I managed a fast food place in the town I used to live. I worked from 7am - midnight 7 days a week. It just worked out better that way. When you have
a work ethic and are willing to put forth effort you can do well in the world. I am willing to put in hours like this and work my butt off while on
the clock at any job I work.And I will enjoy every minute of it or I won't work there. Good days and bad days but when they are all bad I refuse to
stress and take my time away from my kids for that kind of environment.
But in places like Wal-Mart you just can't get anywhere unless you know people or don't care. There are a few good employees but they don't last long
because they will be run into the ground. No, no one gets overtime hours... at least not paid for them anyways. Though I am sure that many employees
are putting in the hours to be able to keep the job. Yes that is illegal and is not really happening right?... right? >.>
I have a friend that manages a Wal-Mart up north and I asked him about what he is allowed to pay his employees. The managers over the small certain
areas (jewelry, shoes, etc.) make LESS than starting wage at a big gas station around here. (Buc-ees) That is sad. These are managers AND hourly
employees working for crap pay to put food on the table. Great! Maybe these hourly employees get a discount so they can buy the low, low price goods
from china direct. Oh crap I meant Wal-Mart! Silly me...
Bring the jobs home and lets take care of our local communities. Wal-Mart can burn to the extent that they screwed over all the little mom and pops
all over the US.
