No Weekends Off

I know when we apply for a retail job, we also sign up for working weekends. That is the most busy time of the week because most people are off of work. But, working weekends makes us so tired. Most employees who work retail are full time students who work a lot more than they should. Weekends are times that we have no class and usually have events to go to, which we normally have to miss because of work.

I can’t tell you the amount of events and get-togethers I have had to miss since I started working retail. If it’s friends birthdays, sporting events, or anything that seems fun, I had to miss them. At most retail jobs, only the first three people who take off on weekends get those days off, everyone else is denied. The people who do have off will refuse to take your shift and then you are stuck at work for hours that day, usually in the middle of the day when the event is going on.

Let’s Have Some Uniformity

Working in retail, I found out a lot of people do not know how to fold clothes. Even employees struggle with folding clothes properly. I would say folding a shirt is pretty easy, but some struggle with this simple task.

When you are shopping, you should always try to refold the clothes you unfold. It does not have to be the perfect fold you see, but you not just throwing it back is a lot more helpful. Employees already have a hard time keeping up with cleaning on a busy weekend.

Now hear me out, we have been folding out clothes at home since we were kids, do you really not know how to do it in a store too? I am sure your draws in your house do not have clothes just thrown in there, so why would you do that somewhere else?

Let’s Talk: Customer Reviews

Almost every website has reviews on them, especially retail websites. When online shopping or even going to a new business, a review is the lifeline you look for. Reviews will make or break a business. One bad review can stop people from ever going to your business.

There are different types of reviews. I will talk about funny, good, and bad reviews.

Funny: BIC Pens For Her

This review is funny and on the good side, not directly saying anything bad about the company or product. This is a funny review because she states that she wasn’t allowed to use “manly pens” before, but now they have feminine pens, she can write with her delicate hands. The underlying meaning of this review is that pens and other products should not be limited to a certain gender if they are everyday items.
