I have learned enough from working in retail the past few years that everytime I walk into our walmart I see at least 5 things wrong. First of all everytime you go in it seems like their is never more than 2 lanes open at a time, with at least 5 customers in every lane. Why have all the checkouts if you don't use them? Secondly what is with the kind of people they hire out there? I've went in the store and seen 2 employees making out down one aisle, a guy who reeked of alcohol in another, and God forbid you ask for help. Anyone else have bad experiences at our friendly neighboorhood walmart?

Stop this now!!! I know several people who work there. They do a good job. If you really saw someone reeking of alcohol, why didn't you approach a manager. You probably were fired from Walmart and want to down the people working there. There are fine people working there! IF you have a problem, call the 800 number if you are straight up!

I think the post title is very misleading. I've personally not had an issue with any employee there; If you call a cashier not wanting to engage in idle chat during a checkout- maybe once or twice-'bad', then perhaps.
My only complaint is the lines so far. I go 3-4 times a week usually, and every Saturday at 8 AM. The manager who I met recently certainly wouldn't tolerate the situations you described. Not sure what's up w/that.

I do agree that there are a few problems with cashier staffing but if you have problems and definitely if you saw those others thing you need to call 1-800-Walmart.

Theres more than a few problems at walmart. I think they need to hire people that know what they are doing. The people that work there act like they have no sense and quiet a few dont, not sayin any names. walmart was great at first but its went straight to H#ll here lately

haha the hess girl is anything but helpful. i dont know how she even got hired at any job much less at a job that deals with customer service. she is the MOST disrespectful and rude person i have ever dealt with at walmart. I guess walmart will hire ANYONE.

Wal-mart will hire almost anyone that can pass a drug test. I know what I am talking about when I say only 20% of the applicants they try to hire can pass the drug test at C-Health.

The issues with checkout lines not being open is not the employee's fault at Wal-Mart that is 100% a management issue.

For the most part all the ones working checkout do a good job there are a couple that are really slow.

thats sad. i think to work with customers you should have a good personality and be actually "friendly" not someone berude and not know what they are doing.

I agree with you with on lines. its the managers fault (the one on the clock at the time) they should notice that its getting busy and open another register.

I use to work at Wal-Mart and People are Rude not the wokers the shopers they come in MAD becouse they know the store dont have what they want (even if they do) they say the store moves what they r looking for (even if they dont) and if you try to be nice to them they bite your head off and we wonder why the WORKERS are not nice at times look at your self and say was i nice to them ?

I also worked at Big A in the meat dept at one time they had this mystery shoper person that come around and I got reported becouse I was in the Meat shop Cuting meat (and I like my fingers) and I did not make eyecontact with them LOL funny
That would be like THe guy over there Spliting Atoms did not look at me wow do people really think they are that damn importent ?
Most people that are working will not look at every one that walks by but if you were to ask them for help they will help you ...

Do you expect the employees to make min wage and have a personality too....

It doesnt matter what the wage is.When a person applys and takes the job they know what the wage is.They dont have to accept.Personally I think they should make more too but walmart is in business to make money not make employees wealthy.I have had decent experiences for the most part but if a cashier is rude or snippy I think about the other 1,000 customers before me of whom at least 50 probably treated that cashier like crap.At that point the cashiers snippyness no longer seems important.

All the Wal-mart employees work as hard as they are paid. If you had a minimum wage job then you would not work your ass off to try to get the cookie brands in alphabetical order. This ain't Bristol folks. It ain't like we are gonna have 20 checkouts open. I think Black Friday had a record of 50 people there. Get off their backs.
