10 Secrets Walmart Doesn’t Want You To Know (Part 2)

10 Secrets Walmart Doesn’t Want You To Know (Part 2)


When it comes to giant retailers, Walmart
is a cut above the rest. It is the largest private employer in the US. And its annual
revenue is in the hundreds of billions. That’s the budget of a small European country. But
not everything is rosy for the large corporation. No company wants anything out there that would
tarnish its image. So let’s uncover 10 Secrets Walmart Doesn’t Want You To Know (Part 2). Owned by a Wealthy Family The first fact about Walmart relates to the
owners. Understandably this is one nugget the wealthy family wouldn’t like to get
around. But it’s not exactly a secret that the Waltons own the large retailer which makes
them the richest family in the world. Even oil companies can’t compete with the riches
of these guys. So what does that tell us besides the fact that the first part of the retailer’s
name comes from the family name? It actually tells us a lot. Especially if we add another
fact about the low wages and harsh working conditions of the employees. We’ve already
covered that point in Part 1 of this series. When you think of the richest family in the
world adding billions to their wealth every year while the employees are only getting
poorer, you can understand why the Waltons prefer to stay out of the limelight. Now don’t
get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with being rich. The only thing that is wrong here
is that if you as the owner keep getting richer by exploiting your workers and not sharing
your profits with them. Walmart would rather pay the shareholders than raise the wages
of the employees to $15 an hour. We’ve all heard about corporate greed, but this one
takes the cake. Day-Old Bread is just as Yummy That was a dark start. So let’s turn our
attention to something that would benefit you if you shop at Walmart. It’s about bread.
We all love the smell of fresh bread. But living in a city makes the chance of seeing
fresh bread coming out of the oven as rare as spotting a unicorn strolling down Times
Square. And since most of us get our bread from the supermarket, the expiry date is the
way to tell if it’s actually fresh or not. If you buy your bread from Walmart, take a
walk down the bakery aisle. There you’ll find day-old bread and other bakery products.
For one thing, they’re cheaper than the fresh ones. But other than the price, there’s
not much difference between them and the ones that were baked on the same day. They both
taste the same, smell the same, and look the same. So why not save a few bucks on your
bakery items every week? You can get a loaf of bread for as low as one dollar. Of course,
Walmart offers these huge discounts because the company would rather sell them at any
price rather than throw them away. So it’s a win-win for everyone. Cheap Labor We’ve talked before about big corporations
running overseas sweatshops and sometimes utilizing child labor to cut down on costs
and increase their profit. A quick Google search will yield plenty of scandals of this
type. But what’s new here is that you don’t need to go overseas to find cheap labor. Why
go through the trouble when you have private prison systems that offer an endless supply
of convicts all year round? And it’s all legal. Now, these convicts who are forced
to work for as low as $2 an hour don’t work directly for Walmart. There’s no chance
of that. Just think of the public outcry if you discovered that the guy who stocked the
shelves at the fresh produce section was a convict serving a life sentence. It wouldn’t
look good. So instead these modern-day slaves work in farms harvesting veggies and fruits.
What’s more, it turns out that this systematic exploitation of prisoners isn’t unique to
the US either. In China, this unjust practice is widespread and involves forcing prisoners
to work 14 hours a day in harsh and inhumane conditions. And all so that we can get our
groceries at a low price while the shareholders in Walmart get higher returns on their investment.
Welcome to the real world. The Sweet Dollar Deals We mentioned that if you know where to look
you can find a loaf of bread selling for one dollar at Walmart. Luckily there’s no cheap
labor involved here and the low prices are part of a marketing campaign to attract customers.
Furthermore, a loaf of bread is not the only thing you can get for a buck at the giant
retailer. Much like a dollar store, Walmart offers its customers the occasional dollar
deal to keep them coming back. The trick is to know when such deals are on and which aisles
have the coveted cheap merchandise. Sometimes you can get shampoos, deodorants, and other
personal grooming products at a dollar apiece. So it’s always a good idea to check there
more often. You’ll also find gift cards and greeting cards for this low price all
year round. These gifts are reserved for the people you don’t care very much about but
still have to send them a gift anyway. Some websites like I Heart the Mart keep a page
dedicated to these dollar deals at Walmart. So it’s worth checking there before you
head over to your nearest Walmart for your regular shopping. Walmart and the Cops We all try to love and respect the police.
From a distance, that is. Nobody likes to have a cop tailing them. On the road, a police
car is always better ahead of you than behind you. This is not a reflection of a guilty
conscience. It’s just that when a cop approaches, it’s often followed by a knot in your stomach
and the assumption you must have done something wrong – or that you’re about to blamed for
something you didn’t do. Walmart, on the other hand, has a deep love for cops. See,
Walmart employees like to call the cops a lot. More so than other businesses that deal
with the public. Someone lifts a $3 pack of tissues? Call the cops. A hungry guy makes
it out the door with a day-old loaf of bread? Bring the wrath of the police force on them.
