Working at Wal-mart

Hello everyone, I have been a wal-mart employee for 8 1/2 years and have worked my way into management. I have seen alot of good changes and alot of bad in that amount of time, and I like to think that I have alot of knowledge when it comes to how the store are supposed to run. For the most part I really enjoy my job and care alot for my associates and enjoy the customers that come in the store. I do have the occasional customer that gets under my skin, but everyone does. What I want to know is how many others work for wal-mart and what are your experiences like? Or if your a customer I want to hear about the good and the bad experiences.

Hello awaha. There is no Wal-mart in my small town, but I have been to one that is located in another big city in my province, Zhejiang. It is in the suburb of Ninbo City. It is a huge Wal-mart, located somewhere out of the city, in a small town. I enjoyed myself there and found that most of the things there are cheap. I have also been to another Wal-mart in Jinhua City, right in the city instead of in the suburb of this city. How I wish to have one in the town where I live and work. I am glad that you enjoy your work there, as can be seen from your description. Enjoy yourself, dear friend.

I always found that all those women and men that works at Walmart very patient, and don't mind to be there to serve the public. I would not have the capacity to do that. But I always been plainly satisfy of the help in the store. Thanks to everyone that take the time and the effort to work at Walmart.God bless.

I'm a customer but know a few workers at Wal-Marts One on-line friend of mine used to work the self scan check-out aisle. As I have been working in the food industry, fast-food, pizza, and so on, I know what it's like dealing with customers. There are always those who look at places like fast-food and Wal-Mart and see the workers there as lesser then them. They would never work at a Wal-Mart. But they have no problem with going there to shop. For the most part, every associate at Wal-Mart was helpful and given the chance would give you a smile and some good advice. I understand it's not like a high end clothes store, or an auto parts store, where you have experts and people who have made that their career. Most work to support a family. As long as they get the respect they deserve as a human being, they give the respect in return. I like Wal-Mart, and like that I can get the great Wal-Mart prices on everything I use around the house. I like the Wal-Mart people and respect them for the job they are doing.
