I went to Walmart on Sunday and only two checkout clerks, seven people called in and shelves unstocked, then found this article
I went to a Northeast Texas Walmart on Sunday around 5:00 p.m. and only two checkout clerks there and shelves unstocked; one on the express and one on a regular checkout. Very few people in the store. I knew the lady that was ringing mine up and she said seven people called in.

Then I ran across this article and the employees are saying:

"it’s piling up in aisles and in the back of stores because Wal-Mart doesn’t have enough bodies to restock the shelves"

I don't believe it's just a staffing problem. Maybe other countries aren't shipping their crappy products anymore. Something is going on.

If China gets mad at the US, starts using their industry for war effort instead of junk products, or creates trade sanctions..then wouldn't Walmart be out of business the next day?

I also went to Wallyworld on Sunday morning.

Only 2 checkers as well, with many people standing in line to pay.

Meanwhile there was a whole wack of workers standing in a circle doing their Wallyworld cheer.

I walked up to the store manager, asked him to stop the creepy cult like behavior and put some f*cken clerks on the checkout.

He came back with "we are mandated to do the cheer"

I repeated "It's creepy and cult like, if you have to do it, do it somewhere where I as a shopper will not be subjected to it, now open some registers."

I could see the other workers smirking as the manager sent them off to open tills. Two of the workers approached me and thanked me, they also find the cheer creepy and cult like.

Sigh, I should know better than to shop there, but Costco was not yet open and I needed litter for the kitty's shitter.

I went to one and the check-out clerks had no shoes. Seven other people called-in because they had no clothes. Someone's been stealing their shit in the middle of the night.

Target?

I live in Northeast Texas and I was at my local Walmart Sunday also.
Found the same thing. Really strange! I was there late too. Normally they have the freight out and are restocking, but not that night.

I hate Walmart. The one near me just finished a huge expansion to include groceries. Now the front of the store has a bunch of checkout isles, but there are hardly any cashiers. The place is aggravating beyond belief.

 Quoting: The Loophole


I run a small retail business. I have to place some of my orders 6-8 months ahead of shipment. Each year the deadlines get earlier and earlier. They need to know months in advance because there are increasing labor shortages in China as the 20 somethings wake up and realize they want to live in the "western world" and refuse to work the factory jobs. Driving the cost of goods up.

The past two years I have seen a shift the other direction. This year especially. They are now extending their deadlines months past prior years. Begging for orders. I am very ambivalent about placing as many orders as I do usually this year. For them to be extending deadlines, and offering discounts on top of their normal ones lets me know that I am not the only one who is hesitant.

Also I have found that I am having to manufacture more and more of my product myself. I am very lucky to have the skills and ingenuity to do so.

Manufacturing needs to come back in the US. Stuff from china is not cheap anymore. I have found that my local grocery is just as cheap if sometimes not cheaper than Walmart. Heck I have even found cheaper items at WHOLE FOODS than Walmart recently.

THIS!

My sales are down this year so far. Last year was our best year ever. I am very concerned. Even so much that I am only working 4 days a week and I run the place. I can afford to take a pay cut. My employees CANT. So I am sacrificing one day a week right now.

I was at the mall a few weeks ago and could not believe how empty the stores were. There should have been huge clearance racks of winter for the spring items coming in. There were no clearance racks anywhere. I have worked retail for 25 years. I have never seen this. There is always a clearance section. Especially during the season switch times.

I worked in a factory for 6 weeks ONCE. Minimum wage even though I was over-skilled for the position. After 6 weeks I had enough and just worked harder at the small business I helped my mom run at the time.

Heck, why work at all when you can get it free with your EBT.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24473407



I used to work in a grocery store. The one I worked for cut down on employess and employee hours because - at least they said it was because - they couldn't afford to pay them. It was just awful how those of us who still maintained hours were overworked...and this happening while we were being told there'd be a hold on wage increases for apx. two years. After about a half of a year of it I put in my two weeks notice and moved on.

Given Walmart's wealth, though, I fail to see that this is their problem. A lack of humanity, perhaps, but not a lack of wherewithal to have some well paid employees. They are not struggling like the smaller store chains. The store I worked at had its finacial problems begin when Walmart opened their store in the small town. The store I worked for had been the only grocery store for at least a 45 min. drive.

BTW, youse guys--


ALL Walmart stores are a portal to Hell. You shouldn't go there without having sprayed some ClingOn BeGone Hairspray on your noggins.

Here in Michigan Walmart is doing just fine, never enough cashiers, but you know they REALLY want you to get in that self-checkout line.

Malls, however, are not doing so hot. They are practically empty. They are a thing of the past, though, and soon they will all be history.
