Undercover at Wal-Mart

I’m not really a Wal-Mart fan. But, I have to admit this is more of an aesthetic thing. There’s a fair amount of disdain for Wal-Mart in certain circles, but the fact is that it is a very convenient place, price and selection, for folks who have tight finances.

It’s also a pretty big employer, and while there’s a reputation that it doesn’t treat employees right, there’s a fair amount of mixed reality involved.

Have no idea why I had this in my bookmarks, but apparently I found it interesting at some point a while back, and so I’m passing it on. It’s an article about what it’s like to work at Wal-Mart:

Considering this is a company that is helping families ride out the economic downturn, which is providing jobs and stimulus while Congress bickers, which had sales growth of 2% this last quarter while other companies struggled, you have to wonder why. At least, I wondered why. And in that spirit of curiosity, I applied for an entry-level position at my local Wal-Mart.
