A Walmart shopper has shared how he caught the attention of employees in a store’s “ghost town.”
TikToker Will, who goes by the name @charlestonboy843, shot a now viral video showing the hack.
“Walmart employee hack will be localized,” reads the text on the screen at the beginning of the video.
“Fucking frustrating as a damn man,” says Will.
“Can never find employees at Walmart.”
He then finds a phone with a posted list of the store’s intercom numbers and decides to call an associate for himself.
“Hi, if I could get some help in the electronics department, please, I’d be grateful,” he says over the intercom.
“If I could please get some help in the electronics department that would be great.
“I’m trying to buy a computer,” he continues.
Will repeatedly uses the intercom to get the employees’ attention, referring to the store as a “ghost town”.
“Not a soul,” Will says, panning the video to show the store with no employees.
He tried the intercom again and said, “Any Walmart employee who has access to the laptops in the electronics department, please come down.”
“Thank you very much.”
Finally, an employee goes into the electronics department, where Will writes in the on-screen text that the man is “fucked”.
“He told me I should have walked around until I found someone,” Will claims.
The video has been viewed almost 3 million times and thousands of TikTokers have given their thoughts on the situation.
“As a Walmart employee, good for you dude,” one TikToker commented.
“He wasn’t mad that you used his intercom, he was mad that you beat him up for not being on his ward,” wrote another.
“I can never find an employee, but you can guarantee someone will be waiting at the door to check your receipt,” said another.
“Yeah, the reason it’s taking so long is because the same person is probably covering 4-5 different areas because they can staff their business properly,” said another.
The US Sun has reached out to Walmart for comment.
