I used to work at Walmart – there’s a reason the security gates beep at the entrance and it’s not always anti-theft
A TIKTOKER claiming to be a former Walmart employee has revealed some of the store’s “biggest secrets”.
Hae is a TikTok user who is followed by nearly 1.5 million people on the app who like videos he shares on a variety of topics.
The user, known as @Imnothae, claims to have worked at Walmart in the past and recently posted a video saying he was sharing the store’s “biggest secrets”.
“I used to work at Walmart, so I know exactly what I’m talking about,” Hae said in the video, while wearing a yellow Walmart employee vest with a name tag that read “Hayward.”
Hae pointed out that the security gates in some Walmart entrances “are not working.”
He said that the store “might as well put them up for decoration”.
If the alarm goes off after someone walks through them, “it’s not because you’re stealing,” Hae claimed.
“That’s because they’re broken,” the TikToker added.
The apparent ex-Walmart employee even told his followers that the store usually has cashiers, “we’re just not out there,” he explained.
He said cashiers are likely in the break room if shoppers don’t see one at their posts.
“Imma just gotta be honest,” he admitted.
As Walmart has started eliminating cashiers from its locations, many shoppers have complained about the lack of employees to help them check out.
“The Walmart shopping experience is literally the worst,” someone said on Twitter.
“Smells like feet, can’t find anything, no cashiers in sight and no bags to speak of. It makes me want to buy fewer things,” they added.
Another person on the app said, “Checked out at Walmart yesterday. Not a single full service lane open?”
They continued: “I asked the lady at the self checkout if they had registers available. She said she was one? I said if any full service checkouts were open. She said no. “
With almost 14,000 likes on Hae’s TikTok video, many other users agreed with the things he shared about Walmart.
“I worked at Walmart, that’s right,” said one person.
Someone else asked, “Why [you] to embarrass us cashiers?”
A TikToker added that Hae “ratts [the] Cashier out.”
With a crying emoji, one user said, “They just turn my Walmart into a self-checkout.”
“When I walked past it and it beeped, the guy just kicked it and it stopped,” shared another person.
Walmart was contacted for comment.
