Smeggy Smurf: basemetal: Don't forget the micromanaging that walmart does from Bentonville, rather than let managers and employees do their jobs. Some of the policies and pilot procedures they implement, show that no one that came up with some ideas ever had to work in a real store.You mean like not letting produce managers order high demand produce when it's running low? Yeah, there's nothing like running out of sweet onions 3 days before Thanksgiving and not being allowed to call up your buddy at the onion farm 3 miles away to send over a couple crates. Nope, corporate would rather run out and try to fire the manager for running out. Nevermind that the manager no longer has any control over the produce stocks.
trotsky: I used to go there because I could get ammo, TP, hot sauce, a frozen pizza and beer.
NewportBarGuy: Nina Haagen Dazs: So where do the people of Wal- Mart go now?Probably those stores with the word "dollar" in the name.
Why Would I Read the Article: Everything ever is Walmart's fault, and if it isn't, it's Bush's fault.
Intrepid00: It has finally happened. Wal-Mart is now Kmart.

WhoIsNotInMyKitchen: unyon: I'm inclined to buy Walmart's official story on this from TFA. It'd hardly be surprising that in some locations there are staffing challenges. Walmart won't even build a store near Ft MacMurray AB- they know that they won't be able to hire anyone for anywhere close to what makes business sense."Business Sense" being the lowest possible wages imaginable to ensure the Walton family hiers (aka Job Creators) don't starve to death.http://articles.latimes.com/2012/jul/18/business/la-fi-mo-walmart-he ir s-20120718The net worth of the six walmart heirs is a as much as the bottom 40% of americans combined. I can see why they can't afford to pay a few more people to stock the shelves in the shiatty stores.
Nina Haagen Dazs: So where do the people of Wal- Mart go now?
gopher321: So why are the shelves empty?
