Walmarts Equal Oppertunity!

So this is how my morning went at Walmart. EQUAL OPPERTUNITY IS A LIE!!! Not only that but I posted this on their page and not even 5 minutes later it had been deleted. I emailed it to them and posted it on my local news page and Pissed Consumers Page and this is what I sent to walmart: I applied for a job at the store in Weaverville North Carolina and guess what I GOT IT!!!! I went to orientation today and guess what I found out. AFTER I was at that store 3 times to get this job, sent across the county for a drug test, had to sit for 2 hours at that drug test, bought me clothes for this job THEY WILL NOT HIRE ME BECAUSE I AM 16! I will never spend my money at another unprofessional, immature, asinine, Walmart. This chain of zoo's is pathetic. YOUR store should have put me somewhere that I could work instead of KNOWING I was 16 and could not touch alcohol and promising me a job as a cashier. My father had to drive me FORTY FIVE MINUTES to this store to start my first day of work of which I was told to show up in dress code and come to find out the idiots who run this place gave me a job I could not have THIS STORE SHOULD HAVE PUT ME SOMEWEHRE ELSE!! Their excuse for not putting me in a position a 16 year old could work at was there was not a place. I would like to know why I was promised a job if they could not place me knowing I could not be a cashier. And there is room for me NOBODY WORKS THERE!! You have to stand in the middle of the walk way and yell at someone to go over there and 99.9% of the time the person who comes is not even the person who works in the dept. The shelves are always empty. OBVIOUSLY there is room for me. I would rather pay an extra 5 bucks somewhere else on my stuff then to ever walk into another asylum such as a Walmart. At least 50 bucks has been wasted on gas and me buying your "code" *** for this place for your friends at the Walmart in Weaverville located at 25 Northridge Parkway.

Walmart makes jobs in china

Walmart and "Made in China" are practically synonymous; Walmart imports some 70 percent of its merchandise from China. Walmart is now also rapidly becoming a major retail presence there, with close to two hundred Walmarts in more than a hundred Chinese cities. What happens when the world's biggest retailer and the world's biggest country do business with each other? In this book, a group of thirteen experts from several disciplines examine the symbiotic but strained relationship between these giants. The book shows how Walmart began cutting costs by bypassing its American suppliers and sourcing directly from Asia and how Walmart's sheer size has trumped all other multinationals in squeezing procurement prices and, as a by-product, driving down Chinese workers' wages. China is also an inviting frontier for Walmart's global superstore expansion. As China's middle class grows, the chain's Western image and affordable goods have become popular. Walmart's Arkansas headquarters exports to the Chinese stores a unique corporate culture and management ideology, which oddly enough are reminiscent of Mao-era Chinese techniques for promoting loyalty. Three chapters separately detail the lives of a Walmart store manager, a lower-level store supervisor, and a cashier. Another chapter focuses on employees' wages, "voluntary" overtime, and the stores' strict labor discipline. In 2006, the official Chinese trade union targeted Walmart, which is antilabor in its home country, and succeeded in setting up union branches in all the stores.

Walmart SUCKS!! I hope the whole company shuts down!!

Went to get an oil change today and they said they couldn't do the oil change because they claimed my engine was missing two cylinders of oil pressure and the guage is not operating correctly. Not to mention they told me it would be an hour on the oil change anyway despite the fact that there were no cars in the parking lot except for mine and no cars in the TLE either. I absolutely detest Walmart. I don't even step foot into the supercenters anymore because there are so many *** working and shopping there these days. If I go to Walmart it is the neighborhood market. It is time for a serious boycott of Walmart.

Don't buy any electronics for gifts from Walmart

I bought a Nook reader to five as my son as a gift. When I gave it too him, he said that wasn't exactly what he wanted. I told him, no problems, I'll just take it back. I took back the unopened, factory sealed package, along with the receipt. Guess what, no refunds on electronics after 14 days. NO EXCEPTIONS. There are big signs in the store stating a 90 day return policy, but in very small print, it says not applicable for electronics. This was a product they still actively stocked and sold. I was very disappointed, won't be shopping there, especially for Holiday gifts. If you are looking to buy a gift, shop elsewhere.

I've always been a staunch consumer of Wal-Mart goods! Always low prices...always! The other day I filled my cart with probably $300 worth of groceries and headed for the check outs. When I noticed that each check out counter was helping customers and there were lines...

Walmart - Deceptive Description to get Home Deliveries

Bought a ProForm Elliptical machine from Walmart.COM (.com is important as they are not truly the same company). They stated the size of the elliptical was 60 x 63 x 25. We felt no other choice than to have it delivered to our house instead of the "free site to store" option since it was 5 ft long by 5 ft wide (which would not fit in our car). When it arrived today, the BOX was approximately 5 ft long by 25 inched deep by 15 inches wide...YUP a whole 15 inches wide. Our Walmart store is only 5 miles from our house. We could have EASILY fit that box into our van. When I called walmart.com to ask for a refund on the shipping ($69.97), they would only give me $34 dollars. I finally go the manager in the resolution dept at walmart.com to give me an extra dollar ($35) of the delivery charge. She would not even consider giving me a gift card for the remaining balance, explaining that I should have known the box would be a different size --even though there is NO mention of the dimensions of the box in its description. I guess I should have known what "WASN'T" in the description. ***I WILL NEVER BUY FROM WALMART.COM AGAIN NOR WILL I TELL MY FRIENDS/FAMILY TO BUY THERE. IN FACT, THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE--I WILL INFORM ALL MY FRIENDS/FAMILY TO STAY CLEAR OF WALMART.COM**** On the other hand, I went to my local Walmart, and the manager there, while not able to give me the entire $35 balance remaining on the bogus shipping charge, did provide me with a DC adapter for the elliptical since it to was not mentioned in the description as needing to buy that separately! I WILL BUY FROM MY LOCAL WALMART!

Walmart in Evans, Georgia - Charging me when the orders were cancelled I have to wait 30 days for refund

I have made several purchases with Walmart with my pay-later account. Several times my orders were canceled because they state there was an error. When this happens...even though you cancel it...the charge is still on my pay later account for 30 days!!!! Sorta like stealing. I am very frustrated as I faithfully pay my account. This ties up my credit line and I have to wait 30 days until it falls off before I can reorder. This happened when it was my Grandsons birthday. There should be an option to where you contact paylater right away and ask them to not charge for something I never received. Why Walmart continues to find errors with my purchases I don't know. I feel you should at least call the customer or at least allow them to try to reorder again without paylater charging your account. This was again gifts for my wife for her birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Walmart in Phoenix, Arizona - Refuses check payment of $12.00

Cancelled the service, ported number to another company because of dropped calls, poor coverage, etc. Advised amount on final bill. Paid by credit card, then continued to receive bills for 2 months. Cannot contact this company by email once your account is closed, only by a customer service and after holding 45 minutes abandoned. OK, sent a check direct from my bank, they returned it and said they cannot accept checks or cash, I must call a customer service rep and pay them $5.00 to make a payment. 40% service fee? Or I could go into wallyworld and pay cash only for an 88 cent fee. What kind of two bit mess is this company. Self employed and wasted $500.00 of my time.
