The Walmart Statement

We are focused on helping our customers during this recent time. The store is working as usual. As we’ve stated before, we have established washing and sanitizing rules with direction from the CDC and Walmart’s Chief Medical Officer.
We will proceed by taking any steps necessary to ensure the well-being of our friends and clients.” – comments Walmart its measures against coronavirus.
Placing Plexiglass Barriers
Those actions include reading updated plans to associates through videos and photos, as well as methods for cleaning to help implement clear direction. We own a voice-activated app called Ask Sam that partners could use to ask for washing patterns for any area of the store, and our stores have improved operating hours from 7am to 8:30 pm. to help colleagues restock shelves while maintaining to wash and sanitize the building.
Finally, Walmart has begun placing plexiglass barriers (sneeze guards) at their drugstore chains (both Walmart and Sam’s Club). They will put these guards at the annual Walmart personnel during the next three weeks. This is designed to help bring peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to keep our people and our buildings safe.
Additionally, Walmart is introducing floor decals at the entrances and in checkout lanes, making it more accessible for clients to judge the proper social distance from each other.
The Drug Chain Still Hires
Although COVID-19 is still dictating life rules all over the world, at Walmart, there are lots of opportunities – 150,000 of them. The pharmacy chain has lately declared that they would be hiring more than 150,000 colleagues, and these vacancies cover full-time, part-time, and temporary jobs in distribution centers (DCs) and fulfillment centers (FCs).
Walmart also gives bonuses like ahead training through Walmart Academies, way to affordable college, and, of course, equal pay. Depending on the area, DCs start between $17 and $18 per hour. FCS begins somewhere between $15 and $19 per hour. These numbers show a distinct, unstable pay increase for FC partners: From now through Memorial Day, pay for all hourly partners in FCs will increase $2/hour.
