Walmart is weathering some harsh criticism — from their own employees.
In the wake of a Gawker story that shared less-than-flattering emails from Walmart workers, the retail giant asked employees to send Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan some stories that attested to the greatness of the company.
While some of the respondents did Walmart’s bidding, others bravely posted their true thoughts on the company’s practices, right on their employer’s own website.
One worker unfortunately seemed somewhat resigned to his fate:
Sadly, the Gawker stories match my Walmart experience.
Another suggested that there could be retaliation for speaking out:
Isn’t it funny that these stories ‘aren’t true,’ and yet many of us are too scared to post our disagreement, lest we lose our job? I read the Gawker reports: There’s not one bit that I haven’t experienced myself.
This employee commented on Walmart’s obvious cover-up effort:
I choose not to tell my Walmart experience. All you corporate people want is the sunshine stories. You don’t want the reality.
We’re guessing that’s not exactly what they were after, but you can only hide the truth for so long.
