Do you like the self checkout at Walmart?

I do not like the self checkout at Walmart. My husband insists on using him every time I go with him and without fail something goes wrong and we have to have a person come over and fix the problem. I prefer the old fashioned go to the cashier. What do you think?

I think that they are a a pain, but I will use them when there are long lines and noy many people are using the self check out. I hate how they have the sensors in the bagging area set up. If you move something around it screws up the whole thing. Or if you have something that hardly weighs anything like a greeting card, it thinks you haven't put it in the bagging area. You can select skip bagging, but if you do that more that 3 times someone has to come to the register and help. Self check out definitely has a lot of room for improvement and seems to be more of an aggravation than anything else. Shopping at Walmart where I live is a stressful experience already without the aggravating self check out. They hire the rudest and laziest people at one location near my house. I never go there anymore. I only get to go to Walmart if I drive 30 minutes to the next town. The self checkout there is still annoying, but the employees there are polite and helpful.

I know what you mean. The Walmart that is close to our house the employees are so rude. I mean I understand their wages are bad but I still don't think I could treat people that way. Some of them are nice though don't get me wrong but as far as customer service I would say overall it has been a bad experience there.

I use the self-checkout at the grocery store where I shop. I like it because the lines tend to be shorter. Whenever I have a problem, help is almost always quick to arrive.
