Work Rant

http://www.bestbuysux.org/

lol stumpled on there on accident.. sorta. Seeing how I work at Circuit City.. I was actually looking for a circuit city sucks dedication website. It's funny, best buy and circuit city are pretty much alike. In the morning they get everybody to sit around and listen to our budget for the day... which no one cares about, and why would we? We are a bunch of kids practically who just do our job, hate forcing things onto people, and get paid for doing more things than we were hired to do.

For example, our store manager said, "Our budget is ******* today, and there is a contest where if the store that gets the most solution sales for the next 3 months.. I get a $5000 bonus. So I want you guys to really work hard." So someone asked, "Why do we have to work hard for you to get more money, are we going to get something in return?" He says, "Yeah, you get to keep your job."

I really hate working in retail, it's not so much "I hate working at circuit city" it's retail in general. You'll get the same crap over at Best Buy I am sure. We get stupid customers, stupid managers that live their life on retail business (which I am sure isn't healthy), and we have to push things at people that we really don't want to. Not only that, but we are given training on certain products that are only important to sell with solutions. So when I started working there I was taught on the computer training of phones, cd players, boomboxes, and video game systems. Everything else I had to learn myself from everyone else.

Like phone batteries, you would come in with your old phone battery and ask which one you should get. I would have no clue, and I'm sure no one else knew Luckily I caught on quick, it was just the same battery hookup the other one had.

So of course the day after Thanksgiving Sale and today there were some pretty intense sales. I had the luxury of coming in at 1:30 in the afternoon to 6:30 that evening. Not bad at all for a busy day.

We had customers coming in at 4-5 and complain to me that what they wanted was sold out. Well... no **** it was? We opened the doors at 6 this morning, while you were in bed dreaming of watching your crappy third world country made TV that you would buy, some penny pintching family bought 4 of them at a time!

It stuns me, I hope you guys aren't like this Even though I'm pretty sure you guys aren't.

i was thinking about making a movie about retail. The store name would be some made up of course, Best Buy.. Circuit City.. see a pattern? I'll think up a similar lame name like those and show everyone how it is to work there and how crappy we have it. Then at the middle of the movie, all the associates turn on the customers and the managers.

Yeah.. I've got ideas going

haha welcome to the real world.

i work in a resturant connected to the mall. friday was a uber intense day, and people were even dumber than usual. its usually not that busy in our place, so we can take the order and get the food cooked and served before 5 minutes. but when were packed with a line 100 people deep its taking more than 10 minutes to serve food, which is still faster than any other resturant in our mall or that area. but no, some people just dont understand that we must "cook" the food first. i had one table walk out cause their order of 3 steak sandwiches took too long, and the table before them got their order taken after them and their food before the people who ordered the sandwiches, and didnt realize that it was easier to make 2 salads with no cooking needed than 3 steaks. yeah they tried to complain to my manager but she told them to "get a life, if you want food in 5 minutes mcdonalds is right over there". i made a ****load of tips though, about 130 in 4 hours.
