The Retail Diaries: Day 8

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Friday was a relaxing work day for me. I signed up one person for a credit card and will be getting an extra 2 dollars added to my pay check. It makes me excited and happy. Not much happened really, which was great. It made for a relaxing day. I didn’t have to work the weekend, which was nice. This upcoming week I do have to work on Saturday, but it isn’t a big deal for me since the following Tuesday I get the day off. Ummm….. I feel bad for not having much to report from memory for Friday. Today’s work day is still fresh in my mind, but Friday is escaping me. I had a very uneventful weekend. I’m hoping for a better week this week. Until my next post!

With Love,

The Retail Diaries: Day 5

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Tuesday at work was very hectic, trying to learn everything that I could, while I was shadowing my trainer. Let’s call her N. N showed me the ropes,  but there was so much to learn and to be quite honest, for part of the time I was thinking about the sandwhich that I was going to eat on break. It is definitely not easy being a cashier,  but at the same time, it isn’t the most difficult thing either. I think all registers are different and it takes time to learn everything. Most of the time, I was just bagging groceries for N. I wasn’t really learning anything. I learn more hands on than being instructed on how to do something. Let’s face it. It’s easy to learn when you actually do something. I can listen all about it, but I won’t know what to do, until I actually do it. On another note, N got into a fight with the Cashier Leader, it’s the people who can override the registers, answer the phones, and are always listening to the walkies. Let’s call the cashier leader C. N and C got into a little disagreement, when C told a customer that she was wrong and that those shoes were in fact not on sale. The customer stalked out and N thought that C was unprofessional, keep in mind that C is pregnant. C was given a day off of work to cool down emotionally and when she came back to work, it was like nothing had ever happened. I will try to do these posts after I work the day to keep the events fresh in my mind. I am catching up today on all the ones that I owe and tomorrow will start a new week that I will try to do them after I worked. I am working 6 days this week and almost 26 hours. Until my next post!

The Retail Diaries: Day 2

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Thursday was my second day on e-learning at my new job. I worked another four-hour shift from 1 to 5pm. It was more of the same thing, except I had a sore throat that day. So, I was also popping lozenges like crazy. I brought a better snack to work also for my fifteen minutes break. I bought a Sprite and add corn chips from Tostino’s or however you spell it. I punched in and out of work on the register. My supervisor had a lunch that smelled very good and made me starving, so I took my break earlier than usual. The security at my work was monitoring a shoplifter in progress. That was very exciting, although the shoplifter did decide not to shoplift after all, so there were no cops involved. Security cannot apprehend a suspect, until they try to leave the store with the stolen merchandise. There was nothing really exciting going on at work. I was learning more and more about my company and what their policies are and things like that. I learned some things that I didn’t already know and was very impressed about the things that I learned about the company. These things I am not privy to tell you about, since I have a confidentiality agreement with the company. I am choosing not to disclose the name of the company, so that I can bypass their social media rules. I still cannot disclose specific information, but I can tell you of good and bad experiences that I am having at my job without endangering my job. I have one more retail post to do today for this week and day 4 is going to be on Monday, since I am going in at 11 am for register training.

Until my next post!
