Wal-Mart has more rude employees than friendly. I do not blame the employees, I blmae the management. Employees should enjoy their job and take pride in it. Instead they are just there. The Wal-Mart store in Oneida is the worst one around. Go to Jamestwon or even Lafollette and the atmosphere is so much different. Besides that the prices in oneida are usually higher than the other stores. There is no competition for Wal-mart here. They have ran out most every other store here. Wal-Mart is not a good thing for any small community. I buy as little as possible from there. When possible I buy from Save a lot, dollar general, dollar tree, Family Dollar, or Plateau Drugs.

I guess its a matter of interpretation. I've never had any issues with the Oneida Walmart. I mean, I go in with my list, I shop, I pay, I go home. Whenever I ask for something or for help. Everybody is different. I don't expect to get a nice person EVERYTIME, sometimes I get the rude guyy, big deal. I get what I need and I move on.

I will not buy anything from Wal-Mart. all Wal-Mart is good for is putting the small man out of business. I would love to have food city back. Wal-Mart has not done anything to benefit this community.

I disagree. Walmart employees local people, pays a tax for their revenue and property, supply people with good and services. Yes, they have hurt some small businesses, but I think those small business would suffer with or without Walmart here with today's job market. I'd rather have them here, than not.

Haha your kidding right? Wal Mart IS Oneida. Have this store leave and watch your local economy. As bad as it is I would say this is one f the businesses keeping this place from being a ghost town!

If walmart left, this place would be a ghost town. Walmart is a good thing, it employs a lot of people and they have decent prices and great food.

I have watched Wal-Mart destroy moer than they have helped. If Wal-Mart was to leave then we would have a chnce at getting an Ingles or Food City or maybe even a Kroger - A target, Big Lots or soemthign like that. Wal-Mart has too much control in this community. I wish they had never came here. They have doen nothing but over charge us for merchandise and cost alot of people their living. Wal-Mart leaving would not make us a Ghost town it was make us an of opportunity for many businesses.
Keep praising Wal-Mart and keep paying the high prices they bestow upon us. The prices here are alot higher than other areas near here. Keep it up and pretty soon you will not be able to afford that place either.
