I worked at Walmart – the real reason the security barriers beep & it’s NOT because people are stealing | The Sun

DON'T be alarmed if you hear a loud beeping whenever you exit Walmart.

One ex-employee said when the security barriers at the entrance and exit beep, it's almost never because of theft.

On TikTok, the former Walmart worker's video got plenty of attention from customers and other ex-employees.

Known by the handle ImNotHae, the TikTok star revealed his employee secrets to his 1.3million followers.

"I used to work at Walmart," ImNotHae reassured his audience at the start. "I know exactly what I'm talking about."

Sharing a photo of the security barriers that stores have near the exits, the poster said he had a secret about the "little security blockers."

"Bro, trust me…they do not work," he said. "We might as well have them up for decoration."

The TikTok star didn't explain why the barriers are so often "broken," but insisted that the alarms go off for no apparent reason.

"Every time you walk through them and they make that 'beep beep beep' noise, that isn't because you're stealing," he said. "That's because they're broken."

In the comments, other shoppers said their experiences with the store were similar.

"Once I walked past it and it beeped," a viewer remembered. "The [employee] just kicked it and it stopped."

"I walked through it," another viewer said. "I don't care."

Another person argued that if the barriers beep, you're trying to go through the wrong door – the entrance instead of the exit.

"It just beeps if you walk out that way," they argued. "You are only supposed to walk in, not out."

Depending on the sensors used at the guard barriers, a number of things could set off the alarms – so, rather than being "broken," they're likely oversensitive.