It’s ridiculous. Where’s the Walmart security, I hear you ask? Well, that’s the point.
Walmart would rather the local cops handle incidents of petty theft than the company
pay for their own security system. Why hire mall cops when you have the men and women
in blue a phone call away? And if you’re thinking that this would only stretch the
police force and keep them from dealing with a serious crime, you wouldn’t be wrong.
But that trivial point doesn’t seem to bother the management at Walmart, as long as it keeps
costs down. Free Shipping Obviously This is one nifty trick that many people may
not know about and will save you a lot of money and time while you’re shopping. If
you like to shop online, you’ll be pleased to know that Walmart delivers your purchases
to your home free of charge. The minimum order has to be $35, however. Sweet. But what if
your order is less than that? Easy. You can choose the ship-to-store option. It means
your order will be ready for you to pick up at any store of your choosing. Here’s how
you can use that option to your advantage. Say your day is packed with errands and you
don’t have time to go to Walmart and spend hours walking down aisles, picking stuff,
and having to wait in lines at the cashier. Just make your shopping trip online and have
them ship it to the store. Now all you need to do drop by the store later that day or
the next day and pick up your order. It doesn’t get easier than that. You save time and also
money since online prices are usually cheaper than the ones in the physical store. Win the Price Wars I think we can all agree that one of the best
features of capitalism is the fact that it doesn’t tolerate one person or company to
have a monopoly over the market – usually. At least there are rules and regulations in
place to prevent such manipulative practices. And no matter what you think of Walmart or
its closest rival, Amazon, you must appreciate their rivalry. As consumers, we like to see
the price wars rage on as each retailer tries to seduce us with huge discounts and amazing
promotions. It’s a thrilling feeling to snag a deal online or buy a TV set for next
to nothing. So the question now is, how can you best benefit from the price feud between
the two giants? Easy enough: compare prices online and make sure you get the best deal.
There’s no point in being a loyal customer to one retailer or the other when you can
save real cash on your weekly shopping. Remember that free shipping service we talked about
previously? It wouldn’t be possible if Amazon wasn’t trying to woo customers with free
shipping as well. It’s a great time to be alive, isn’t it? Seek the Coupons One of the best things about Walmart is that
it allows you to keep the change on your coupon. Say you have a $10 coupon and you made a purchase
for $8.35, that leaves you with $1.65. Walmart will let you keep that dollar, 65 cents and
use it in future shopping. Now you can understand why your Aunt Myrtle spends hours scouring
papers and website looking for Walmart coupons. So where can you get your hands on these coupons?
We’ll save you the embarrassment of having to ask Aunt Myrtle (she probably won’t tell
you anyway, not after you insulted her pooch and called her cat neurotic) and we’ll just
refer you to some good websites. You can visit I Heart the Mart or Passion for Savings to
find coupons and special deals. It also helps to follow Walmart on social media such as
Twitter where they post special offers on a regular basis. Chasing coupons might sound
like a waste of time. But when you see the savings you can make on your grocery shopping,
you’ll probably change your mind and decide to make coupon hunting a regular pastime of
yours. And nobody has to know. It’s all in the Price Tag This is definitely a secret that Walmart wouldn’t
want you to know about. It has to do with the price tag code the company uses. When
you see a new item on the shelf such as a lamp or toaster, you might be tempted to buy
it before it gets picked by other customers. But that’s not usually a good idea. Time
is on your side here when planning your shopping strategy. Large retailers like Walmart don’t
like products with a heavy butt. By that, we mean items that stay on the shelves for
months on end. A quick turn over is the goal of every retailer. So when an item sits around
for weeks without making a sale, the company usually gives it a new price tag with a discount.
So how do you know if this is the first price tag or a final one? That’s where the price
tag code comes in. If the price tag ends with a 7, then it’s a new item and this
is the original price. So a pen that sells for $2.97 means it just got here and if you
wait a little, the price will come down. The discounted price usually ends with a 5. So
a few weeks later you might find the same pen selling for $2.35. When the product still
won’t sell, Walmart will give it a few more discounts. The final price usually ends with
a 1. Keep that in mind the next time you want to buy at the retailer. New Parents get Free Stuff As we mentioned before, not all big corporations
are evil. And not all their marketing strategies are aimed at snaring the customers and fleecing
them. Certainly not this one, which is a good practice by the giant retailer. New parents
will get a free baby box. You’ll need to fill out a form on the Walmart website. Just
navigate to the baby box page to apply. Sure enough, Walmart will send a baby box to your
home free of charge. So what’s in the box? Well, as expected, you’ll find lots of stuff
related to babies. From pacifiers to diapers, nursing pads, wipes, and feeding bottles.
Most of these free samples will give you a leg up in the new parenthood thing and help
you try the products before you buy them. Naturally, you’ll be purchasing loads of these
baby items so it’s always a good idea to know which brands are good for your baby. Stick around and tap that screen to check

