Walmart Asks Workers for Upbeat Stories, Gets a Cart Full of Criticism
At Walmart's annual shareholder's meeting last month, the stands were packed with Walmart (WMT) associates screaming their support of the executives (and celebrity guests) on stage. But not all Walmart employees are thrilled with the company.
Gawker has spent all week hammering on Walmart, on Tuesday publishing the latest entry in a series of stories from Walmart employees complaining of low pay and cut hours. Walmart responded with a posting on its internal website urging employees to share their positive experiences, which many did. But many other employees in the comments section of that post were surprisingly candid about their gripes with the company, and Gawker got a hold of some of those comments.
"I feel as though Walmart doesn't care about its associates," said one employee commenting on the post.
"My husband has worked for Walmart for 10 years and I for 8," said another. "When our family situation changed and we found ourselves needing to move, the company would not work with us to transfer and keep full-time status, which in turn will delay our new mortgage for 6 months. Some loyalty."
