I worked for Wal-Mart electronics for a few years during my College days, and i'd honestly would have enjoyed smashing stuff up like that just to tell Wal-mart to go f**k themselves and eat the lost sales money before walking out the door giving them the finger.

yes, i hated working for them that much.

Why would you work in a place you hate so much? Why wouldn't you work somewhere else?

I personaly work at wal mart in electronics dept even though i hate the company because the way the mngr treat us. I'm just glad i have a full time job that help pays the bills and buy other things. NOT TOO many people are lucky to have a full time job thats not a HIGH SALARY job. I'm just glad I'm still working unlike that idiot. And we don't even trash items like the dumb a$$e$ in the video

The worker looks fat and with no hope so it must be real

Does anyone actually believe this video? Has it been confirmed by a reputable source? Just from judging the surrounding warehouse I would say it is NOT a Walmart facility. Walmart is a HUGE company and their distribution warehouses are big operations. I have done warehousing in my past and that looks like a fairly small and s**tty warehouse look at the racks behind the fellow "catching" the supposed "iPads". The racks only go 2-3 rungs high, I was in places with 38' ceilings w/ 8-10 rungs and we had no where near the Inv they do. and in a 300k sq. ft. area.

So I doubt that is a Walmart distribution warehouse.

just my 2cents

Those people in China are working their asses off to meet every iSheep's demands, and yet these Walmart workers do this for fun! Not to mention those people doing ridiculous drop tests and putting a bullet through them..

I worked at a Walmart distribution center while going to collage and my job was to load the Walmart trucks and I can tell you that they DO throw EVERYTHING into those trucks to fill them up. At the end of the day the truck looks like someone got a huge pill of boxes, and pushed the boxes into the trailer with a bulldozer. I only worked there for 2 weeks because I didn't like it but I quit saying I would never buy an electronic device from Walmart after seeing how they handle the merchandise.
