I know I have only done a couple of FTF's but just wanted to say good-bye to everyone I have met in Ohio.

I am moving to Glendale, Arizona in 9 days to take a job and hopefully start a career.

I've been working at Wal-Mart for the past 5 1/2 years. I graduated this semester with my BBA in MLR(management labor relations) and now all the sudden they want to make me a manager.

They are going to start me off at $40K and are taking care of all my moving expenses(truck rental/shipping my car---all free) and gave me $3K to do as I please with and 16 days off with pay.

I know a lot of people hate Wal-Mart but they take care of the managers. For a kid fresh out of College at the age of 22 I cannot complain that they are going to move my Fiance and me to a place where there is 300+ days of sunshine and the average temperature in the winter is 60 degree

I am not a fan of retail but it is easy. I am planning on building up a superb resume in hopes of snagging a better job(career) since Arizona is such a vastly growing state.

Take care and enjoy the snow fellas!

Good luck on your move. Naturally I can't speak for everybody here but I love Walmart, just wish they sold handguns.

i worked at walmart for a few months in 2003 in Missouri

despite what GD and the libs want us to believe, it is a good company that takes care of its employees

good luck, let us know when you get there and catch some rays for me

Good luck!

I grew up in Arizona, and know Glendale well. You'll love it out there. The politics are gun-friendly, lots of shooters, and you'll never drive in snow or shiver your ass off again.

Hope everything works out well for you!

Thanks for all the kind words guys. If you want I can still stop in on this board and upload some pictures.

Our store manager makes about $125K with the store bonus. I hope to be up there in about 5-7 years. MY goal is to be a store manager before I am 30.
