I keep seeing stories about self serve checkouts on the news…..some stores are even going to get rid of them. What do you guys think, love or hate them?
I loved them originally, I love the idea of them – but in real life, not so great. Some stores machines seem to have a lot of glitches, where an employee always have to come over. Which is fine, when there is an employee stationed there, not so great when you have to wait or go find someone. You also have to wait for an employee when using coupons. I like it for quick little shops, if I’ve run into Safeway for just a few things I’ll often use self checkout. It’s fast when we’ve run into Home Depot to grab one thing, stuff like that.The last few times we’ve used self-checkout it’s been nothing with problems, things not scanning up well, waiting too long for an employee, the machine locking up or keep screaming at me about not having put my item in the bagging area! 😉 Some items are very light!
What do you guys think? What stores in the city have the best system? Which are the worst? Who should keep them, get rid of them or just get them to start?
