Do you work at Walmart, Syriiven? Don't mean to be nosy, but is it as bad as other people say?

If you mean the notebook stuff on the first page, go ahead. This is Syriiven's thread though, so if you need anything else, please PM me.
Well, first, our Walmart hasn't had a fish section in a long, long time (a lot of Canadian Walmarts dont have fishstock any more)- but when we did, they lucked out and had a girl working there who's first concern were the fish. I heard she'd flip out if she went away for a little while and came back to see that no one had done anything for the fish.
The thing that people have to understand about Walmart is that if it can hire someone qualified for their price, they would, but more often or not they have regular people needing to just pay bills who are thinking only about themselves.
I personally dont agree with lots of things Walmart does (like selling canned Tuna which I know doesnt come from a sustainable source because the world's bluefin tuna is going to be critically endangered in a year or two because the big ones are gone and now they're accepting juveniles in their catches) but Walmart is about money.
I'm the back room Supervisor, so I deal with boxes and labels more than anything. If we had a fish department, I'd chew off a limb to run it because I know I'd be good at it.
But yea, I've seen people's rants on here, which I can understand the concern for the fish...but they almost make me feel bad as a person for my association to Walmart. But because I have a job, I can afford to have my fish. And to have internet, so I can post my art. So two things I bring to this forum that I prlly couldn't at any other job here because I live in a small town that's definitely not hiring. Walmart is as petty as any other large corporation - but it does bring jobs to town.
It depends on your managers as people. The policies arent terrible, but the managers can be. In my store your best shot is to work hard and make yourself irreplaceable and reliable. That's what I do, and so I get away with actually voicing my opinion every now and again.
On the other hand, Walmart's not the type of place to just fire your ass as soon as you dont show up for work. We've had people on evening shift who ahvent showed up for half their shifts and still work there -_-; So...yea. Some of their policies are good...some are just dumb.
I would think that working for any large chain would be the same. Some people do make working for Walmart sound so much worse than anywhere else though.
The Walmart near me did not have any bettas for months. Then, I went back recently and saw a few VTs and CTs. They don't even bother placing the cups somewhere visible in that store. They have these tiny nondescript racks in the alcove over, I guess, the employee sink (the same sink where I've seen them leave out netfuls of dead fish) and that's where they keep the bettas. Alongside the cleaning supplies and the soap.
I can~ it's not something I'm good at yet. I've been using brushes and gradients, not a lot of my own stuff. For background work..have to check out some of my DA stuff. Bigger projects I generally add background though. My 'Demon Hunter Syriiven' pic on my DA page was fully drawn by me though, but its sadly my only digital sample of my own work.
