call 1800walmart and tell them that store 519 in harrodsburg ky needs more help.
home office is keeping their hands tied.
I'd say they don't make much there . The bottom line is with management but working with the pubic is hard as heck . I remember & it was not pleasant. I don't know what will ever come of Harrodsburg .

Tongkat is right on the nose. You remember how WM used to hire summer help, also temp help during holidays, etc, well NOT the last couple of years. They continually cut hours on the PT employees and add more work as other workers are absent, sick, vacation, etc. NO one can cover 2, 3, or more areas and do any kind of job. All it takes is one or two customers to ask for help, and an associate can be tied up for 30 minutes. WM in Ark. sends the merchandise, H'Burg does not order it. They constantly send things that might sell somewhere else, but not here. WM Corp does not care. Call 1-800-walmart and complain, complain, complain.

doesnt matter what they get paid. they need to learn people skills before they are hired. rudeness is not the jobs fault.

It's funny how they all treat me nice, and I'm in there all the time.
And sorry, I don't think you need to go to college to be a walmart associate.

The associates take the flak when most of it isn't their fault.
Usually 1 person has 5 departments. Not an easy job....

I remember my daughter worked there and they were told to wear navy or blue shirts and khaki pants, well one day she wore a blue shirt with her name on it and they told her she can't wear that anymore, but just on the next register was a "pretty boy" with a tee shirt that said volunteer fire fighter across the back. Guess the management must have been sleeping with him because when she ask about him they told her he was fine. Harrodsburg Wal-Mart has rude cashiers,rude and nonexistent management . I remember we were buying a wireless printer one day and had to return it for some reason, They called electronics girl up to the service desk. The blonde with the bad hand, she argued me up and down that this printer was not wireless because it had a power cord. I said lady they have to be plugged in to electricity they do not run on batteries, so stupid.

yeah , I tried returning something recently and I think it cost only a little over 15.dollars , it stopped working , took it back ( had receipt ) & some short haired girl with chubby face looked at me like I was lying ! The damn thing stopped working .! I almost exploded . I called management & said to come back .the main thing was the ATTITUDE !.

I have never heard so much complaining in my entire life. I have never had a problem with this store. How much help and service do you need? I go in and get the same things about ever week I know where the items I need are at. And if it is something I have never got I can generally determine what area it's in and I ask for help. Never had a problem not one time. I'd say that the people complaining on here would complain about anything. You just can't please some people.

So basically what you're saying is, you made a mess and someone gave you the means to clean it. That's why they're rude and you wont shop there? What do you do if you spill shampoo when you're not at Walmart? Leave it and hope someone comes to clean it?

I agree Walmart has it's shortcomings but the reality is: it's inexpensive and a one stop shop. Harrodsburg does not generate the type of revenue to require several similar businesses. If we had Target and Meijer, one or multiple would surely go out of business and I'll tell you what- it won't be Walmart because they have the better prices.

The only hard worker they have there is that cart pusher boy, I think his name is Danton or something like that.

So you made a mess and wasted their product and were upset with them because you had to do the responsible thing an adult should do?