  2. They would not put lifters out side the prison. Get your info right. Some prisoners will get off parole with job experience.

  3. So smart having the cops come in. It cuts the liability cost from fraudulent thieves because your company doesnt do the confrontation.

  4. You could not pay me to shop at Walmart. They exploit their workers and cause small businesses to close down. Not worth me saving a dollar or two at the expense of others. They also get billions in government subsidies so there is no excuse for those rotten a holes to not pay their workers a fare wage. None. Most of their employees are on welfare. When you shop at Walmart you support modern day slavery.

  5. Of course They call the cops Do you realize How Bullshit Customers can be to often Customers anywhere Are abusive and were not even talking about actual crimes.

  6. You get paid pretty fairly for the work you do at Walmart. I worked there for a year and a half and just recently left. The job is very easy and damn near anybody can do it.

  7. I hate how there 20 registers and never one open , so they make you scan n bag your own stuff . So I ALWAYS skip scan a few items.oops

  8. Propaganda piece. Wal-Mart employees are getting poorer hu? What king of libtard 101 thinking is that? They have a job. Hence a pay check. What a crock of shit this video is

  9. Our Walmart went out of business in Saint Paul Mn last month because Walmart sucks, also because Target is considered a local company here since Target is a MN started company so Walmart doesn’t get much love around here. Target gets the business more. Even tho it costs more. I never shopped at Walmart but went to the Walmart closing sale, and it was INSANE. People were running around, there was a fight, lots of theft and folks trying to run out the door carrying items etc stuff was thrown all over the store on floors etc. I left

  10. I quit shopping with Walmart about a month ago when I found out I couldn’t get my bullets on my gun I hope other people do the same thing

  11. "a hungry guy lifting a loaf of bread?" Nope…. Our cops are always at walmart and it's never just a 3 dollar item. It whole carts full of electronics. And when they are not busy busting shop lifters they scan every car in the lot looking for criminals. I love that our force is always visible at Walmart. And even then, it doesn't seem to deter anyone from breaking the law. Until we take the revolving doors off the prisons we will continue to have problems.

