Darlington County Intervention School students get behind-the-scene look at Walmart
Students at the Darlington County Intervention School (DCIS) got to chance to go on a behind-the-scenes trip to Walmart recently.
Dr. Zenobia Edwards, director of DCIS, said the school took a group of students to the store as an educational experience.
“The students got a chance to see how the company works, what the manager looks for in employees and some of the associated benefits of being a Walmart employee,” Edwards said.
Kevin Lane, store manager for the Darlington Walmart, led the student workshop before giving the students a storewide tour. The group met with departmental managers and explored how the business operates.
The experience aligned with goals at DCIS to provide students with real-world experiences and skills necessary to obtain employment or continue education after high school.
After the trip, she said several students submitted applications for employment.
