First off, let me start out by saying im a cashier at a Richmond Walmart. People come into the store in cell phone trances, paying absolutely NO mind to the cashier handling their money. THey don't even aknowledge we exist. They dont know whether their own card is debit or credit, and if just ONE person knew how to use to debit/credit machine I would be in shock. Im not complaining about every single one of you, but 75% are downright ignorant. DO NOT put your heavy cases of water up onto our belts or your stupid 50 lb bag of dog food in front of us and expect us to lift it. some of us, including myself are small people. You have NO idea how hard it is to lift those things for 9 hours a day when we have codes and there are easy stickers that peel right off that you can hand us. ALso, when you see a light on, yes there's somebody there but don't you think we need a break too? we've probably already been there seven hours and its completely rude to just walk up and throw your things on our belts just because you know we have to come back. No. this doesn't mean im lazy, IM TIRED. There have been plenty of times when i closed the store at 11 30 and had to come back in at 6 30, not counting my drive home. And please, dont run up to me and say idiotic things such as "OH you look like you need something to do. Ill keep you busy." Are you fucking retarded?! The sad part is, we have to smile 24/7 or its bad customer service. we get a tiny mat under our feet, never get our breaks on time, and when we finally get 2 seconds in peace, somebody runs up saying idiotic things like "you look bored" Also, please refrain from your stupid jokes. No, if it doesnt scan its not free. No, we're not having fun. No, the customer behind you doesnt want to pay for your damn paper towels and soap. You have NO idea how old that gets. We hear it at least 15 times a shift. And please, handle your children. We cant do our job with them sitting on the cart wheel or playing with the debit machine. its SO annoying! and if theyre screaming and crying, be a parent! i know none of the cashiers/csms want to hear it and lord knows the other customers dont either. If the prices ring up wrong, DONT SCREAM IN OUR EARS ABOUT IT! 99% of the time YOU picked it up from the wrong place where it was most likely misplaced by another extremely ignorant person. If the prices seem too good to be true, they probably are. Learn how to match up the upc's on your items to the upc's on the shelf. Problem solved. Also, Please check to see if the light is on or off. DO NOT stand in a cashiers line when their light is off when youve been in the store for an hour MAXIMUM and weve been there for nine. We'd love to go home and get some rest too! look people we're all tired. we all have to support ourselves and just because im a walmart cashier doesn't give you the right to disrespect me. I thank all the customers who have respect and dont treat us like were the s*** in their toilet. im a very friendly cashier. i ALWAYS great my customers and am one of the fastest, if not the fastest cashier in the store, therefore i promise ill have you in and out, but please dont make my day any harder than it has to be. For all my other cashiers and csm's who put up with the bs that goes on in this store, but never say anything about it, just know that we all feel the exact same way, and for the customers who come up to me and actually say HI HOW ARE YOU? first, you guys rock. you have no idea how nice it is to hear that for a change!

As a patron, I, too, have seen and dealt with much of what you endure. Happily, I don't have to cope with it for 8 hours... merely the minutes that feel like hours when I've waited behind one or more of the half-witted mouth-breathers to fumble through the process and make way. This is the primary reason why I've long since taken advantage of your 24 hour operation, solely doing my shopping in the wee hours. It's worth the wait for the 1 or 2 registers open just to avoid the drooling masses.

It is unlikely that many will heed your complaints or those akin, now or ever; there is no intelligence requirement for breeding and reproduction, and since morons have twice the number of dependents as their betters, you can expect their foul numbers only to increase.

I suggest you get out of there before you lose all sense of hope in humanity. Seek employ that doesn't deal with the general public, before the percentage goes from 75% to 95%. Trust me, it will only get worse... and if I'm not mistaken, Wal-Mart doesn't exactly offer a lucrative benefits and retirement package to their CS employees.

Happy hunting.

As a patron, I have expected you to lift my heavy groceries, I thought that is what you were paid for. As a patron, it is clear that you do not want my business, I am happy to take it to the meijers store or the krogers up the road. Maybe you can find a good woman to support you so that you don't have to work so hard. I hear lowes is hiring cart pushers if you are so unhappy. Do you want to hear me bitch about my job? Well then, pay for my paper towels, they didn't ring up and should be free.