  12. Walmart throws everything they can give it to the homeless or the food bank they rather throw it away erase candy item that is old and get a credit for it

  13. And there is cheap labor if the managers think you're a good worker they'll give you 40 to 50 cent raise but if the managers don't like you $0.25 a year a lot of the managers have favoritism

  14. The Walton family are a bunch of scumbags. Put 30 registers at store that opened and now changed to 2 lanes open and forcing customers to do self check out to get even cheaper on employees and now sudden "checking your receipt" as you walk out door when it is illegal to do that so we, the customers, are treated like convicts, only we are paying them to treat us like crap. Walton family is also tied in with govt and tight with Bush family. They perform facial recognition on every single person who sets foot in their FEMA camp store and it goes right to govt databases along with a million cameras snapping your picture from aisle to aisle, self checkout, walking out door, to protect their crap China made garbage, as well as "lot cops" all over parking lots. They have been doing it for years. They need to be run out of town on a rail. Screw WalFart. All employees should walk hell out on this POS family. I no longer shop at this totalitarian store, treasonous store

  15. Are the employees worth $15 an hour? Not the ones I've meet! I know people working in factories and construction for those wages. Walmart is not really a career unless you have a degree. It's a kids job. Find a career, grow a business and become part of a free market where you set your own wage. Don't be a sheep and ask for minimum wage.

  16. 15 an hour yea ok…. unless your management you should strive for more then stocking shelves for 15 an hour. Sounds more like a hit piece.

  17. I employee you, If you think Walmart is such a Great Company….. Go work there… Then decide for yourself. It is New Age Slavery.I did, 3 year in one store, 2 years in another. I Hate Walmart.

  18. I have NO problem with criminals working for their keep. This is exactly why this country is fucked up. No one is held accountable for their actions. Oh the poor criminals. If they hate working in prison then stay the hell out of trouble. It really is that simple. I think chain gangs should be reinstated.

  19. The Waltons are no where near being the richest family in the world. The Rothschild family and several other banking families have far more money. Even the Suadi family who Saudi Arabia is named after far exceeds we wealth of the Walton family.

    "INVESTIGATE FOR YOURSELF"

  20. B's everything you said was wrong.they get profit sharing in the store. Long term employees make 25 dollars and hour.before they recently change there policy .20 year employee got one week paid during christmas.and a turkey.now in Feb that all employee who don't use vacation get paid so it's possible to get 2000 dollar check it was great working when Sam was alive

  21. Bonus secret…the gentleman who owns the most shares of Wal-Mart outside of the family lives in Temple, Texas, where he still wears polyester pants and packs a sack lunch to go to work at a company of his own name. At one time he was part owner of the Houston Astros. His father patented the shipping container.

  22. i am shocked to hear all this ,i would not shop there ,vote with your money ,if you don't like this information don't shop there ! they would soon start treating there staff better if you all did this.

  23. I worked at Wal-Mart for 9 yrs. 5 as a slave level, back breaking over night sticker. Sounds easy right? Nope. For every department there's 1 worker, sometimes 1 worked 2 or 3 departments alone without help. I'm 5'9 and 115lbs and they had me in Pets, and chemicals. Which is the cleaning product aisle. Forget the fact that I'm pulling heavy cases of detergents and dog food around, having to lift above my head, and pull pallets of merchandise behind my back that was equivalent to pulling a compact car, you have to do a certain amount per hour, and 1 person can have as many as 15 and 20 pallets of merchandise crammed in your area, to work alone, work every single pallet as fast as possible, put back what was over stock, then pull pallets to the back room yourself. I did permanent damage to my back while working there, and begged to be put on Day shift, and for a year I damaged my back even more because I was told, "if you can't handle it McDonalds is hiring" I threatened with a lawyer and after 2 years out of the 5 crying to get day work, they made me a day shift dept supervisor. Lets see, oh, they will work you on events like Black Friday for as long as 15 hours, and instead of that adding up to a good paycheck they cut your days down for the next week to make sure you get 40 hrs and no over time. 1 more thing, it took me 9 yrs to go from making start $8.65 and en making $11.20. So any of you guys thinking about it, don't work there

