I just want to add a comment regarding local wal marts in north east Ohio. The wal Mart in Chardon Ohio is the most cleanest and well stock store in the area. The store In Madison Ohio closest to Me is so dirty, messy thing laying around all over, never stocked on everyday items. I visited the Chardon store on July 25 2015 My 9 year grandson notice the diffidence between stores. We walked in to the Chardon store, he said, what a clean store as we walk thru the store he commented how clean it was and things were not laying around like the Madison store. So the reason I’m telling you this if a 9 year boy can tell that a clean store makes a nice inviting store. Madison store needs to learn for the Chardon store. Indeed the Madison is a VERY DIRTY AND MESSY STORE. Hope Managements of Wal mart will take action and clean up the Madison Ohio store.
Thank you

I understand everyone’s complaint on this site. I worked at the Wal-mart store in Hannibal, Mo for over 30 years!!!! Believe it or not I got fired on July 15, 2015 for what they call Gross Misconduct because I was giving outdated food to a charity called Feed America and I put outdated candybars in our assoc. lounge. I left the date on everything so Feed America receiptients and my co-workers could decide for themselves whether they wanted to eat it or not. I eat outdated food all the time. There’s a saying I’ve heard since I was little “waste not, want not!!! I’ll probably be eating a lot more outdated food now that I’ve been fired. I even questioned this procedure when I first started this job in Feb. 2011. But Dita Fox who trained me told me to use common sense and give them only food that I would eat myself and that is exactly what I have been doing for these 4 1/2 years that I have had this job. On TV not long ago they said canned and even some packaged food is good 2-3 years or even longer after it’s expiration date. The Food and drug administration makes manufacturer’s put a date on everything just to cover themselves and retailers. But they are the ones who are saying it’s still good past that date. For years and years people and the gov’t have been storing food in case of disasters. Even though they’re trying to say it had nothing to do with how many years I had in the company I know better!!! So does all my family and friends. They’ve all told me they know I’m the kind of person who would never do anything wrong. I could tell Carl Largent didn’t like me when I first met him. I was good friends with his wife when she worked beside in the Hannibal store. Her name is Maryann Largent. Other management knew we were giving outdated food to Feed America because they had to check the boxes randomly before feed America got them. Here are their names: Yvonne Thomas, (who is now store manager in CA), Sally Marquart, (overnight co-manager, Hannibal store), Christian Deter, (day co-manager, Hannibal, the one who finished the firing process), Jeremy Johnson, (day co-manager and gave me an excellent evaluation a few days before my dismissal). Dave Hinton, assistant manager, Hannibal). If you think I would jeopardize my job to do something I wasn’t supposed to do I would be a very foolish person. Plus jeopardize my retirement and my benefits, and my integrity and honest character I have built up after 31 years at Wal-Mart. And one last thing, I’m going to fight this all the way to the end no matter how long it takes!!! My husband’s and my friend’s and families have already been going to the store and getting angry with management and some have even written letters to the Home Office. My husband has been in the ministry as an ordained, licensed pastor for almost 30 years. He has preached in nearly 40 churches within 70 mile radius. He is already in the process of contacting every church he has preached in to gather more support from about a 1,000 people he has ministered to. Plus writing letters to newspapers and contacting local news media. We want an investigation into this matter of my being fired by Brent Moore ASAP!!!

I am having an extremely difficult time getting your expensive extended warranty people to make good on my claim.My tv is only nine months old and is broken down. Not only have they put me off every time I contact them, but they even lied to me saying someone was coming out on a certain date. Its been a month now and I am getting sick and fed up with it. I’ve always been a very loyal Walmart customer for many years, but that is rapidly changing. If something isn’t done real soon I’m going to have to seek help,maybe starting with the B.B.B.

