I am not surprised at Walmart workers reacting this way! Most are ignorant, lazy and ungrateful! Can't you guys just be thankful to have a job! A lot of people are willing to take your place should you go through with walking out on your job! What are you going to do with Christmas around the corner and no job? You want to spend Thanksfiving with your family, go right ahead! You will be spending a lot of days at home! Don't complain when you are struggling with finding another job! Idiots!!!!!
Astounded at you

Everything that they saying is true! Are we happy to have a job yes! But I for one know the retalitation that goes on there I am a model associate with associate of the month placks. I moved up in the company (far from ignorant or lazy) and had a bully boss. When I made complaints of the way she was treating me and the 70 associated under me (she making remarks like your usless to me and nothing but manual labor) and no one listened so I called out of store. Ended up getting a below standard evaluation and they tried to coach me 3 times in one month 2 times in one day. We are people who deserve respect for the individual. And we are threatened with our jobs on a daily bases working on a skeleton crew. So watch what you say it might come back to bite you and you may some day work there lol. Have a great day. Idiot!

You chose this lifestyle. You did not chose to get an education. It's retail, give me a break. If you want something different get an education, and contribute more to this country rather than wanting more.

I demand respect for the individual is all I'm asking for idiot and fair work practices. Dont try and make me feel bad about myself at least I have a job and paying taxes not drawing welfare. Now most employees at walmart get some type of assistance food stamps medical ect.... Im not one of them and another thing idiot my husband make over 50 dollars and hr so Im not some broke ass person asking for a hand out. You need to get educated before opening mouth and inserting foot.
