  • I would say that it's so not worth it. If you're leaving work crying there's definitely something wrong. Retail work is a dime a dozen. Find another place to work.

  • Oh wow. I was getting ready to come and ask a question myself about this. The owner boss was encouraging a hostile work environment, by his own actions. Yelling and cursing at his target of the day. Thursday was my turn to be target du jour He came up behind me and was literally jabbing me in the back and yelling at me. No reason, just to do it. I held my ground and told him not to touch me. Well, he did it again. I finished up and left. Although, things will be tight until I secure another job. I did what my beliefs and self worth told me to do.

  • You have rights as an employee...go to your Human Resource Department (at corporate head quarters if you must) and file a complaint against people like this if they do not stop at your asking. Anger/hostility displayed in the workplace is unprofessional and unnecessary.

  • Start applying for jobs now. You can easily find retail work with the holidays coming up. When you know you have a job, then quit this one. That way the hubby won't be mad and you can get out of there!
