The ‘Walmart Record Zoom Meeting’ video, part one
The Walmart Record Zoom meeting is a video from the 1970s.
It’s a meeting between an employee and a customer.
This video is part one of an eight-part series about the meeting.
Here’s part one: Walmart Record Zoom Meeting Walmart, a large company that sells everything from toys to cars, is the largest retailer in the U.S. and one of the largest in the world.
In the 1970’s, when Walmart was a fledgling company, there were only about 400 employees in the company.
It was a small, struggling company.
Walmart’s future was in jeopardy.
In 1978, it acquired Wal-Mart Stores.
It took over the old Sears, Roebuck & Harriman chain and sold it to a consortium of big retailers.
Wal-Marts revenue had fallen by more than a third.
There was a lot of talk about the company being in trouble.
The stock price crashed and Wal-mart lost $10 billion in market value.
The company blamed a series of problems that were mostly blamed on the workers and customers.
It also blamed a shortage of computers and computers didn’t work.
“We had a very difficult situation.
People were going through a lot.
The people were very loyal.
They were loyal to us,” says Wal-marts executive director of customer services, Jeff Johnson.
“They were really loyal to their families and their children.
They cared about their jobs.”
And Wal-maes employees loved it when customers would come into their stores to check out their products.
“A lot of people that were coming into the store wanted to talk to us about our products.
And the kids loved it.
And so, they came in and they had their pictures taken with the products and they were talking about them and they wanted to come in and try it,” Johnson says.
WalMart didn’t like the fact that its customers didn’t know what their product was and the employees didn’t care.
“There was a little bit of a divide in the workforce between those who were loyal and those who didn’t,” Johnson said.
“I think a lot more people who were not very loyal would come in.
But that was a very small group.”
The Wal-ms store became popular because it was inexpensive and easy to use.
It could also serve as a meeting point for the employees.
The employees could be friendly and have a lot to talk about, because the store was a large space.
But Johnson says they had to learn how to deal with customers.
“Walmart didn’t want to have any confrontation or conflict with customers, so we had to be able to walk into a store and talk to a customer and say, ‘Hey, this is a Walmart product.
This is what we sell.
And this is what you can get at the Wal-mos store,'” Johnson says in the video.
“And that’s not a problem.
That’s part of our job.”
The employees learned that people could talk to the store manager, but it was hard for the managers to communicate.
Johnson says he learned to talk through the store managers, but that was hard because there was no communication.
He says that’s when the employees came to understand that the store needed to be upgraded.
Johnson and other workers were paid $12 per hour to work at the store.
That was much higher than other jobs.
The workers would go home and do all the work.
They would do things like cleaning the store and putting in carpets.
“If we did a job well, we would be very proud of it.
If we did something bad, we were very embarrassed,” Johnson recalls.
Walmart had one of its first computers, called a BASIC, in 1977.
It wasn’t until 1978 that Wal-Mos began to make computers for its employees.
It would take another three years before Wal-Mars computers were widely available.
“It was like a new era in computing.
You were able to do everything you could do in your home computer,” Johnson explains.
“You were able go out to the mall.
You could go to a store.
You had a way of doing business.”
But Wal-mas computers weren’t popular.
People weren’t able to buy the computer because the price was too high.
They didn’t make enough money to pay for the computer and they weren’t profitable enough.
Walm-mart needed to improve the computers and the workers were told that if they could buy the machines at a higher price, then the company would be more competitive.
The more money the workers made, the better the computers became.
But Walm, Johnson says, didn’t always buy the best products.
The most popular products were expensive.
“In terms of the technology, the IBM, the DEC, the Atari, the PC, the Apple computers were the most popular.
That really was the main technology.
So, it was the computers that were the big money makers,”
