Seems all I'm getting responses from in my desperate job search is retail :( Damn it all. Scored a second interview today ASM for a cosmetics store, Lush, never been there. Odd set up for it - I'm to arrive in dress code and spend the interview ...

One of my side hustles is pet visiting. Been with the company for 3 years. This morning at 7am I got to my second visit and for the life of me couldn’t get the door to open! Electronic key card idiot thingy. I called service control. Eventually ...

Lost my main job today with no warning. Retail has been very bad for me. 30 years of it. Always been brutal, always unpredictable. Seems I'm at the end of the line.

Interesting chain of events...I was told I would be paid xx for my current job. That didn't happen. I assumed it was the usual fuckery; they also said health coverage at 30. It was 90. In a weak moment I answered another manager's question as to ...

Four calls to HR in four weeks... Will today's call finally take my son off my health insurance? Will I be refunded? Stand by for the continuing fuckery.

Sixth day in a row at my FT job. My lower back and hip are on fire and trying to seize up on me. I log 12 miles plus per shift. Being punished for missing a night shift - I'm scheduled for EVERY one now. 4-1230am I'd better find some reasons to ...

Ah! Winter. When corporate lets you close the store only after the roads are closed.

Kvetch alert! I called out sick for the first time on my job Monday, missed a 4-1230am shift. Had a savage vomiting bug - thanks to visiting with my friend and godson... I don't get sick pay yet - 6 month wait! Unheard of in my experience. Asked ...

Wow, just found this group! I have about 50 years of retail experience that has given me a great cross section view of people, at least in Missouri and now Arizona, but I guess most observations would apply elsewhere. Like how parents can be ...

What music do you/must you work to? It's almost always for the shoppers' benefit, not yours. At my hippie-ish food coop, each day's broken into 3.5-hour shifts, and the music's whatever the then-current manager wants to play: folk/oldies, R&B, ...

Anyone else have the problem of constantly being pressured to get into management? I work for a large grocery store chain and they're constantly pushing for managers in my department which is Floral. It sounds like a good deal, but it's one person in...

Ahhhhhhh! It's a good thing that I idly checked my scheduling app just now. I thought I was scheduled for 12:30-8 today...nope! 1:30-10! Thing is - I have the time written in 2 books and a pic of the schedule on my phone! When this changed? No one ...

Working in a major retailer in a major city and tourist area is emotionally draining for me. Every day it's non-stop dealing with people who don't speak the language, abusive locals, and outrageous amounts of theft. A week ago a customer complained ...

I've been away from the site for months, so Christmastime seemed perfect for coming back. When I ran an atheist group I'd always promote solstice stuff, saying how we heretics still enjoyed feasting and shopping. But privately, I always waited for...

By the skin of my teeth... My store is trashed. I was cussed at, yelled at, and disrespected in all manner of ways. We made the goddamn sales plan :)

Saturday the shopping public was mostly pleasant. Sunday far less pleasant. Today? I'll have to summon all of my powers to make people smile. Tired just thinking about it! Somehow got stuck at customer service often during the weekend...folks ...

Just got off the phone with an ASM from work. The one who refused to switch a shift with me so I could attend my godson's first birthday... He's sick, called out yesterday - which is a HUGE no no at this time of year. Asked me to switch Saturday ...

I'm just here for the posts. Ok that's not true - I've done Retail work - I worked in a Rexall during the Holidays (Think of an early CVS) - on the cosmetics and perfume counter - and gift wrapping one year when I was on college break. It was ...
