People, just answer the man's question if you can. Keep your liberal soapbox to the "off-topic" forums.

As for me Tod, I've never done any work for them. I try to stay away from jobs with tons of cars and people around. If there is one thing I have noticed about them; people shopping at Wal-mart sure do like to throw a lot of trash on the ground. Good luck though.
It's not just people shopping at Wal-Mart, although the bigger one I do, we would pick up 3-4-5 30 gallon garbage bags of garbage each week off of the property.

I do 2 strip malls as well, where they're paying me to go to the malls 3 times / week just to pick up the garbage that's there. It's only an hour or so / day, but it's garbage none-the-less.
Give thanks, for all that He has given.

I have been doing a Wal mart for 6 years now. Includes lot sweeping, sidewalk power washing, snow removal. At first it was kind of a PIA job because of contracting and invoices had to go through Arkansa. They changed that after the first year. Now all contracts and invoicing is done at the store.