  24. In the U.S. inmates are NOT forced to work. It is the Work Release program to help to integrate them back into society via a productive job. This statement is VERY misleading. Pushing a political agenda that is FAKE!!!

  25. Walmart is only in business because people keep going there. If everyone would stop going there and support their local businesses, Walmart would go bankrupt. Like K-mart & Sears.

  26. Go ahead and let them raise the wages to $15 an hour. In turn the price of everything, on every single shelf will go up. Also you'll have more self checkouts…
    Why?
    1. They don't demand higher wages
    2. They don't pump out baby self check outs, and have to take recovery time off
    3. They don't ask for days off and expect to get paid for them.
    3. They will never show up late
    4. They cost less than training and paying a generally worthless waste of oxygen at the only line open at the busiest time of day.

  27. Biased much!? I didn't see anything in this video that can't be said of Wal-Mart's competitors. It's pretty obvious you have a personal gruge against Walmart. 😠

  28. I do not go to Walmart unless there is absolutely no other choice. Unfortunately many small American towns have no other choice. Support your locally owned stores. The mom and pops. Be aware of who you give your money to.

  29. Owned by a rich family? You don’t say?😂 harsh working conditions?😂 employees getting POORER?😂 how dare a company call the police for a shoplifter!!!😂 and the maker of this video loves capitalism? Ha! Are you joking? Sounds like someone hates Walmart

  30. Dont get me wrong. I won't shop at Walmart. Because, I dont agree with their politics. But, theres nothing wrong with the Waltons getting wealthier every year—Thats capitalism! Sam Walton went broke about eight times before he made it big with Walmart. He worked hard and didnt give up. What does the average employee invest in a business other than 8 hours a day—9 times out of 10, usually nothing. Its a paycheck to them and that's about it. We all have the same opportunities to make our own paths just like Sam Walton, Warren Buffett or that little shit Zuckerberg. The reality is most of us would rather whine and complain about how unfair life is rather than get out there and take risks. I think it was Sam Walton who said "Its not how many times you fail. It's how many times you get up and keep trying." Look what it got him.

  31. This is stupid yea you get payed your state minimum wage example $12 in hawaii. But at the end of the year you get company profit share in bonus and 15% + 10% discount. Geez work at walmart and you will know.

  32. Only police can make arrests. The security cant make arrests they can detain. You think the security can have them in walmart jail. No they cant stupid.

  33. Employees are not exploited. They are free to go get a job elsewhere if they don't like the way they are being treated. I didn't watch the rest if your video after hearing that B.S.

  34. Only a MORON doesn’t understand why wages can’t be raised to $15 a hr but check with millennials and gen z for truly ignorant children. The person that made is ignorant as hell

  35. Walmart is one of the company ripping off the stupid people who willing to work over there and the stupid people must buy over there

  36. Huge 18" loaf of "new-bread" not
    "day-old-bread" at Lidl,..and it costs
    only .85 cents! Beat that Walmart.
    Comey Walmart stopped selling bullets! Fuq Walmart!

