Nicholas Martuscelli's insight:

walmart being walmart...

this could one of the reasons why walmart has such a high employee turn over rate. if they open at 6pm those employees may need to get there at 4 or 5pm.

Yahoo inflames employee sentiment by making managers rate workers on a forced ranking system that follows a bell curve, and then fire some of them
