    Out of work for a long time now, Did a drug test and background check I just got a job working for Walmart selling guns in sporting goods, My favorite place to go when I go there. What can I say....I might like it? 6 miles from the house and the department pays from what I heard the most of all deparment Guns Camping Fishing boating is my passion.

    NEVER thought I would work for Walmart, about now it sounds fun it's a job

    Glad you found a job. Do me a favor when you start, slap those other bozo's around and tell them to be at the counter once in a while. :)

    Don't knock it.

    It's good, honest, productive work.

    There's been times I would have jumped at the chance to get a job like that.

    Congratulations.

    I would say 'don't work too hard', but that's not sage advice going into a new job. Congrats!!

    I wonder why Okie doesn't work in Sporting Goods at his Walmart. He would be great selling guns (as long as they were Springfield 45 ACP).

    Slap them each once for me too. I'm sick of walking half way round the god damm store looking for a key master to the ammo glass!

    Working too hard at Walmart will make you very unpopular among the rest of the staff.

    But they'll put it aside when they report to you.

    A smart guy willing to work hard and perhaps further his education along the way can really create a nice career at wm

    This is true. I know a man that started out as a cart pusher and worked his way up to store manager.

    I know it is true, but still find it hard to believe one needs to pass a drug test to work at Walmart. Around here you have to pass a drug test to work at McDonald's, Burher King and Wendy's, too. Managers there have all told me that is why they have such a tough time finding help. So few people pass the drug test.

    It's not like these places are NASA or a hospital. I have a real tough time accepting that smoking a joint Friday night should disqualify someone from flipping burgers or selling shoes on Monday.
