Why the heck does walmart hire non english speaking employees? Went to walmart in Uvalde Texas and asked the girl in the pet department where I could find puppy wormer.

she doesn't say a word just looks at me with a blank stare then she spins on her heels and walks away. I started to follow her until I realized she was heading out of the department I was shopping in and crossing the clothing dept. how can a person get customer service from someone who doesn't even speak english?

What the heck are ya thinkin Walmart??? Some of us still speak English in the USA.

Monetary Loss: $10.

"non english speaking employees" Because they can't find home grown Yankees of any race to work for this chump change? It's that simple.

They need to fill the place with bodies doing something less you'll be here whining about no one working at the stores. Your plastic patriotism is amusing at best. You're shopping at a place that has driven out all sorts of local businesses and are actively participating in the downfall of manufacturing jobs in the the good ole "USA" to save a dollar while buying imported crap.

Yet you whine about something as trivial as this. Next time waddle or hover round to a more expensive specialty store to get your stuff.

I went into a Walmart Market Place (Grocery Store) and asked a Walmart employee where to find donuts. She said "No speak English".

Same thing happened to me in Walmart in Kissimmee FL just an hour ago. I asked for shampoo.

Clueless look with some Spanish utterances. She didn't attempt to understand or help. What's the deal here Walmart?

I've instructed my property manager not to supply my vacation homes from Walmart. Lost business over $4k per year.

Walmart has shoppers of many nationalities. If someone from Vietnam comes in should the worker be required to speak that language, or Chinese or say French?

English is the common language of the US and yes still for Texas. All other immigrants seem to have no problem learning English and it's pompous and disingenuous for Mexican immigrants to come and imply they don't need to learn English.

Walmart is a company of many faces. I'm sure that store has many Spanish speaking people coming in to shop. Walmart is doing a great job.

Do you mean "learn Spanish"? I think you should learn English first.

I think it's great that Walmart is offering jobs to people that would otherwise have a very difficult time finding employment. We all need to be patient in working together.
