    I have applied at Walmart a few times. They always hire people that look skany and are rude, etc., But, I cannot get a call fromthem. I guess if you are neat, intelligent and have a personality, Walmart doesn’t want you. I also wrote them a letter about this, but, like the application….no reply so far. I gave up. I really don’t want to work for a company that the employees look and act like they do at the Walmarts around here. But, Walmart has America in its back pocket. It can pretty much get by with it…unless people quit patronizing them. I and several of my friends have doen exactly that. I actually obtained employment at a “normal” store, so, no worries….:)
