Walmart is a fantastic place to start or grow your career!
Worried you won't progress or earn more $$$?
Good news! They promote over 510 people every day, and 36% of promotions go to first-year associates!
66% of Store Managers began as hourly associates. Plus, if you complete their training program you’ll gain important skills and an opportunity to boost your paycheck.
I've been working with the same company for almost seven years, while my manager has only been with us for three. I am the most tenured person in the department, so since Day 1 I think he has thought of me as a threat to his job and has never put me in a position where I can look good to his boss (who would promote me). How can I show the higher-ups of the company that I'm worth promoting if my manager controls the flow of information between them and me?
So I have been a sprinkler fitter for 10 plus years and all of my jobs were at companies that just wanted me to do the same job, no advancement. I realized this was a dead end job. So I completely quit the trade and got a job as an HVAC pipe fitter. I have been doing this for a year. Last month I was contacted about a company that is starting a fire sprinkler division. I replied and went through an interview. A week later they scheduled me another interview. This past week I received an offer letter. So now I have accepted the job as the lead sprinkler tech. Within the next 2 years I'll be a manager. I was thinking last night. How did this come? By chance? Then I realized I have been reading self help books for the last year. My whole out look on life has changed drastically within the last year. The opportunities will come as long as you apply your self in the correct way. I am proof of it. This job I took is 4$/hr more than I'm currently making plus commission bonuses at the end of every month. Plus a fast track to advancing my career!! Who could ask for more?
I was new to the corporate world amd my zone mgr knew it so he rapidly promoted me through the ranks to location manager. Ie the guy responsible for everything. Little did i know it was to exploit my shop and steal about 10 k $ worth of parts and labor, get me fired and blamed fir it all. I do however have 900$ worth of receipts for pRts for his unique vehicle that were never inviiced.
My boss at my last job working for kimmen installation came over to my house drinking one day. We began to talk about business and future jobs for the business. I then asked for a raise and he blew up pushed me across the living room and threw my wife into the kitchen. U tried to talk to him and him down and he fired me on the spot. My boss ( Larry Kimmen) is a lowes contractor for east Texas. Only seems to care about how much money he makes off of his sub contractors (which I was).
I recently got a job that is really awesome and challenging but when I applied and during all 4 interviews I had the job description has changed dramatically from when I accepted to what I am actually doing. I was originally supposed to maintain 'some' servers and now it turns out I am maintaining over 900 servers with only one other experienced individual and they just hired another completely green person. Is it wrong of me for wanting to get paid accurately for the Network Operations position I am and not for the Sys Admin position I applied for? How would you go about this conversation?
I've been a chef for 13 years and over the last 5, I have realised that I'm being passed up for managment by kids because they work cheaper. Even with college and experience, I have been passed up numerous times and I am looking to start fresh but I refuse to spend another $50k on a education that got me nowhere but broke....any help?
