So is it just me or are they not letting people check out in the normal lines and stuffing people into that stupid self check out?
Its such a pain to be pulled over to something i dont want to do.
Hope its not like this all the time.

If they insist that people do that who don't want to there is a way to handle that. Just leave your cart where it is and head for the door. If you don't have a cart and have item in you hands to check out and hey insist you go to the self checkout, then place your items on the floor where you are and head for the door. If people start doing that, they will get the message.

They ask you if you would like to use it and they will help you if you don't know how to use it. Helps you get out faster when it's busy so you don't have to stand in line. Happened to me today. Got out faster. Not a bad thing.

If they don't get like 1,500 transactions per day at the self-check out or something like that, they're going to lose them they said. Don't knock a good thing that lots of people enjoy using rather than standing in line waiting for loads of people! Be thankful that they're still there as an option!

I use the self check out all the time when I have 10 items give or take. It is quick and easy. They did pull me aside the other day when I was heading to a cashier. I was glad they did, because I learned something new! I never knew you could use a personal check at the self check out
Not bad but

Fast and easy if your not behind someone with a full cart. Its not the checkout its more of why do they have 5 pepole stand by them when they could have others going? Does it take one person in a bright yellow jacket and 4 others to run it? Guess its just annyoing when you want to get in and out (yes at the time they had all the lights off for the other check outs at 10am)
hmmm

Id rather get my shopping done and cashed out quick then care about some number they need to pull in. If they cant do it without something like this well to bad. For a few items its great but as someone said why waste pepole standing around when you could be cashing others out? And they are "self" check outs if you cant use them one person is fine to show you.
hmmm

They do have many cashiers standing around gossiping and what not when lines are full.don't pretend to work actually earn your check.and they want people to do self check out so they can trash talk people.

I dont blame the employees. If management cant make a good decision it isnt their fault. As far as making the employees wear that vest. Thats a total waste of time and it is demeaning. If you cant see the badges they wear and know they are employees then there is something wrong with you. I can see the vest for the cart people for higher visibility but in the store..thats just wrong. Now im not saying the self checkout is a bad thing. Im just saying the way management treats their people to try an promote more use of it is wrong. Maybe a better way is to use one of them to show people how it can benefit them using it . show groups of people how to use it and all the things it can do and offer a coupon or something if they take the tour. It would take less people and still get the word out.

can't do gift cards and other things at the self checkout also every time something goes wrong the cashier have to put the key in that holds up the lines and they have to punch numbers every time.

It is hard for people with small kids also to use it..it is hard to take care of your kids and use the self checkout at the same time. It is also harder for disabled people to use it. If it takes a walmart person to stand there and help you use it then that defeats the purpose of SELF checkout. The management needs to rethink the way they do things there. They are not using their heads.

First of all lowville has the smallest Walmart I've ever seen and yes they needed one for jobs and they needed a store but not one filled with one of the harshest management teams around Who by the way chose to hire a large portion of dumb and lazy people!!i do get its lewis county. But straight up ridiculous!!! Because they turn around and are mean to these people. and just so you're aware most companies have uniforms or certain color shirts that they have to wear. it's just the way it is it's not a way to put them down. Walmarts are supposed be open 24 /7. But not that one.when even mcdonalds is and 3 gas stations are and they have employees working overnight at walmart. so they can easily keep a check out open.for people who may need something they have homeless people sleeping on benches in there.truley I think maybe the management team needs to be replaced.and self check outs are a great thing if people want to use them.but it will actually help people lose their jobs if it went to well.times are changing but older people may not get it.

Where did you get the idea that Walmarts are suppose to be open 24-7? If it were profitable, Walmart would stay open, apparently it is not. Your comments about the uniforms is weird.

those vests have a single purpose. high visibility for safety. They were never meant for selling items. They dont have a right to demean anyone. and one or two vests being shared by multiple employees is not sanitary. They already have their uniforms and badges so they are going over and above on what you consider uniforms.

Quick search shows Ogdensburg, Webster, Newark and Macedonia. That is just in Central NY, not too mention throughout the county.
