The 6 heirs of Sam Walton are worth a combined total of 90 billion dollars). How many college graduates are going to be lining up to work for 8 ****ing dollars an hour, and part time at that (and yeah, it's policy now: if you aren't in management, you aren't full-time, and you get no benefits. PERIOD)? The infrastructure of the company doesn't allow for actually telling its depressed, starving employees what the hell is going on. It's a failure that starts at the top of the food chain, not with the poor SOB's stuck at the bottom just trying to survive. We as department managers had to get our promotional news from outside sources. There were no emails sent to us, no snail mail. No one knows what the hell is going on there until its right on top of them. Informing the stores would mean the fat cats up top would have to actually spend some of their precious money. I hate to agree with the hippies, but Walmart is pure ****ing evil. You should view those clueless employees with pity and sympathy.
Oh I do. I just about go out of my way and not bother the employees there because I know what they are going through. You don't really know how bad customers/people can be until you've worked in this type of environment.
