Welcome to Wal-Mart


I guess it's time I post this...Keith has a new job! He was slightly, ok more than, done with the credit union and it wasn't looking like there was anywhere else he could advance there in the near future. This is a completely different venture for him, but I think he is really excited about it. He is now an assistant manager for the Quarry Bend Wal-Mart in Sandy. He has 8 weeks of training which is mostly located in West Valley (thankfully he is not working out there). We had a couple good surprises with his pay getting increased from what we were originally told and that's always nice. Almost 2 weeks of training down and I haven't heard him complain once! The only problem Keith has had is his question of, "Do you think people will think it's ghetto if I say I work at Wal-Mart?" I had to laugh and reassured him that as much as people make fun of Wal-Mart, you all shop there. Don't tell me you don't. Keith is planning to work hard and advance and there is plenty of room for him to do that here. I'm so proud and happy for him. Best part for me? I am finally going to start getting a discount on all those dang Pez dispenser :)

No shame in working for Wal-Mart. They are a good company, they have tons of stores and lots of advancement possibilities. Too bad he isn't working at the one here by us! Hope it turns out to be a great move for you guys!