I have to agree with patron. Apparently you want us to check our own groceries, would you like us to bag them and make our own change too? And allow you to stand behind the register and look cute for 8 hours. Well it doesn't work like that. Some people like myself actually work a real job. So when we get done with a 10 hr shift in a hot noisy factory we have to stop at Wal-Mart to buy groceries. We get sick of having to stand in lines for 20 minutes while you slowly scan things because you don't want to chip a nail or break a sweat. We get sick of being looked at weird because we don't just whip out our food stamp card or wic vouchers for you. We may actually have to write a check, or search for our debit card. How dare you bitch about your job as if you are doing us a favor. It's the patrons of Wal-Mart who pay your salary. I honestly wish I knew who you were so that I could purposely come through your line and put my 3 huge bags of dog food, and several cases of water and soda on your conveyor. Then when your puny ass gave me a dirty look for it I could be justified in whipping your whiny little ass. I made a copy of your post and I will be sure to let Wesley know exactly how his cashiers feel about the customers. It's a shame Joey isn't there anymore because he kept whiny asses like you off the registers so that hard working patrons like myself didn't have to deal with your sorry ass.

I recognize, being a cashier myself, that it isn't the hardest job in the world but i definitely wouldn't call it the easiest. I am on my feet for over nine hours everyday only to leave work and walk to my classes. I lift your groceries, babysit your kids, and contribute my tax dollars to your welfare check; all with a smile on my face while you stand and helplessly watch me unload your cart. As a cashier, I am also treated like I am the dumbest person in the world because of the fact that I am behind a register. So my question is have you ever been a cashier? If you haven't, you should try it before you call us all lazy.

Waaah! I'm telling on you!!! Yeah, being a cashier stinks. So does dealing with stupid ignorant asses. Yes, cashiers are expected to wait on the patron. Yes, the cashier has to be on their feet all day. Yes, we all have jobs....No, wait. No, we don't. While some of us work, others do not. I work all day too, but I do'nt go to Wal-Mart expecting them to give me the world. It's Wal-Mart, what do you want? Them to push the cart around for you? I was a cahier once so I help them out. I will not stand there and let the bags pile up and make the cashier put them in the buggy. I will help them out. I want their job to be easier because the person that came before me made it harder. If you think that by playing the "Customer is always right" card is going to work at Wal-mart or expect any manager out there to give a darn, then you are in for a shock. Here's how it will go:
You go into Wal-Mart with your little printed off paper and ask to see a manger. Who shows up first? A CSM. You politely decline and ask for a manager. 10-20 minutes later, they page the manager again. You will be lucky if you speak with a manager out there. So, after 30 minutes later, you are rather upset that your little tattle-telling session didn't quite go as planned and leave. Was it worth it?
Get over yourself, you are not important. Go to work, go to Wal-Mart and go home. Keep your mouth shut and do it again the next day. If you don't like the service, go through the self-checkout lines and leave the cashiers alone.

I have been a cashier and it is a lazy job compared to the factory jobs I have worked. There are people on welfare that you cut down that would love to have your job. You need to realize that the majority of food dollars Walmart recieves are from government programs such as WIC and foodstamps. If you bite the hand that feeds you, you may go hungry!

In 31 days Walmart's parking lot we look like the malls parking lot EMPTY, that's when Meijer opens.
Then the crybaby cashiers will be crying because they will no longer get their bonuses every three months, no sells no bonus simple as that.

well your first mistake is thinking I am unimportant and your second mistake is thinking I have to go to wal-Mart to talk to a manager. I don't deal with cashiers, I deal with those who get rid of cashiers who piss me off.

To "i hate my life"......here I quote you,

"If the prices ring up wrong, DONT SCREAM IN OUR EARS ABOUT IT! 99% of the time YOU picked it up from the wrong place where it was most likely misplaced by another extremely ignorant person. If the prices seem too good to be true, they probably are. Learn how to match up the upc's on your items to the upc's on the shelf."

It is NOT the customers job to make sure that the prices are correct.The walmart stockers are the ones that plug the shelves and if the prices don't ring up correctly it is not the customers fault, but walmarts. Here is a good suggestion for you....if you don't like your job....quit.Simple as that. Don't blame the customer because you hate your job. We all have things that we don't like about our jobs but you don't see us on here whining about them and being a cry baby. You and other walmart employees like you are the reason walmart loses business every day. So smile and do your job and stop bellyaching.

(without customers you have no job)

I bet your one of those moms who let their little brat run loose through the store screaming and knocking sh*t over aren't you? As a patron, I don't want to hear your little noisy brat while you calmly say,"stop little johnny..stop" while eyeing those jeans that your big frumpy butt will never back into. Nor do I wanna stand behind your huge buggy full of crap in the 20 or less line! Have some curtesy for others for God's sake.

