OHHHHHHH you opened a HUGE can of worms now!!! LOL
I worked for them for 2 years. I was a great cake decorator, until the old bakery manager came back, then I was told I had to transfer deptartments or get terminated. I transfered to fabrics and crafts, and 2 months later I got hurt on the job. I herninated 2 discs in my lower back. I had to fight them for workers comp. I took them to court and won. Then they screwed me out of my full lump sum settlement. It was supposed to be around $40,000. By the time they got done screwing me over, I got $20,000, well after my lawyer got his $4,000, I got $16,000. I am now applying for disability, because the Drs can't fix me, and I was told by 2 Drs I was not a candidate for surgery. In my court case, I was awarded permanent payment for my drs and meds for my back, as long as it is proven that it is for the same existing condition. Well they are already fighting me all the way on that. I have a bill here for an MRI on my back, and it says that they refused to pay for it, so payment is expected from me. They refuse to pay for any good meds that will help me, so what I am taking is garbage, and really doesn't help that much.
Now if you just want my opinion as a customer, I would NEVER take my car to them to work on them. They hire any person off the street, with little experience.
I have purchased rancid meat there.
I have seen how the seafood and deli areas are run, I would never buy anything they serve there.
They use sweat shops for all of their products. I remember back in the 80's, they used to hang signs in the stores showing a new product, and telling how many jobs they had created. Now everything you see is made over seas, nothing made in the USA. So they got rid of alot of jobs and saved all that money for their pockets. They don't care about their employees, or their customers. The only thing they care about is the money they put in their pockets. If Sam Walton was alive today, it wouldn't be this way, right now he is rolling over in his grave at the mockery his greedy family has made of his empire that he built so long ago.
If you ever get the chance watch the documentary called "Walmart, The high cost of low prices" Everything that was said in there by employees, I can associate with, I have seen it, or lived it. If we could get people all over the world to watch this documentary just once, I do believe that alot of people would not shop there anymore, and we might be able to make a difference, and get this company to suffer severe money loss.
