John J. Ethier is the academy manager of Leicester’s Walmart training center. Here’s what he had to say about training with Virtual Reality. “What it does is actually allows us to train associates for something that happens once a year. We can teach them 365 days and prepare them for the hustle, including the holiday rush, and disruptions. I think it is a great type of technology, to put somebody in a situation they are not always in and how to prepare to act on what to do in that situation. It is a new technology that gives us the benefits of actually being somewhere and not being there.”
