When you go to a store can you tell if people hate their job?
Do you feel like you are bothering them?
Can you tell when others dislike eachother?

Most important, tell me how it feels!!

  • It feels like I should go shopping elsewhere. I had a doctor and nurse fighting over me (not about me but over my body!) during surgery. They hated each other. I was pregnant and couldn't be given a general. Don't you know I wanted to find a new surgical team that day! It was horrible!!!!

  • Yes, you can usually tell.
    I remember being in line and a manager was chastising a cashier...she was so rude and totally belittling. I thought it was inappropriate and it made me feel very uncomfortable.

  • Sometimes. On Valentine's Day our waitress was fired. I felt horrible. Apparently it was coming. But I felt horrible. But at the same time, pissed cause our kids food didn't come out until we were ready to go, and we were still charged.

  • i guess ive never noticed certain employees not getting along...
    but i can tell if they really care or not, if they are just doing their time and want to do as little as possible.
    if they dont want to help i get pissed cuz it like "seriously? you are getting PAID when so many people who need and want jobs dont have them and people like YOU do."

  • Yes, it's generally obvious when they hate their job. They have terrible service. I hate it. It's also obvious and annoying when they're either arguing or chatting with one another when they're supposed to be working, for example, being the damn cashier. I do complain to management. They can chat on breaks or when there isn't a line of people waiting to check out.

    It doesn't make me uncomfortable. I find it highly annoying.
