Wal-Mart: A Snap Inspection

What's happening at the Evil Empire of retail? According to this Business Week article, not customer service. And looking at the demographics of the stores they visited, where the "poorest" average income was $68,000, I have to wonder what it would have looked like if the would have visited stores in truly downscale areas.

Rumor has it Wal-Mart is trying to actually hire on sales people... but given the attitudes of the employees seen in the article it doesn't look like it. But that's what happens when you need to pay low wages to stave off the margin impact of low prices.

Wal-Mart... driving American jobs out of business or the country so that you can only afford to shop there. That should be their new slogan.

I hate Walmart. Walking in one, only makes me want to walk out... NOW.

I have never worked in retail... But it feels soulless. And I want no part of it.