I was an employee at the south post oak location in Houston Texas and I was wrongfully terminated due to I was hospitalized due to server chest pains which was later confirmed that my lung was collapsing and I had to have surgery where doctors actually had to remove the top part of my left lung I went in to the hospital on June 15th 2015 and was discharged on June 25th 2015 between the 15th and 25th while I was in the hospital not only myself but my mother and my partner also called my job to speak with someone to let them know what was going on when I called the Walmart associate line I always tried to speak with an overnight manager because I worked overnight but was only able to get actually talk to a manager the day after I was discharged and he told me to call someone in personal or come talk to a member of management so the following day I drove up there myself and took all of my hospital paperwork and documents to show a member of management that I was really in the hospital because I was really trying to keep my job I talked and showed all my paperwork to a assitant manager and was told that he was going to notify personal and if any other information was needed they would contact me but I never received any type of call I later was applying for medical assistance and needed confirmation that I was employed and that’s when I found out I had been terminated and I will take this matter to court if I have to because I was wrongfully terminated

I still have trouble wrapping my head around this. Flat out refuse to bake a cake with a Confederate flag on the front but will gladly bake a cake with the ISIS symbols and flag all over it. The Civil war ended 150 years ago but ISIS is RIGHT NOW and as we speak they are still beheading people. If Walmart doesn’t want to put the Confederate flag on a cake then that’s their option. But it was OBVIOUS that the second cake had middle eastern symbols on it and I question why the numbskull who took the cake order and the bakery boss didn’t question it. Take the time to maybe look it up to see what it exactly is. With the internet available it could have been found very quickly. Attention to all Walmart employees in the bakery dept,,,start paying more attention. Maybe Walmart should give an inservice to the bakery crew on how to recognize islamic and terrrorist flags and symbols.

m one very unhappy Customer.. I ordered this MP3 player on the 14th of July, and since then Walmart canceled my order, after taking my funds from my debit card, and also from my e-gift card which was issued to me to due to my product care replacement warrenty I had on my item.. Its been 1 week since this has happen, and I still do not have my product, nor do I have my funds back on my gift card.. I have had nothing but the right around with you guys.. I spend hours every night with you guys on the phone, and I get no wheres.. Im calling corporate today, if I dont hear back from you.. All i want is my $48.59 back on my card, or for you to issue me a new one.. You have my product that I sent back, and now have my gift card, but I have nothing in return.. Is this how you treat you customers, by stealing from them.. I will not stop trying to get this taken care of until i have what I should have from you.. Your customer service is full of liars.. Last night, one lady said I would have my egift card sent to me for $50.00, and I never got it, One rep said their manager would call me back one day at 9am, and never got call back.. I have gotten no wheres with you guys, and Im pissed.. So this is your final straw, you guys are the ones that canceled my product due to it being stuck in processing, and then you charged me, and Ive gotten nothing in return.. I give you until 24 hours to respond to this email, and get things straightened out, or I will go above and beyond, because this is not right.. Get this fixed now..

I am a over night stocker in Minnesota and the store I work at I was told by several associates that they turn the a/c off at night…..hello the night crew are about to pass out. We’re not dogs were humans just like the first and second shift crew are and if they expect us to work and get our tasks done in a timely manner then give us the cold air we deserve so we’re not sweltering because they wanna save on the a/c they are gonna have more doctor bills to pay because workers at night will be dropping like flies.I enjoy my job….I just wish somebody would understand our working conditions…..thank you for your time.I am being the voice for whoever else works the shift I work cuz I’m not ashamed to voice my opinion on the subject of the matter.

a bottle of coke exploded in my cart when at Walmart and ruined my clothes. The store manager replaced the soda and what about her ruined clothes, we had a bill for$36.53 you would think they would cover this small bill. Customer satisfaction, repair and etc their store logo is just a bunch of crap, this is Walmart in Flemington, N.J.. Cosco store is being built they will lose our business and referrals.

Does Walmart really care about customer service anymore? The stores customer service is unacceptable. Walmart.com customer service dosen’t no anything and unable to fix issues. Maybe the media should be contacted to make all aware they no longer care and should be boycotted

I live in texas and I am certain that we have the worst Wal-Mart ever!!!.
They started out taking comp ads and every time I go in there they have a new rule. The lastest is that they do not take Mexican store ads any longer. There is an Aldi`s down the road that they do not except that ad either. They also not longer do brand for brand ads. It really makes me angry. If I can’t get the best deal at Wal-Mart why even go there. Our store also has a problem with inventory. It is either in the wrong place with the wrong price or the shelf is empty and stays that way for weeks at a time. I am at the point now where I would just rather go to another store and pay more for something that to give my money to Wal-Mart.

