It wasn’t the customers that pissed me off when I worked retail, it was my co-workers. People can’t read a bar code to save their lives so they just shove stuff in the wrong place. Department managers apparently can’t count when it comes time for inventory. Lazy workers don’t scan stuff into the back room like they should, so stuff that’s out on the shelf sits there in the back room untouched—nobody knows it’s there! The result of everything that I just mentioned is that the back room is a huge mess that looks twice as cluttered as what you see in the second backroom picture. Managers are more concerned with making the store *look* good than actually getting product out on the floor. Oh, just stuff something else there to make it look like we have it! What do you mean, we have it in the back? You don’t have time to go get it, you have to make things look good instead! Oh, and did I mention I was the only person who bothered to rotate dairy and lunch meats? All the inventory problems meant that you’d often get a case of something in, stock it, and then later find a case in the back that expires sooner. I saw employees stock expired stuff. And checking for expired product meant you had to go through EVERY SINGLE ONE because you never knew if that product was properly rotated or not. It was pretty obvious I was one of the only ones checking the dates because I’d often bring an entire shopping cart of expired stuff to the back. The moral of the story is, check the date on your perishables BEFORE you walk out of the store with them (and the stuff in the back isn’t always the freshest despite what you might think). Just…grr. Utter incompetence pisses me off.
