Yesterday I went to walmart and while waiting for someone to get there also (popular meeting up spot) I applied to walmart. I have had an interview with walmart before, and I am hoping that I can get another interview and this time get hired. I belive it is a two interview process and I'd really really really like to find a job soon. Sure I know what people say about walmart, and I've known people who've worked there and not really enjoyed it, but I could use the job and a job is a job, and as long as I can find some way to earn a little bit, I'd be very happy. That's why you see me back here on mylot, I need to find a way to earn a little bit so that I can better myself. Anyone else stuck in a hole like me lately?

I will not bad mouth Wal Mart, they have provided a starting place for a lot of people, I have worked for Wal Mart as well. So has my son, so has my husband. It is a legal employer, and it pays more than being at home online, so I am hoping the best for you. You may have to apply a time or two to get hired. You are right, it takes money to make a life as well as a living.

Well it is a good starting place. A lot of people I know have worked for walmart before. I am really really hoping that they will call. It's within walking distance of me and I've figured out that after the first month of working there I should have enough to pay for a cheap dirtbike or moped. I am hoping for night shift actually but I applied for every shift there was to apply too, even cart pusher though doubt they'd hire me as that. Thank You, I really hope I do get hired, I'll be reapplying to them every 60 days.

Did you ever get that job at Walmart? Did you get a better job?

I guess you could say I'm stuck in a hole. I've applied and reapplied to Wal-Mart countless times before. Finally, I was hired by one of their stores. However, my current job was losing it's only other steady employee at the time, so I got offered more hours there. I would have loved to have kept both jobs, but in the end I had no choice but to choose. As Wal-Mart only hired me for seasonal work, paid less hourly, and was further away I ended up quitting there and on my very first day too. Now with my current job, I'm getting less and less hours, or so it seems, even with one of the employees getting ready to go back to her home country. So I'm back to reapplying to places all over again. After all, I need something more steady than what my boss is willing to offer me. Happy mylotting!

I know what you mean by 'a job is a job'. I've worked in some places before where I never thought I'd be in. But the circumstances back then required me to swallow whatever pride I had, so I could in-turn swallow some real food. I hope you got it!

If you really need the money, then I guess you have to take what you can get, even if it's at Walmart (not that there is anything wrong with that, I guess it's just not really a "fun" job ;)). I really hope you get the job so you can "climb out of the hole". I'm sure you will get hired!

Good luck on getting the job! Things to keep in mind is that it is, usually, a minimum wage job and most of those jobs are really tough. Plus, you often don't get any respect from your supervisors or patrons of the store. So, it can be an unpleasant job just in that respect. But, from what I've heard from people at Wal Mart, the working situation isn't really that much different than any other minimum wage job you would get at any other store, so Wal Mart wouldn't be any worse than other places, either.

I wish you the best of luck with the job interview. I work with alot of sites online daily and make pretty good with it monthly. It doesn't replace a real job income though buit it does pay some bills and buys us extras we want.

Yes, in this economic market a job is a job. From what I hear some Walmarts are awful to work for and I have seen things in that news that tell me woman don't have a chance in getting raises and promotions in these awful ones. But my BFF's daughter is working for a smaller Walmart and she is pretty impressed so far with how she has been treating. I hope that you find this to be true where you are.

Well, if they hire you then they'll be one step closer to being a better store. So hopefully they will have enough sense to do it. I have met some nice workers there when I have been shopping. I have also met a couple people who were so mean I would literally go to a longer line so I wouldn't have to have them as my cashiers. Like one lady one time, she rang all my groceries up, I gave her my credit card and she said, sorry the credit card machine is down. I asked why she hadn't told me that before she rang up my groceries. And I'm telling you, I'm nice. So I was being very nice about it although it annoyed me. She goes, It's not my fault you're too stupid to ask me yourself. That statement made so little sense, and I was so tired and frustrated that I didn't pursue it further. But I did have to leave all my groceries behind. On the other hand, there is a wonderful woman who works at Walmart who always asks about my parents. I used to take my mom grocery shopping to give my dad a break from taking care of her (she has dementia), so she has seen my mom with me and my dad. So we'd chat, she'd tell me about her twin teenager boys...just a lovely lady. I don't see her much anymore because she keeps getting promoted! Which I guess isn't a surprise since she is so likable and a hard worker.
