Want an Insider’s View of Shareholders? Just Follow Me

Ryan Pollack at Walmart Home Office

For the first time in quite a while, I have no idea what to expect out of the week ahead.

Instead of overseeing what’s happening at the supercenter I manage in Hillsboro, Texas, I’ll be doing something completely new: I’m traveling to Arkansas for Walmart’s annual Shareholders activities. And it won’t be something I’ll only report back to my associates, family and friends – I’ll be sharing everything I’m doing with anyone on Twitter.

So, if like me, you’ve ever wondered what this big event is all about, you can see it from a newbie’s perspective for three days on @WalmartHub. From Tuesday morning through Thursday evening, I’ll be taking over the handle and live-tweeting my experiences.

Nine years ago, I took a position as an overnight stocker at a supercenter to help get me through college. While I intended on going a different direction after school, mid-way through, I really began to love what I was doing. I heard about a department manager job that was available, and thinking back to what I’d heard many other managers say – that at one time, they used to stock shelves, too – I decided that staying with Walmart was a smart move for me. In March of this year, I was promoted to store manager.

It’s been pretty cool how this surprise career has unfolded, and I can’t wait to see what’s ahead. When I found out what that means for this week, I’ll be sure to share on @WalmartHub – so take your seat now and follow along!
