A WOMAN has claimed she was fired from Walmart after 16 years for revealing some of the retailer’s secrets.
The alleged ex-employee said she was let go for giving an inside look at the grueling inventory process at her store in a viral video.
In the clip, the alleged worker, whose name is Stephanie, tears up one of her old work shirts and fist pumps as the text “Love hate feeling but here is to 2023 baby” appears on the screen.
She claimed that she was let go for her behind-the-scenes TikToks, and she even reshared one that allegedly got her in big trouble.
In the follow-up video, the Walmart coach took her followers through an inventory shift at the store and claimed that she was working 17-hour days.
“This is the worst inventory I’ve ever done in like 20 years of Walmart,” she said.
According to Walmart’s website, a coach “supports their team by making sure their goals align to the goals of the business” and assists co-workers with long-term career planning.
“I’m on three and a half hours of sleep. I worked 17 hours yesterday, and it’s day nine of 10,” the leader said.
She then shared videos of workers teaming around the store while they go through merchandise on the sales floor.

According to the ex-employee, the “inventory” people come into the store and count each of the items.
Then, the workers have to recount after them to double-check the numbers.
Stephanie recorded video of herself scanning barcodes on a handheld device and documenting how much of each item is on the shelf.
The process looks time-consuming, but ultimately the team managed to get the job done.
“13 hours later we finished,” she says at the end of the three-minute clip.
“I did not stay for the numbers, but I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be good.
“So that’s a wrap, I’m f*****g exhausted, I broke f*****g nails, so peace out, day 10 tomorrow and then vacation.
“Lord help me, I feel like I’m dead.”
Stephanie never specified why she got fired, but did post another follow-up video where she inferred the president of Walmart saw her TikToks.
“I bet he enjoyed every single one of them,” she wrote in the caption.
The news of her alleged firing sparked a debate in the comments about whether or not Stephanie’s posts warranted termination.
“Walmart fired you for what? Showing off their 1990s scanners & explaining how inventory goes in every store in America? Wow,” someone said.
Another person wrote: “And Walmart thinks that’s a secret??? That’s how all big box stores do inventory…”
A different user said the firing may have been due to her violating a “social media policy” the company could have.
“Not condoning you getting fired but Walmart probably have a social media policy that you may have breached by recording while on shift esp back store,” they wrote.
And others guessed that she may have simply gotten in trouble for being on her phone while at work.
The U.S. Sun has reached out to Walmart for comment on this incident, but it did not immediately respond.
Another Walmart employee revealed the secret way the retailer deals with stolen goods at checkout.
While another revealed an alleged secret about the store’s security cameras.
And it comes after Walmart unveiled a stunning new “store of the future” with updates that will “vastly enhance customer experience”.
