Treat employees equitably, with respect, acknowledge a job well done, get rid of laze-a-bouts keep the hard workers, allow employee advancement based on demonstration of knowledge and ability rather than favoritism, pay better, be more honourable in all aspects.

Update unrealistic tardy policies. Cut back on constant accusatory attitudes from management. Practice employee motivation instead of constant tearing down. Not suggesting that employees have to be babied and fussed over, just treat as a valuable team member instead of a millstone around the neck of their department.

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

Improve morale.

Re-structure Management. All I read is about how poorly upper management runs things. No communication and putting all problems,deadlines and stressors on floor associates. Too many chiefs and not enough indians!

Respect the customers as valued guests and don't just assume that everyone is a potential shoplifter. It's true that shrink is a concern but providing great customer service is key to having a successful business, and that in turn makes it a great place to work.
