    Walmart has 40 different types of managers. Imagine trying to explain your position to a guest. Id be like I want the highest person who makes the most money to solve my problem.

    Remember with Uber you can work when you want and how long you want. Make your own schedule, get your side hustle on.

    Depending on where you live, Uber’s not all it’s cracked up to be. They really don’t pay well. You’d have better luck with Lyft who is a lot more friendly.

    Doesn't Uber require vehicles to be stylish.

    I believe the rule of thumb is the vehicle should be newer than 2002 but if you truly want to make it your job it would be better to have a newer vehicle to stand a lot of miles

    Neither is sustainable. Even when you make money you have to pay for gas, Rideshare insurance, maintenance and you put an awful lot of miles on your car which is depreciation

    So when is the official date for the Walmart cashier position to be phased out. I know some stores around my area are already all SCO.

    Uber Eats is less stringent on the car and you don't have to talk to a passenger!! :)

    RhettB I've forgotten more than many young ETLs know.

    Target thins out job levels too. I'm not going to demonize Walmart for doing it when we do it as well. Do any stores still have comp-shop TM's? Most stores combined HL and SL ETL a few years ago.

    It's not even a lie...I went to Walmart on the Saturday night before Super Bowl; it was about 8pm? Lots of people in Market; lines down the main aisle. ONE CASHIER. They had like 20 SCO's, though. They'd converted a lot of regular aisle registers into SCO and people were checking themselves out.

    I’m not too worried since I still have my old position to fall back into.

    Just the people who don’t have that safety net is what bothers me. :|
