More and more Retailers are installing Self serve Checkouts, some people say they are great, quicker and easier, less hassle. Others like Unions and staff are saying they are wrong and replacing people on the front line, so less jobs. But with Retailers cutting Back Staff in record numbers, I can see both sides of the Argument, Retailers say with the limited staff out Replacing Stock, helping Customers, cleaning, Etc people will be happier, rather than wasting staff to look after sales of 1 or 2 fiddly little Items. But Customers are saying this is one of the Reasons they are shopping online, Very few Staff around to help and the few staff that are there are kids with no experience. For the Record, I work in Retail (and have done all sorts of Retail jobs for the best part of 20 years) and I personally like the self serve Checkouts, from myself as a Customer it means I can get in and out nice and quick. And from a Retail Employee perspective if I had them in the Store I worked for, it would mean more time putting out Stock and keeping the place clean and tidy instead of wasting the time of a Staff member for every register for every fiddly little sale. Don't get me wrong, I don't have an issue with Customer Service, it's my Job, but as soon as anyone brings up the issue of self serve Checkouts, it seems to bring out very opposing opinions on the Subject.
