Walmart: going through the whole store with a scimitar since black friday

As an unloader at walmart, I can confirm that is the reason.
Fifteen minute break, ten minutes in checkout line.

Previous wal-mart employee here (night shift).
Only a number of people are register trained, and it's the CSMs job to call everybody up when the lines get full. Now on night shifts, even on nights that we blow up, we still don't have many register trained people, and even then people like to call in. This is what pisses me off, though:
CSMs won't take charge of a register to help out. They think they're better spent elsewhere. If you go to wal-mart and this **** happens, you find the CSMs, and you tell them to get their ass on a register. They power-trip like ******* crazy and think just because they have the word "manager" in their title, they don't have to do basic work. **** them. You tell those lazy ***** to help out their associates, or you'll call corporate. They will cry like a bitch if you dare to call corporate, because corporate LOVES to rip people a new one.

what? I worked carts and unloading for a couple months and literally the first thing I did after safety training was shadow a cashier so I could learn how to operate a register and I got called onto register like 8 times when it was busy

As a current cashier, CSM's hop on tils all the time. Especially when low on cashiers. But if they don't it's not there fault, they still have their job to do. They have to give money to tills, use their keys to fix any mistakes the cashier has made, or even do running around and finding prices for things. They have it harder then most, I wouldn't go putting blame on them.
User avatar #60 to #56 - manofparody (01/31/2014) [-]
I worked night shift for 2 years, and our CSMs were lazy as **** . Registers were packed as **** and while handing money to the cashiers, they'd sit there and talk for 5-10 minutes about random **** .

So for anyone wondering: My experience applies to my wal-mart. I can't guarantee that your wal-mart has ****** people like mine working at it, but I can say that they tend to have more CSMs than they need, and at least one of them can hop on the registers.

no, Walmart plans it that way so customers will wait in line longer, and be more likely to buy the stuff on the candy racks, especially if they have kids with them.
#35 - sniffythebird ONLINE (01/31/2014) [-]
Big FYI: Don't be an impatient **** when you gotta wait a whopping minute in the line...

If it's a late night on a day where there's normally not many customers, there won't be more than 2-3 cashiers in most stores. Now what happens is occasionally people come in in groups and it can go from completely empty to a line of 5 people all of a sudden. Customers who are almost done picking their items hang around the area close to the checkout, and if one customers goes to the checkout, the others notice it and follow because they want their place in the line. Domino effect, and bam, there's a big ass line all of a sudden. I can attest to this happening a LOT, and most cashiers will have noticed it.

tl;dr: Customers, chill the **** out if there suddenly is a long line to wait in. It varies a lot, and it's not like we can send in an army of extra cashiers on demand. It's not like you can't just go on your phone and browse *********** facebook or something while waiting like everyone does.

i work at walgreens so our counters are set up for a pharmacy, like a 10 items or less kinda thing, and it really grinds my gears when people come up with carriages full of things like we are the supermarket or walmart. im not set up for that. it is the most obnoxious thing a customer can do at my store especially since most the time the main register is the only one open and if i need help i better hope that the guy in photo or the person is cosmetics is around.
User avatar #37 to #35 - saltyfries (01/31/2014) [-]
person who works in retail here, very very true, when it gets busy we usually pull someone off the sale's floor (that is if they're trained at cashier) to work cashier until it dies down. Our store usually has 1-2 checkouts open cuz it's almost never busy near closing let alone during weekdays. I'm not trained at cashier unfortunately (been working there for over a year and I honestly thank the lord I've never worked cashier), I work truck, or if I'm on sales floor I'm the muscle or helping customers, or autopull (pulling stuff from our backroom onto the floor to be sold).

When I worked at Walmart (as a cashier), they were having trouble keeping cashiers. They had older cashiers who had been on the job for awhile, but they often worked during the day. After about six the number of cashiers dropped down significantly, so there'd usually only be about two people on until closing (midnight.) I'm really wondering how the Super Walmart is going to be since we'll be switching over soon...
#24 - lotro (01/31/2014) [-]
Maybe my Walmart is different, but when I worked there, unless several people called in, there were usually enough people to keep the lines at bay. If the lines did get out of hand then some members of management would even come help us out.

Stop buying walmart stuff

Except everything at my local small business is twice as expensive and I don't make the money to be buying from them plus afford other things because yay for a bad economy and a job that pays minimum wage.

This **** right ******* here. I get annoyed with this **** everytime I go to stores. It's like "hey, let's just keep barely enough checkout lanes open so that the lines are long, no matter how many people are shopping."

I've only see all the lanes open on black friday.
#17 - giinthir (01/31/2014) [-]
It's the same thing at my local store. One time, I asked them why. Do you want to know the answer I received?
"Because some people are sick"

User avatar #16 - douthit (01/31/2014) [-]
They have fewer cashiers than they need so customers will wait in line longer, and be more likely to talk themselves into buying the stuff on the candy racks.

Ok, I work for a merchandising company that works strictly with walmart so I am in 15 different walmart stores a month. This morning in Minnesota we got half a foot of snow and it took me 2.5 hours to get to my store for the day. I am looking for a parking space when I notice a cart attendant in the parking lane, so I go slow and swing wide to avoid him. Right as I'm about to pass he whips out in front of me and I had to slam on my brakes so I wouldn't run into him and the carts because he pushed the machine right out in front of me. I look over angrily because he almost ****** up my car and surely caused a lawsuit for me and all I see is this. TLDR: Almost squashed a downs
#13 to #11 - blissey (01/31/2014) [-]
you sir are stupid,

Im sorry that this poor ******* kids is ******* pushing carts IN THE SNOW

literally, you know how hard it is to push carts in the snow? the machine can only push like 8, TOPS, if the snow is as bad it is

if it wasnt as bad as it seems, then you are just a little bich complaining about the snow,

ANYHOW, there are literally, LITERALLY 16 different parking lot lanes, you chose to go down the one with the cart pusher

and oh, instead of waiting, you decided to try to go around him

you do know that there are no stop buttons on cart pushers? just slow and fast?

