Not even so much because they run other companies into the ground.
The "EMPLOYEES"!! Oh. My. God.
The Wal-Mart near me hires the scum of the Earth, I swear.
First of all, there's no Wal-Mart dress code I guess? All they HAVE to wear is a vest, and then it doesn't appear to matter what they wear under that. Guy have their pants hanging down past their ass cheeks, and big girls wearing tight shirts. It looks so unprofessional. And of COURSE since the guys have their pants so low, they do that, "I-have-to-walk-like-this-so-my-pants-do
And can we talk about tattoos and facial piercings?! Every time I have gone in there, my cashier had either a) some shitty looking jail tattoo or b)someone's name tattooed in big tacky cursive letters. Most retail businesses will not let you have any visible tattoos or piercings, but at Wal-Mart you can have BOTH!! I don't think I've ever been rung up by a girl who DIDN'T have a eyebrow piercing (which is tacky and very 2000).
I also hate the way that, aside from the Greeter at the door, NO one ever bothers to say hello or acknowledge me. It's like all the employees are just hanging out together, having personal conversations, usually yelling to someone several feet away.
When you get to the checkout, the cashiers are talking to each other and laughing. When you get in their line, they don't even say HELLO. They ring you up, finish... and stand there. THEY DON'T EVEN TELL YOU YOUR TOTAL, YOU HAVE TO LOOK AROUND FOR THE SCREEN TO SEE HOW MUCH YOU OWE! And then you pay, they hand you your receipt... and continue their conversation with the other employees. I have never been to any other store where you can be rung up with the cashier saying exactly 0 words to you. Not even Hi or Bye.
Unfortunately for me, I HAVE to go there once every two months, because they are the ONLY place around me that sells this one product I use on my face. So while I would like to never go in there again, I do have to spend about $4.50 once in awhile.
Also, the parking lot there is crazy. People drive like idiots, and you can barely even find the entrance to the store because it is blocked by fatasses who park in the fire lane so they don't have to walk all the way in. If there is seriously something wrong with you and you can't walk, then you have a handicapped sticker. Go park over there.
You can't even get out TO the parking lot when it's time to leave, because there's some FUCKING fundraiser out there EVERY TIME I GO.
None of this shit happens at my beloved Target. The store is clean, the parking lot is clean, the employees are courteous and clean.
I'm not asking for the employees to kiss my ass when I go into a store. But for Wal-Mart to not care what kind of impression their employees are making on customers (by not enforcing a dress code or positive attitudes).. why would I spend money there?