Dear WalMart; My son works at your Gibsonia, Pa store. At the end of the month he is to have brain surgery. His doctor called the manager of my son’s store and asked if my son could have some time off before the surgery so the my son could prepare both physically and mentally for this ordeal. The Gibsonia store manager said that it was impossible to let my son off work to prepare for his operation. He is on SSI and he only works four, four hour shifts a week. My phone number is 724-869-****. Any help from you would be deeply appreciated. Thank You, Kenneth R Ebel

I enjoy being able to order from Wal-Mart, it saves us from having to call people to help us so often because my husband and I are disabled! I order once or twice a month at least, animal food for dogs and cats and few other food products to bring it to free shipping. As of late nearly everything is damaged, cans are bent, orders are all thrown in the box together so cookies are mush, prunes were busted open and loose in the box, oatmeal and Pop-tarts ruined, just crushed. It’s like there is no thought now of how to pack, just throw in all in there and ship loose together, hardly ever any packing material anymore, if it was at the grocery store the watermelon would be on top of the eggs and bread, get it? Please have them do better, I can’t afford to keep throwing stuff out because of the poor packing. I did call the local store and complained about this and ask for a number to call they gave me a number that didn’t even work. What service!
Most people hate to go to Wal-Mart for us, the stores are full of shoppers and there are maybe 2 registers open, the wait is forever. Now you have commercials about finally paying higher wages, not much good unless you actually hire workers ! You should be getting better in all you do after all these years of practice, not worse!

I will never order from Walmart.com again. I ordered a treadmill which was dumped outside, no help getting it in. We had to hire people to bring it upstairs as my husband is a heart patient and it comes in a very big box. We get it upstairs, assemble it and it doesn’t work. I called ICON, who handles the technical support, and upon removing the motor cover, discovered that it had shattered during shipping apparently. First they ordered the wrong part, then the part I need is out of stock and they don’t know when it’s coming in. Then, I tried to deal with Walmart.com customer service and they were very rude and not helpful, except for one gentleman. Irving and John were horrible. No one seems to care. We were told to put the treadmill outside and someone will pick it up. I spend $1000 a month at Walmart and belong to several clubs that use Walmart as their main source. Guess what? Not anymore. Walmart isn’t the only game in town. Maybe if more people complain about their experiences Walmart won’t have the big business attitude and NO customer service at all. The item was a Gold’s Gym 320 treadmill – don’t order it because you’ll never get help!!!!!

Very disappointed today. I want my order completely refunded right away. I ordered a bike online on June 15th- Available for in store pick up on June 19th. That got pushed back to June 30th. It is July 1st and nothing yet. Also, once it arrives it needs to be put together. The tracking info never worked. I called customer service and wanted it refunded. I had a gift card for $97- (the gift card was from a Huffy bike I returned because it fell apart after ONE week)- I do not want a walmart gift card, so why can’t the full amount of $163.08 go back on my Visa Card? The woman who helped me was nice, but all I wanted was a bike… I will never buy a bike from Walmart again. How do I even know this is being refunded? I was on the phone for over a half hour and refuse to call again.

This complaint concerns the Walmart in Yreka, CA store, a few issues dealing with out of stock items and long checkout waits. Recently I went to purchase 40# Purina chicken scratch. Normally there are big tier shelves filled with this product. For the past week, the shelves have been bare. When I asked the older gentleman who works the department about this and when to expect re stock, he ignored me and took care of someone else. Also had to wait over an hour in checkout line and if I didn’t need the cart full of items for a dinner party, I would have walked out and left it. Your online forms pages are not working properly. Not simple, not user friendly and “server error, try later”. WHAT BS.
