I know I'm lucky to have so many stores to shop at so close to where I live. I have several malls close to me and there are Kmarts, Target and all sorts of other shops and stores around here. After talking to some of my friends on fb I realized that not everyone has the luxury NOT to use Walmart and I think they know that.
The last time I was in Walmart, the cashiers were so slow I ended up standing in line to check out for more than 40 minutes and there were only 3 cashiers open with an entire store full of people shopping. And this was at a Super Walmart where the place is huge and in each line to check out there were at least 20 people in line. They never opened another checker and even when people complained the cashiers were as slow as snails.
I called Walmart after getting home because I was so mad about the wait time. I talked to a manager who told me the cashiers were slow because they were in training. I told her she was full of it, that I had been in the same Walmart a few months earlier and one of the girls checking out was the same from a few months ago..she was not new.
I asked why they didn't have more checkers and she told me they don't have enough staff and when I asked about hiring more people she actually told me no one was applying for the jobs. Omg this woman was so full of it. So I will never got o Walmart again.
