I frequent the Cape Wal-Mart in the mornings and I've seen a trend that I find annoying -- and potentially damaging to business. It seems the off going night / shelf stocking crew hangs out in front of the grocery entrance. The group of eight or ten partially blocks the entrance for arriving customers. It gets annoying, day after day, having to half to walk around this group, through their cigarette smoke and listen to their cussing, ranting and gossip.

Yeah, I understanding their jobs suck and it's a free world. They are off duty and can do as they please. Spare me. They are employees, still on their employer's property and shed a negative light on the business. Management needs to relocate this group or urge an alternative location.

Funny. I also see this mob standing blocking the entrance while smoking and talk smack almost every morning. Bunch of wierd-o's.

Why are you on here complaining? When you see this taking place grow a set and say something to them or here is an idea, try going to the manager on duty and filing a complaint with that person.

why the hell does eveything have to turn racial. i have never once in the last twenty years heard of anyone being turned away from a job for being black. if anything its the other way around thanks to affirmative action. if a black and a white apply for the same job with the same qualifications, they will hire the black. i'm not racist but i think if you want to be equal then hire based on merit and not because you have to have a certain number of blacks. the job market should be completely color blind.

don't have to explain nothing to you, you white smart ass, it's obvious to anybody with a brain

Obviously the one without a brain is you. Only a primitive mind would get mad and submit to name calling instead of backing up what they said. Any one can make a statement but the statement has no substance if you cant explain why.

The employees outside the front of the Walmart..are off the clock. You must have sat down and eaves dropped their conversation to know they were gossiping. If you think it's bad in the morning..you should see it when they are on lunch break! That's a good 30 minutes of loud language and smoking!
I have a feeling YOU are an employee at this store and YOU should probably voice your concern to the Manager if you think it would get you someplace. Good luck with that!

As far as hiring Black employee's..this store can't even get people to pass a background check or a drug screen. We can't get ANYONE to hire on here because they won't put down the dope! Yes, I know it's Walmart.. but they do have a set of standards.
It doesn't matter if they are black or white or asian or purple! It's way more fun to be lazy and use drugs than to be a responsible adult.

I'd like to complain about the customers that stand at the door and block the way and smoke their cigarettes. I don't smoke and so why do I have to smell it? And no I can't go through the other door in the early morning because it's locked. But, it also happens at other times of the day also.

If you're annoyed with the smoking in front of the entrance at Walmart COMPLAIN TO MANAGEMENT! Walmart employees are not allowed to smoke near the entrance when on their breaks from work. If they're off the clock I don't believe that management can do anything about it. If they ARE smoking near the front on their break and get caught then it's a coachable offense... meaning they will get reprimended. I hate going through those doors and breathing in the poison too... but as an employee I pretty much have no say... they listen to the customers before they take our suggestions! Call 1-800-WALMART and tell them about the problem. I would LOVE for every single one of the employees to complain about it!
