Was at Walmart again this morning - ONE register open, and it was one of the '20 items or less' registers. Guy at the front of the line had like 50 items. Everyone else in back of him had a handful of items. They need self-checkout in the worst way.
Probably some are from those areas, but have you looked at the Romeoville Police Blotter lately? Most are from this town.

It's Walmart...what do you expect? When Walmart first started expanding all over...their thing was Made in America. Now if you buy frozen fish from them...it is raised and packaged in China. Try Trader Joes in Naperville and the Meijer off of 59. TJ's is a bit of a ride but the quality of food is WAY WAY better and it really isn't more expensive...

Unemployed people are not looking for jobs at Walmart. Trust me on that one. Retail jobs are a dime a dozen.

Your dead wrong! I manage a national retailer and I see dozens of applications a month of overly qualified people who I will never hire. People from banking, tech, and real estate industries. The unemployed people who take satisfaction in EARNING a buck will take any job they can get as to avoid being a leach on society. We all pay into unemployment, but most hard working people would prefer it be a very temporary way to feed your family.

Is anyone else experiencing problems with Walmart lately? I have noticed a significant decrease in the quality of their produce (as in seeing them actually stock the shelves with moldy strawberries and not carrying ANY fresh greens, only bagged with preservatives) and they always seem to be short staffed with extremely long check out lines. I have shopped there since they opened and have never experienced problems like this. I am calling their corporate office Monday morning to voice my concerns and switching groceries stores. Any suggestions???
Suggestions? How about getting your head out of your a$$? Have you ever heard the expression "you get what you pay for"? If you want to buy cheap Chinese crap or outdated food, keep going to Wal-mart. They are making plenty of money, praying on all of you "budget conscious" individuals that keep buying into their crap. They are laughing all the way to the bank. You need to support stores that are featuring products from the USA and don't try to wipe out every mom-and-pop business out there. Do you think that they care if you are upset that you have to wait in line? Not a chance. They have you brainwashed that everything they sell is cheaper than any of their competitors so they know that you will wait to fork over your hard-earned cash, allowing them to buy more sh*t from China to shove down your throats.

Agree with you about buying American goods, but they are difficult to find everything you need. Also, the prices tend to be higher--yes better quality, but in today's economy, it's hard to stretch that dollar. It's a catch-22. Not anyone's fault, but the manufacturers that went over seas and the govt. that allowed it to happen. That being said, the customer service is American--and it's very poor at that.

I want to say, MOST unemployed people. If you are desperate, you do what you have to do.
And like I said, be nice to those Walmart people... they don't make very much money. If you want to complain, complain to store manager or corporate. Or better yet, shop somewhere else.

Hi guys, i actually work at this store and have to say that i understand why everyone is frustrated. I am not a cashier, but they have thrown me on a register numerous times with no training whatsoever and expect me to know what i am doing. There is a big turnover as far as cashiers go, hence the long waiting time. I myself have tried to get answers as far as why more cashiers aren't hired, and get no decent response from management, ever. As far as the store going downhill, well that is another mystery, even to us associates. Personally I have never thought much of the way this store is run. They cut our hours and no one can ever tell us why. I am grateful to have this job, but the stress is killing me and I am currently looking into other options.Perhaps things will get better one day, but to be honest I'm not holding my breath.

Several times I have seen expired meats like hotdogs and lunchmeat on there shelves and I am not talking a day or two but at least a month. When I said something once I was told "that happens".

I was there several weeks ago, just a handful of registers open, long lines and 6 employees having coffee at dunkin' donuts. Now I know people deserve a break, but could you not all go at the same time, in front of the customers as it looks bad.

I avoid going there and only when its something I must get from there and then I try to go on a weekday early.

As someone who has worked retail many moons ago, I know what you mean. The problem is that this store has gone downhill so fast. I used to love shopping there, now I'm at the point that I would rather pay Jewel prices (which with a sale and a coupon are pretty good, most times better.)

Dont waste your time going to this store, long wait times at registers, very disorganized, I ve seen better organization at the goodwill stores. Clothing sections looks like a mess every thing is just tossed and put anywhere it lands. Employees seem not to care if you shop there or not. Door greeter I encountered was an older lady that was really rude to me as I am disabled and needed to take the scooter to my car due to the amount of bags I had, she literally chased me down in the door entrance , and told me I couldn't take scooter out, I usually shop at the Plainfield store which by the way is very clean and organized and never a problem. When I asked why she said the cart boys don't have the time to go out and bring it back in,are you kidding me, they retrieve the carts don't they? I have a lot of health issues that requires me to use the scooters, I could understand if the weather is bad, not to take outside. Her final remark to me as I am not outside the store with her still yelling at me was well you walked in here without it, little did she know or care that my husband has to pull up to the door because I can't walk the parking lot. This woman certainly should not be a greeter. I hope if she ever gets a disability that she isn't treated as rudely as I was.

Lol gives the impression I'm yelling. I go to target for the same reason. If I don't like something I avoid it. People want everything to cater to them, individuals like that should've been swallowed. I don't care who uses the link card I don't care what ghetto whatever what where. I don't like it I avoid it,

Don't bother emailing the store if you have a legimate complaint because they don't bother to do anything about it. This too shows the lack of customer service from this store. Shop the Plainfield store they know how to treat and respect their customers needs!
