I cannot, will not, lower my expectation of what i expect, to the current mindset of employees working when i enter store...
I set the high standards...and do not follow their low ones...
Walmart should hire me to give seminars on how to change attitudes of employees...
I would run it like boot camp...

What a fool..

To equate class to a shopping experience. Perhaps you could expand your philosophy to asking the checkout clerks at the grocery store to expand your knowledge of nutritional support or the flight attendants on an airline to help you with your travel plans..

Not only are you simple, but completely unrealistic.
If I was the Walmart greeter I would tell you to "Get the f$%K outtahere..!"

We have a grocery chain, PUBLIX down here in the south, that is one of the very best....they have alot of buy one get one deals and if you pay attention are actually often a better value...

<quoted text>I remember reading in a trade magazine that Walmart paint was rated highly by Consumer Reports. The article was warning contractors that their customers might be 'requesting' Walmart brand! The reality is it probably is an off blend of SW paint and it's probably fine for your living room. I wouldn't use anybody's cheap paint outside where it's subject to the elements and saving dozens of dollars and cost you thousands.
My only exterior painting experience, is a gallon of trim paint that did real well....i live in south florida, so the heat and humidity can be a problem...but the quality seem's fine....i just don't care for many of Walmart's business practices, like pushing local politician's for taxbreaks and zoning variances, then coming in and wiping out local business's, that did'nt get any special favors.....just not fair....

It's curious to me why town councils won't
give breaks to small businesses. Some of these
guys have gone in and asked only to be turned
down when they know the new WalMart store was
given a break.

It's ugly when a small town goes under. And hurtful
to the whole community. The logical thing to do is to
try to keep all of your business afloat.

I think the better course for many communities, has been voting againest the local access for additional Walmarts....then driving a bit more, if they feel the need to shop there....

Would your boot camp training include eating out of garbage cans???

You balked at that but knowing you, you would probably except them to do things you would or could not do.

Stop resisting me...

For one...class begets more class...

When 'class' and 'grace' becomes a standard...everyone is better off as a result of...

Income and job title should have no bearing on ones ethics...

Ethics is something generated from within,...internally, not externaly...ok...get it...

Like those old blck and whte Abbott and Costello movies where even Janitors wore Captain styled hats and uniforms...it was a mindset...
Back then a Janitor felt as accomplished as a pilot...supposedly...
At least that's what I was told...

My point is...employment at Walmart should not have any bearing over ones ethics...

Custimor service is making everyone feel like a million bucks...

Custimor service is having a even temperment throughout the day, towards your retail guests...

Custimor service is making a custimor who walks through the front door feel like a valued guest...

Custimor service is realizing that shoppers have a choice..and realizing they spent time and gas money to come to your place...reward them for their choice...

Custimor service is treating every woman like a queen or princess...and treating every man like a kind or prince...

But as soon as they violate your trust...let the devil have them...

There's no need for anyone to eat out of garbadge cans when we both know Walmart sells frozen pre prepared dinners for .99 cents...

Have you ever been to their frozen isle?
Spaggetti dinner .99cents...

Lasagna dinner .99 cents...

Hungy Mans meatloaf delight .99 cents...

There's no need for anyone to go hungry when dinners at Walmart only cost .99 cents...

wise up...

We were discussing boot camp training not Walmart frozen dinners, remember??? Thus the remarks about food from garbage cans.

I don't shop for frozen dinners at Walmart. I like Amy's veggie meals sold at Whole Foods, Publix and health food stores when frozen dinners are on my shopping list.

So I've heard but haven't seen myself.
We've had another one move in locally just
this year.
I'd be thrilled if someone would just open
one nice shoe store:)

Kmart...oh Kmart...

Kmart failed cause they simply hired under qualified managers to run their stores...

They failed to keep up with the times...
And half the time i'd walk into their stores, towards the end, half the shelves were not stocked...

They had limited inventory...could never find what you wanted...stores always seemed under staffed and hallow...empty...

And they stopped play good elevator music over the speakers...

Kmart use to be known for playing good elevator music...

Kmart lost their identity along the way somewhere...luckily Sears bailed them out...

I buy dog food, TP, mach 3 blades, shampoo, cat food, school snacks, chips, sodas, dried foods, tuna, salad dressings, etc etc etc. I drop like $200 a week there. I just don't buy meats, shoes, etc there (because "you get what you pay for"). If I want something of quality, I shop for those items at the appropriate store.(ie: furniture at my local furniture store, shoes at sears, pennies, dicks, etc.)

I don't need an associate pandering to me. I do not need nor do I want the attention. I prefer shopping to be my "out". When I'm "out" there, leave me the heck alone. It's my me time.

Actually what happened is K-mart sold some of their stores to Sears at quite the price. Sears then went into bankruptcy and K-mart bought out the entirety of the Sears chain. K-mart owns Sears. Google it....:)
