At my Walmart, which has been one of the top sellers in the Walmart family for many years is also seeing some problems. As far as employees, you get what you pay for......I think they will have to learn that if you want quality employees you will have to pay for them......You do that by getting rid of stores that are just a drain on your bottom line and take that money and invest it in hiring top quality for your stores that are doing well. We will see if they learn that....
Walmart needs better managers overall and to pay people better. Until they do that, they deserve to lose money. When I worked there for about 2 years, even the dept managers dissed the higher up managers. Why? The higher ups sucked, that is why. Walmart needs a union or to get it's head out of it's giant arse, and pay people better.

Level 1 people: Cart pushers and janitors work hard overall. When I left nearly 4 years ago this May, pay started at $7.50. It really needs to be $8.50 to $9.00 starting out. Cap it at $10.50 or 11 bucks an hour. The CEO's, likely people who never worked hard, don't need 18 million bonuses.

Yes, I'm angry.

of course the employees at the one farther away are always nice and ask you if there's anything THEY can help you with. whereas the one in my town,you could be on fire and they won't put down the cellphone long enough to even look at you. like you said,you get what you pay for,and apparently the Hazleton Wal-Mart can only attract the dregs of the area.
You don't pay for what you get or however it goes. The walmarts that are poorly run have bad morale due to low pay and the managers. I worked at one for nearly 2 years. I should know.
