DebMarie,
welcome to our group. I am a department manager in furniture in Colorado. I've been with the company for 12 years and like it most of the time.

Take care,

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

Hi Sue,
of course you are welcome here. You are one of us. A lot of members may not be familiar with Asda and it might be interesting to them too when you talk some shop.

Another group I belong to used to have Asda members show up but then the whole group kind of fizzled down.

How come you are having a management shake up? When you talk about Department Managers, are you talking about salaried managers? Our departments are much larger than yours and the department manager is actually an hourly associate who is in charge of that particular department and sometimes some sales associates (if they have any) and an assistant manager is over several department managers. We don't sell lottery tickets at Walmart in the States. The department manager over cigarettes also has the candy department. The stocking and selling is done by the cashiers assigned to the cigarette registers. Those cashiers also have to ring up regular merchandise.

Congratulations on your weight loss so far. You've done great.

Best wishes,

I only joined this team yesterday. I was looking through the teams available and looked up Wal-Mart.
I live in England and work in Asda which is the English arm of Wal-Mart.
I have worked there for four years and i mostly love my job. I work on the cigarette and lottery kiosk. I do 37&1/2 hours a week, i am the only full timer on my department. I work five day's a week, Tuesday through to Saturday 07.00 - 15.00
We are having a management shake-up in March and it's rumoured my dept. manager might be going which would be good for me as she does not know a thing about my dept and just tells me to deal with it. Some support would be nice. The last time we had a shake-up the store manager got sacked, 3 managers were demoted and 4 went to other stores. Who knows what will happen this time.
I hope it's ok for me to join you guy's and you don't mind a true outsider.
Forgot to say my name is Sue, i am married to Gary and have a teenage daughter Freya. I have always struggled with my weight but after joining spark last year i have been doing better.
Look forward to getting to know my Wal-Mart colleagues.
Sue.
