart til they get my flavor back.

I know how you feel, there are several items that I can no longer get there. But I CAN get them at Pad. or Benton W/M. What's up with that? I know it is all up to corporate but it is very frustrating.

The reason for that is that they change warehouses,dont give up sooner or later it will come back. I work there and they are always doing that. And it also depends on the sales and ordering.

wallmart also coerces its suppliers to move operations to Mexico to get cost down, this is a fact. So wallmart is indirectly responsible for closing US plants in addition to driving out small business. these are Facts
