The bass tournament we have every year has been has been named after Denise. Every fund raiser we have at Wasl-Mart for childrens miracle network is dedicated to Denise Bowman. We had a horse show at Marmaduke recently that raised $6500 in Denise's name. Denise was a great person and her name will always be in our hearts evertime we have a fund raiser.

Walmart does great things! They really do and they help out the community and donate alot, i just wish that they had more customer service oriented cashiers....

I work at Wal*Mart and I agree with you. Every cashier and floor associate are not friendly. On the other hand all the customers we deal with are not friendly but I just take the bad with the good. When I have a great customer to wait on it makes up for all the bad ones. Just makes my day. That is what I try to focus on because if I didn't I would be in a bad mood all the time. Hope everyone has a great day because I am!!!

Her friends have dedicated these events...what has Wal-Mart #36 done in her memory? Nothing.

The best thing about Wal-Mart was Denise Bowman. Now that she's passed away, Wal-Mart sucks! I think it's terrible they don't have some sort of memorial set up in her name. She did a tremendous amount of fundraising for Arkansas Children's Hospital-all of which Wal-Mart #36 takes credit for.
The year that she died wal-mart donated all the money a more that they raised that year In her name. They also have pictures of all the people that have died while they were still employed at wal-mart! So if you are going to say things about that you know nothing about you leave Denise out of it. I knew all three people that have died while employed atWal-mart the past 4 years. If you don't belive me about the money in memory of Denise go ask, John McDowell or Terry Melton. I know that they had a plack with her name and all the money that they gave!

Why are you so damn touchy? I said nothing negative about Denise. Who are you anyway?

All you need to know is that you need to know your stuff before you speak. I was not the only one that said that you were wrong.

I like Wal-Mart and all of the people that shop there, every one seem to be friendly to me. But, I enjoy smiling at them. If you need help to find something, someone will go out of there way to help. The cashier ask if I found everything ok. Most of them call me by name if I have my name pinned on.

I know what I'm talking about. Children's Miracle Network and Wal-Mart are 2 totally different entitites. My question was, what has Wal-Mart done?

They don't have enough checkers because they don't pay them well enough to make a living. I had my share of being a checker along time ago. They have strict rules on not when you take breaks and lunches and not one second of overtime. The general public gets frustrated when a cashier closes their line and goes to break or on lunch, but believe me that is strictly set by Wal-Mart. Many a good people have been fired for working past their breaks. IT would be a wake-up call if everyone shopped somewhere else for a little while but that will never happen. Sam was a good man and he definitely would not like how things are handled in the Wal-Marts today.
It's Wal*Mart. There is no prior experience necessary. You can't expect to walk into a job like that and make a fortune. Trust me, I could walk in there and get a job making more than I do at the job I've been at for 4 years. If you want to make a better living, get a different job. There is not a thing wrong with the way Wal*Mart is "handled" today, there are just too many people that wish to gripe about something. And the great majority of these people who gripe about how terrible Wal*Mart is are the ones who are in there shopping all the time...hipocritical?

Is it just me or are the people who always say people are so rude are usually the rudest people you know?

Only problem I have is the kid that runs around every time we are in Wal-Mart, seems like no matter when we go, who makes crazy noises and whatnot. Now, I know he's autistic but a few weeks ago he pulled his pants down in front of my wife. To me, that's a bit much.

The store is run how the manager wants it run. I worked for them for a long time (not at Paragould) and I know this for a fact. The manager at Paragould is rude and not a good manager, he doesn't care about the customers. If he wants to hire more cashiers, he can, he just won't. And OMG, they need to teach their cashiers how to bag!!! I don't go there unless I absolutely have to.
ok first of all I work for wal=mart in paragould and i'm not really fond of the manager but it is not always up to him whtn people get hired. He does quiet often get orders from the home office telling him payroll is to high and he can not hire any more until the hiring freeze is lifted. Granted i agree we need more people but remember that everyone has a boss no matter how high up the latter they climb.

They have been out of a lot of stuff lately. It's either that or you can't gt down the aisles because they have so much stuff in the middle of the middle of the floor. They need to stock at night like the rest of the Walamrts do!!
