Walmart’s lp leaves at 10 in most stores. Usually they only have one guy onduty at a time. With management helping them when needed.

I've actually seen three guys at a time on duty at my Walmart. The reason I know they're LP is that I know one of the guys - he went to our high school but he's younger than me. And the two guys talking to him weren't in Walmart uniforms, but followed this guy back into the employees area. LP guys are so easy to spot. But I'm not going to post what makes them easy to spot, in case any LP are reading this. Why correct the enemy when he's making mistakes?

I thought Walmart didn't have LP on duty in the middle of the night?
