Walmart, As It Was

As it was, Walmart was a wonderful part of my life. For a short while I sincerely believed what I was told and even if I had my doubts I pushed them aside because the company that I grew to love seemed to be something I had never come across in almost twenty five years of retail.

Now with a book about it written and the possibility that it may be too controversial for anyone to print, I may have to do it myself.

It has to be written. It has to be published. It is a promise that I made to myself and so many wonderful Walmart Associates that I worked with over the years.

Seriously, I thought if I could talk to one of the Waltons I might be able to save the company. I know that telling them could destroy the story I have written but I wanted to save a company that I loved.

Today a regional personnel manager I knew when I worked in my last store called to tell me that she was calling me for as she said, Rob.

For more than four years I attempted to contact one of the Waltons. Email, letters, nothing returned and nothing answered this call is as close as it has come.

I do not know if she has even ever met or talked to him. I do know that he is nothing like his father from what I have been told about Sam.

The truth hurts. Even two months after running away from the interrogations that made me so uncomfortable that I felt like a criminal and made me think I might need an attorney I still can look back and say that I loved the old Walmart.

Such a shame that a culture that made people want to be there and want to excel has turned into what it is.

Today only proved to me that there is no true concern about the company as far as billionaire Rob Walton is concerned and that is enough for me to give up trying to explain what has happened.

I am not sure if anyone has the nerve to take them on now. If no one will publish the book I will. I am not sure how I will get the funds and am not sure how I will promote it but I will work night and day until I find a way to do it.

I have started a web site and am sure if someone puts my name or the book’s title into a search engine they can find me.

The companies the unions the corporations that are too big to notice this will one day know that it was a text book explanation that would not be hard to understand.

The simplest things are overlooked by those who think they know it all. There was a time when I probably would have worked at Walmart for nothing. I would do anything to find a company that had the culture, that lived the culture that Sam Walton founded Walmart on.