  37. Fuck all the prisons exploiting drug addicts for free labor making them work from 4am til 4pm instead of giving them treatment

  38. Um BabbleTop, I don't think your going to like this but, I worked for Walmart for 2 1/2 years and so did my wife. She worked in ladies wear at the fitting room, I was….are u ready??….the security supervisor. YES Walmart has it's own security in every store. Sorry but that point was wrong. I can also confirm our store and every store in our area never had any labor provided by prisoners for $2 an hour, we had a few parolee's getting minimum wage and up, some were OVER $15 an hour. In security we were told to use discretion for petty theft, like a hungry person stealing a sandwich we caught and released with warnings, a pensioner stealing eyeglasses we warned, a well dressed guy swiping a big screen TV went to jail…get it? Most of your video is bull, based on your hatred, but why not just tell the truth?

  39. 15 an hour is a crappy wage , I couldn't support my family on that , you all shouldn't care about minimum wage I wouldn't settle for a company that thinks of me as a minimum . Figure out what you need and our worth and tell the company you gotta have x amount of dollars per hour or start your own business.

  40. I already knew about all this. I grew up around old timers. They knew this. Been happening for a long time. Its y I only buy food there.

  41. Our local Walmart went through a remodel about a year ago. When it was done they were 3 or 4 managers less and 20 employees less.

  42. Ya lost me at Day old bread😂 it’s fresh baked has a shelf life of 3 days and gets reduced the day before it’s sell by. It’s donated by the time it’s “day old” most everything else on here was bullshit too. It’s a free country we live go work/shop someplace else we DONT CARE!!!!

  43. Wal-Mart does have security and local police thats why people change price tags on wal mart stuff I like buying Motor oil and Beer there cheap

  44. Couldn’t continue to watch this. The things your trying to say are bad about this company are ridiculous. I thought there might actually be some real secrets that you were sharing. Instead it sounds like you just want to babble and try to get higher ratings by making a headline that people will click on.

  45. I havent watched the first video but just incase this isnt mentioned yall might have noticed how walmart keeps moving specific things your after to different aisles or shelves or places on the shelfs it makes it a pain for those of us that just want to go in get what we need and get out. But few people really know why walmart keeps doing this, its also a sales pitch to get you to spend more money on crap you dont really need its called impulsive buying you buy it out of impulse and dont really need it, so they move things around in walmart so you see something else instead of what your really after i bet theres alot of people thats fallen for this trap, now you know you can stop falling for it. If its something you want or need its best to wait awhile keep your eye on it like the video says the price often drops. Before walmart started sweeping under shelves i use to hide certain items under the shelves or behind other places that it doesnt go behind an item thats always in stock and doesnt sale very much, you might ask what difference did that make it made alot of difference i used to collect the die cast model cars i found several i wanted and hide them at walmart till the end of the year clearance and what i had stashed away was put on clearance it was still in their system they just couldnt find it, so instead of paying 20 or 30 bucks for the item i ended up getting them for 3 to 5 dollars i havent tried this since they started sweeping under the shelves plus i dont hang around walmart everyday like i use to walmart ran me off told me i was banned never stole anything i was trying to get them to hire me i often helped people do their jobs for free which many of the workers remember me for i made many friends that way.

  46. This is just full of jealousy of successful business people. If you want a better life put some effort into it instead of being a parasite of the taxpayers. Get an education in an area where there are well paying jobs. Start your own business. Don’t sit on your hands begging for free stuff. Have ambition, no one owes you anything. It sounds like a feminist / communist whacko is narrating.

  47. Work at Walmart and get evicted out your apartment while the owners can spend a million a day and end up dead before they go broke

  48. I quit shopping there because they treat customers like the store is doing them a favour by allowing them to spend their money in the store.

  49. This is a huge load of bullshit. So many idiots hate on anything successful. If you don’t like it, don’t work or shop there. I promise you won’t be missed.

  50. Prisoners should work. We pay to house feed and put clothes on them. I'm all for prisoner work. Take them out of the prisons put them in tents and let's give the homeless and veterans a decent place to sleep.

  51. Wal-Mart runs facial recognition cameras . has photos of customers not. allowed to shop there . security cameras recognize who ever walk's In or out of their store .
