I believe the thought behind Walmart doing this is because they think vendors are the biggest cause of theft in their stores and with this program they can watch us, know where we are, what we're doing, etc. I can't see how this program can possibly help their business and I can see how it could hamper them. Regardless, I doubt this will stick and I suspect there will be manufacturers and distributors who will want something done with their product in Walmarts and because they don't like the ones that are allowed in, for whatever reason, they'll hire people to do blind work. So we'll have to go into Walmart and sneak what we're doing.

I have done this in the past with companies walmart would not allow in. Take pictures and even purchase product to prove it was out.

Wal Mart will never learn that cutting floor people will never work. Are you reps going to be responsible to report shoplifting too?

Where I live Premium has been advertising for merchandisers for the past 3 weeks. They have called me 9 times. I keep telling them I'm not interested.

Be super specific with the screeners. I was mostly set to accept a position covering 3 Walmarts. Asked to speak to a DM who actually had done the work. The actual job only vaguely ressembled what the office screener described.

I heard through another merchandiser that Walmart has now gone down to three merchandising companies. Anyone know if this is true?

I saw a Premium company person in there the other day, only one I've seen except Hallmark. I had a job in WM today servicing fabric area (not part of favored 5 companies), I had a letter of authorization, so they escorted me back to receiving and the receiver asked me what to do in that situation. I said I didn't know, she said she knows me from coming in there before so she let me have a badge. Glad that was my last trip.

A cashier told me that they are only getting about 4 hours a day. Her register was not working properly and it charged me twice for 2 items. She told someone about it, but they did nothing. I hope people check their slips. She said the store is getting more self-checkouts, I guess they are trying to force customers to use self-checkout. She had the only open register besides express, there was a line extending from her register clear back through the clothing. Finally someone in line yelled at a clerk to see if they could possibly get checkout help.

Not true...yet.

There are still five Preferred Vendor Partners calling on Walmart: Anderson, ACOSTA, Crossmark, SAS/Advantage and Premiere/Premium.

I have heard the rumors that they will reduce that number to three, and I have my suspicions as to which two will be cut and why, but, as this is Walmart we're talking about, who knows?
