I worked for Wal-Mart for a total of four years. For the last two of those years I was one of the best "associates" they will ever have. I was especially nice and very helpful to hundreds of customers, often resulting in sales that W-M wouldn't have had if I hadn't been there. Never - not once - was I ever recognized for my customer service (except by the customers).
I'd only worked for Walgreen's for a mere three weeks when I was surprised with an "Outstanding Customer Service" award.
I know that Walgreen's is where I'm meant to be. This award is only one reason. Other things have happened to make me feel like I'm supposed to be there. Of course, the biggest thing is that I actually enjoy working for Walgreen's. In only 38 days of employment I already feel more appreciated than I ever did at Wal-Mart.
So, to Wal-Mart I award a big pppppppppppppptttttttttttttttttttttttt!
