I work for Wal-Mart nearly ten years. The first year and a half I worked as a tech in automotive changing oil and tires. The rest as a Direct Store Delivery manager. Basically a grocery vendor receiver.
I retired just a few months shy of my tenth year anniversary. One of the few things I wished I had finished or at least accomplished. But then again, one small regret I can live with.
Wal-Mart’s a pretty crazy place to work at, especially during the holidays. There’s no taking off for vacation or going home early. You have to be there. No if, ands, or buts about it.
For nearly ten years I had to work every single holiday. Except Chrismas day which is the only day Wal-Mart is closed.
There was one holiday though that I dreaded the most of any other holiday. And that was Thanksgiving. Not because I hated thanksgiving, but because I had to work.