Original poster, there are so many things wrong about your post. I can count on one hand the number of cashiers who greet me with even half a smile or even talk when I come to their register, and I have been unfortunately going to Wal Mart for many many years. Where are the signs at the register that say please leave all heavy items in your cart, there are NONE, I am the one lifting it onto the conveyer belt I am the one placing it into my cart. And yes if your light is on, unless there is a closed sign in your lane I am going to come to your register, why, because that is why you are there, to work!! As for prices and shelves, 90% of the time the shelves are not correct, once again, this is part of your job! I worked for KMart while in college and some fast food places in high school so I have worked the job. If you truly do not like working with the public, than you need to find another job!!I am still amazed at all the different people I have met over the years, both good and bad some have made me laugh, others have taught me life leasons on how not to act. The only thing I do agree with is the cell phone, people need to learn to put them down it will not kill you to not take a call. You need a change of jobs that is for sure!

Emarld! Atleast I'm working. Maybe I should sit on the couch all day, with my five kids, from five different daddy's and collect welfare. When I do that, I will makesure to send you a Thank you card, for paying for all of my unemployment benefits and food stamps! But, then again I'm not from Kentucky originally so I believe in working!

Is working as a cashier why you hate your life?

Be glad you HAVE a job. I'm sure there are plenty who'd be more than happy to replace you.

People with your attitude (and it shows through whether you think you've successfully hidden it or not)is why I do it myself at the u-scan aisle.

So again, we have found the two shining stars who greet people and ask them how their day is. AND you're both pissed that people don't treat you with the respect you feel you deserve Well, too bad! When I stop off at Walmart for lightbulbs and papertowels, the last thing I want to do is search for the ever-elusive price sticker, while wading through a sea of trailertrash and their 8 out-of-control children, then wait in a line of 20 people who smell of Brut and cheap beer, at a register that is one of only 3 open, in a line of 20 that seem to NEVER be open. After this ordeal, my cell phone rings while in line, and I am not supposed to take the call for fear of offending one of the only two cashiers that actually greet people with a smile? Are you fu**ing kidding me?. I walk up, say hello, WHILE attempting eye-contact, but typically get no more than some obligatory mumble in return with little or no eye-contact back This is a typical experience at Walmart. Then, to top it all off, some idiot who pretends to be checking my reciept against the items I am departing with expects me to stop and wait in his/her line to get out of the store.Get this straight: Most customers of Walmart have come to expect a shitty experience every time they visit Walmart. Walmart have eliminated the mom-and-pop stores, thus, leaving us few options..And just to prove I am not just some crabby old butthead, I'd like to say that the only people who seem to care about their jobs at Walmart are those we have come to classify as "challenged"...They almost always DO smile and ask how your day is....They seem to enjoy the human interaction, as if they look forward to showing up for work each day.....They almost always make eye contact with their customers....I think they genuinely appreciate their jobs and the customers who come in.I think you other shining stars can stand to learn a LOT from them......AND, as for "peoplesucks"'s comment, "First of all lady", this smartass statement speaks volumes concerning your attitude.

I don't know who the he!! you think you are? Good for you if you think you are important. Managers (most) at Wal-Mart could give a frig less. Most of them have so much going on in their own lives, that they turn the other cheek if the cashier is rude to you. Do you have fringe benefits with one of the managers or something? Wouldn't surprise me if you did!! Anyone who has ever worked at Wal-Mart knows how the employees, managers included, feel about rude, whiney customers. Go ahead and shop somewhere else.

I may not work at the Richmond Wal-Mart now, but I did, and I know a lot of the associates there. I know how things work. Some will work their asses off for the company and it goes unnoticed, then you have those who do absolutely nothing and get praised. Of course those hard workers are going to be bitter, tired and not to mention most are under paid. And those of you who say to suck it up and get a different job if you don't like it, can bite the big one. These people ARE working and are putting up with rude customers day in and day out. It may be their only option as far as employment goes. Everyone needs to vent sometimes. Deal with it!!

Lets just see how well you hate your job when you lose it and have none and you'll be one of the welfare/food stamp people coming through someone else's line. I thought your job was to ring up items, if you can't lift them or handle it then find another job! If your boss finds out who you are on this post you will be fired.
