Not sure what to do anymore.
I got a talking to about my "attitude" and lack of "customer service".
Excuse me for being a bit grumpy after closing the night before & having to come in at 9 AM.
Not eating properly, and then everything goes to hell (and nobody wants to help).
So I literally exploded and said some choice words very loudly that customers heard.
Been working at this place for 7 years, and have been doing this stuff for well over 20 years by now.
I didn't get fired, just asked if I wanted to keep my job position.
Not sure what else I could do in the store.
Been a cashier, a merchandiser, a salesperson, and now a telephone operator.
I don't mind getting the items that people order through our store pickup system, but trying to deal with completely stupid people on the phone grinds my gears.
I'm like why is it that I have a crappy job, when I can figure out stuff that people that make (most likely) 10x greater $ can't?
Not to mention certain departments in our store never want to answer the phone.
Receiving might be an option if it wasn't so darn hot/cold back there (there's no AC/Heat in that area.
Not sure where to even start thinking about where else to try to get a job.
Most places only seem to want part-time & even though the pay might be slightly better, I need at least $1100 a month to afford living. I live with my parents who I pay rent to, plus car payment, student loan, and so forth.
I seem to keep falling into this pattern, where I work someplace for a while, and my so called "lack" of interest/customer service seems to rear its head.
I guess maybe I think these people are wasting my time, but I do try to help them.
Sure I might not seem happy about my job, but quite honestly anybody who is happy in retail has to be on some serious drugs...
