    Default No more Wal-Mart Greeters

    I heard that Wal-Mart is doing away with Wal-Mart greeters. What is the this world coming to? That sure blew one of my options after retirement.

    Reminds me of the Jeff Dunham skit where Walter was hired as a Walmart greeter. Hi, welcome to Wal Mart - get your **** and get out

    I read somewhere that Walmart greeters were not only there to greet people, but also to spot potential shoplifters and alert security. I will try to find the article, it was pretty interesting.

    I heard about that, because I remember me and my dad laughing hysterically at the thought of a 90 year old trying to stop somebody.

    I don't think they were intended to stop anyone - if they noticed someone suspicious, they just alerted security so they tracked them from above.

    Still, being about 90 years old, we're not talking exactly mentally sharp either, so I doubt they pick up on subtle signs of suspicious activity......aside from the obvious signs.