IDEALLY, you should have given him the right of way, and waited, but no "muh walmarts!"

unless of course, you are advocating that he should wait FOR EVERY SINGLE CAR TO PASS ON BY, while the front end managers are yelling at him because customers dont have carts because they are too lazy to bring some from outside, and because customers like you decide "im a saint by going really really slow, and going first" instead of having empathy for the only minimum paying position in walmart


red thumb me back, i dare ya
User avatar #61 to #13 - sparkajh (01/31/2014) [-]
He was inside the cart rack, I did slow down and wait but he wasn't moving, he just decided to move as I was about to go by and because I had already slowed to wait I was able to stop in the heavy snow. I had just pulled into the lot, it's not like I purposefully chose the lane with the cart guy, like you seem to think. I have nothing but respect for mentally challenged people working as I used to be a personal care attendant. On top of that my first couple jobs were outside and minimum wage. So before you call me high and mighty you might want to think about other peoples point of view. You dare me to red thumb you back oh great one? What are you, ten?
#55 to #13 - anonymous (01/31/2014) [-]
Not only that but at our walmart we don't even have cart pushing machines, we have to push the ******* carts in the snow by hand in the brisk, windy, cold while these ******** drive by.
User avatar #41 to #13 - aeriesiapna (01/31/2014) [-]
I'm one of those cart pushers and all of this actually ******* happens! and worse! Every day!

and in my case there's only half the number of workers needed to get the job done. our idiot managers have refused to hire people for months.

but its not the only minimum paying, unless its just our store. cause Us, maintenance, truck crew, Greeters, and lawn and Garden are all level one.
User avatar #18 to #13 - tealcanaan (01/31/2014) [-]
I'm pretty sure, like all the other Walmarts in the North Midwest, they hire one of several local guys with a shovel attached to his pickup to plow their parking lot at 4 a.m.. Also your inferring a lot about the situation and dimension of the parking lanes that aren't readily read, so why don't you calm our tits.

User avatar #22 to #18 - thegrimgenius (01/31/2014) [-]
Spark said the snow was a foot and a half, blissey is just going off of what he said. Also, not really 100%, but most Walmarts follow the same design plan (At least for the outside,). This is going off of every walmart I've ever been to being exactly the same on the outside (Only 1-3 lanes difference total.)
User avatar #23 to #22 - tealcanaan (01/31/2014) [-]
"half a foot in the morning", no big, also I was referring to the way he refers to the positions of the carts and the driver. Also it's totally understandable to go around the cart collector if he is in the rack area ( may look like hes still collecting or waiting for an opening). I just don't appreciate how this guy goes on a ******* war path making up half the **** along the way.
User avatar #26 to #23 - thegrimgenius (01/31/2014) [-]
Eh, I agree bliss did assume a great deal, but I still disagree with spark's actions.
User avatar #27 to #26 - tealcanaan (01/31/2014) [-]
"Had to slam on breaks.....look over angrily....could have had to gotten engaged in litigation". I think he reacted reasonably,didn't even yell at him, or call him retarded or something.
User avatar #29 to #27 - thegrimgenius (01/31/2014) [-]
And yes, I'm know I'm being hypocritical.
User avatar #28 to #27 - thegrimgenius (01/31/2014) [-]
Why couldn't spark just wait for the cart pusher to get out of the lane? [And yes, his actions were reasonable, but the way presented makes him look like an ass. (Mainly the sentences in the beginning, perhaps the ending, I don't know.)]

I work overnights at Walmart and, after midnight, most of the customers that come in are: a)drunk, b)playing around and not actually shopping, c)shoplifting, or d)just plain stupid. I've had people ask for help while I'm using a floor buffer when there are other employees standing just ten feet away. The worst is when you are stripping and waxing the floor and someone completely disregards the caution tape. I had to literally physically stop someone from walking on to wet wax. Most of the people who complain about Walmart have never worked there, or any retail job for that matter.   
   
tl;dr customers are 						*******					 stupid.

why not just take cashiers out the equation and have all lanes be self check out
or
invent app that lets you scan products as you are shopping it
when you are ready done it charges what ever account you use
debit,credit,paypal,bitcoin(seriously though wtf is bitcoin)

that way for dollar and cents users the 2 lane checkout would make sense
#9 to #2 - anonymous (01/30/2014) [-]
Actually there is a major reasons for this I was once a Walmart cashier and it would actually be distastes if all the lanes where self checkout.
1. Self checkouts are one of the worst places people steal products because they look like they bought them.
2. When they update the systems there is always major bugs with the system that pretty much cripple them and if you are a store that corporate does not care about good luck getting repairs.
3. Programs like wic and checks still need to processed by humans especially in Oklahoma where wic is still in a check form.
4. Large items like bikes and pools are a monster to handle at a self checkout.
5. One of the major things is price check. When Walmart lowers the price of items they never put it in the system its always done by hand at the register. Heck when I worked there they made people who where in charge of the self check out actually check people out at their register. I worked there for a year so I could say more.
