Where to began, my five months at Walmart, which we have in my hometown, which has driven out, or has reduced businesses staying power in my hometown. Like all Walmarts seem to do when they move into a small town, like mine. Course now, they are trying to make it into a supercenter, which is really dumb, as the population is well, about 11,000. At first, i liked it, i liked most of the people i worked with, even made friends. The managers seemed alright, except one or two, and at 8.20 an hour, it was a paycheck. Then after a while, i noticed that more then a few of the managers were real jerks, they wanted only for their workers to produce, didn't care if you were sick, or having a real bad day. Always too few people to cover all departments, and weren't in a real hurry to hire more people. I saw how stressed the other workers were, and how if you wanted to get anywhere you had to kiss major ass. Oh yeah, and some of the shit management and corporate pulled and have pulled, would not fly if Walmart was in a Union. They like the iron grip control they have on their workers, who really don't have any right to say anything. Yeah sure they have this open door policy, but comeon, you're just talking to some one higher up the foodchain, in the Corporation.

That's why i never turned to anyone in management if i had a personal issue, i spoke to one of my friends, i could'nt trust those management types, they were just too into the corporate scene. Lackeys of a corporation that pay shitty wages, and have fascist rules to impose upon their workers. And treat the workers like they were dirt, and pushed me into becoming one of them, at first i liked the idea, but in time it got to be way too much, i was stressed out, here i was with very little training, after five months, and at times i was to held accountable for overlooking six departments at times, and all too frequently, having to do the job of at least six or seven people to organize the areas to look nice for the customers next day. Which was totally stupid, we closers should have just been allowed to place product on the shelves, and help customers, and let overnighters organize the shelves and clean up the store. But the managers, including the tight ass Gen. Manager, didn't think it was efficient that way, so we had to suffer under someone with a God complex, as far as i am concerned.

I'll tell you this folks, for as long as i live, i will do all i can not to go back to that nightmare, cause all Walmart is, is a wage-slave prison, and i feel bad for anyone who has to work as a regular employee there.
