Confessions and rant from someone that works in retail.
I am doing this anon and I wont name the store i work at just know its a huge one.
Backstory.......I have worked for the same store for 12yrs. Overall I love my job. My store is like a big family we don't always like each other but if someone from the outside messes with us its war. My job has been anything from Cashier to Front end manager. I was a manager up until I got married and had my child. Now I manly work at the customer service desk(my fav place to work)
-For the love of all things please take a bath or atleast put on deodrant before you come in.
-If you look sloopy/unkept or you are wearing Pjs I will not and did not take you serious.
-If you always return stuff w/o a receipt damn right I will take your info and give it to our security
-We are happy when you get caught. Usually we all know you and have been watching you for awhile.
-No I don't always believe you got that (item) as a gift. No I will not give you cash back.
-We totally judge our customers. I can tell if you are faking me out or not. If you have foodstamps are have your nails done,have an iphone, all brand name clothes damn right I think you are working the system.
-If you come up and are nice to me and treat me like a human I will do whatever I can to help you. I will break policy for you. If you come up yelling at me the answer will always be NO.
-If you curse at me I would kick you out(when I had the power to do that)
-Just rememeber you are only making a fool out of yourself and as soon as you leave we all laugh at you.
-If you see me out with my family. DoNOT ask me questions about work b/c I will not answer.
-Yes we work at the store but for the love of everything if you see us walking out the door or no name tag on please don't ask us questions.We want to leave our jobs too.
-No I will not take 1 more customer unless you are going to pay my babysitter the extra I now owe.
-My light is off I am not taking anymore people.
-Please wait behind the "please wait here" sign for me to call you.
-If my desk is full of returns for the last customer don't just walk right up and put stuff down
-PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE hang up your cell phone. I don't give a shit about who is cheating on who or anything else about your life
-Don't come up to the customer service desk to check out b/c I look bored. LOL You know that whole back counter and all the returns It needs to be 100% clean before I leave.
-I dont give a shit if you are short on time. Learn to manage your time better.
-If your card gets declined it is not my fault. I do not have anything to do with it. I do think its sad if all your cards get declinded.
-I try and pack you bag nice. If you just through the stuff on the belt that is how it gets bagged.
-I think everyone deserves respect. If you show it to me I will show it to you.
That is all for now I may add more later.
