As a shopper, I am very pleased with Wal Mart, although I do not generally buy much food there.

You don't need a degree if you're starting at the bottom and working your way up. Some of the best managers I had working retail were those that did not have degrees. The managers with degrees don't want to do anything but sit in the office or walk around.
Exactly.....retail has not changed that much in the 30 years since I was in management....

They’re a rich company, yet they under-pay their employees.

Kmart, Sears, and Sears Holdings are in worse shape than Walmart.

Sears Holdings is due to announce another round of stores closing. More jobs will be eliminated.
