Walmart
« on: February 05, 2016, 12:52:04 pm »
I get so sick of going to Walmart especially on the weekends and they have 40 registers and only have 3 of them open.

I am curious if this is just our Walmart or do they all do this.

We have 3 Walmarts in our area.  2 Superstores and that is always the case, only a couple of registers open at the busiest times.   The neighborhood market Walmart is better.   Few registers but most of them are open at any given time.

I have a friend who worked there for many years. I think they have really down-sized their help. Soooo hard to find someone to help often.

I have learned to use the automatic check-out, and use that more and more often. There are usually a few free when I go through.

Places like Walmart will never lose too many customers, even when help is hard to find. Folks in my income bracket need Walmart, for the prices.

My Wal-Mart is pretty good about checking people out. I don't recall ever having to wait very long.

Even if it's busy, I don't like to use the automated checkout. I would rather have a person getting paid to help me. That's a win-win. Scanner doesn't smile or say hi to me either.  :wave:

In order to get decent prices we have to travel 80 miles to go to a Walmart.  And yes it is always the same thing not enough cashiers. I hate having to stand in line for a long time after having to go all over the store for items. It seems like they want you to buy but they don't care about you when you check out.  When I have to go to my doctor who is 167 miles one way we stop at Walmart on the way back and I tell you it is a nice big store and you rarely have to wait to get checked out.  I am going to go to the new Sam's club  this next . It is only 106 miles from home. Granted a little farther then we would go but is is a straight shot in on the freeway. Does not really take any longer to get there. I am really looking forward to it. I like buying in bulk since I have to drive so far.

Yes. This is exactly like the Walmarts around here... 40 registers & like 3 open.   The large supercenter one, has televisions half way through the lines to occupy people as they wait.  On the week-ends it gets crazy there.  I think they could add a cent or two.. or three & hire more workers.

The little neighborhood Walmart market they just opened up seems to be run more smoothly, they have 4 self checkouts always open, & there doesn't seem to ever be too much of a wait.

I tend to think it's ALL Walmarts, or any other store like Target, etc.  Ours only has a couple of registers open at a time, too.  If you've noticed, none of these stores have the stock they used to, either.  We just had a big Walmart open here last summer and already they've dropped some of the things I buy on a regular basis.  Annoys the stuffin' out of me!

Walmart is awful. I keep telling myself to stop going there and start going to Target.

I never shop at Walmart but I'm not surprised at this.
