Walmart should watch this short.
25 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

While very dated and poorly executed this short film made some good points. I say Walmart should watch this short, mainly because they have a nasty habit of throwing their workers to the wolves with very little training. Most of the time management has nothing to do with the new employees initial training, instead electing to sit in their office and drinking coffee or giving things to an irate customer who has been caught stealing. Yes, this one has a man who is in charge of his own car dealership. He is frustrated by the lack of productivity from his staff, however, his dad points out that you have to work with your employees and not just assume they are going to be great at what they do. Great points, valid points, but it is still an extremely boring short to view with very little entertainment value. It is not without some humor, but the humor found within is not intentional as the father inexplicably puts a handkerchief on his head and the one guy jumps down one of his employee's throats for the way he demonstrates a vehicle despite the fact he sold the car. So while this one does make very good points, it is rendered almost unwatchable by the way it is presented.
