A Job at Walmart is As Smooth As a Dyson Fan

With the advent of the bladeless fan, I was reminded of how smooth a job at Walmart can be.Many people think that working at Walmart would be a hassle with managers in your face 24/7 but that is not the case at all. The training that one receives when working at this big box retailer is sufficient that you almost do not need management on the floor except to manage the flow as opposed to manage the employees.The cashiers are well equipped to handle the massive amount of customers that come through the lanes and the stocking crew works with nary a comment from the mid-level management.Back in the receiving department a truck backs in to have it’s freight unloaded and the process of unloading and warehousing the freight goes without a hitch. The truck driver even knows where to stand during the process based upon the safety training that is taught.Safety is a major part as to why things go so smoothly when you have a job at Walmart and the majority of the initial training is safety based. The management philosophy is that if you set up the business operation in such a way that the working conditions are safe, the employees will concentrate on customer service which is why the level of service is rated highly by those in the know.Now you know that a job at Walmart is not just a paycheck situation, it is a business that runs as smooth as glass.

Jobs in Walmart

Jobs in Walmart are available now, according to a company announcement early last month. After a dismal year in which job cuts were coming fast and furious from many of America’s largest and most stable companies, the announced 22,000 job openings by Walmart to add personnel to existing stores as well as the opening of additional Walmart locations came as a welcome relief to the American economy and to the country’s unemployed. It also gave job seekers a place to focus on for employment opportunities.   Walmart is the second largest company in the United States, according to the most recent Forbes 500 list of America’s largest corporations.Company revenues were in excess of $400 billion. In the U.S. alone the company employs more than 1.4 million individuals at 2,447 Supercenters, 971 discount stores, 591 Sam’s Clubs, and 132 Neighborhood Markets. Many job seekers will find a choice of store locations that don’t require relocating to work at.  There is a process a job seeker must go through to locate and apply for one of the available job openings. It starts with going on line to one of the many jobs available sites to find available positions and location, then filling out a detailed employment application, going in for a job interview with local management and then waiting out the internal review process before being notified of a hiring decision.   The time and effort involved with applying for one of the available jobs in Walmart can seem long but if you get the job it is worth all of the wait.

Many times we look at a job at Walmart and see the cashier that is working 20 hours a week to supplement the family income and put a few groceries on the table or we see the teen age stock clerk working part time for gas money while going to school.What we do not generally recognize is the person that has made a job at Walmart, a career at Walmart because we see so many part timers working there just making “extra” money.Believe it or not, the majority of folks that have positions with this huge Arkansas based company are in it for the long term and have their sites on a nice lengthy career as the opportunities available are massive.Store managers make very nice money and receive great training, a very nice retirement plan, health, life and dental with vacation pay to boot.
