most of hunter oaks is fine - its a really nice area - its just the part that backs up to the big open lot at Rea & Tom Short you would need to be concerned about and that is only a small part of that subdivision

well, for example, amersham would be a really poor choice as it backs right up to that open field

does that help any?

don't get discouraged - you will be fine! just know that around here it is not best anywhere really to back up to an open field or large area of undeveloped land becasue you just never know what is going to come in and become your neighbor

I hate wal-mart as well. I worked for them as a teenager (which really wasnt that long ago) and the culture of the company stinks and morale stinks even worse because of it.
But really, what is wal-mart doing thats so horrible thats really much different than what K-mart did and what Target does? Do you think Target sells more stuff made in america than wal-mart? Doubt it. Do Target employees have better benefits/healthcare than wal-mart employees? No, because Target manages to fill most of its hourly positions with part-time workers who aren't even eligible for benefits. And the pay.... I TURNED down a position at a Target job fair while working at wal-mart because I would have taken a drastic paycut.
I shop at wal-mart some, but also frequent my neighborhood Food Lion. I really doubt the bagboys there are paying a mortgage on their hourly rate, or have top-notch medical care either........ so whats the difference if wal-marts employees don't?
My biggest complaint I feel justified in having about wal-mart is not that they mistreat employees but rather cheat the CUSTOMER and the vendors that keep wal-marts money flowing. The culture of the company stinks. Its about quantity, not quality. They will literally hire worthless trash for employees and expect very little from them, rather than expect quality workers and pay them accordingly. They fail to train employees in customer service which is why I really expect little when I go there and if its something I need help in purchasing I will go somewhere else. The very vendors who spend the majority of their resources servicing wal-mart take a big hit for the privelege of doing business with them. The influence of wal-mart is quite scary in that respect.

With all the dissatisfaction that is posted here, what is the answer? Wal-Mart thrives. They thrive because of the customers. They continually have employees to hire. They are a powerhouse. And yet, they are criticized for succeeding.

Sure, based on all the media commentary I've heard about how employees are treated, I think they suck (and I agree, the culture sounds terrible [on the opposite spectrum -- take a look at Costco who offer decent bulk pricing, great selection and the employees are treated pretty well). However, it really boils down to a couple of the things I mentioned above. Unless potential employees stop applying for jobs there; unless current employees stop taking the shaft; and unless customers stop buying, they will continue to thrive. All of the aforementioned must also take responsibility for their own actions, too.

I buy from Wal-Mart and will continue to do so for the reasons I've stated before. Selection and price. I really don't need the service, although it's nice when I'm greeted by a friendly clerk (since this is what I would do regardless of my dissatisfaction with my employers). But those who don't like them, well, stop buying from, applying to, and working for Wal-Mart. Even part-time.
