I need to chime in on the notion that retail employees are unhireable and it’s the only job they can possibly have.
Yes, I’m a retail worker. Part time. Have been for some time now. Do I like the job? Most of the time. Do I hate the job at times? Yes. However, I really do believe that every person in America should be forced to work at least one holiday season with the public screaming in their faces.
I’m not paid minimum wage nor am I forced to work where I work. I’m not treated poorly because I’m a woman. I am treated with respect by my coworkers because I treat them with respect. I really don’t have a beef with management. Some are good, some aren’t. If I showed any interest in moving up, I’d be given the chance. I’m happy doing what I do. Customers are another issue. There *are* people who just like to put down anyone, whether it be a retail employee or anyone else. It’s just par for the ocurse. I smile, tell them to have a nice day, sometimes say Merry Christmas and simply move on.
I know people who work at Walmart (I don’t work there). I really never hear any complaints,other than the usual complaints we have about the public, usually rude people.
The next time you’re shopping anywhere, remember.........that person you’re hoping loses his or her job because they’re not doting on you, well, it might be me.
By the way, I think probably 99% of my coworkers voted Romney.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I am not lumping in all retail employees with the Walmart employees. I am just saying that Walmart tends to give people a chance for employment, where other retailers, especially union retailers, would not. Walmart hires older workers, mildly handicapped employees and people on probation, that no one else would even interview for a job. Maybe that isn’t the case in all Walmart stores, but that is the way it is where I live.
and the Walmart employees are grateful for the opportunity to work, not unhappy with their employment at all. I know because i went to Walmart and asked several of the employees how they felt about working for Walmart.
America keeps on going regardless of craphead union thugs,Wefare cheats, a overreaching federal government,militant homos,radical libtards,media meatheads and of course...barack obama..
It was nice while it lasted..America that is.
the black friday sales were great because people were desparate to get them. Regular holiday sales will be in the tank.
From the testimony of some people I know, the crowds disappeared mighty quickly after the initial doorbuster rush, and now there is plenty of parking and aisle space in our local south Florida stores.
Obamanomics is a DISASTER.
One of the lazy *sses that lied about making $12,000 a year working part time at Walmart and couldn’t feed his family...
