Maybe we're just scratching our heads over the idea that you are on a video game deals website spouting life advice to Walmart employees.  

If you know how to make their lives better, then go out and do it...don't post about it here.  You only have a limited time to fix other people's lives so go out there and do it instead of just talking about it.

 

The last twenty posts in this thread have people calling Walmart employees thieves, liars, idiots, and incompetents.  Someone is threatening physical violence against the receipt checkers/greeters.  This thread is starting to read like a white supremacist's rant...just swap out whatever minority with "Walmart employees".

Sorry if it's true that Walmart employees lied to me  :roll:

When I went in to look for the Samsung Evo card, they claimed that they never sold Samsung cards.  Would have been nice for my GPD XD.

I stopped by a store in Asheville, NC a year ago that had blocked the lower shelf.  Only store I've seen do that in the game section.  All of them here have done that in the laptop section.

It's probably where they hold extra stock. I remember that's where the PSTVs were a few years ago, back when Wal-Mart carried them.

Walmart does not really pay bad. It starts at 11 an hour and you get a discount card after 90 days. I am working there as i am starting college but i dont get how people have a bad experience with one person and blame it on walmart. Everyone has a bad day. And a lot of time associates are hounded for no reason as it is. And typically you are only trained in one area unless you request to get move.I understand the employees not every being in electronics when need because that gets on my nerves as well.

Thank you for the info. I snagged the WiFI garage door opener for $35, a 3TB Seagate drive for $25, the 2x16 Flash Drives for $5, two of the Razer Black Widow keyboards for $11 each, and the Corsair Glaive mouse for $7. 
 
As for games:
Minecraft Story Mode Complete - XBox One - $7
Need for Speed - Xbox One - $5
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 - PS4 - $9
all of which are worth a couple dollars more at Gamestop right now with the +$5 deal

Sorry for digging up an old post but I was quite a bit behind on the thread. Do you have any info about the garage door opener? I don't see anything with a quick search in the thread.  TIA

It'll take a hour just to find a Walmart employee that works in the electronic section that'll willing to service you.

THIS, times 1000. Seems 8 times out of 10, the Electronics section is completely deserted at any Walmart I go to...even during peak shopping hours. Most of the time, I have to go to the front of the store and very nicely ask that they get someone to Electronics to help me. If I ask other employees in the vicinity of Electronics, they usually just put their hands up...."not my area man". I now just expect it will be a ghost town back there. Then, when I ask them to get something out from behind the locked glass doors, they look at me like I've asked them to balance the budget. My favorite quote from an employee when I asked if they had any PS4 PRO's in the back: "Dude, I don't even know anything about that". That was a coupla weeks back.

 

There are good people at Walmart for sure, but by and large, let's just say it's not often a "pleasant" experience in there.

#NotAllWalmartEmployees

 

To the poster above who said not to blame Walmart itself, I don't know what else to tell you, but I've had enough experiences in just the past few weeks of them straight up lying to me out of convenience.  I've had a handful of good experiences too when they were unloading all those $3 games but they were the exception, not the rule.  I highly doubt the issues I have had are a conspiracy of Walmart employee laziness, it's clearly a corporate culture problem that Walmart has no interest remedying.  Who knows, I'm no MBA, it may not be in their interests to fix the problem, but I'm still going to make fun of the employees and definitely the company itself because I'm sure both any sales floor employee or corporate drone who sees these posts as a slight to them has thick enough skin to take the L on this issue.

 

And despite the fact that receipt checkers should absolutely be blown off in all circumstances you probably shouldn't assault them even if they touch you LMAO just walk away with your paid goods like a normal human being.  Then again Walmart just may be dumb enough to not have a no-chase policy.

It's some "My life as 100-game real working arcade game with working joystick" it's pink and in the girls section only. I saw one a few months back, I wouldn't mind one for the kids and to try out if it goes on sale.

Yeah but why hide your merchandise?? The big caged section behind the checkouts in electronics was also all blocked so you couldn't see anything. The girl said they had a couple of recent issues of theft, pretty extreme if you ask me.  I actually had the girl open every cabinet so I could look through them all. There were a ton of games but all I came away with was a 3DS Sonic Boom Fire & Ice for $5

Walmart may be the only place they can buy stuff in their area or is the only one selling an item.  I only go there for toilet cleaner myself since none of the convenience or grocery stores in my area sell any.

This is $39.97 at all Walmarts as far as the eye can see (near me).

It's $20 at a Walmart in my area.

You don't want that. Unless you're a big fan of cheap Famiclones, anyway.

In my experience, brick-and-mortar Walmart stores keep copies of older games longer than the brick-and-mortar Best Buy and Target stores.  They also tend to stock more copies.  So, there's more of a chance of finding certain games there and on clearance if you wait long enough.

Does ammo ever go on clearance?  I'm stocking up prior to the July 1st Cali deadline & Walmart has the best pricing given most online sellers won't ship their best sales/bulk ammo to Cali now.

I’m sure Cabela’s, Academy, and Sportsman’s will have Fourth of July sales before that date. Its probably best to leave California if you can. They’re making it difficult to be a gun owner there
