Log in to Reply I prefer it because I don’t have to interact with any of the staff Log in to Reply It’s superior Log in to Reply I prefer the person at the checkout. Self checkout rarely saves me time. Or maybe the machines in my area aren’t very good. Log in to Reply Really fast and convinient ! Don’t have to talk to people.Only benefits Log in to Reply Helps sometimes. But, sometimes, I feel I have too many to hold up a self-checkout so, I go through a cashier. Those people with 273 items in a self-checkout annoy them hell outta me. Log in to Reply I like it, specially when in a country whose language I don’t speak. Self checkouts usually have a few language options. Log in to Reply how can u be against it? Log in to Reply I like it, it saves me time Log in to Reply Love it! Log in to Reply Super annoying but its quick. Log in to Reply As a former cashier and self checkout attendant, most of the issues are due to people trying to go too fast and being impatient. It helps us get 10 times as many customers out of the store at the same time, it’s a life saver for stores when there’s only one cashier Log in to Reply Necessary for people on the go getting a few things. If you’re using self check out with a full cart, you’re a piece of shit or its obvious you’re stealing stuff which i guess goes back to being a piece of shit Log in to Reply i hate self-checkout it’s complicated and makes annoying sounds Log in to Reply I don’t go to stores that are self checkout only. Log in to Reply Proven to be slower than the average cashier. Only good for the stores to save on wages and sick leave. If they were actually faster, I wouldn’t mind. They reduced the number of cashier to make it seem like going at the self checkout is faster than waiting in line, which sometimes it is, but it’s because of the reduced staff. I’m all for technological improvement for the customer, but it’s not. Log in to Reply do a flip Log in to Reply I’ve stood in line waiting wornan operator checkout. You know the meme, I don’t work here? That. “”I don’t work here, call some.mote staff please.” Large trolley full. Log in to Reply I prefer self check out for when I’m only getting a handful of items but I loathe the attendant watching like a hawk as if everyone there is waiting to pocket something. I realize they’re there to watch and help but please leave me the fuck alone unless I ask for help. If it takes me fifteen seconds to figure out how to weigh my cauliflower then let me be. Log in to Reply Love the damn thing Log in to Reply I love it because there’s never a wait Log in to Reply If stores don’t have it I don’t go. Log in to Reply Doesnt everyone look in the mirror sometimes? Log in to Reply If I have a couple bags of groceries I prefer it. If I have a cart full, I’ll skip it Log in to Reply I’ve never used it. Except sort of once, when the attendant pulled me out if the cashier line and did the self checkout for me. Log in to Reply It would be better if Walmart wouldn’t insist on having 15 self checkout tills but only three open at any given time Log in to Reply There should be a strict age limit Log in to Reply Every time I use it, it always errors out and needs to wait for an attendant to come and reset it Rather just avoid eye contact and say ‘hi, paper, credit’ to the actual cashiers Log in to Reply Thousands of people touching those machines, who knows what nastiness is on their hands. Not to mention the coughers and sneezers… And of course less people have jobs. Maybe they should hire people to clean the machines between customers. Log in to Reply someone i know said it used to be great until they installed the newer overhead camera system that knows when you don’t scan Log in to Reply I hate it. I went before thanksgiving and there was one person at self checkout and so many people were buying alcohol so you had to keep waiting on her to be done to help the next person and then the next. Then you’ll have an older person not knowing what to do. Some don’t take cash or give cash back. Don’t get me started on the unexpected item in the bagging area. Log in to Reply I would love it if I was single or a couple, but now that I’m a sahm of 3 kids and purchase a week’s worth of groceries at once, it’s ridiculous and I hate it. I buy too much at once not to make it feel like a huge hassle. Log in to Reply Love them. Quick and convenient. No waiting in line, no having to talk to a single person. I can scan 2-3x faster than a regular cashier. We have to bag our own stuff even if a cashier scans it anyway where I am, so I may as well just do the scanning too. Log in to Reply I love it. I don’t want to talk to anyone most of the time when I’m shopping and would prefer to skip the chit chat with a cashier. Literally only go through regular checkout if I have an item that isn’t allowed through self checkout. Log in to Reply my favorite thing invented Log in to Reply Free stuff! Log in to Reply I actually prefer self checkout, sure it’s annoying having to go ask them for a bag but I find it a lot faster Log in to Reply As long as it is working I’ve no problem with it. Log in to Reply Love it. Use it always. No dumb little turd up selling me Bounty the quicker picker upper!! Log in to Reply If I can’t steal at least one item I won’t use it. I also refuse to stop for the person looking at receipts. If you don’t trust me open up more manned check outs. Log in to Reply I prefer the human cashier. All of the self checkout machines that I have used so far have atrocious user interfaces that are inconsistent and non-intuitive. If the store would give me a discount, then maybe it would be worth my time to learn all of the glitches and the work-arounds. Log in to Reply I pay good money for groceries so I make sure I get my money’s worth by making sure someone bags all of my items. Log in to Reply Good if it works, shitty for employment obviously Log in to Reply I don’t like it. I prefer to interact with actual human beings as opposed to buggy machines with three cameras surveilling my shopping trolley. Log in to Reply Taking jobs from people. They are lowering their overhead and still charging the same amount for everything. Log in to Reply I waited for someone to check my groceries, no one came, so I left with my groceries. The point is, I didn’t clock out from work, just to work more on my way home from work. In addition to this, you’re removing a ton of entry level positions from the job market. Log in to Reply could be applicable if you were extremely suffering physically, else I’d tend against it, since I don’t care either way, I could as well live, is my stance.
