Oh man I'm loving this thread so much right now. I'm a media sup at BBY (2nd job)right now, but I just got another job and my general manager heard about it somehow and he called me while I was reading this thread. He said the CEM (customer experience manager) was going to another store and that he wanted me to be the new CEM at our store. I'm going to have to think about it and see what kind of money I can get. I was going to turn in my 2 weeks notice, and I only told a couple people. They must've passed it along to him.

But yeah, retail is not fun. If you don't move up fairly quickly you're going to have to really work your a.ss off to get anywhere cause they pass over you a lot. Line level employees (non-sups and managers) get treated pretty badly unless they sell a lot, and the supervisors get yelled at weekly if they don't hit their goals.

I would advise people to stay away from retail unless you need a 2nd job.

Well sh*t let me confess.

Wal-Mart is a.ss. Before and AFTER I worked there. The end. It was even worse AFTER working there. I didn't even last a week. I know it's not enough to give a proper trial, but when I see my supervisor taking 3 hour breaks and doing NO WORK, my co-workers taking off 4 hours early leaving me to do nothing because noone fu*king around to tell me what to do, and gotta go in early for the dumbass walmart meetings where they make you sing the stupid walmart song. fu*k THAT. I got paid for 4 and a half days of training and 1.5 days of floor work. The last night I worked, I walked out like 5 hours before my shift ended, right after my lunch break. Came back 2 weeks later for the check. Never went to that store again not even to shop.
LMAO

i used to work for a wal-mart distribution center (shipping whare-house) and during there meetings the would pick 8 people, usually the new employees, and make them line up side by side and make them say "give me an w, give me an a, give me an l" and so on and so forth until tha entire wal-mart letters were shouted out.

they even got a name for tha dash (-) in between wal-mart. they called it tha squiggly. i would say tha person who has to do what they called squiggly got embarressed tha most. its hard to explain how it look but it looks fu*king retarded.

anyone who's every worked for the wal-mart coporation can testify about how retarded tha squiggly looks when done by there employees.

that was a pretty crazy read. I work at BB in the media department and now i work music, movies an games. I've worked a little over a year and now its just gettin too repetitive.

my new sup is a friend who was SWAT. i didnt bother to apply for the sup spot because i dont want upper management issues like everyone has. Even though he is a good buddy, he sits there thinking he is the sh*t everynow and then, with a bipolar attitude and its annoying, and ive told him that.


Typically, i help everywhere, and everyone things i should either be media sup or in the C.A. program.

lol sorry, I wouldn't mind grabbing another job, but when im working 40 (fulltime) i dont have time to explore for other jobs. buddy is starting at borders, so i might check that. but yeah retail is definitely getting annoying.

i worked at best buy years ago when i was dumb and young. I remember the bullsh*t managers watching every employee from a ladder in the middle of the store to make sure we were approaching EVERY customer. Even if we already approached them, if he didn't see it, he would give us sh*t about it on the walkie talkie.

I remember the sh*t salaries. The truck night working in media sucked as well. Also, the shrink (theft) was out of control and everyone was being blamed for bullsh*t. The scheduling sucked too. I would ALWAYS get called into work (though i would go because i needed the money, because hrs were so inconsistent). Best buy has a budget as far as hours go when they spread them out to employees. Full time people may only get 32 hrs a week, sometimes not even that. We were always pressured to finish putting away the truck to avoid staying late. The managers would get mad if we didn't close in time because they didn't want to pay us overtime, or even any extra time for that matter.

The pressure with the numbers was also horrible as far as sales goes. The managers would walk around and tell us how low our accessory number is, and how we must improve it. Bottom line, is I was one of there best salesman, and for the sh*t money I was making, it wasn't worth it. They tried to offer me more money, but I took another job elsewhere because I know how retail is. They may offer you a raise, but you will be fired to save them money, while they bring in some noob off the street for much less cash.

Don't get me wrong I loved working there (with the people, etc) and I worked there for over a year, but........

fu*k retail!

i was at best buy for 3 yrs. got promoted after my first year. I worked at a "ghetto" bestbuy so I've seen some & done wild sh*t (Walked right out the front door with TVs games systems etc to bangin out cashiers in the fixture room. Good ol Bestbuy 282!! I also worked at target. I was hardlines 1. It was cool as long as you weren't a closer. Closing at Target on the weekend this time of year meant your a.ss wasn't leaving until 2 or 3 in the morning.

this is off the topic cause i never worked at hollywood video but in any event. this is some fun sh*t me and my friends did before school started back when we were like 13yrs old. we decided to go trash hoping at the stores by are apartment didn't actually jump in till we hit the hollywood dumpster. threw the lid back and sitting there were $300.00 worth of unvoided hollywood gift certificates and at are age we were like jackpot. went in bought movies and previously played n64 games. then we thought bigger than that and started buying candy cause you can't really get much out of hollywood and i don't think kids came to school with an extra 20 or 30 bucks on them to buy movies and games. so we did that after school but we shutdown anybody selling candy in the school. that sh*t was fun we had a good time selling that candy and spending that money to. made us popular in school especially with the girls.
