WEGMANS VS WALMART

I have worked as a cashier at both walmart and wegmans they have two different philosophies on training people.Walmart has a long orientation teaching you the job with computer based learning.You have to complete a certain number of computer courses before you start your job.Then they throw you right on the register and you have a person bagging for you for 3 days.Then you are expected to do the job.Wegmans has a orientation day then as a group you are trained on the cash register.They go over a training book and we practice with each other taking each other as customers.Then after a week we take real customers but we have a sign on our registers telling we are trainees.I like wegmans way a lot better.
