Bloggers Who Work for Wal-Mart

It's come to my attention that hundreds of unknown bloggers and web journal users work at Wal-Mart. Most have little to do with WM, and many are rather vulgar, so don't read on if you're easily offended.

Almost every post by Ryan at News of Aberdeen speaks wisdom about the Wal-Mart debate.

Nikki lives in Ontario, Canada. So does Sarah Specht - "wal-mart isn't coming through for me. i have 2 there next week *sighs* wed and fri night. i wonder what the week after has in store for me....."

A spark in the dark - "I'm Nick, 20 years old, St louis Missouri area. I work at wal-mart because I suck and dropped out of college, trying to make ends meet on my own on a meager salary."

Quixtar Criminals is a construction manager for Wal-Mart.

Anonymous works at WM, and has a good friend working for Target.

i3ai3ygurl1101 is a WM cashier in Florida; she's looking to be a customer service manager soon.

Let Sara describe herself - "I'm 19 and I go to school currently at UW-Eau Claire. I am an Environmental/public Health major with the intent to do hazardous waste management or something to that extent....we will see how long that lasts cuz yea, I majorly suck at science right now....I work at Wal*Mart back home in The Grove. Don't hate on the mart or else i will have to come and beat you up!"

John Hicks is a cashier at Wal-Mart.

Big Crazy has been at Wal-Mart for six years, and has good advice for new assistant managers - "So, the guy says,�I need to have your school schedule on file,� and I say fine. Then he wants to know what I�m doing on my days off. It�s none of your fucking business what I�m doing on MY day off!! It�s MY DAY OFF!!! If I want to hang-glide naked over the Illinois River, then I should be able to do it as long as I don�t have a Wal-Mart vest on when I�m on my day off�.plain and simple. That�s why there are Availablity Sheets, and on them you put what days, times, hours, etc., that you are AVAILABLE! All other time is yours and none of Wal-Mart�s goddamn business."

Chris Dempsey works a lot at Wal-Mart.

Melissa Meloche writes frequently about work at WM as an Inventory Control Specialist

Erica Lynn works in a Wal-Mart portrait studio..

Gimme a break writes candidly about working 30 hours a week for Wal-Mart. Read this entry on the attitude that one customer gave...

Heather is paid $8.15 an hour at Wal-Mart. Kohls offered $6.50.
