I ordered a loft bed from walmart.com for my daughter. I was given an arrival date to pick it up from site to store in Stafford, Tx, so I went to pick it up and they told me it wasn’t there and I was sent an email that confirmed that it had arrived. I called customer service and they said there was some problem and that I should call the store. I called the Stafford store and was hung up on 3 times!!! I called customer service again and they attempted to contact the store also and they were hung up on also!! This is ridiculous!!! They then sent me an email saying what I ordered was lost or stolen. This was absolutely unaccepted and I will NEVER order from them again

The photos are from when I placed my order, I selected the 70″ vizio with 1 accessory which I chose the wireless head set, when I received the email confirmation it was for some other 29″ tv, This is a bait and switch scam, and when I called they basically called me a lair and when I told them I had photos they then said they could cancel my order and do not have to honor the advertising, I also printed the online advertisment and can send copies if needed. I have also filed a complaint with the the BBB, as I asked to speak with a manager they did not have one, when I asked for district or regional manager they didn’t know who it was I finally said okay how about your CEO, they said Google it??? I received the run around with this bait and switch scam, very frustrated, I want my order reentered and honored.

If you order the special off a restaurant board say steak, and they bring you out liver and onions, and they tell you to bad that’s what you get, do you say thankyou and eat it? No because its not what you ordered regardless the price.

On Tuesday, April 8, 2014 I was grocery shopping with my friend at your Falcon, Colorado store. I had purchased my groceries and was helping my friend load her basket with her groceries. As I was grabbing a bag to put in the cart the checker started turning the bag holder and one of the black things that sticks out struck my hand. At that time the checker, Bevie, told me I should report it. I didn’t want to make a big deal because I didn’t think it was that bad so we started for home. When I got home I did call the store back and let them know the pain was getting worse and if it didn’t get better I would be back the next day to make a report and the manager agreed.

During the night I did suffer more pain and at one point it did actually feel like someone had put something right through my hand. I took some Ibuprofen earlier and it just wasn’t helping much. The next morning my sister took me down to the store. I could not turn the key in the ignition because the pain was just awful.

I got to the store and asked to speak to the manager. I waited about 10 minutes for her to come out. During this time there were several employees standing around laughing and looking at me which made me feel very self-conscious and I thought it to be very rude. So the manager comes out with some paperwork which she fills out and my friend also filled out paperwork as a witness. After the paperwork was completed the manager just said okay well thank you for coming in and making an “incident” report. That was it. I felt at a total loss. She had just totally blown me off like this was nothing and nothing more would be done and it was entirely up to me from here. My hand was very swollen and you could actually see where the black bar had hit my hand. I asked the manager,Lori if they were going to send me to a doctor and she said no just go on my own and let them know it happened at Walmart and they could notify your insurance. Now you tell me, what doctor’s office is going to let me say something like that, and not charge me for the visit just on my word.

I think this whole situation with your employees and manager was handled in a very unprofessional manner. The manager just dismissed me as if nothing at all had happened. There has been no follow-up call to me at all. I do believe I should have been treated in a more professional, understanding and helpful manner. Now I’d like to know what you’re going to do about this entire situation. You can read your managers’ “incident” report that she had to fill out for me because I could not write.

By the way, the doctors’ report was a contusion to my right hand and peripheral nerve.

Thank you for not taking care of your costomers who keep your doors open. biggest run-around ever!!!

Karen, go to your doctor or any doctor and tell them like they said that it happened at Wal-Mart and they will take the information from you and they will bill Wal-Mart. You should not incur any expenses and keep track of everything you spend regarding this matter even the car trip so that you can be reimbursed. From that point, Wal-Mart will contact you and give you a claim number and you can proceed from there.

I am writing in to complain about a sheets store 182 in Bridgeport,Wv. I stop at this store every morning and there is never any coffee ready, out of ice and it has taking me 25 mins to get a MTO with only one person in front of me in line. I travel all over the country for work and I always look for a sheets to stop at. This store is the only one I have ever had issues getting what I need for my day.I feel corporate should check in to what this store is up to they are making a bad name for sheets.

I first got hired with Walmart 12/2004 – 01/2013 and started as a hourly cashier. During the first 6 years working with walmart as single parent I attended the university and got my Bachelors degree in Business. It took me 6 1/2 years to get promoted to a supervisor because I was always overlooked. But, once I got promoted I jumped from supervisor to ZMS to Assistant Manager with the last 1 1/2 year. Unfortunately, I was only able to complete the first 2 weeks of my training and had to resign due to a very serious family matter. I loved my job and was very good at what I did I know if I would of continued I would of gone further with the company. Now What I would like to know is where do I call or speak to besides the HR that is in charge in this area. I have emailed her twice about returning with the company and she hasn’t responded. There are many Stores opening up here within the next year and there’s many opportunity I have also seen many ex-employees from assistant manager to store manager that have returned with the company recently. Some of these Ex-employees just walk out on there jobs and just abandoned there jobs. So If they were given the opportunity to return who can I speak with besides the area HR manager. I would appreciate the help.

My son was fired today, why because he filed a grievance juset because he wanted to continue working in the department he has been in for the last seven years, so the lady from human resources found a reason to fire him. He loved working there now he is heartbroken.

