lol I always get the "If we have it, it would be on the floor"

I hear "I'm on break", then they turn around and start stocking the shelf again

I've had some crappy employees there, I am not saying they don't fill their slots with plenty of bottom feeding idiots, but man some of our ahem, less than nice members get a bit nasty when they don't get their way

I was in Walmart 2 weeks ago at around 11pm. I needed the game cage opened. Electronics closes at some stores but managers will have keys to open those cages though some lazy employees repeat that they are closed and / or the person with the keys is gone (they can not take those keys home with them).

Anyways, asked a girl at 10:55pm if someone had keys to open the cage. Girl laughed at me, said electronics is closed and that she is about to clock out. Before I could say anything else, she walks away.

Now that's an extreme that barely happens but Fuck that chick. I did end up getting an employee who got a manager who opened the cage and I got my items. I love when Walmart is good but when it's bad, it's the worst store to shop at and it's because of the shitty employees.

I typically shop Walmart during the 7am-10pm range.   In the rare instance I'm in there earlier or later I'm not expecting the best service because there are typically fewer employees that can help.  Plus outside of those hours one side of the store has the doors locked anyway to help deter thieves.   Overall, my experience is usually pretty decent with Walmart.  But then it's usually pretty decent with GameStop, Best Buy,  and other places that other people have issues with.  Maybe it's just people are nicer in the south?

I'm in the south...

 

I find that employees are more helpful in the day time but once it hits 10pm+ in electronics or toys, no one wants to help.

Last time I tried to buy a new game (Ultimate Alliance 3) from Walmart the woman at one store where they clearly hadn't even stocked the game yet (it was Thursday) actually went so far as to say they didn't sell new games at Walmart to avoid even looking it up on her computer. 

 

Basically the convo...

 

Me: "Hi there, sorry to bug you, looking for a game that came out a couple days ago.  Walmart.com shows you have it in stock but I'm not even seen a spot for it in the game shelf, thinking maybe for some reason it hasn't been put out yet? Anyway, hoping you could just verify for me." 
Her: "What game?"
Me: "Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for Swtich." 

Her: "Never heard of it, but I've been gone all week." 

Me: "OK... so can you look it up?"
Her: "Oh, if it's not there we don't have it."
Me: "OK, and I suspect you may not but seems odd you don't even have a space for it" 

Her: "Oh, well you said it came out this week? We don't sell new games." 

Me: "You're telling me that Walmart, the largest game retailer in the country, doesn't sell new release games..."

Her: "Yep." 

Me: "You have an advertisement for this game at the front door."
Her: "Oh, they do that all the time." 
Me: "You advertise new games on release week but don't sell new releases all the time?" 
Her: "Yep." 
Me: "So you're not even going to bother typing the name into the system to check if you have it or not?"
Her: "If we had it I'd know." 

Me: "You just said you haven't been here all week"
Her: "We don't have it." 

 

Me walking away, "Wow, seriously?" 
Some random employee walking by who heard the convo, "That lazy ass..." 


Most employees are fine but this one really blew me away.

Stories like that remind of me of when they first started the game trade in program. I tried multiple times to trade in games and was either told they didn't take trade ins (in store signs saying they did) or didn't want to be bothered with them and said they didn't know how to process them and come back the next day. At least they took trade ins online so I just gave up and shipped all the trade ins instead.

Today I noticed the local store, the one a few miles away, just lowered all their in stock Labo kits to $9 this morning. After some debate I decided to pick up one of each (Variety, Robot and Vehicle kits).  There is always the chance these show up in a place like Five Below, or get another clearance cut, but they are also Nintendo published so decided to just get them now.

I have an insider at Wal-Mart where I live. It seems the Final Fight arcade1up that was the display floor model has been moved to the back of the store warehouse. Soon I will find out its fate and hopefully it goes up for sale so I can buy it. Fingers crossed X_X

A somewhat nearby store went in the back and got me the Robot and Variety for $9 each. Gotta find that third one now.

A store I went to yesterday evening had quite a few for $5(Galaga, Pac-man, Ms Pac-man, Burgertime, Dig Dug). Only one I purchased was Ms Pac-man. They also had a bunch of Arcade1up stuff marked down(Street Fighter 2 cab $74, Rampage cab $74, Golden Tee $99, risers $11). I picked up the SF2 cab. The GT cab and risers were gone before I could get there though. I also found the Pac-man ghost light-up wall signs for $4.

Found numerous copies of God of War (2018) in the clearance section at my local Walmart. Had to scan on one of those machines just to be sure. Rang up at $19.94 or something like that. Couldn't believe it. Grabbed a copy since there were only 5 or 6 left.

I had SF2 pop up for $75 at a Walmart 45 minutes away from me. Said there were 2-3 IN STOCK! I took the chance and drove out. "We don't know what that is... Oh, well we don't have anymore... Oh that floor model isn't for sale." Didn't even bother checking inventory or offer to sell me the shite floor model (still ran fine, cosmetically beat up.) I wasted an hour and a half on one of my busier days to run into a completely incompetent employee who I have a feeling knew about the price...

It got an official price drop to $19.99 some time ago.
