That charity must be run by an idiot. People should stop donating there.

Um our part time employees DO get benifits after being employed 2 years.

Walmart is known for being a shitty place to work, but I have heard that they employ more welfare recipients than any other company in the nation (don't quote me on that). So, at least it has its positives. But I was shocked to find out some of the things they do to their employees, like forcing them to work off the clock, taking life insurance policies out on their employees and cashing in on them, etc. It is terrible.



As for their average pay, are these including higher cost of living areas where the hourly wage is naturally going to be higher than in other places?

BTW no one is ever forced to work off the clock. We write people up for doing that. Unless you've worked there you don't know.

I've heard from other people who have worked from Walmart that they do. Maybe not at your Walmart, but there have been incidences of Walmart abusing their employees like that.

Is this management? I highly doubt that any floor worker/stocker at Walmart is making 17.00/hr.

Why would anyone pay a floor worker/stocker 17/hour unless they couldn't get get good employees for less? The job doesn't require skills and is entry-level.

When i worked overnights at Walmart everyone was making 15+ an hour but me. There's the dollar differential for being overnight plus guaranteed yearly raises. After so many years it adds up. Many people there have been at our Walmart since it opened.

I worked at Wal Mart full time and never was forced to work off the clock. I quit because the damn customers were awful.
