I agree 100%. What incentive is that to stay on your job. He should be payed more just for the fact he starts at 0400. His first job, he is putting out resumes and applying for other jobs.

8 years ago we chided Wal Mart for this move to self checkout, dozens of patrons would not even consider it.
they added 4 more self check outs last year,
because of customer demand.
as long as they provide assistance , I use it 50% of the time

Or go to the ones I went to when I lived in UA....they would whip out the abacus.......god only knows if they cheated me, I had not used one since kindergarten in '79.
When my wife complains I ask here if she would rather the abacus.....then I duck

Need a couple padded envelopes so to WallyWorld I ventured at 7am. Cost was under $2. The only open registers were at the other end of the store and I simply didn't want to hobble that distance with my cane. So I asked the clerk who was hovering around the area I was in to show me how to use the self check out. Scan, insert a couple greenbacks, get change and receipt. Pretty painless. And again, this was my first ever self checkout anywhere. Always avoided them as I saw too many customers having issues in the past and requiring a clerk to straighten things out.

At our Sam's the food court is self service - you order at a kiosk and then pick it up at the counter.
I would like to make a suggestion to my local Walmart. They should put a S&W Model 29 with an eight inch barrel mounted on a chain hanging at each self check register. Customers would then not have to yell for help when the scanner craps out, or it hollers, "unexpected item in bagging area.
They would just take the revolver in hand an permanently retire that scanner/ Sound like a good idea?

I had maybe fifteen items in my cart. The self-service scanner thingy announced "unexpected item in the bagging area" for each of the first three items, requiring a clerk to come over and clear the error.
The clerk wound up scanning and bagging everything for me, as the "Old Guy" was clearly incompetent.
Full service at the self-service scanner! You can't beat Walmart for customer service.
A mind is a terrible thing.

about too much
I use it ALL THE TIME. The less time I can spend in Walmart, the better. I can look up items and scan like a possessed Mofo!
Get in, get out get on with my life.

Or the stampede of customers loading up in preparation for the coming storm!!
I was at COSTCO yesterday and every lane was active, literally 100s of people waiting to checkout, checkers were doing a pretty good job, too.
What I noticed was that more than half the people in line to check out had enough stuff in multiple carts to provision an infantry platoon for a freaking week! One guy had 14 gallons of milk among a shit load of other perishables. I had to wonder what he was going to do if the storm actually got here and knocked out power for days.
I consistently use self checkout at wally world. But I usually only have a limited number of items. Even so, I would use self-checkout rather than try to deal with a non-English speaking cashier.

I remember a while back there was and idea that the stores were going to put RFID tags on all the items, you then just roll your full cart past a scanner, which would total your order and charge your card.
Whatever happened with that idea?
If you avoid produce and especially alcohol it goes fairly well. But good luck getting someone to OK that bottle of wine.

When I go to Wal-Mart, I always look for the sexiest cashier. In other words, I always use self checkout.
