Business Visit: Walmart Glen Carbon
-
Edwardsville CEO is excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from Walmart’s Walmart Giving! Grants and donations from local investors and sponsors provide the necessary resources to allow our facilitator, board members and local high schools to integrate the CEO program into our community.
-
Skip Sponeman, Manager of the Glen Carbon Walmart store, took time out of his busy schedule to give us a behind-the-scenes tour of our local store. Skip has worked for the Walmart corporation for over 35 years where he started as a cart pusher. Since then, Skip was promoted through the ranks and successfully opened multiple stores across the nation. He is extremely thankful that because of his hard work and dedication, Walmart was able to help him achieve his goals of traveling the country, opening new stores and eventually settling back in his hometown with his family.

Being in charge of a large store comes with its share of difficulties. Skip is proud that his store has been able to tackle their large volume of merchandise by:
-
* Improving efficiencies
* Embracing new technology
* Evolving and improving staff roles
-
Being willing and able to constantly assess customer satisfaction and integrate new ideas and technology is so important. Skip advised our students that no matter which career path they end up following, to always have a positive attitude and to do their best.
-
A huge thank you to Skip for hosting our group and for awarding the Edwardsville CEO program this generous grant. We sincerely appreciate your time and support!
