I worked at herb Philipson's and the general manager at the new Hartford store is horrible and very unprofessional. I worked there for five years and had enough and quit! They don't pay enough either I'd go to Walmart if I were you!

A supervisor in walmart north utica screamed at a employee last week right in front of customers. Not professional. She told him that she was mad because her manager yelled at her.

Take the job at Herb's and then enroll in college because neither one of these jobs pays a living wage.

Walmart has more managerial positions and therefore more room for advancement with better pay, benefits, overtime, etc. There is a produce manager, frozen foods manager, front-end manager, general merchandise manager, store manager, assistant store manager, receiving manager, customer service manager...etc. As far as I know, Herb Phillipson's doesn't have this many managerial positions as they don't have all the different departments that Walmart has. Besides, Walmart is a huge company with tons of money unlike Herb Phillipson's which is closer to a mom-n-pop chain. Walmart seems like the better option.

Take either one. Use it to pay for college classes and find out what you love. Do it better than anyone, and the money will come, but more importantly you'll be happy. Just an old guy here.

Old lady agrees. Time passes quickly. Get a catalog, or go online and write down all the courses that sound interesting to you. Before you know it, you'll have an idea of what you like. Take one course, and you will have begun. I have had dozens of jobs, but didn't love one until I was forty. More important to be happy, took a few years, but the money did come. And I love going to work everyday. That's not to say you won't like one of your two choices. If you do, there's always opportunity. You just have to look for it. I know several people that make a decent living in retail, but you have to take classes, training, do extra work to move up. Good luck. Keep a positive attitude, be punctual, and always say please and thank you with a smile. You will always be judged on your manners more than anything else.

Herb Philipson's. At least you would get some discounts on guns and ammunition. What will you be buying at Wal-Mart? Diapers and baby formula?
