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.
- Michelle - 8/3/21 Category Management Analyst
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!
- Hannah - 7/22/21 Sr. Sales Analyst
I recently started with my company and did not have any prior Retail Link experience so they asked that I enroll in the training. The training went well and was very informative!
- Shannon - 7/21/21 Sr. Sales Administrator
The classes were wonderful! Extremely helpful and well worth it. I look forward to next week's classes. Thank y'all for the help!
- Kristin - 7/21/21 Business Analyst
Our class with Lori was great. She was able to walk us through the DSS module and the valuable reports that we can create. Her ‘recipe guides’ are very helpful
- Karyn - 7/21/21 Data Coordinator
The classes were great I learned a lot about how to navigate my way through Retail Link and how to run important queries that I believe will help us succeed and grow our business.

- Corey - 7/20/21 Sales Director
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.
- Rachel - 5/18/21 Director of Sales Operations
The class was informative and I learned quite a bit. Would recommend.

I wanted to reach out and thank you for such a great class last week; it was truly very beneficial.
- Matt - 2/23/21 Account Manager
Heather’s class was excellent. I wish I took this class when I first started with my company. 10 out of 10 all around.
- Kim - 1/27/22 US Supplier
This course was more than helpful. I plan of taking the OTIF and SQEP courses as well.
- Bailee - 10/7/21 Logistics Lead/ Finance Group
Heather’s class sparked some ideas we can pursue to mitigate some deductions!
- Ran - 9/8/21 US Supplier
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.
- Geraldine - 9/3/20 Deductions Analyst
It was a good class.
- Anner - 8/5/21 Replenishment Manager
Heather Reid was just awesome! We only had three people in the class which was great because my co-worker and I had a lot of questions. She was very patient and thorough. We will definitely be taking additional classes with 8th & Walton!
- Susan - 5/4/21 Compliance Manager
Heather was great. I’m sure what I learned will pay for the class many times over.
- Alfred - 5/4/21 IT/Operations
It was a long day but I think necessary. Heather is a very good instructor. I am a demanding student. Heather met all my expectations. The class was very well organized, the material was what I needed and the instructor was great. Highly recommended.
- Tom - 4/13/21 CFO
I really learned a lot today and am excited to start making better use of the tools that I already have.
- Maru - 4/13/21 Staff Accountant
Learned very helpful info that will help in deduction disputes and receiving more timely payment.
