Noise Reduction

The Wal-Mart Employee Journal is consistently more interesting and diverse than the blogs of Wal-Mart's opponents. For instance, in a recent post, we find out that Wal-Mart has discovered how LOUD their stores are compared to, say, Target, and are instructing employees to cut down on PA usage; some employees have been given walkie-talkies to be used instead. Many employees think this won't really help, since people either have to page to get specific things done, or abusers will find a way to circumvent the limitations.

Here's a freebie tip to Wal-Mart executives: shut off the hideous televisions and/or music! It's that simple, really. I know you really like Wal-Mart TV. So just try it in half of your 10 stores nearest, say, the center of Knoxville, and send in a team to both the quiet and loud stores to survey people, and another team to check out the financials.
