After reading this thread, I had to comment.
My husband has worked for walmart for about 9 years. It is not a glorious place to work, its not the most employee friendly, its stressful, hard
labour (in his department) and with very little at all benefits, meaning a simple "hey, you did a great job", even...
My husband is not stupid, uneducated or on welfare...He is working full time, making a steady wage, even if not ideal wage, and carries health
insurance for the family.
He holds the old ways dear, as father and husband, he works hard for the family, does all he can to support and provide and would dig ditches if
that's what it took...being where he is, is not far off, but I am proud of him for doing what he does! He takes pride in the work he does and
customers know it as do his co workers who are lazy...
He does wish things were better at walmart all the way around and that they would hire people who gave a damn about work ethic...would carry American
MADE products...not American assembled with foreign parts...would support their employees who break their backs instead of use them and toss them
aside once broken...
if walmart wanted, they could make a change and we all would support them and the products...but they need to stop building a walmart grocery across
from every other local grocery store to try and steal patrons and supply their regular stores with some better items, some more variety of items and
workers with pride.
I could rattle off horror stories about employees, but that's not what im here to do...walmart is NOT the best of employers, but it keeps our
family's head above water to survive and have a meal on the table.
Anyone who works there shouldn't be ashamed to say so...but realistically many are...
