paper or plastic?
i love shopping at your stores. i really do. you are everywhere, you carry just about everything, and best of all, you are cheap! that last one really helps a girl like myself out. i can now buy way cooler stuff that i want, because i didn't just pay an a**load of money on stupid food.
i do have some frustration in regards to your employees. why don't they know how to bag groceries? i would think that in the job description, correct bagging of groceries would be high on the list, i don't know for sure, but my best guess is that it's up there.
from what i have seen from most of the employees at my local walmart, is that you had them watch a 10 minute video. and i am sorry to say, i don't think the video has paid off. in fact, i would bet that more than half of your employees were asleep during it, which would explain why there is so much variance in their bagging process.
you have the one dude who seems to think that everything weighs the same. he apparently sees no reason why heavy canned goods should not go on top of bread. either he is unaware of physics or he is an a**hole who is upset that he works at walmart, so my bread suffers for his life decisions.
then you have the bag nazi who seems to think that there is a shortage in bags. hey, i am all for not wasting excess resources, but there is a difference between being eco conscious and just an idiot. in what world does it seem appropriate to put an entire cart of groceries into 3 bags?! srsly? what the fetch?
and lets not forget the exact opposite of the bag nazi, the lady who seems to think that each item gets its own bag! so then i end up with 30 bags, which is not only awkward and weird, but it's also wasteful. why is there so much inconsistency in their bagging???
oh well, as i said earlier, your prices can not be beat, so i will continue to patron my local neighborhood walmart, but agghh! doesn't mean that it isn't frustrating each time i go!
you should really look into changing your bagging orientation,
p.s. sound off- where are the places you hate going?
