Big FYI: Don't be an impatient cunt when you gotta wait a whopping minute in the line...

If it's a late night on a day where there's normally not many customers, there won't be more than 2-3 cashiers in most stores. Now what happens is occasionally people come in in groups and it can go from completely empty to a line of 5 people all of a sudden. Customers who are almost done picking their items hang around the area close to the checkout, and if one customers goes to the checkout, the others notice it and follow because they want their place in the line. Domino effect, and bam, there's a big ass line all of a sudden. I can attest to this happening a LOT, and most cashiers will have noticed it.

tl;dr: Customers, chill the **** out if there suddenly is a long line to wait in. It varies a lot, and it's not like we can send in an army of extra cashiers on demand. It's not like you can't just go on your phone and browse *********** facebook or something while waiting like everyone does.

Except everything at my local small business is twice as expensive and I don't make the money to be buying from them plus afford other things because yay for a bad economy and a job that pays minimum wage.

Previous wal-mart employee here (night shift).
Only a number of people are register trained, and it's the CSMs job to call everybody up when the lines get full. Now on night shifts, even on nights that we blow up, we still don't have many register trained people, and even then people like to call in. This is what pisses me off, though:
CSMs won't take charge of a register to help out. They think they're better spent elsewhere. If you go to wal-mart and this **** happens, you find the CSMs, and you tell them to get their ass on a register. They power-trip like ******* crazy and think just because they have the word "manager" in their title, they don't have to do basic work. **** them. You tell those lazy ***** to help out their associates, or you'll call corporate. They will cry like a bitch if you dare to call corporate, because corporate LOVES to rip people a new one.

I blame Unions.

no, Walmart plans it that way so customers will wait in line longer, and be more likely to buy the stuff on the candy racks, especially if they have kids with them.

Maybe my Walmart is different, but when I worked there, unless several people called in, there were usually enough people to keep the lines at bay. If the lines did get out of hand then some members of management would even come help us out.

This **** right ******* here. I get annoyed with this **** everytime I go to stores. It's like "hey, let's just keep barely enough checkout lanes open so that the lines are long, no matter how many people are shopping."

I've only see all the lanes open on black friday.

It's the same thing at my local store. One time, I asked them why. Do you want to know the answer I received?
"Because some people are sick"
User avatar #16 - douthit (01/31/2014) [-]
They have fewer cashiers than they need so customers will wait in line longer, and be more likely to talk themselves into buying the stuff on the candy racks.

Walmart: going through the whole store with a scimitar since black friday

As an unloader at walmart, I can confirm that is the reason.
Fifteen minute break, ten minutes in checkout line.

When I worked at Walmart (as a cashier), they were having trouble keeping cashiers. They had older cashiers who had been on the job for awhile, but they often worked during the day. After about six the number of cashiers dropped down significantly, so there'd usually only be about two people on until closing (midnight.) I'm really wondering how the Super Walmart is going to be since we'll be switching over soon...

Exactly why I never go there.

Every store is guilty of this; enough with the Wal Mart bashing.

They would have to spend more money if more people were working at once.
