BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Jan. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- “Life within a Big Box: The Perspective of a 25-Year Retail Associate” (published by Archway Publishing) by Megan O’Hara offers her insider’s perspective of the inner structure of Walmart and what it’s like to work there as a 25-year employee.


Sharing an hourly associate’s perspective, the book shows what it’s like working for Walmart. O'Hara brings attention to some of the issues that plague the company, but also fun and camaraderie between the associates. Additionally, she highlights the hard work that goes on in the stores. The book takes place in 15 Walmart stores in five different states over a period of 25 years.


O’Hara hopes to give her readers “a better idea that Walmart is not as bad as everyone thinks. When they walk in the door of their local store, they will see it in a different light. I am hoping salaried management and CEOs who read this, know that what they decide affects us as hourly workers.”
