Stipulated: Wal-Mart Sux

I’m done with Wal-Mart. For good. I've never much liked their stores anyway.


They (top management) really are a complete bunch of assholes. This is just another in a long line of offenses against labor that I won’t tolerate. They are too big and too arrogant (remember this?). They don’t carry anything I can’t get elsewhere, even if it’s 28 cents more.

I couldn't agree more, Dave. I haven't stepped foot in a Wal-mart in years, and I've never looked back. It's a point of pride for me that I don't shop there.

your first link is bad. I assume you were talking about the WalMart management warning their local management that if the Dems win, it will make it easier for their slave labor to organize.

Thanks Geek, link all better now.

I never liked Walmart either. You feel like you have to get all dressed up to go there. Like it is some kind of popularity contest to be seen shopping at Walmart. Well dammit, I dont feel like dressing up when I go shopping and being around snooty people. That is why I go to Dollar General!

rick have you seen some of the people who shop at Wal-Mart lately? Not really the dressed to the 9s type freqenting there. Last time I went, felt like I was at a meth convention.

Blevins,

No, I havent been there lately. The only time that I go is when my wife is 8 months pregnant or after I have received a new tattoo.

My trip there on Father's Day eve was a disaster... Though that wasn't entirely their fault.

Still, it seemed that, for some items, none of their employees seemed to know where they were; they said that the items had recently been moved around.

Then again, when it's past midnight, and you need to pick things up, alternative options are slim.


Also, our federal, state, and local governments need to crack down on businesses hiring illegal aliens - once the labor market is tighter, that will forces these companies to deal with regular workers, and raise their standards. Until that is done, any progress will be limited.

What is it with people and WALMART. IF some body had the means and ways and oomph to open a STORE for all of us that like ONE STOP SHOPPING and also can save by buying the NAME STORED BRANDS and they are good PRODUCTS then what is wrong with this SCENARIO except that NOT ALL people LIKE the same things. nor do we all like to shop at the same places and then there are we whom would rather go into a STORE where WE CAN spend all OUR MONEY IN ONE PLACE FOPR ALL WE NEED from SOUP TO NUTS TO FURNITURE TO FOOD. AS for the UNIONIZATION AND WHAT workers get paid or what their requirements are THEY READ all this before being hired so if they do not like the rules and the pay then go get another job .. NO REASON for all to deprive one stop shoppers just because SOME DO NOT LIKE THIS STORE . GREAT DON"T shop there I AM POSITIVE there are enough people that are not JEALOUS OF the PERSONS EXPERTISE TO MAKE A STORE PROSPER AND HAVE MORE SHOPPERS THAT THEY CAN ALSO AFFORD TO LOOSE some. I believe it is called FREE!!!!! ENTERPRISE!!!!!!!! and the KEY WORD and IMPIORTANT WORD IS FREE!!!!!!!!! TO BUILD A BUSINESS AS BIG AS YOU CAN and CARE TO.. without GOVERNMENT TELLING YOU you cannot do that or stop your bussiness from growing . NONE HAVE TO SHOP IN IT IF they CHOOSE TO NOT SHOP IN THAT STORE COURSE we whom are FOR WALMARTS COULD GO TO GOVERNMENT AND MAKE A LAW THAT ALL HAD TO> hmmm think tyhis would work just as many want them to be CLOSED SO we ONE STOP SHOPPERS NO LONGER CAN DO SO??? DOES NOT sound very fair and just to me CHOICE !!!! FREE CHOICE ..

Well, any person who works for WalMart and LIKES it is a self centered sado-masochist.

They are abusive and don't grant holidays or benefits to people who haven't worked there for a year.

They also expect you to work when you are sick and have a policy that says they don't have to accept a Physician's 'out of work for health reasons' note.

Management may suck, but a lot of the employees contribute to the suck factor by leaving behind work they are responsible for by hiding multiple carts of 'put-backs' in places they won't be noticed until later so the following shift workers are saddled with their work.

And to the anonymous WALMART member of MANAGEMENT who left the previous ANONYMOUS comment with LOTS of MIXED ALLCAPS and lowercase, you're a little too obvious with your comments...
