Availability: Ready to download

After 15 years in retail management, Ben Brown found himself heartbroken, jobless, and living in his parent’s basement. In the worst economic recession in 25 years, Ben took an entry level job catching shoplifters for Wal-Mart. Not just any Wal-Mart, but an inner-city test store in the Midway area of Saint Paul, Minnesota.

In the worst economic recession in 25 years, Ben took an entry level job catching shoplifters for Wal-Mart. Not just any Wal-Mart, but an inner-city test store in the Midway area of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Drugs, poverty, and violence plague the area to this day and Ben’s interactions with shoplifters show the complications of the inner city. Wal-Mart: I Don’t Belong Here is the first memoir by someone who lived Wal-Mart, not a journalist pretending to be an employee. This is an unflinching look at bungling management, wildly incompetent corporate rules, violence, sadness, and sometimes…redemption. If you love, or even hate, Wal-Mart, this book is the truest account of what it is like to not only work at Wal-Mart, but answers the question you may be asking: Why do people work at Wal-Mart?

  1. 4 out of 5

    The grammatical errors were so distracting that I could barely finish it. The chapters seem to repeat the same things we know about the characters over and over and there are inconsistencies from one chapter to the next.

    I found this book fairly entertaining and a quick read. It could definitely use a good editor, because the grammatical errors were a bit distracting. Some chapters were a bit repetitive, but such is the drudgery of retail. I won’t feel the need to read again, but not bad.

    This book would have been great if it was written well. The plot and customer stories were interesting, but the constant grammatical errors were distracting and made it hard to finish.
