How far I walk at Walmart

I wondered months ago, “How far do I walk during my shifts at Walmart?” I knew it was a lot, but didn’t know how much.

The store I work at is a supercenter, and I walk through the whole store multiple times in my shift. We’re required to come in and go out at one entrance and the time clock is on the other end of the store. Then all of the walking in my department, to the service desk, finding someone to cover my lunch and breaks, etc. It’s a lot.

I thought about buying a pedometer to find out, and the other day I did just that. (Not just to see how much I walk at work, of course, that’d be silly.)

The results are startling.

This is just from today, I don’t have a sample set or anything to compare it to yet.

Before I went to work I had walked 0.69 or so miles.

I was gone for about 9 hours. My total is now 8.61 miles.

I walked nearly eight miles in nine hours! That’s so crazy!
