They can't make me where their clothes. Especially when I was told before I accepted the job that as long as it looks like something they sell then I can wear it. The discount is also 20% not 40%. So basically my entire first paycheck or two would go to shirts for this place. I don't think that works for me. My whole point in working a 2nd job is to make money, not spend it in that store.

Plus no one talked to me and when I tried to talk I was ignored. gotta love being the newbie There's a lot more than just the clothes issue...it just sucked and I really don't want to work in a store again.

this girl came in the building the other night wearing these ridiculous boots! they were like the blonde relative of the furry rainbow boot. it was hilarious. i almost told her that she resembled sasquatch from the knee down, but i thought she might hit me.

you would have been an outstanding poster in the old IO!

Can I do an arm wrestling competition with Fah after the Silly walk competition? I don't want to completely humiliate her.

I KNOW she would kick my ass in the arm wreslte!

We have 2 possible buyers on the tickets but I told one of them they were ticketfast and I explained what ticketfast is....haven't heard back from him. He and his buddies were extremely interested and would pay more than what I was asking for in order to ensure they would get them. I said that they could just pay the asking price but $10 less because I wanted to sell them. But now I don't know if they're extremely interested in ticketfast. I haven't told the other person that detail just yet. But she's also very, very interested.

If we sell these tickets we owe LivLuv a million bootlegs because she put an ad on her schools webpage for us.

Did your shirt have something logo-esque that would make a customer think of a different store? That could be anything from a pocket to an alligator or a guy on a horse playing polo.

Why did that ignore you? That's just rude. Most people who work in stores don't act like that!

i wish people would ignore me at work. i keep getting these idiots asking me what i'm listening to.

i'm going to make a big sign that says "no i am not listening to the dropkick murphys" and put it out no matter what i listen to, even if it's obviously not DKM.

no it was just a plain long sleeve v neck with a collar and a tshirt underneath. I would never wear anything like that, even in a store that sold that stuff.

I used to be a store trainer at Maxx. I expect more from people when I'm new. Plus, one person was just outwardly rude. I was told by one manager to take stuff from the fitting room rack and see if I could find it to put it away. This stoooopid lady chimes in saying that "we don't have all night for her to figure it out and I want to get out on time...." She also said that a good job for me would be to clean the bathroom. I guess they have no cleaning service that does that like every other retail job I've had. So they all take turns But how rude to say that while I'm standing there. He agreed that it would take me too long to find the stuff but said that I shouldn't have to go into the bathroom and clean on my first day.

We randoooomers were never ever welcome in IO That's why we stuck around here. We used to see threads all the time, and still do occassionally, about closing this "stupid" thread.
