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.


Hmm, sounds pretty reaso..

Dumb.  That's what a business degree from a liberal college gets you.

You almost managed to write an entire post without blaming "liberals" for everything that's wrong in the world. Don't worry, hon, we're really proud that you're trying, keep it up.

Tomorrow in group session we'll each try to talk about a bad thing or negative experience that liberals weren't responsible for. Don't be nervous, I'll start us off by talking about how one of my shoes came untied earlier this week, and I think cheese boy is ready to admit that maybe it isn't "liberals" who keep drinking the last coffee in the pot.

We'll get there together! With any luck, before long you'll be able to hold entire conversations and not once feel a need to bring up how bad the imaginary liberals that only exist inside your head are.

trotsky: I used to go there because I could get ammo, TP, hot sauce, a frozen pizza and beer.


Sounds like a hell of a weekend you have planned.

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.


Thanks, Obama.

Intrepid00: It has finally happened. Wal-Mart is now Kmart.


THIS.  Empty shelves and post apocalyptic customer levels define Kmart for me.

The shelves are empty at Wal-Mart because all the merchandise is laying in a heap on the floor.

Sounds just like CVS.


Oh come on, nobody actually manages a CVS.

Well, they don't have to dress up like they're going to Walmart or something.

/Still gets a laugh out of that.

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.

The 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.


Don't you understand those heirs worked hard for that money. It's not like their family just left it to them!

Target and yes I have a problem with that!

The local walmart is not putting pallet dispalys in the aisles and in front of the register area, this combined with the family reunions in the aisle make the place unshoppable.
