I have worked at Walmart for 3 months and moved right into a supervisory position. They do require a lot to be done but that's understandable. Over half of my coworkers are over 40 but that's because they actually work. The younger ones call off, don't show up, or don't work when they're actually there. Or oldest employee is 91 years old!

Walmart is not age friendly for anyone. I’d say at the store I applied and worked for they wanted to fill a hole. They hire anyone. The management for the area assigned has taken 14 days off for Covid each. So the area was running itself lol I learned quickly but the long time staffers there didn’t really want to help anyone new. I luckily got a decent person to help me. Next set of new people in long time staffers didn’t want to train. I said if you aren’t able I will feeling bad for the new person and knowing in my 2 shifts being trained I could help with most of the training because it wasn’t hard. Then a ignorant attitude new person started with some kind of I do this I do that telling pointing his finger. I told him do what you want in new too but I’m going to do as instructed. Reported him to upper, no one assisted. Got so bad with his harassment that I left. After 3 weeks of torture no assigned manager in area they were too late trying to change my mind about being needed here lol Please I gave written statements about the BS I was dealing with and no one did anything. They really don’t care there’s someone else out there that will fill their holes in staffing. Turned me completely off for Walmart’s don’t go in them anymore even as a customer.

They expect too much of their employees in a normal shift. The managers I worked for had NO PEOPLE SKILLS! All about getting the most work done in the least amount of time. Didn't matter what your age....People 40 years younger than me could not produce what they wanted. Usually easy to get time off BUT I think that was based that I always stayed over and came to work to fill in shifts. Came in to work on a "snow day" (late 8:30 AM) in January 2018 and there were 2 other people present ( Asst Manager and Maintenance associate) everyone else had called out. Manager said to me when I arrived "Oh your finally here!" Mentioned when I called late that It would be around 8:30 AM.. I lived 13 miles from the store... No appreciation for anything. Then lied to me repeatedly about getting my final paycheck for vacation time earned. Now ...Under Georgia Law they did not owe me that money but they kept saying we sill send you a check. Wish they would have told method Im not entitled to that the first time.

Was hired at Wal-Mart at age 54. Now turning 65 at Wal-Mart. Have been trained in e-commerce/Digital Shopper online and pick-up services using the latest tech devices. TC 72, Zebra Printers, Desk Computer with company programs and multiple apps. Company trained. I applied to be a stockman, but was immediately placed. In computer cashiering. Have been trained and served in Customer Service, Money services, Electronics, Photo Lab, Wireless Services, Self Check-Out, Check-Out-With-Me portable hip register, and now On-line Grocery and Pick-Up Today Services. I was asked by management to move in these departments. If you are willing to learn and stay on top of technology Walmart will train you. I see people in my age group decline technology training every week and they stay in the same position, or are moved into a less demanding position. Walmart will train you, if you have the will and discipline to learn.

I worked for company for 29 years. I was 59 at time. I was told I would be trained on new digital systems, but I wasn't. I was an Assistant manager for 19 yrs. They brought in a store manager to terminate me and other managers. He was gone a month after this happened. They could pay two younger managers for what they were paying me.

Testimonials:

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
