i was terminated in late march early april from store 1803 for safety violation and upon termination was told i was rehire-able … but when i went to apply in november,,, said i was not rehire-able… after months of the run around i come to find out they mislabeled my rehire status.. from safety violation to gross misconduct,,, and this is not only preventing me from getting hired at walmart but other jobs as well,,, i have contacted the store manager after months of this and still having to look into the matter,,,, something needs to be done immediately to fix this issue,,, or further actions will be taken on my part. Deformation of my character is not taken lightly,,, i now know why i was given the run around all this time…

I have money on a walmart money card of $400 and I could not take it off because my card expired January 2015. I’ve called numerous of times to have a new card sent to me so I can pull my $400 off the card and each time the cart was not sent to me. I also had applied for the car to be sent to me Federal Express and paid $15 for this fee and was told later the card still have not been since out. I have no idea what I can do at this point. My rent is going to be due again coming this March and I need to pull that for $400 off the account in order to pay my rent and I can’t do so because somehow this card is not being sent to me.

My daughter got fired for misconduct, we tried to call the human resource dept. in manville New Jersey and the corporate office for the reason she got fired . And they kept hanging up on me. Terrible store the people just don’t care they are inexperienced at all there jobs right to the top of the chain. Half of them cannot speak English and customer service never picks up the phone and when they do, it is the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Very nasty and inappropriate! They really need to give there people training ,it seems the customer is wrong and Walmart is always right. I wish everyone in the world would boycott there stores.

Don’t shop at the Walmart on Old Hammond Hwy in Baton Rouge LA the customer service and cashiers are the rudest people I have ever seen. They treat any customer price matching very badly they don’t want to price match and they try to make it to where the customer won’t price match, they act like its a problem. I have been price matching for years at all the other walmarts and I have never had any problems at any other store. Today I was behind a young lady whom I’ve seen several times shopping and she always has a buggy full of groceries, she was price matching and the cashier a young colored woman with long orange hair went get an older colored woman from customer service to check the prices the customer service woman was on her personal phone checking every item the young lady price matched and was being very rude about it. The young lady kept her cool even though they were giving her a hard time about every item, then the young lady put a can of pasta and told them the price from another store, the price was more than Walmart and the cashier said sarcasticly its a lower price here, the customer rep said no she wants to price match then price match, the young lady grabbed her purse and told them I don’t have to put up with this crap i spend to much money to be treated that way and left two buggy’s full of groceries at least three hundred dollars worth. I also walked out and I told the young lady she needs to report them that she isn’t the only one they treat like that. I can only imagine how many people walk out of that store because of the people who work there.

We have been in Apache Jct, Ariz. since Dec. 2014. Usually shop at the Walmart in Apache Jct, Az before we go anywhere else, but we are strongly rethinking the reason we should shop at this store. This store seems to be out of everything and if we ask why, all we get is an excuse or don’t why we are out of this and that Yesterday I went looking for a 3″ roller cover and they were out. They had 4″ but no frames. Today we went in for something they were out of. Asked the Supervisor on duty why they were out and she said I don’t know and turned and walked away. No one cares. First they said they were remodeling, then another one said they were holding off for an audit. Snow birds triple their customers and they don’t have inventory. I’m sure this isn’t the first complaint you have received. We don’t want to drive another 10 miles to go to Signal Butte. I heard there was even a piece in the local paper about this problem. Can’t you change managers or do something, or don’t you care either.

I redeemed $49.07 from my SavingsCatcher to my BlueBird (walmart/American Express) card only to find my Savings Catcher zeroed out and no money moved to BlueBird (supposed to double to $98.14).

I spent 185 minutes on the phone with Walmart Savings Catcher and BlueBird, going back and forth between them for two days. Now they are blaming it on a “Safari issue”, yet no one can guarantee I can get credit for my $49.07. Absolutely TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Sat on hold for over 30 minutes several times. I guess I’ll be writing Doug McMillon AND CEO Ken Chenault next. Maybe they will have better customer service skills?

I lost my car keys at the parking lot on 1/31/15 around 1:00 pm. I looked in the parking went inside looked around for like an hour. Finally I went to Costumer Services and asked if someone had returned some car keys. The answer was no one. I left the store and I came back after two hours. Went inside to Costumer Services thinking that maybe someone found my keys. By that time the manager was at the desk of Costumer Services and 3 of the same employees that were earlier,once again I asked, same response, no one had returned car keys, the manager not even went to look in the office. So I left. When I was at the parking lot looking for the key, a guy and his wife approach me and asked me if I was looking for some car keys that he had return two hours ago and he described my keys. I told the guy if he could go with me to Costumer Services because the employees were saying no car keys had been returned. We went inside, the guy recognized the employee who he returned the keys to and she was one that was saying no car keys had been returned. At that time she, herself, went to the office and gave me the keys. I was very disappointed with the way I was treated. Even the guy who found my keys could not believe the way I was treated. Two days ago a manager contacted me by phone but I went personally to see her, she was not there that day but I wanted to see the manager.

Very disappointed with my meeting with two of your managers on Thursday 2/5 between 4:15-5:00 pm.The costumer is NEVER right at Walmart.Giving me such a BS excuses for your employees behavior. I had been shopping in that store for years because its convenient for me and always with bad experiences , really I do not know why I keep coming back.

My daughter 28 and my two boys 8 and 9 went shopping in walmart my daughter just got paid on Friday. She bought over a 100 dollars worth of stuff like pillows clothes ETC. She had a confuter and some car light bulbs she thought she had rung up the blanket but she couldn’t fine the bulbs she figured they had fallen out of the buggy. When she started to walk out the greeter ask to see her receipt no problem then she had realized she didn’t ring the blanket she told the man that she needed to go back and pay for it he then took her my minor sons into a room where they questioned her searched her purse told she couldn’t call me. Look those are minors and I needed notified to be up there. Then police came the lady then tells my daughter to ask the cop if she can call me right there the AP was in the wrong you were holding minors. I am going to talk to a attorney I thank Walmart can be held liable for not allowing my boys to call me they were so upset. Walmart I have always shopped at your stores spent big bucks there but now Kmart and others stores will get my business I voycot your stores I shell spread the word no one holds my boys as if you were kidnapping them. Walmart in Lawton ok on Sheridan road is where this happened lady that did this we will meet in court you should be a shamed of your self. Signed a MAD MOM

It appears that everyone that has written on this site has had major problems with Walmart. The sad thing is, that no upper management will ever even see this site and read all the problems that all the Walmart customers are having and rectify them. I, myself have had major problems with Walmart. My son who is 13 and two of his friends who are also 13, went into Walmart and one of the children purchased spray paint. Well, it’s illegal for Walmart to sell spray paint to underage children. Well, you can guess what happened after that. Yes one of the children ( not my son) went behind Walmart and spray painted a crate. And yes, you guessed it, Walmart called the police and had them arrested. It’s funny, Walmart holds no accountable has to how the spray paint got sold to underage children. And yes, it’s all on video who purchased the spray paint. I am so sick and tired of Walmart not being held accountable for anything they do to their customers. It is sickening. It’s too bad upper management will not see any of these post. If they did they would be shocked about what all is happening at all their Walmart stores and to the customers, who are the backbone of the company. Without us, there would be no Walmart. That’s why I do not and will not shop there anymore. I have spread the word and I’m going to keep on spreading the word. So if you end up reading this post and you also have a beef with Walmart, I’m 100% with you!!!! I wish there was a way that we could all ban together and take down Walmart once and for all.
