Because I found out I can make double what they starting pay is at a warehouse. Would have stayed but they choose to promote inept people based on skin color and how much they kiss their rear ends.

I would suggest that Walmart management could treat their employees with more respect, more encouragement and if criticism could be done in private and not on the sales floor (in front of other front end employees, customers, etc.) then employees will feel less insecure in their position. The assistant managers at the store I worked at, however, were polite and talked clearly about situations and were helpful. However, I've heard negative things about hire up managers (such as District Managers) that do no protect their employees when a customer is being abusive physically or verbally. If you make your employees feel protected and backed up as well as encouraged and have a monthly quick meeting with each employee or give them notes about encouragement instead of getting angry about credit card applications and surveys (Yet still ask employees to positively pitch them both) then yes, employees will stay.

I left to go to Amazon because Amazon has way better; Pay, Benefits, and actually gives you full time 42 hours plus overtime pay. Stop working at Walmart.

Get out the old school books or look listen an watch how the Walmart man himself did it!!!! He wasn't all about the money etc etc he cared about the little people!!!! How do I know this I met the man himself SAM WALTON in Winchester Ky where I started my first an only job in my life! Yeap gave them 20 years of my life.cashier stocking, recieving ,claims manager ,department manager if at least 10 different areas in those years. Traveled to do remodels an new store set ups, personnel manager to assistant manager!!!! Yeap worked my way up but we had some truely caring not affraid to share their knowledge for fear someone may steal their job. If I shared my knowledge an that person was good to go an carry on in "my" job there were other areas that needed my help. Personnel I had training schedules if my people I took pains to hire came to me to say they were taken out to an, area where they weren't trained promise there was a meeting coming quick. When people want an desire to learn you don't set someone up to fail it's wrong an Sam Walton would have some heads to know how these dept managers, assistant mgrs, personnel managers etc etc treat a new hire. If their all trained the same then you have the right to ask why something isn't being done right!!! So the next time person nel crys about turnover no apps to choose from maybe they should check theirselves! An say hummm should have trained them better imagine that! Same stuff happening across the board prolly district an regional, managers, assistants, if you get frustrated learning it on your own imagine how someone new feels who never worked retail!!! Come on people dag does any Walmart store ever even mention or teach people who Sam Walton was! I was in an assistant mgr, management seminar when the news came across that man had passed an from the trainers to upper big wigs there wasn't a dry eye!! Maybe because we all really knew that things weren't ever gonna be right with Walmart again an believe me they weren't an it continues to get worse an worse! 😓 so if management still yelling "you are replaceable" believe me move on! Go back to school. Don't ever think they wouldn't do that to you or you make a difference cause they won't even remember your name after you walk out the door promise!! It's heart breaking an sad

To find a job that offers flexibility for outside activities and duties. That are actually part time unlike walmart who says your part time but give you full-time hours. Also how employees who don't do much or always late are praised or promotated . But if you worked there for years on end your treated poorly.
