Opportunity Services and Rochester Walmart South


Yesterday, KTTC stopped by Walmart South in Rochester, Minnesota to chat with Opportunity Services clients and Store Manager, Bob Fligge. Last month, Walmart hired six Opportunity Services clients. Not only are they filling a void at Walmart, management is also seeing a change for the better in the recently hired individuals. When asked what his favorite part of the new job was, new employee Kyle Boehm said, “Doing the work probably and meeting some new friends.”

Store manager Bob Fligge said an employee’s reaction is his favorite part. “Just to see the smile on their faces and to see the sense of accomplishment. To see the fact that they earned that paycheck. That was by far the best day that we’ve had,” said Fligge. Because of this collaboration, these individuals have found enjoyable employment that they previously thought was impossible.
