Suppliers know the value of staying current with Walmart’s latest in methods, reports and systems, and 8th & Walton classes have helped thousands become better partners with Walmart. Read the reviews from our students.

The classes were fantastic! I really learned a lot, and Lori and Heather were great instructors. They gave quite a few “real world” applications and shared stories, which further helped in the training process.

Lori is a great trainer. She was patient and thorough. I signed up for this training because I did not feel confident in a system of which I am supposed to be an expert user, and came out feeling very confident with a lot of new ideas on how I can improve company understanding and practices of Walmart data reporting. Well worth it, Thank you!

I really enjoyed the 3 day training with Lori! I am primarily a DSD supplier, so a lot of the stuff was fairly new to me, but I still picked up several tips and tricks that applied to my business. Big takeaways: - Efficiency in Retail Link. - Tips/Tricks in DSS. - Better understanding of terms and their applications. - How to communicate with the buyer. Lori did a great job keeping us engaged and teaching the material.

- Karsten - 7/20/21 Assistant VP of National Sales

The training is one of the best I have been through. The exercises were meaningful and easy to follow. I not only learned how to navigate Retail Link, but I left the training with a bunch of actionable reports that I can modify to meet any business need. Lori was awesome and kept things moving. I would recommend to anyone looking to better understand Retail Link.

I got some very useful details from the class. I love learning and have done quite a bit of training with 8th & Walton over the years although it's been a while. I am getting ready to hire a new sales support person, so I will definitely have her sign up for this program. I thought the 1st session was FABULOUS in explaining GTINS and hierarchies and would be very helpful for a new person not familiar with those concepts.

- Ran - 9/8/21 US Supplier

Accounting, Invoicing & Deductions (US)

Heather was amazing and shared quite a few interesting points on best business practices. I changed my role from Sales Analyst to Deductions Analyst. Although I had 5 years behind me on the Walmart Sales end, I had no training on the Accounting end which prompted me to take the course. I found it very helpful on the Accounting end. For the most part, I already knew topics in the presentation, but it was good to fill in some of the blanks and grey areas I had questions on.

Accounting, Invoicing & Deductions (Canada)

It was a good class.
