What Do The Codes Mean On The Walmart Loudspeakers In Louisiana Stores?
You've probably been shopping at Walmart before when a store associate said a code or phrase over the loudspeakers. What did it mean? We have all the details.
A website called Common Cents Mom says we should be paying attention to those codes and it could even save your life if you know what they mean.
I worked at Walmart through college and again years later as an assistant store manager for 8 1/2 years before returning to radio. Codes over the intercom system are a great way for associates and management to communicate with a large number of associates in the store at the same time.
It can be something as simple as instructing associates on what area of the store needs to be zoned (items pulled forward on the shelves and pegs) or it can be to alert associates and customers of potential threats.
According to the article, Walmart codes are broken down into four categories:
- Customer Service
- Sales & Discounts
When you hear codes that contain colors over the loudspeakers at Walmart, that's when you need to start paying attention.
What Do The Color Codes At Walmart Mean?
Code Orange - Chemical Spill in the store
Code White - Injury in the store
Code Red - A fire in the store
Code Black - Severe Weather in the area
Code Blue - Bomb threat in the store
Code Green - Active hostage situation in the store
