WALMART employees have revealed the most dangerous parts of the job – from towers of crates to armed customers.
A retail job at Walmart may seem safe, but workers face unexpected dangers.
Last month a Walmart employee in Loveland, Colorado was killed after being hit by a vehicle in the store’s parking lot.
“Hell, even some of the customers are dangerous.
“It’s not the most dangerous job in America, but it’s moving up the list.”
One of the dangers Walmart workers face are precarious towers of boxes lined up like skyscrapers in the back room.
Tight deadlines mean employees rush to unload trucks and stack pallets of boxes without thinking about safety.
A Walmart worker in Iowa said that “you can’t move” once the back room is filled with pallets.
Even more alarming is the danger posed by angry, armed customers.
A Walmart worker inside Michigan said: “I was gunned down for refusing to sell a customer a demo display of a Bluetooth speaker.”
Between January 2020 and November 2022, there were 363 incidents of gun violence and 112 deaths in Walmart’s 4,700 stores.
A Walmart employee in Illinois said: “About five years ago, a pregnant manager was on the phone in broad daylight in her car.
“Someone got into the car behind her with a gun. They took their car with them.”
The worker said, “We’re constantly getting people to come and turn the parking lot into their own race track.”
It comes as two people in Ohio are suing Walmart after a pressure cooker allegedly inflicted them with “serious burns”..
Walmart is also being sued after allegedly indicting an Alabama employee caught filming a four-year-old child in the store’s bathroom.
A Walmart customer in Texas has been arrested after offering another client half a million dollars for her baby.
