I know a way to hurt Walmart
If the employees decided to never buy Walmart products. I'll bet that the purchases made by Walmart employees of Walmart products is significant.
Now this may not be a good idea. But as a threat it may have some value. I know employees of Starbucks drink plenty of coffee.

12. You repeating that does not give my friend a discount
Maybe he's supposed to get a discount. Maybe that's company policy. Neither of those things, nor your assertion, provide him with a discount.

13. A few years ago I worked there.
I worked several different shifts. One of which was 4pm - 1am inventory shift, so I worked part of the time with the night stockers when a truck came. All the employees get a discount, it's a company wide policy.

14. I'm thinking just the opposite.
After Holiday returns impact a corporations bottom line. Walmart
may have a slim margin between cost and retail price in order to
keep their prices so competitive.
I'd like to hear from someone with some knowledge on the subject.
Wondering if those of us that would never shop there did the opposite
of a boycott. Bought one product and returned it following their company
return policy so the we received a full refund within 30 days after purchase.
If we used a credit card it may even be a more costly process for handling
and credit card company charges to the retailer.
This would also require the staff to handle returns at the register, restocking
etc. so would not contribute to job loss.
I just really despise Wallmart.
