Working for a Livin....Labor Day fun



Just thought I'd post a fun video of Huey Lewis and the News from back in the 1980s...have a great day! its sprinkling here today but hope it clears off as we want to barbecue....

back at the time, I was working full time for Walmart..they were experimenting with a discount clothing store like Ross..actually we were right next door to Ross in Oceanside....great company to work for actually, it was called Designer Depot...good pay and benefits...I was a department supervisor and was being trained to be a manager...we had fashion shows, and company dinners in the back room...fun work.....unfortunately, Walmart decided to close it as on a national level it wasn't making a big enough profit which is always the bottom line, but it was the best job I ever had...we actually had better buys and nicer clothes than Ross...a great shoe department and the jewelry department was very good....when it was announced they were closing...all the employees cried as we loved it so.....I wonder if there are any companies now that their employees would feel the same for the same reason....hope so.....
