Walmart cashiers are (insert derogitory term) ) - Page 2

post #16 of 37
Hey Chris,

Of all the marbles in the plastic mesh bag, I'm probably near the bottom when it comes to one that should be giving advice, but I think you're going to get crushed on this one. I'm sure it was aggravating to have your excitement stomped out by a Walmart cashier. I've been there too, but your post is wild and the logic sucks it hard.

If I were you, and I know I'm not, I'd do a little retraction. Maybe something along the lines of "I posted this while I was upset and I understand now that bashing random Walmart cashiers won't get me my toy any sooner. Thanks for understanding. I just needed some place to rant." That's just me though.

Really, you'll get the thing, and it'll be even sweeter then. You have to know the bad to know the good?

Don't blame the worker bees.... Get the management.

She did her job, and you're acting like a(n) "insert derogitory term".

I'm strongly with Samgotit and Plainsong on this one -

Do you always treat the hired help like this? Your girlfriends will leave you if you do. A word to the wise, should be sufficient...

So girlfriends are hired help?





I know you probably didn't mean it that way, but that's kind of how I read it.

ok continuing to say it's recalled when you say something else yes she should be wearing a helmet... but if the register says sale not allowed it means sale not allowed... no overrides can be done to allow the sale... AT ALL

My little brother is a cashier at wal-mart. He's always very polite to customers and gets them and their precious plastic goods out the door as fast as he can. However, whether at wal-mart or any other retail outlet, a cashier has no power when a computer system gives them any kind of "sales not allowed" message. I work at circuit city, and people act like we try to screw them every second of the day, but we are just following company policy. If we break it, we lose our jobs. Oh, sure, she could have just called a manager to help, but when you think about it, that would have wasted her time, your time, and the manager's time. A word to the wise, if you see a computer tell a cashier that there is a problem with an item and they don't fix it with a knowing "ahh, this happens all the time" or some such remark, just say, "thats okay, I'll get one later" or "I'll come back, hopefully the store can have it fixed by then." That way, the cashier doesn't feel harassed and you don't have to get all angry.

I went in to Walmart a couple months ago to pick up a ZVM as they had a nice price. $190, listed on their site. They had it listed at $240 in-store, so I asked the worker if they'd match their own price of $190. He said no, thats not their price, even when I clarified that it was the walmart site.

Dumbass.

Is it possible that $190 is their 'web-only' price? That's not uncommon.

I wanted to buy something from a Computer Builder's Warehouse store after seeing it on their website. Went to a brick and mortar CBW and the item was priced higher. They wouldn't sell it to me at the 'web-only' price. Gotta pay for the store overhead.

Yes at the time i posted i was angry/frustrated with walmart in general. I wasn't thinking about the whole picture. But, in general, i dislike walmart. If they had the item on display they should've been able to sell it to me. I do retract my previous statement about the employees and just direct it to to walmart itself.

Sounds like the girl was doing her job. I'd cut her some slack since she's not in a position to make or change policy.

Heck, I'm sure there are some bad cashiers at Wal-Mart, but I generally do not shop in chains that have the word "Mart" in their names. Haven't been in a Wal-Mart in a very, very loooonnnngggg time.

Change the thread title to Home Depot instead of Walmart, and I'll agree with you

I worked in retail for several years while in college, and will agree that most of the cashiers are pretty awful at their jobs. In this case, however, the cashier did nothing wrong.
