Hundreds of people waited, some for several hours, outside the Sam's Club store in Fairbanks in below-zero temperatures Friday, hoping to buy items at sharp discount before the store closes at the end of the month.
"I liked my job but I think I am going to look for something else now".
"It's how we have to serve our customers", Hatfield said.
"Right now that's what the customer wants", she said. "But this isn't about Clubs versus online sales".
Walmart now has two ECommerce hubs in the USA - in Fort Worth, Texas, and Swedesboro, N.J. - supporting all of its online sales, according to Hatfield. "We are early in the stages of assessing the opportunities". The conversion of stores to e-commerce sites also illustrates how companies are trying to leverage their store locations to better compete against Amazon as shopping moves online.
Though numerous employees at the New Caney location were fairly new as the store opened just a year ago, Hatfield said some employees may still qualify for Walmart's new bonus system, which is based on length of service. At least two locations in Houston closed without notice to employees, news station KHOU reported.
The restructuring comes the day after Walmart announced it will raise its starting hourly wages to $11, expand parental leave benefits, and give cash bonuses to employees of up to $1,000.
The one-time bonus represents a $400 million expense, the company said.
For the first time, Walmart also promised to help with adoptions, offering full-time hourly and salaried workers $5,000 per child that can be used for expenses such as adoption agency fees, translation fees and legal or court costs.
