The locksmith, who has worked for Walmart for six years, was hired after a customer complained that her lock had been opened by a lockscreen.
The lock had not been removed, and she believed the customer had taken the lock out of the box and had stolen the contents.
“It’s something we are not doing,” said Alex Turner, the locksmith who was hired by the retailer.
“He’s been working here for six or seven years.
He’s very professional, very professional.
We’re happy to have him.”
Walmart’s CEO, Brian Cornell, said he was not aware of any complaints about the lockscreen being stolen or that it had been taken out of its box.
Cornell said the lockscreens were made to be easy to open.
“If someone comes into our store and wants to open a lock or a door, they can,” Cornell said.
“They can put their phone in and take a picture and they can open it, and they don’t have to touch anything.”
The lockscreen was part of a $20 million contract with Walmart in 2017 that included a $500,000 bonus for the locks technician.
In 2017, Walmart also offered to provide a “loyalty program” for locksmiths, and to make a $200,000 donation to the University of Arkansas’ Lockwood Lab, where researchers were studying how to use lasers to break down lock codes.
The University of Colorado in 2018 announced that it would pay a $1 million grant to the Lockwood lab.
“Lockwood’s goal is to help unlock a wide range of locks, from doors to doors, locks to locks,” Lockwood CEO Kevin McBride said in a statement.
“That’s what Lockwood’s about.
We want to make sure the locks in our store are secure.
We also want to support researchers who are pursuing ways to break these locks.”
He also said the company was committed to its employees and the communities they work in.
“We’re committed to keeping our employees safe and doing what’s right for our customers,” McBride wrote.
