Wally World Secrets
Walmart is the definition of a retail giant. They’re known for the super low prices that they have almost 24/7, but they’re also known for some bad things. Employees love to trash the company, and people love to talk about the fact that you can see strange things happening left and right in basic any of their numerous locations.
Everybody loves a good secret, and these are some of the craziest and best secrets and experiences you’ll ever hear about when it comes to Wally World.
I worked for Malwart 11 years ago for a whopping total of eight months. I worked the overnight shift as an Overnight Stocker for Department 8 (Pets). The store I worked at had just gotten brand new high rise shelves installed. They were said to be able to hold over a ton.
Well, one night after getting all my regular freight stocked and the overstock put into the bins, my bosses had me pull eight pallets of Arm & Hammer cat litter. The boxes had a bonus 10lbs inside, making them nearly 35 or so pounds a piece. They wanted all of those on the high risers.
I asked if they were absolutely sure the shelves would be able to handle all that weight. I threw a fit about it because I know I was in the right for being worried. Other department managers who were there also sided with me. They watched over the next couple of hours as I carefully did my job.
As I was putting the final 12 boxes on the bottom shelf, I heard a cracking and tearing sound, and next thing I know is I’m buried underneath all of the cat litter that had caused the shelve to collapse.
Everybody in the store heard it happen, and everybody was explicitly told NOT to dial 911 or anything. After getting all my blood cleaned from my face and cuts patched up, I called my uncle’s then girlfriend who is a lawyer, told her what had just occurred, and what the upper management is attempting to do.
As of today, I still haven’t spent all the money I received as a result of going to court over it. (TracksideHoax)
Once I had a woman who was giving me a hard time about a coupon that was expired (coupon people are the worst). She refused to give up, she really wanted that dollar off. My line was really getting long, and I was getting really frustrated.
So I reached in my pocket and pulled out a five and said, “If I give you a five will you give up on this coupon?” She got mad and said, “I can’t believe you said that to me.” She told the CSM, but I didn’t get in trouble for it. (Wright4000)
There was black mold in the dairy cooler.
And I don’t mean just a little patch. I mean all the way along the yogurt wall. The manager who was asked to clean it claimed he did.
So naturally the higher-up management went to check his work. He hadn’t even touched it.
They ended up having to stand in there watching him disinfect the cooler from top to bottom. This was a well known druggie and it was too gross for HIM.
A co-worker witnessed one of the day shift meat department workers take a piece of meat that was almost green out of claims and put it back on the shelf.
On top of that, for a good three months you could smell the expired meat from outside the meat cooler. (AndrewK02)
