    And another point that should be made, when you are buying things at a discount store, you get what you pay for, which includes 'discount treatment' When I buy something from Macy's they do a great job.

    Where is Hector?
    I have noticed that they also try and get as many items into one bag as they possibly can. Having once worked there, I can say that it all depends on the person you get. We weren't told "try and squish as many things as you can in 1 bag" its just common sense I guess. I wouldnt put bleach in with bread, ya know?
    But, I also wash my clothes before I wear them so Im not to pissy if my clothes are bundled into the bag, only that they try and get as many things in 1 bag as they can.

    Exactly, there's just no reason to be so disrespectful of the merchandise. It's just bad customer service! You don't see Nordstrom scrunching, regardless of what the customer intends to do... it's not the store's business to decide that for the customer!

    I wouldn't expect the check-out person who handles Tampax, car parts and clothes in one transaction to take care of the clothes necessarily.

    My rant ...

    That we can never go into a Target and NOT spend $100.

    Well, except Sunday, but that was the first time in a LONG time that's happened.

    Maybe the folks at your Target are just particularly angry.

    Great point, and it is important to know that when you pay more for an item, you should expect a higher level of service. It really is true, 'You get what you pay for." I cannot expect a $7 t-shirt at target to be treated the same way my $68 Lacoste polo from Macy's is.

    I would be pissed if I had to wear a red top and khakis every day, and some employees don't even get a walkie-talkie to play with.

    That's so funny, at my Target, they'll put like 2 things per bag. I always ask them to load the bags up heavier!
    A signature should go here.

    Re: Discount stores - an open rant

    I used to work at Target (that's where I met Kristi ... she was my boss) and I was but a lowly cart-pusher.

    Well, until some sexy front-lanes manager kept calling me in for Guest services.

    Anyway, another story for another time.

    My point was ... I actually didn't mind working retail (not just because of the sexy manager). A job is what you make of it.

    But I agree with max on this one ... you can't expect the same service at Nordstrom and Target. It's just not in the cards.

    Migo, the lies need to stop. Everyone here knows about your little 'joke' AKA flaming bags of pooh.... Jerk. Remember how your prank on Mr. Anderson turned out?

    Re: Discount stores - an open rant

    It could be too, that they have to complete every transaction in under a time limit. Here in Phx. some grocery stores MUST complete a transaction in under a minute or they lose pay. It was weird the first time I saw it, the clerk was lining up all my stuff on the belt, prior to starting to scan. I first I just thought she had OCD, but then she explained.

    What's starting to irritate me is places not giving you the clothes hangars anymore.
