ran into a guy that was a year ahead of me in high school working as a produce clerk, at first I felt happiness knowing his life was such shit. Then I slowly started to feel sorry for him, I didn't expect that.
>>26396609 Replace the fruit and vegies, clean the area, sometimes you trim the corn, sometimes you work at 12:00 am to dismantle everything on the wetrack so you can clean it all in the back, and then put it back together before the store opens. Sometimes you come in at 4am to start trimming the lettuces and stuff like that so they look nice.
>tfw night clerk at a convenience store >go in and settle into my nook behind the counter >come home and settle into my nook at the computer I get a free drink every shift, too. Usually just grab a Pepsi and bring it home to drink there. When we used to get Pepsi Throwback they would let me take pretty much all of it home because nobody bought it.
That's horrible advice. You should line up another job first, every single employer will see your unemployed status as a liability. Apply to as many other places as you can, and when/if you get a better job elsewhere, tell your new employer you've already given two weeks notice to your immediate supervisor and they've committed to being flexible.
Of course, you never gave your previous employer two week notice because: >Your new employer won't ask/will never find out >It's retail, nobody gives a fuck. People literally no-show at least once a week.
You need a retail job as a stepping stone though, specially if you don't have a degree/training to do anything else
>>26400640 I work in the deli at a grocery store too, it can get really busy especially when my dumb coworkers are being lazy or leave every 20 minutes. But i get to eat as much cheese and lunchmeat as i want, so that's pretty nice
My brother and I were smoking pot the other day and we got to talking about how we would feel if our respective future sons really, really wanted to be grocery store cashiers when they grew up. Like they were always asking for grocery store playsets for Christmas and arranging all the food in the pantry to be label-out, wearing a little apron and tidying up the kitchen and shit. Always super excited to go to the grocery store and chat up the clerks.
We reached the conclusion that we'd just assume that they were also gay with no other evidence, but we'd actually both prefer if they were just gay instead.
> produce clerk for 16 hours of my life to a guy who couldn't speak english that well despite his being in country for years, to find out that all the job involved was literally equal to saying "shuffle the deck of cards" the definition of tedious busy-work
> worked at a thrift store for a few weeks handling donated clothes, risking contracting fungal infections, fleas, or other parasites by trashy people who doesn't know what a washing machine is literally found a shit-encrusted underwear
> attempted to get a warehouse job and failed powered pallet jack training because 2weak2handle the piece of shit streering stick (yes a "stick" as in "not a wheel") since it didn't have power steering what-so-ever why did the trainer think it was a good idea to shove all SIX of us newbies onto metric-ton shitboxes with chipped paint in a small arena and have us drive in circles in close proximity? it's been a year and i still feel like shit over this, i could've hurt the guy seriously.
> tear down and rebuild shelves in a store, but the storage area had poor upkeep of cleaning/organization, and often the fire exits were blocked by carts filled with dividers and metal shelves 9/10 it's an ok job, i'm fine with this. i'm ok with the events currently unfolding
>>26401953 >>26400640 Deli and the grocery departments are always the worst experiences. When I see people who've done it for years I want to shake them and ask them why are they are doing this to themselves.
>>26400298 >front end manager NEVER scheduling worth a shit Boy do I know this feel >Think I have off one day >don't go to bed until 6 am >get a call at 10pm saying I'm supposed to be there from 10 to 5:30 >they changed the schedule in the front end but didn't change it in the meat department where I also work Shittiest day ever
>manage our town's Dollar Store >everybody shopping there is mexican >thankfully they're all very humble and calm when shopping >3 years of spanish back in high school helped a little bit when they ask me questions >gradually started to relearn the language from experience >somehow im 100% fluent now >i even get invited to quinceaneras because they all like me
>tfw you are the only competent courtesy clerk at your local sprouts >basically a slave >make minimum wage and have to do whatever the fuck anyone else in the store asks you to do >have to pretend to be happy
Easily the worst possible grocery job. I was smarter than anyone else in the damn store but because I had no work experience and I was 20 years old I was forced to do slave-tier work. Eventually I asked them to reduce my hours (I was working 40 hours a week) and then by the end I spent all my time in the bathroom shitposting. That job more than anything motivated me to go back to school and stop being a fuckup and actually try.
Granted my wage puts me pretty much in the median when it comes to income. Oh we are also unionized as well, so while my hours are guaranteed, I have no option for any over time.
its def not easy work, ive seen way too people come and go. Which I guess is sad, because I know their work ethic won't change, if you can't take this job seriously you are likely to fuck around at your other job too.
>>26403189 I feel sorry for you lad. dollar general is a shit show. Like working for kroger but ten times worse shit show. Usually just a single person scheduled a shift. In charge of being a cashier, janitor, stocker, and unloader.
>>26403521 its a numbers game. You just have to keep applying. I remember some dude graphed how many resumes he sent and job interviews he got. in the end his sucess rate was 2% meaning he sent out ~50 resumes (and had like 5-10 interviews) before he got a job offer.
>>26403629 no thanks, you can stay there as a cock meat sandwhich between canada and mexico
>frozen manager >hands and feet always cold no matter how many layers I put on >always dressed like a blizzard is coming >work hard to keep numbers up because I only get one other guy to help and he would rather flirt on his shift >still get treated like shit because my department makes the least amount of money in the store
Ontop of the gutted hours and shit pay, I just want a sweet release from this nightmare. I wish I was a simple shelf stocker again.
>work at furniture store >tfw 20 and don't even have my own house >People ask me for furniture advice like I know half a shit about interior decorating I'm as mediocre as it gets and the only reason they keep me is to build heavy stuff because I couldn't sell a couch to a dead man.
>>26403842 This. I'm working retail now but plan on going to uni in the fall and studying to become a teacher so I can protect robots and punish chads and stacies. I'll do what our teachers never did for us.
>>26402662 i really don't think the deli is that bad. my manager barely manages us and the store is usually pretty quiet. I also usually close by myself, and once i get everything done i can relax for an hour and eat the left over fried chicken and mac and cheese
>>26403869 if you show the managers that you are persistent enough you might get hired. At my work we have a huge stack of resumes/application forms. so thats where your resume goes to, unless you have some quality that stands out your chances are very slim to get picked out of that pile.
>>26403967 Ah ok so i should just reapply to the same places is what you're saying?
i cant get any experience if nobody hires so theres nothing for me that stands out other than attending uni and having a little bit of volunterr experience. Im only 18 idk why they need all these things for an entry level job.
fuck you manager Mike and fuck Kmart !!! the best thing I've done was quit and as soon as I did the place is closing in November lol all that micro management condescending fucking personality is paying you and your piece of shit friends/mgmt crew back you fat diabetic homo hope you get cancer.
btw people who like horror movies as some sort of personality trait are the most boring people ever, fuck you