Karen: help your son find a powerful wrongful termination LAW FIRM, one with more
than four lawyers who specialize in employment law. If he’s done his work well and without any major problems….he should have strong case against Walmart. You and
your son meet with the best of the law firms. they must cover all costs, believe in your son 100% and be a well known law firm. read client reviews on Google/ Yelp. do the
research. He will have a strong lawsuit against Walmart and after 7 yrs working there
the settlement will be very substantial.

I’m sure the settlement will be very substantial

I went to a Walmart store to buy a Samsung Tablet. It was $40 more in the store than online. I had to go home and order online to pick up at the same store I was just at so I could get the cheaper price. Walmart will give you a competitor’s price, but they don’t honor Walmart.com prices. That makes no sense.

To Whom this may concern :

I am here to express my hurt feelings from Gay discrimination at Winfield Alabama Walmart super-center. Me and my Life partner of 4 years has had to endure discrimination from his boss Asset Protection Manager Myra Moss at Work and out of work , this has taken a toll on our Domestic Partnership , she believes us being two gay males in love will ruin my Life Partner Hagen Kelley Smith’s Career in the Asset Protection field , and she has threatened to remove him from asset protection field if we didn’t split up , she came by our home one day and told Hagen she wanted me gone from my own home. This here is a bully of discrimination, I gonna take this to the media if she isn’t not relieved of her duties as a Asset Protection Manager . Today is a day we step forward in to the future of Gay Society and all discriminating Myra Moss of the world will no longer hold us back from being whom we are , it bad when your job is in Jeopardy for being Gay that our private Home Life and that where it should stay , if this issue is resolved in a timely manor I will relay this info to the media , press, news, ect .

Hi there, I’m just one of the regular customer at Walmart(STC). The other day, to be specific, April 2nd around 6:10-20 ish. My family and I were going around the store and have decided to go to McDonalds. We were about to go through an aisle(#21) that had the lights off so that we can get to McDonalds. There were 3 employees that was just standing there blocking the way. So, we said “excuse me” to them and one of the girl gave my sister the nastiest look ever and as soon as we passed, one of them said “what!? they couldn’t go to another aisle!?” and they all laughed. I turned and looked at them and they were just laughing and staring. At first, I tried ignoring but that isn’t right. I’ve asked the Cashier for her name, she refused. I asked her myself and she ignored me and laughed afterwards. A source had told me she’s one of the CSM. VERY DISSAPOINTING. How could someone promote or hire a person with that kind of attitude? That day, we had three kids with us with a stoller as well. But honestly, with or without a stroller Customers shouldn’t be feeling harassed because they went to an aisle that emplyees were just chilling in. I just can’t stand the fact that she thinks she could be very mean because she’s in a higher position. While eating, I was just watching them because I wanted to speak with her personally. They started gathering up and maybe even gossiping about my family and I because after they talked to the cashier girl, the employees would stare at us. After that, three others done the same. Maybe I should describe how she looks so someone can have a word with her. She was short, very curly hair, white or hispanic. She was wearing a green blazer that day. She is the CSM at Scarborough Town Centre. (Scarborough, ON, Canada) All I’m asking for is for her to change her attitude, apologize to my sister personally when we visit again and maybe even go to school and learn customer service skills. Some people actually deserves her position more than her. If there are no progress, I will report this as a harassment. People do deserve to shop happily anywhere and feel comfortable.

Ordering Online is a joke. Walmart will email & tell you an arrival date & then will change things last minute. I was told by Supervisor Jean in Colorado call center that she would request for another TV shipped out overnight for next day delivery. She did state that will not guarantee will be shipped today & that I would be receiving an Affidavit in a few minutes via email or can access online. This is over an hour and I have not received Affidavit nor can I access online. I ordered this item online since I was told would receive by 4/3. I have called in several times & emailed to confirm delivery date. I have been told via email & over phone that order is confrimed to be delivered 4/3. I called Fed Ex this morning and found out that Walmart has ONLY created label and has NOT requested a pick up. This is unacceptable since I am leaving the Country on Sat Morning and taking this item with me. I ordered online based on the information given to me.

I would like to say that I think you should know that one of your stores in southern Californiais telling ppeople that they can’t hire people unless they apply before a job posting comes out like for example I apply for a different types of positions and when I talked to hr department the said they over night Stocker positions open but they will not interview me for them sense I did not apply for a job before the job postings came out now I worked for walmart before and they have never had rule before and I feel like I am being discriminated on and I would hate to have to get a hold of a lawyer and the company for discrimination you can reach me at 619607XXXX if you care to discuss this further more thank you for reading this have a good day

When a requisition opens, the system pulls all candidates that have selected that particular position during the application. If you did not have an application in the system for that specific position then you will not fall into that requisition.

If you apply for that same position once a requisition has been opened, you will fall into the next requisition that opens for the position.

I don’t work for Walmart but have previous experience with the company. I know this isn’t what you wanted to hear but this is how the system works.

Recently we had an incident with an employee at our local WalMart in Texas. He (grown adult) felt the need to call my 4 teenage daughters stupid little b***hes…while they were grocery shopping. Upon them returning home and telling me what happened I called the store manager and complained…he acted as if he cared and would handle it. Long story short the guy is still working there and continues his nasty potty mouth language!!! I think it’s pathetic that he still is employed there…not a very good reflection on the store to have such an ignorant,disrespectful person employed there!!!
