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.
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.
