Today I needed to go to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple things before the work week began. As I was walking through the main entrance, you can just feel how crappy the store really is. The main reason that I return is for the lower prices for certain items. I cannot stand going there because not only are other customers rude, but the associates at Wal-Mart are worse.
They have absolutely no customer service skills and are not helpful at all. I first went back to the electronics section and when I first entered the area, there were 3 employees just standing there talking and socializing. I don’t understand how Wal-Mart allows its employees to just stand around socializing and being useless. I then went to look at the Bluetooth headsets they had and I found what I wanted so I selected that headset.
I had to go to the register that was in the electronic section because the headset was in a plastic security box. When I went to the register there was no one to be found at all in the entire electronic section. That is just one example of why Wal-Mart is a piece of crap store and hires the worst employees of our society. I stood at the register and waited almost 10 minutes for an employee to come over and assist me.
I was absolutely pissed off because the guy was an absolute idiot ad didn’t know what he needed to do to get the box undone. After I was able to get that handled, I headed to the deli department to get some sandwich meats. When I went over there were 4 employees behind the counter assisting customers. It was extremely loud and I could barely concentrate on what I needed to get. When I was asked to come to the counter, the woman asked me what I needed.
I went up and asked her for a pound of Prima Vera chicken breast and she then asked me what number cut I wanted. I didn’t want it to be too thick but I didn’t want it falling apart in my hands. There number cutting scale is number s 1 thru 10, 1 being the thinnest and 10 the thickest. I decided to choose a number 2 and didn’t think that it would be just right where I wanted.
When she was done slicing and packaging the meat, the entire package was disgusting. The meat was put into the bag messy as all hell and the bigger problem was the thickness of the meat. The thickness was like a slice of bread. It was absolutely disgusting and I was pissed off because a number 2 should not be the thickest cut, but the second thinnest piece.
I was pissed, but not shocked because I was at Wal-Mart and that should be expected. I know this won’t be the last time I shop at Wal-Mart because I tend to compare prices and find the lower price at Wal-Mart. I just can’t get over how Wal-Mart just let all the little things that makes customers pissed off go. I don’t understand why the company can’t see that customers are not happy with shopping, but it all makes sense because they only care about money.
