I could not get help in the store a few times.

I went in the other day and needed to know where something was and the guy did not speak English. I was then forced to go find someone else to help me. Then I needed help with buying a cake at the bakery and the woman could not speak English to help me. Today I went and needed help finding Pita bread and she looked at me like I was stupid and lifted up her shoulders. I said you should not be working here if you can't help me. Another person heard man took me to find my item. A customer at that. While so many people living coming on hard times can't get a dam job. I am going to get the email of the top man in charge and send him a nice email. Customer service is part of working in a supermarket. I can only imagine the amount of people who speak English that were passed up for that job because of the pay rate. Disgrace.

i would rather place blame at the person who hired them, not the non-english speaking employee.

That employee has to share the blame for applying there to begin with.

@sharon6345 - i agree that the person working there should have a basic comprehension of the english language and ability to speak it. i live near the mexican border and people in retail are encouraged/required to know both langauges. it makes for better business and a low loss of potential business, which is why i would blame the person who did the hiring.

It is necessary to know the language of the country you are living in.

That is so true. If they can't speak the language they should not be allowed to work out where people are who might have a question. It is a disgrace.

if a job entails communicating with customers, visitors, etc, they should put someone who can. otherwise, assign them elsewhere. as a business owner, wouldn't they want to maximize the salary they pay people they hire? at this rate, customers will either decrease visits or send them complaints.
