I know 3 people that have been there almost since it has opened be fired in the last 6 months ! One said they had 1286 people 2 years ago and now down to 700 and something. I wonder if they still get the huge tax breaks with so many firings ? What is going on there ?

fire there long time employees over something trivial. I've heard it is a terrible place to work. they don't focus on safety they focus of production - also, too many bosses-that don't know what actually is done to get the work out. Come in during the eleveth hour of something and fire you. I've also heard that there made to drive faulty machinery setting everyone up and injury. I'd think twice about working there!

They want all long term employees fired so they can hire part timers for less pay and no benefits. They make it miserable for the their long time workers who bust their asses every day for that shit hole. It is really sad Sam Walton is probably rolling over in his grave. IDK how they get away with half the shit they do. Cut employees hours to 32 hrs a week and how can they still give them benefits? Pretty much tell people to go on unemployment so they can save money during the slow season. When does the labor board step in.

Really? Who you calling Lazy! Get your nose out of your bosses ass.. brown noser. They suck ass. I had to wait 1 hour for the idiots at the Walmart Distribution center to take me to the hospital for an injury. I was bleeding, and in pain while I waited because they had to do friggin paperwork. And then before I was allowed to see the emergency doctor I had to take a piss test first, another 20 minutes. Meanwhile my finger was crushed and bleeding and was being held together by my other hand. Oh and I had to have surgery; on workmans comp and out of the DC doctors orders until the pins came out in 8 weeks. They cared so much that they called my doctor to have him remove my pins before I was completely healed. He pulled the first pin and I felt it and said was I supposed to feel that? And he said NO!!!!! He left the other one in, and said he apologized but he had to send me back to work. He was not happy. He told me to make sure that I kept my hand elevated and free from dirt so I didn't get a bone infection until the other pin was able to be removed. All they cared about was getting me back in the D.C. to work.......not my health or recovery....so they can SUCK IT!!!!! Paid Slave Labor....that's all it is, they treat you like scum. Oh yeah, and because they made the doctor pull that pin, my finger never healed properly and I'm stuck with a bent finger.

Companies cannot MAKE a doctor do anything, they are required by law to follow the doctor's instructions.

Walmart DC will try to persuade the doctor to force you back to work so they have the opportunity to fire you for real.

A few years ago a Walmart store in Canada voted to go union. It passed. The next day Walmart closed the store permanently. Everyone is scared to talk union in Walmart which is also a means for termination. People who work for Walmart are spineless brown noses and deserve what they get.

So close it. Bring in another 7 dollar an hour employer. Keep the unions out and soon that's all that's going to be here.
