It’s easy to see why. For Donna, showing up for work every day means more than badges or paycheques — it’s about being there for people when they need it most.
“My biggest thing is helping customers and looking after the associates,” Donna explains. “They really have issues sometimes and they just need somebody to talk to.”
She says things have changed over the years, especially when it comes to technology. But even after 50 years in retail, Donna is not yet ready to retire.
“I enjoy working here,” she says. “I’m stretching for 55 years — I’m going to try!”
This isn’t just a job for Donna – it’s her second family – and she appreciates being a valued member of her team.
“It is a great company,” Donna says of Walmart. “They look after their associates, but they also look after their customers very well,” she continues.
After 50 years in retail, Donna says many things have changed. However, one thing remains the same: Donna’s passion for helping people.
“I like what I’m doing,” she says. “I’m not ready to quit yet. I don’t want to give up.”
