Of course this is not every employee, but my point is that the workers at stores like that are not trained on the food. They are shown how to stock shelves and ring on the register.
Actually instructions were included, but the pie is sold fresh and they didn't address cooking it frozen.
As for Costco, there's much I dislike about it, but I think you've sold their meat department short. I'm not a studied expert on it, but from what I can tell, I think their meat department really is quite professional and well trained in what they do.
