Oh, I think they are totally interested in making money....AT THE TOP. The employees you see have a manager problem, they aren't held accountable for what they do.

At my Walmart, which has been one of the top sellers in the Walmart family for many years is also seeing some problems. As far as employees, you get what you pay for......I think they will have to learn that if you want quality employees you will have to pay for them......You do that by getting rid of stores that are just a drain on your bottom line and take that money and invest it in hiring top quality for your stores that are doing well. We will see if they learn that....
