$7 to check a Walmart Black Friday Display...

What a great shop...if you want to risk getting shoved and trampled by the crowd...

The description says, "It may be a bit hectic but be brave..."

We have some WM shops in our area that are paying a bonus, but they require speaking to a manager about inventory. I figure that's a dead end this weekend! If they are still out there on Sunday, then maybe. But I'm not setting foot near a WM for the next two days for myself and no job will pay me enough to go there! LOL
I just two of these shops, and also for the coffee demo audit to go along with them. For me at least, I went to my car crying laughing at how stupid this whole thing was. I walked into the store, ate a cookie got a water and did the other shop for the location. By the time I went to the other location, the money from the first shop was in my account.
Wednesday my husband (a Walmart store manager) went into work at 10am and left at 1:15am
Thursday he went in at 8am and left at 2am
Friday (today) he went in at 7am and hopes to be home by 7pm....
He said it's been absolutely crazy the entire time and they did over $500,000 in sales yesterday alone.
I don't understand what Walmart wants to guage from these shops? It's quite difficult to actually provide 'customer service' when you have that many people in the store.

1. This is a stress test for the managers? Someone wants to see juuuuustttt hhhooowwww fffaaaarrrr they can be pushed during this bat-crap-crazy busy time?
2. This competitor shop is looking for something besides customer service?
3. Someone wants to find out whether the demos are still a good idea at this time or not? Are they paying their way in this sales-per-square-inch (per foot?) world?
4.Someone wants to fill the parking lots and the aisles? ["Gee. Wouldn't it be fun to send in a bunch of mystery shoppers and give the illusion of more customers than there are in reality? This queuing technique works pretty well..."]
5. Someone wants to demonstrate all the various things that customers can do and buy? ["Mmm hmm... they will eat and drink. They will look at displays and talk to people. They will buy big ol' honkin' expensive stuff! The play's the thing..."]

Or not.
